This exact style would only be worn one season, as in 1985-86 the waist striping was moved upwards so that a white stripe would now appear below the yellow and blue stripes. Additionally, the waist and sleeve stripes would now also be trimmed in red so that the striping better matched the names, numbers and cresting, which were trimmed in red in 1984-85, while the stripes oddly were not.
The updated version with the red trim would only be worn for two seasons after which the "Blues" wordmark above the bluenote would be discontinued. The version with the bluenote as the main crest would then be worn through the 1993-94 season.
Bonus jersey: Today's bonus jersey is a 1984-85 Hartford Whalers Mike Liut jersey. This would be the only season Liut would wear this specific style of jersey, as the next season Pucky the Whale would disappear for good from the shoulders of the jerseys and the green stripe at the bottom of the jersey would also vanish, making the bottom of the sweaters white from then on.
