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.

Well, the sports teams at Hazel McCallion public school (grades 6-8) are known as the Hurricanes

New home and road jerseys for the Wheat Kings;

I am so happy to see the wheat stalks back, this set is such an improvement over what they had before.

 

(Though it does look like the stripes are printed and not stitched, which sucks).

Henderson going chrome dome at home.

There's enough metallic silver in Henderson's logo that it kind of works, but the flat gray fabric still clashes too much with it imo. Now, a chrome helmet with a metallic silver jersey a la Vegas's gold alternate, that would be...interesting? Maybe?

I don't think its bad, especially for an AHL team, although I think black breezers would have worked wonders here. The dark gray feels somewhat off.

I'm guessing they're the same ones that Vegas is using, even if the lighting is doing a trick.

Contrasting nameplates need to go away and never, ever, ever, ever come back.  Otherwise, I really like that look.

Wait, did they ditch the chrome domes or are the lighting skewing the images?

I'm guessing they're going to be used for certain games, like when Nashville originally wore gold helmets only on Saturdays, because those are definitely dark gray.

Maybe they're just not ready yet?

That could be it also. They might be saving them for the regular season.

Yeah one of their announcement tweets was oddly specific in saying

 

Quote

HSK will wear the chrome helmets during every home game at Orleans Arena

 

so I could see them waiting for the regular season, especially with VGK as their parent team.

Maybe, but their announcement pictures had seven different helmets and if all the helmets weren't ready yet, seven seems like a weird number to get in one shipment (or they just had one and changed out the front helmet numbers for each different player picture but that seems like a lot of work).

Seems unnecessary and pretty poor execution of the Erie Otters "chrome" helmet.

 

Seems like if college and AHL teams can do chrome or gold, an OHL team should be able to figure it out.

Not often does a new-ish team founded in 2020 use contrasting nameplates.

Henderson's numbers are illegible on the AHLTV feed. Also, while I like the chrome helmet in theory, that makes 4 shades of silver/gray/black which is just one too many. The black upper arms make the helmet seem stranger too.

Another anniversary jersey for the Gatineau Olympiques.  Throwing back to the great Hull Olympiques of the late 80's, 90's
