AHL/ECHL/Minor/Junior League Hockey Changes

Recommended Posts

I missed this from a couple weeks ago.

 

The 2021-22 relocation/expansion Blackfalds Bulldogs of the Jr. A AJHL unveiled their jerseys.

 

I'll give them the credit for admitting there was no real reason for the pattern and not NikeSpeaking it.

Is that an Adidas jersey made by CCM?  Who would have thought going with the Adidas collar would be the better choice.

Many jersey manufacturers have copied the Adidas collar. Athletic Knit, CCM, many others. Same trend when the Reebok Edge template was introduced.

Yeah, once you get to Jr. A and lower, you'll see "proprietary" templates and designs recreated by whoever the jersey supplier for the league is or whoever the team gets their jerseys from.

 

Here are two "Adidas" jersey made by SP. Check the collars.

Again, another logo ruined by the forced inclusion of a stick.  They could also drop the wordmark from the jerseys and the shield/dog by itself would look great.

Erie Otters 25th Anniversary alternate:

Big "meh" from me. Seems like their uniforms just keep getting worse and worse. They took a step in the right direction a few years ago bringing back the otter logo. But still botched it by forcing "Erie" in the helmet. Maybe I'm biased because I grew up with the red/blue/gold look.

Did we miss this one? Blainville-Boisbriand has a new 10 year anniversary logo and special edition third jersey with an alt logo they've used sometimes in the past.

 

Anniversary logo on... the... socks?

 

What a mess.

Another throwback for Gatineau:

That would make an incredible St. Louis Blues jersey.

The moose leg is the single best rink-bound projectile in hockey.

 

Weird seeing Flin Flon wear black, though. That's an awful idea.

The 2021-22 relocation/expansion Blackfalds Bulldogs of the Jr. A AJHL unveiled their jerseys.

Interestingly enough, the OHL's Hamilton Bulldogs unveiled their "Project Stealth" jersey today, with a familiar look.

They, however, did NikeSpeak it.

Quote

Our Stealth jerseys will represent our philosophy on and off the ice, characterizing our swiftness, velocity and strategy be it for plays, decisions or new opportunities. We decided to try something new in this design and use black & white sublimation and rather than restricted to one colour we’ve got the static grey & white combo to trim this Stealth look.

 

 

Interestingly, they brought back the shoulder logo from the AHL Bulldogs (A logo which hasn't been seen for five years) for the helmet.

The Bulldogs brand is crap. They should have rebranded as the Tigers when they dropped to junior, provided Victoriaville and Medicine Hat allowed it. I think that's why we got stuck with the Mississauga Steelheads when Hurricanes would have been much better (though leaving them as the Majors would have been better still).

To the above, is it still true that CCM is owned by Reebok, which is then owned by adidas or did adidas sell them off?

CCM was sold off by Adidas in 2017 to a private Canadian equity firm, Birch Hill Equity Partners.

I've always been fond of Mustangs 😁

Yeah, but the longtime mayor of Mississauga was known as "Hurricane Hazel.," so it would have been a tribute to her. I looked, and she is 99, and very much not dead.
