Boston Bruins Boston Bruins Jersey History: 1971 - 1972

The Bruins would utilize Wilson dureen knit jerseys for the 1971-72 season that featured a gold shoulder style and a neck tie-down with three eyelets on each side. For the most part, white laces were used on black sweaters and black laces were used on white sweaters.

I believe the Bruins would only use one set of jerseys for both home (white) and road (black) throughout the season.

It is believed the Bruins would use a new set of jerseys for the playoffs that would be carried over and used the following regular season.
