    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    It's up for preorder on the NHL shop and, interestingly, the hem striping is positioned lower on the Fanatics version. Slightly improves the design by giving the logo and numbers more room to breathe. Buuuut I don't think I can get past the subliminated crest. Well played, NHL.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    The Ducks are now taking preorders from local fans only. And in the most classic OITGDNHL fashion, their Anaheim Team Store website keeps crashing.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    It's only being worn this season. Word is they're bringing back the orange third next year. ... And then that discussion can start aaaaallll over again

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    Couldn't handle the main thread being Duckjacked? Anyway, after sleeping on this thing; I like it. I appreciate what they were going for but they haven't quite nailed it. There are one too many colours and the combination of diagonal hemstripe and coloured yoke is a bit much. I feel that they should either have gone with eggplant as the body colour or, if the uniform has to be black? Ditch the eggplant stripes. I say that but I also kind of dig the subtle use of it, it looks better in some photos than it does others. I like it better after seeing Hebert wearing it, so, yeah. It's a downgrade from the orange third, and yet it's still better than the regular set. As a one year anniversary thing it's fine. I'll be getting one. Heck, I'm almost tempted to make the trek to Anaheim just to see these in a game, might be my only chance to see the old colours in action.

    Apparently this jersey will only be worn this season. I had a weird feeling that might be the case. EDIT: Orange third returning in 2019-20.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    Still kinda processing this thing. It's surreal that we're getting what is essentially a brand new Mighty Ducks jersey after all these years. It's not quite the hotchpotch I was dreading, so there's that. Gonna have to sleep on this.

    And yet, no teasers or anything beyond Icethetics' source indicating that it'll be revealed today. Still; T-minus one hour minimum.

    Wow, so it's not going to be a half-arsed pregame reveal for once.

    AHL: San Jose Barracuda Change Logo and Uniforms

    It's better, but not by much. That whole brand is just very awkwardly designed.

    You'll know as soon as we all do. But here's my prediction for the Ducks thirds: they will be revealed moments before gametime, with no fanfare whatsoever, and then they'll lose while wearing their shiny new thirds in a spectacularly lopsided game.

    You wanted an actual hurricane warning flag? You got an actual hurricane warning flag. And frankly, it looks awkward as a primary crest. Other than that, the uniform's fine I guess.

    I liked that as a third. Not so much when it stealthily swapped places with the regular home jersey and when it influenced them to go with a wordmark logo for their rebrand and aw geez here I go again It's a nice enough design, but it's also very generic. Any team could have done their own version of it.

    It's a closed group. Also, I think you've mistaken the source. Gametime.com is a company that does playground equipment.

    That logo is basically the whole reason I became a fan. But between the lack of fanfare for the orange third, their blatant refusal to wear in in the playoffs, and more recently its retirement, I've frankly had it up to here with all the teasing. My interest in this stupid team has already dwindled over the last year or so and I'm getting to a point where I might just walk away.

    I could see that working, but so far the vague description sounds like it's got "focus group" written all over it.

    Icethetics has an update on the Ducks third jersey. Sadly if this is accurate, then the orange thirds will not be returning, and they'll instead be going with another black jersey. On the plus side, the Mighty Ducks crest is returning. But apparently this new third will also make use of some retro colours. I hope whatever they come up with isn't some forced mess - the regular set is already bad enough.

    That's still better than it being on the uniforms.

    Re: Photobucket

    Oddly, while I saw the placeholder images in other members' signatures, I've not personally had that issue with mine despite not being a premium member on Photobucket. Or at least, I don't think I have. Having said that, the site is absurdly ad heavy to the point where it slows my browser down to a crawl and is barely usable. I think I'll be making the switch.
