AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack unveil new uniforms for 2016-17 season

One of the junior teams I've worked with uses that template, and honestly it's not that bad. Has some real potential, especially if it stays away from the NHL. 

 

But, I wish they would've un-stadium-ed it and straightened the stripes and numbers.

 

The red is also a bit much, and with nothing but wordmarks, it looks a bit lacking. As Cleveland, and before them Colorado, showed us: If you have a diagonal word jersey, you need a hemline stripe to support it. This doesn't have enough of one.

Meh, I don't love 'em, don't hate 'em.

 

On a related note, white will only be worn at home until the holiday break, then they wear them on the road. Sounds like the AHL is moving towards a permanent dark at home rule.

 

Hasn't this been the m.o for a few years?  Or am I completely misremembering?

Wordmark on the red alt is illegible from any distance. Should have gone white with a navy outline.

 

I don't think the AHL has done the midseason jersey switch since the 2001 IHL fold-in, at least. I know the IHL did it a few times in the '90s. Christmas seems awfully early to do it.

They haven't done it the last 2 seasons, at least. I looked around online, and apparently they used to do a switch. Looked around onlineased on what I'm seeing, it looks like @Sodboy13 is right, and they stopped about the IHL fold in, but I can't find anything conclusive.

 

I wasn't aware that they used to do it, so maybe it is just a return of alternating. The holidays do seem like an early time to switch, if it's just to showcase both at home.

 

I'm still inclined to think it's leading to a permanent switch. I know some people hated it, but the NHL's move to dark-at-home was pretty well recieved, as a whole.

I don't think the AHL ever did a mid season switch. I know that from 1997 to 2002 the AHL was White at home. They wore Dark at home for about two or three years, and then went back to white at home until this year. A lot of teams had colored alternate jerseys just to switch it up. The Wolf Pack wore a "True Blue" Rangers jersey as their alternate for a few years. When they were the Whale they had a White home, Blue road, and a Green alternate. After they went back to the Wolf Pack they brought in a Red alternate jersey just to change it up. This year they will adopt the ECHL/OHL jersey rule which is White for half the season and then switch to the Dark after the holiday break.

Players who enter into a fight prior to, at, or immediately following the drop of the puck for a faceoff will be assessed an automatic game misconduct in addition to other penalties assessed.

Great rule, long time coming. Get the sorry-ass staged fights out.

The mid-season switch has been common in the OHL, ECHL, and I assume the rest of the CHL but I don't know for sure. 

 

The AHL mid-season switch is one of their new rule changes for this season.

Yes you're right. They have the mid-season jersey switch up rule throughout the CHL.

On Aug 8th, the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack unveiled new uniforms for the 2016-17 season. All three jerseys (Home/White + Road/Blue + Alternate/Red) are based on their parent club's (NY Rangers) Stadium Series jersey design from the other year.
