AHL/ECHL/Minor/Junior League Hockey Changes

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen anyone mention this at all anywhere, but NHL 21 came out at the end of last week and they have what appear to be the new uniforms of the Henderson Silver Knights, Vegas' new farm team going forward:

...Assuming these are the real deal and not just some mockups EA made to hold off until the real jerseys come out, I honestly don't know what I expected.

This is the same company that has to patch in jerseys that get revealed before the game's release and who still are missing a good chunk of stuff. I think it's fairly easy to assume this is just shameless reuse of the VGK jerseys on their part.

Yeah, there's no way they use gold like that. I bet you could replace that with silver (and maybe remove the red) and get a closer look to what will probably happen.

Question for junior hockey fans back east.  Noticed Charlottetown Islanders home opener was last night.  Looks like they have new black jerseys but could not find any media surrounding release of a new jersey.  This is the new third and they are sticking with the gold jersey as the primary right?

If I had to guess, that looks like it might actually be Charlottetown's new home jersey as the sleeve and waist striping matches that of the white jerseys (just different order of colors) that I've seen in person two weeks ago when they played the Eagles here.

Looks like it, they haven't worn the gold one so far this year

Just because a jersey is revealed before the game is released, doesn't mean it was revealed before internal content deadlines.

I never realized the WBS Penguins had such a beautiful logo in their arsenal, even though it's apparently been around for SIX YEARS!

Yeah, noticed since the posting they have continued to wear the black.  Just find it strange because I believe it was just last year that Charlottetown had introduced new uniforms and the gold jersey was the new primary dark.

Those are just Golden Knights jerseys with the Henderson logo slapped on it. The game got it wrong.

 

Silver Knights uniforms have several differences:

A lot of shades of silver. But still, beautiful uniforms!

 

The Silver Knights are silver. The Golden Knights are also silver for now, at least primarily.

 

But the VGK's new alt is a direct reverse of their white road. I expect the golds to be the new homes next year.

Anyone think that the grey jersey isn't dark enough?

 

It's not remotely dark enough.

Better view of front and back of both jerseys...

We need an official moratorium on contrasting nameplates, especially on white jerseys.

This is probably just bias but I feel like the flyers are the only team that can make it work because there's at least some tradition to it.

It can be tough to read the players names off of those black nameplates with gold letters. The wider the distance, the more the gold loses contrast.

New uniforms for Avalanche AHL affiliate Colorado Eagles. Looks to be a Avs blue/black set. The Promos are FILLED with bad marketing speak that makes me cringe, but it's a sold design.

I Just wish the Eagles would settle on a single color scheme. They have worn Black/Silver, Black/Yellow, Navy/Red/Yellow, Black/Royal blue, and Avs Blue/Black all in the past decade.

I think adding yellow to the black and blue color scheme would really help connect the Eagles with their visual history and as some much needed contrast contrast. I like that they went with the lighter shade of blue.
