Players in the "wrong" uniforms

I'd be very surprised if this hasn't been posted here already, but since he's currently playing in the Stanley Cup Finals:

Zdeno Chara in his rookie season; he played 25 games with the Islanders in 1997-98, their 3rd & last season in the notorious fishstick jerseys. I may be wrong, but unless there's someone I'm forgetting, Chara is the final active player who wore those things in a game.

 

(as I typed this post Chara blocked a shot with his mouth and had to leave the game... Fisherman's curse? 😮)

Do you have a pic of this guy in the actual Gorton’s jersey?

Not likely. Chara first played in the 1997-98 season. The fisherman logo was retired after the 96-97 season. The 97-98 season, they wore the fisherman jerseys with the classic logo exclusively. I doubt there's even a picture of him with a jersey at the draft since he went in the third round.

Yet, I’m fine with it, because it’s at least a traditional jersey design and colors. Odd, but not as jarring as him in a Hornets’ jersey.

 

I'm in agreement with you. It was certainly less jarring than the Hornets uniform, which made it seem like he was a middle-aged person trying to masquerade as a high schooler.

It reminds me of a 45 year old Charlie Hough wearing teal in 1993.

I had similar thoughts about a lady I saw on the bus a few days back...like a high schooler or coed got hit by an aging beam while she was waiting.

Two teammates who belong in BC Lions orange, but both wearing green this year.

 

Solomon Elimimian spent all 7 of his prior CFL seasons as a BC Lion.  Now with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Emmanuel Arceneaux spent all 8 of his prior CFL seasons with the Lions.  Still not used to seeing him in Roughrider green this year.
