The early speculation is that the Coyotes will unveil a “throwback” jersey that at least gives a nod to their inaugural uniform, complete with the kachina styled Coyote logo. Here’s an awesome concept from graphic designed S7Dsn:
While it may not be the most iconic logo or jersey in sports history… it certainly does have a nostalgic appeal.
Here’s the official press release from the Coyotes’ concerning their new uniforms:

We're not holding our breath... but maybe if the Coyotes go back to their vintage jersey, we can convince Keith Tkachuk to make a comeback?
