Not a logo change, but it appears to be the end of an era in Chicago, if I'm reading it correctly and the Wolves are no longer producing over-the-air telecasts. Streaming subscription only. 


It's not like they'd have to send a TV crew far: Rosemont, Rockford, and Milwaukee all play one-third of their schedules against each other. The AHL is not a very well-planned league.

I NEED THIS SHIRT. It's like when Chinese people want to wear English because it looks cool but the shirts just say, like, "Brooklyn Nonstop Orange Juice Intramurals." Now with algorithms we do it to ourselves. 

This shirt made my day

Did last year's jersey still have the phantom yoke and the trim to nowhere, or is the removal of them also new to this year's jersey?


The removal is new this year. Also the armpit colours are gone, so the template switch has been a big improvement for the Hitmen. 


We’ll see if the bad number font stuck around though.

Really, really horrible new road jerseys for the Estevan Bruins of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.  White breezers should never, ever be used.

I was just coming here to talk about this. The NOB and numbers are yellow on white and as someone who used to do colour in this league, I don't know how legible it would be from a distance.




Also the weird SP brand jersey cut where the stripes don't go all the jersey (and socks) doesn't help either.

In other Jr. A news, the Calgary Canucks unveiled their home jerseys during their first game of the season. It looks like they cut the sleeves off the white jersey and stitched them to the blue jersey.


They didn't wear their new jerseys during the preseason and it turns out it was because the jerseys showed up just hours before this game. Their Twitter account posted a picture of the boxes when they arrived at the arena at 1:27 pm with puck drop being at 7 pm that night.


The Canmore Eagles first game isn't until Wednesday and they also wore their (now) old jerseys in the preseason, so I guess we won't see anything until closer to then if not until the game starts.


Also the Yorkton Terriers unveiled their new home jersey and it's not great.




There's no decent picture of the back of the jersey, but the NOB is an orange namebar with black font.
