To heck with Adidas ... the ECHL will have a new team next year. They're the same franchise (somehow) that was the Alaska Aces. Nice looking jerseys, though the mascot I could do without.

Ah yes, I am awesome. I had the very first post on top of a new page in this thread. I'll enjoy looking at this image for a while.

I think the Railers are a separate team from the new Aces.  The Alaska Aces club is moving to Portland, Maine and will be run by Danny Briere and Paul Holmgren.  The Worcester Railers are a different team.  So, I think there are actually two new ECHL teams coming next season?

Good catch, Josh. I think the E had to expand since they also lost Elmira. I am liking those Railers jerseys though.

I like them, too. 

The ECHL is a cool league.  The Reading Royals' arena is relatively close.  I try to catch a game or two each season.

Worcester is an expansion franchise starting in 2017, Alaska went dormant and was sold to Comcast and will play in Portland, ME in 2018, and Elmira folded up shop completely because of the massive debt they were under. That franchise doesn't exist anymore.

Oh yeah, I forgot. the Evansville IceMen will become the Jacksonville IceMen, after sitting out a season and trying and failing to set up shop in Owensboro, KY. And that's just the ECHL. The AHL has it's own story of musical chairs going on, including a phantom "31st" franchise to, supposedly, start in 2018.

From the comments:

"not a fan of these collars. i feel a lot of jerseys are going to end up looking the same with this template."

Uhh, that's what a "template" is. Happened a lot with the Edge, will happen again here. Then teams will correct it.

Lol @ Crazylight. That's sounds like the name of an 80s hair band. 

"Now opening for Def Leppard, Crazylight!"

Dumb-sounding though 'Crazylight' is, it's been used for a few years on CCM equipment product lines, so sort of has some precedence in the hockey world.

Still, sounds stupid, though...

Interesting in the link above that both the info video and, more importantly, it would appear, the overall marketing for the jerseys, have been outsourced to UK-based firms.

Still chain-stitched. Thank you, God. 

I see Rocky told Adidas to go pound sand.

Well... that is chain stitched... by a 12 year old girl in Indonesia. Its clearly not a Canadian on ice spec. Its pretty easy to see the quality difference in the two. I hope real ones look better.

Noticed that myself... the shoulder patch looked particularly bad.

I'm very sorry if this question has been answered already but does anyone know where and when we can catch the unveiling of the new jerseys?

I haven't seen anything concrete. I was assuming each team would have its own reveal. But if there's a formal unveiling, I haven't found it.

Theres a formal unveiling tomorrow at 5PM at the Wynn and then a public event in front of the Vegas sign at 6PM 

 

I saw something posted from the team store at the new Vegas arena called The Armory. They are charging $200 for "authentic" and $265 for authentic customized.
