After an incredibly successful 2014-15 campaign, the Utica Comets aren’t afraid to hit the ice with a bold, new look.
In time for the 2015-16 season, the Utica Comets have unveiled a brand new third jersey, one which is a departure from the club’s Vancouver Canucks-style look. In a YouTube video posted to the team’s website Wednesday, the club unveiled their new third jersey for the upcoming campaign — a green, blue and white beauty that looks more like Hartford Whalers colors than it does Canucks.

You have to hand it to ECHL Greenville: they know how to get your attention. The city that was once home to the Grrrowl (official spelling) has now rebranded the New York Rangers-affiliated Road Warriors franchise as the Swamp Rabbits. How do we feel about this?
Fans itching to get a look at what the Stadium Series jerseys might be when the Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Red Wings face off in Denver this season got a preview from an unlikely source.
In a Reebok catalog promoting new merchandise for the upcoming season, the logos for both the Avalanche and Red Wings for the Stadium Series contest adorned two sweaters.

The WHL’s Kelowna Rockets are coming off a championship season that saw the powerhouse go all the way to the Memorial Cup final, losing to Oshawa in heartbreaking overtime. But 2015-16 offers a clean sheet of ice for the Rockets and they’re kicking things off with a bang, celebrating the franchise’s 25th anniversary with special jerseys.
TSN reporter Rick Westhead had hockey Twitter all a-flutter yesterday, putting out a nugget that the 2016 World Cup of Hockey could include advertisements on the national team sweaters, paving the way for the NHL to follow suit.
Needless to say, the masses were not happy.
Sometimes you just have to give the people what they want. And it’s hard to deny fans league-wide want to see the return of the classic Anaheim Mighty Ducks logo, so that’s exactly what fans are going to get.
The Ducks announced Monday that they would be unveiling a new third jersey this coming season and that it would be worn for the first time on Oct. 16 when Anaheim faces off against the Colorado Avalanche. With the announcement made, it didn’t take long before Icethetics’ Chris Smith had the dirt on the new threads.
According to Icethetics, the Ducks new jersey will bring back the old fan-favorite logo, with the crest popping off the front of a bright orange sweater. Take a look: Read more
Avert your eyes, Toronto Maple Leafs fans. The sight of Phil Kessel in a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey may be too much to bear.
Pittsburgh’s newest sniper was taking his photo in his new duds for the club this afternoon, and the Penguins social media team sent out a photo of Kessel in his brand new No. 81 jersey.
Acquired by the Penguins on the opening day of free agency, Kessel has yet to be spotted in Pittsburgh’s jersey. While some fancy photoshop work has been spread around, this is the first time the real thing is out there, and, after six seasons as a Maple Leaf, Kessel as a Penguin looks so very strange.

The NWHL’s free agency period closes in less than two weeks, but the biggest changes that happened Wednesday for the Buffalo Beauts and Connecticut Whale were purely aesthetic.
Though the two teams have yet to hit the ice, it was announced by the NWHL that the Beauts and Whale were making modifications to their logos. While the modifications — the addition of a Buffalo to the Beauts logo and locating an updated whale inside a large ‘C’ for the Whale’s new look — may not have seemed like a necessity for the clubs, the new logos are fantastic upgrades over the former look.
