Recommended Posts

Just of note, I've noticed that the Royals have been wearing a Blackhawk style hockey pant design that when with their 3rd jersey last season but the stripes are blue and white.

Guess they're doing what Pittsburgh did with theirs? Must have been a lot of demand for that jersey... it is a nice one!

swift current has a new collar on their jersey. They used to have the slug-style collar, now it looks like it's the stanrd two colours with the fabric piece at the neck

It still baffles me that the CHL didn't just use the neck fabric for the league logo a la the NHL. It would've freed up alot of clutter on the front of the jersey. So that the captian's "C" or "A" isn't basically on their shoulders

The WHL league logo (or the OHL and QMJHL, for that matter) are a little too detailed to be shrunk down that small. The shield works perfectly for the NHL on the collar fabric.

Also, Seattle's whites still have the vector meaning that both of their regular jerseys are still the old jerseys. Wonder why that is. My guess is financial.

That would be my guess as well. Junior hockey clubs don't always have extra cash to spend on new jersey sets each season. They'd have to get as much life as possible out of the old ones before switching.

Here's a photo I found of Swift Current that highlights this issue. Their captain is on the right with the old style jersey, alternate captain on the left with the new style jersey. New placement for the "C", Reebok script and new collar.

Erie is wearing a specialty jersey on November 5th.

Erie is my favorite CHL team, but really they have some UGLY alternate jerseys! Not sure why they don't just recolor their normal ones...

Apparently, those were their "pink" jerseys for breast cancer as they were auctioned off after being worn.

I saw that the other day too. I think their from 2009/10. London always has cool warm-up jerseys. I still love the ones with the bricks from 2008/09.

Something cool I noticed today while searching for a picture of the 67's barberpole jersey.

See that in the top right? I rendered that jersey :)

Isn't it weird how so many teams just suddenly started using the #97 in promo materials featuring a uniform graphic? Strange coincidence

I love the Blades jerseys except for the pants. The black/navy/whatever it is doesn't work with the royal blue.

The Olympiques jerseys look bad. Something of note is that it lacks the hem stripe that that Kings have.

In contrast, the Armada's jerseys look stunning.

I agree, the Armada jerseys are great while the Olympiques jerseys are just horrble, a major fail by Gatineau with that.
