As the Boston Bruins prepare to defend their 2011 Stanley Cup Championship, fans are gearing up for the new season as well, and one of the best ways to do that is to find a fresh hockey jersey. After all, there are a new set of heroes who have written themselves into Boston lore over the last several months – Tim Thomas by putting together one of the greatest goaltending seasons of all time, Patrice Bergeron by scoring the Cup-winning goal in Game Seven, and of course team captain Zdeno Chara, who hoisted the Stanley Cup and lifted the Bruins alongside Boston’s other pro sports teams, who have all won championships in recent years.
But where are the best places to shop for a hockey jersey online? It turns out there are a few really good options, offering a wide selection, superior service, and sweet discounts as well. Let’s take a look at 4 specific sites where you should do your shopping, including an incredible offer on authentic, customized jerseys at the bottom!
Boston Bruins jerseys at Fanatics
Fanatics offers a a huge selection not only of jerseys, but Boston Bruins t-shirts, hats, and all sorts of other merchandise, but these three jerseys caught my eye, especially the somewhat unique one in the middle:

They sure don’t make ‘em like Bobby Orr anymore, who was not only the greatest Boston Bruin of all time, but the greatest defenseman in all of hockey, too. His 8 straight Norris Trophies stand as a mind-boggling achievement that will never be duplicated. Is there a better way to pay tribute to Boston’s hockey history than with this authentic throwback jersey from Mitchell & Ness? Of course not…

When it comes to getting yourself an NHL jersey, IceJerseys is always a good place to check out – they have a broad catalog covering all NHL (and many international) teams, and their customization services are second to none (I used them for the jersey I wear to Nashville Predators games).

Cam Neely Boston Bruins Vintage Replica Jersey 1991 (Home)
Not far behind Bobby Orr in Boston’s pantheon of hockey heroes stands Cam Neely, the NHL’s consummate power forward. This 1991-era Vintage replica jersey features reinforced stitching on the shoulders & armholes, double shoulders, and CCM Vintage/NHL neck label. The chest & shoulder crests are pro tackle twill with embroidery; there’s a CCM embroidered logo on the hem, with ‘NEELY’ and ’8′ sewn in 2 color twill on the back of the jersey, and Cam’s ‘A’ sewn in twill on the front.
Boston Bruins Women’s Premier Replica Home Jersey
Lady hockey fans can have a tough time finding an NHL jersey that’s tailored to their needs, so this Premier Replica is cut with a more feminine silhouette. Being a Premier Replica, this jersey features an embroidered twill front chest logo and screen printed shoulder logos (heat applied), and polyester pique front body & sleeves. It also has an embroidered NHL Shield, embroidered Reebok Vector on the back neck & sleeve, and inserts & piping made of 100% polyester mesh.
Boston Bruins Heritage Away 1949 Sweater
This is some old-school classic stuff, right here, a 100% acrylic sweater from Reebok by Roger Edwards. It features a felt Bruins logo stitched onto the sweater, vintage woven label on the lower front hem, and a ribbed crew neck collar & cuff. While others are reminiscing about Orr, Neely or Esposito, you’ll clamor for the days of Milt Schmidt, Bill Quackenbush, and Woody Dumart!
Shop.NHL.com is the obvious choice for many fans, thanks to their gigantic selection of official apparel.

My question is, now that there are some new hockey heroes in Boston, will we start to see more jerseys customized in their honor? Will names like Marchand, Bergeron, and Horton start sprinkling their way through the stands?
