Friday night alternate jersey:

One thing I like that I didn't notice at the unveiling last night is the not tacky inclusion of the hockey sticks in the jet. They're there but not slapped in there or overly in your face.

I didn't put the Wingman and Top Gun logos because they are STH related. the Ice Flyers STH are called Wingmen and the Top Gun program is a program which provides extra perks to those STH who refer new ones or buy seats and donate them to the military.

The only question: why the alternating silver/gold? Otherwise, this is pretty solid as these things go. I actually like the subtle hockey sticks in the plane.

Also, where did this fit into the Ice Pilots history?

The final two seasons of the Ice Pilots, 06-07 and 07-08.

They didn't really give the reason for the addition of grey but I think it works. It allows for having the plane look normal and not be colored weird or have it be the only grey in the logo.

They wanted to form their own identity. Some people would see the old logo and think things like, "huh, never seen that Blue Angels insignia before."

I don't like the gold. Make it yellow and this becomes a million times better.

I think they should have kept consistent with previous look and had the jet in Blue Angels colours.

Would have been awesome... I remember the ice pilots final season in the E ... those road blues they had with the jets flying on the hem of the jerseys were SHARP!

Looks sharp. My only issue is in the wordmark only version, the way the ICE FLYERS is set. In addition to being skewed upwards to match the PENSACOLA mark, ICE FLYERS is also italicized. The vertical lines should match in both word marks, but they don't.

Otherwise, I'm pretty impressed.

And nope, that's not Demonized.

Awwe...I didn't know y'all cared about my hometown's hockey history so much!!! :P

That's actually a pretty spiffy identity package they got going on there. Between this and the Blue Wahoos stuff, look like P'cola creepin' on ah come up.

(And Geoff...did you move back to Pensacola?)

Nope, I came back to town for the unveiling/coach introduction/say "hi" to friends since I worked for the team last season. I'm also still in town visiting some other friends.

That logo was the most recent of the Ice Pilots logos and the one that was in use at the time the franchise folded. it came after the black logo with the multiple jets.

You tryin' to step on my Pensacola hockey turf? WTF is this?

But seriously, post more. Sept 2011 but 9 posts?

So what's your problem? so what if I only have 9 posts.

FYI, this is a new account, my second. I lost/forgot my credentials for my old account when my old computer crashed last summer. My previous account had about 1300 posts on it.

And now, a visual jersey history to match the logos posted above. From my own personal collection. :hockeysmiley:

There was another style after this one using a more subdued color scheme, different striping, and the same logo. I don't have an example of that.

Also features the main crest on the back of the jersey, much smaller sized and placed above where the player's name would go.

Different home and away shirts during this era.

Old Friday night jersey.

Last year the home and away Ice Flyers featured a different striping pattern. I only have the original as it has the much more unique jet striping on the bottom.

Enjoy!

The Friday night twi posted is from year three. There wasn't one in the first season and this was the Friday night in season 2. Huge photo alert:

Here's the Ice Pilots jersey twi is missing. It was the Philadelphia Flyers cut at that time and was used during the two seasons that Tim Kerr owned the Ice Pilots.

Chill man, it was a joke.
