2005-2007 Reebok "Vector" Years
2005-2006 & 2006-2007
Following the 2004-2005 NHL Lockout the jersey branding was changed to Reebok for all home, away and 3rd jerseys and featured the Reebok Vector on the back of the neck. Other than the branding change the design of the home, away and 3rd jersey did not change from the 2003-2004 season. For the 2006-2007 a set tag was printed on the fight strap of each jersey in addition to the normal hem tag on some jerseys. This set tag was applied after the season by the staff of the Blue Line Team Store.
On 10/7/05 during the first period of the first home game the Jackets jerseys featured an NHL Cares Patch. These jerseys were auctioned off by the NHL and NHLPA to support the victims of hurrican Katrina in New Orleans. There were no set tags on these jerseys, but on the back side of the crest of the game worn jerseys you will find 10-7-05 and JPH hand written by Jamie Healy the Jackets Assistant Equipment Manager.
