One of the NHL's Original Six is going with one of its original looks.

On Thursday, the Chicago Blackhawks unveiled the "Back in Black" jerseys they will wear Jan. 1 when they take on the Boston Bruins at Notre Dame Stadium for the Winter Classic:

According to James Neveau of NBC Chicago, the black-and-white shirts pay homage to the Blackhawks' first home jersey, which they wore in 1926. 

Chicago will have a different look on the ice and on the bench considering the team announced the firing of three-time Stanley Cup-winning head coach Joel Quenneville on Tuesday. Jeremy Colliton assumed the head coaching position.
