We wrap up AHL Week on this Freak Out Friday with Brett Ireland's unique take on the Lake Erie Monsters. Here's how he describes it:
This jersey is a mashup of sorts, incorporating two of Cleveland's professional hockey teams. The yoke's a mix of the Crusader's black stripe down the center, and the dashes are lifted from the AHL Baron's old style. The football jersey style crest is also an element lifted from the AHL Barons, a design choice that's truly something from hockey past. The striping pattern is a mimic of the Ohio flag, and lastly I decided that a "faux olde time" choice would be the white nameplate much like the Sabres have.
