Someone on the other board I frequent said it looks like an emoji. I think that's pretty accurate.

The B-Devs looks like a raccoon with horns. Man, they missed a slam dunk opportunity.

I guess that answers the question I had when I read the article posted about Adidas selling CCM last week, the AHL will still be branded CCM this season for their jerseys. From the article I read, they somewhat alluded to the CCM jerseys being re-branded to Adidas. But that won't happen, at least for 17-18.

A better look at the B-Devils jersey. I'm slowly coming around on it. Normally I can't stand shoulder yolks but this works here. Honestly, remove the helmet from the devil and this is actually pretty good:

Jesus thats miserable. How does a bloke in his mid 20's feel about throwing that abomination over his shoulders and try and take himself seriously. You might aswell care about the name on the back as the one on the front is hideous.

I'll let you know how I feel about it when I get a couple of them.

The Wings one grew on me, glad I bought JB's last TI 54.

Same here.  I now love the Red Wings CC.  When people posted the gamers they received from the game, I thought they looked nice and clean and sharp.  It was probably the whitest shade of white I have ever seen on a jersey.

I believe that the CCM deal with the AHL runs through the 2020-2021 season, so their branding should likely still be in placed through then.

I had heard multiple theories on which jerseys would be worn this coming season, but based on the B-Devils pic, it looks like the AHL will wear the new "Adizero" cut this season just branded as CCM.

I disagree that the jerseys presented are the new Adidas jerseys for one major reason:

The collar doesn't look like total garbage.

I might be wrong, but I do think ti is the Adizero jerseys just with different collars.  I am basing this on the construction of it in the pictures of the white that resemble more of the Adizero construction than the Edge temple the AHL has been using judging by the seams.

I dont recall that "typical Edge" style collar on any of the Adidas jerseys... that being said, it would be ironic if Reebok/CCM finally offered a "typical" hockey cut shirt the year after they lose the NHL contract.

I technically bought one, only as a mate asked for me to bring one back. Why they went with that design when there was a perfectly good Toronto Arenas design knocking about I don't know.

I'm convinced the Leafs wanted to use the arenas jersey and the league axed it at the last minute.  With no time left to design something else they had to go with a already in use template a la the panthers jersey.

I'll be getting 3 TI jerseys from the Monsters when they get their supply for the season, so I'll see if they still have the Edge-style collar, or if they are the Adizero style. I would guess they will be the same as before.

Originally the collar bugged me and the lack of numbers made them look a bit bare. Now that I have one, I actually like the old ribbed collar. Spot on about the whiteness of the jersey mate, it definitely stands out. I'd buy another given half a chance.

Interesting.  It mentions not once but twice and I quote;

"This is the exact jersey Canadiens players will wear on the ice beginning next season."

It's tough to see from the collar picture if it says made in Canada or Indonesia.
