Winter Classic 2023 – The Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins square off at Fenway Park on Monday in the 2023 NHL Winter Classic; Puck drop is scheduled for January 2nd at 2:00 PM ET.
In this article, I’ll take a look at the full list of Winter 2023 logos for the event itself, the Bruins and Penguins logos and uniforms, ice formations, and other interesting things.
Winter Classic 2023
The 2023 NHL Winter Classic logo features Fenway Park’s famous Green Monster, chalkboard-style ice with “WINTER” on the front above and “CLASSIC” below.

Other images continue the Fenway Park green theme as you create a few baseball diamond designs. This applies to logos that match (or combine) retro-themed Penguins and Bruins logos, as well as event graphics.
The Bruins combine several eras to create their jerseys, thanks to the origin of their “spoked-B” logo and the famous shoulder graphic of the previous generation.
The Bruins 2023 Winter Classic jersey is black with yellow shoulders and thick alternating yellow and black stripes down each arm and on the waist. The collar is black with a lace collar and the NHL shield logo is placed above the straps.

The chest features “BOSTON” emblazoned in vintage white in a font inspired by the original Spoked-B logo from 1948, which was originally designed as the team’s 25th anniversary logo. Below this logo is the Bruins bear head patch that was worn from 1976 to 1995; here the symbol has been changed from yellow and black to brown. This central symbol is placed under the word BOSTON. The team says the logo concept featured on the front of the jersey is an homage to New England Amateur Hockey.
This design takes the “B” from the original “spoken-B” from the Bruins’ 1948-49 season, which was designed to commemorate the team’s 25th year in the NHL and was first worn on a single white uniform. year (later used again in the Bruins’ appearance in the 2010 Winter Classic). A new, distinctive shape inspired by the letter “B” was created to remove the city’s name.
Below the “BOSTON” portion of the logo is a bear’s head, which was worn as the shoulder pad on Bruins home and road jerseys from 1976-1995. New for 2021 is the yellow Reverse Retro livery. The NHL says, “The biggest type of wordplay is the small memory of the New England hockey press.”
Penguins To Play Bruins In 2023 Winter Classic
The visiting Pittsburgh Penguins will be in town for the first day in NHL history.
The Penguins 2023 Winter Classic jersey is a classic white with two horizontal black stripes on the chest and each sleeve. The shoulders are black, as is the neck, and an extra line is added at the end of each arm and at the waist. On the chest is a red and black “P” logo similar to the logo worn by Pittsburgh’s first NHL team, the Pirates.
The cursive “P” logo is based on the Pittsburgh Pirates uniform worn from 1925 to 1928. The Pirates were the first NHL team from Pennsylvania, and despite using the same name as the baseball team, the NHL Pirates won. baseball batsmen. leading to the wearing of the black and gold color scheme over two decades ago.
Bruins To Host Nhl Winter Classic At Fenway Park In 2023
Since the first game in Pirates hockey history was played in Boston (a 2-1 victory on November 26, 1925), the parallels between the Bruins and the Pirates-inspired Penguins team are apt. Additionally, when the Penguins changed their colors from blue and white to black and gold in 1980, the Bruins protested—the Penguins cited the Pirates’ 1925 uniform as a model, the colors used in Pittsburgh before being adopted by the Bruins. Objection withdrawn. It’s a story I covered in detail in my book, Fabric of the Game: Stories About NHL Names, Logos and Uniforms, co-authored with Todd Radom.

A pitch at Fenway Park puts a dot down the line between third and home in shallow right field. This makes the ice better aligned with the Green Monster in the left area. Speaking of left field, there’s a diamond-shaped outfield with diamond-inspired baseball logos featuring Winter Classic-themed logos for both teams.

DeSmith’s mask shows the Pirates’ Roberto Clemente on the right and Ralph Keener on the left. In the background is a teddy bear from the movie Ted, set in Boston, which DeSmith says is related to Ted Williams.
As always, I’m also leaving a look at the history of the Winter Olympics logo to give you an idea of how this year’s design stacks up against the rest.
The Winter Classic follows a small picture; as shown in the image above, each of the fourteen editions of this event uses the same “Winter” text on the front of the design, the difference being the main focus of the host city/state/region (see 2012, 2017) or the region itself (see 2009, 2014, 2023). The result is a template that doesn’t look like a template (again, I’m looking at you Super Bowls XLV through LVII).
