When will the next Nash #25 return?
By Ryan Kiesel | NHL.com| March 14, 2018 12:57:37This is what it looked like at the NHL Awards:A little bit of the dust was left on the Nash #21, as the team unveiled a new version of the iconic No. 21 on Thursday.
The new Nash #27 is a much different look than the previous one.
The original #27 was the only No. 22 with the new design.
Here’s a closer look at the Nash’s redesigned #27:While the team hasn’t announced when the new #27 will return to the NHL lineup, they did say the team is in talks with a number of manufacturers to make it available.
“We’re in discussions with a lot of manufacturers,” General Manager Rob Blake told reporters at the annual awards ceremony.
“There are a lot that are interested in us doing something like that.
We haven’t gotten to that point yet.
It would be really cool if we could get that out there as quickly as possible, so we can get everybody up and running.”
While the Nash has a much more modern look, it’s not a big step up from the #22 or #23 that the team used to run.
“I think the whole point of the redesign was to give it a modern look and make it a much better-looking car, but it’s still very much a Nash,” Blake said.
“So we’re trying to keep that tradition and look as close to the original as we can.
But the new Nash looks great.
The car feels great.”
The #27 looks more like a traditional No. 23.
It has the same front fender line, the same rear fender and tailgate, and the same wheels and tires.
