23 AHL Theme Jerseys for 2012-13

The lack of any NHL action so far this season has a lot of us turning to the American Hockey League for our hockey fix. And the variety of specialty sweaters that pop up in the minors is fascinating. I've been covering them a lot lately here on the blog.

Today I decided to check up on all 30 AHL clubs and compile a list of theme jerseys in the pipeline. Turns out, there are quite a few. But be aware that this list is not comprehensive as I'm relying on promotional calendars posted to the individual team websites. They may or may not be complete.




  • 2/1: Oklahoma City Barons, Special Olympics Night
    Theme night includes post-game jersey auction.
  • 2/2: Worcester Sharks, Pink in the Rink
    Sharks will wear a special pink jersey. Post-game auction proceeds to benefit Cup Crusaders.
  • Monarchs' pink jersey2/9: Charlotte Checkers, Pink in the Rink
    Checkers join the pink jersey party on the same night they welcome the Girl Scouts. Coincidence? 
  • 2/9: Manchester Monarchs, Pink in the Rink Night
    Monarchs will wear pink and purple on this night. 
  • 2/23: Lake Erie Monsters, Cleveland Browns Night
    Could this concept actually become a reality?!
  • 2/23: Worcester Sharks, Specialty Jersey Night
    No word on the jersey design but post-game auction proceeds will benefit Autism Resource Center of Central Massachuetts.


  • Wolves' St. Patrick's Day jersey3/9, 10, 17: Chicago Wolves, St. Patrick's Day Jersey Auction
    Wolves will wear commemorative green jerseys for three home games in March.
    Auction proceeds to benefit Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities.
  • 3/16: Binghamton Senators, St. Patrick's Day Celebration
    Senators will wear special St. Patrick's Day jersey. Post-game auction to follow.
  • 3/17: Hershey Bears, St. Patrick's Day Jersey Auction
    Bears will presumably be wearing green prior to the auction.
  • 3/17: Lake Erie Monsters, Monsters Celebrate St. Patrick's Day (special jersey)
    Probably safe to assume the Monsters will be sporting green.
  • 3/17: Peoria Rivermen,  St. Patrick's Day with the Rivermen
    Rivermen will wear special [green] jerseys to be auctioned off after the game. 
  • 3/30: Norfolk Admirals, MDA Jersey Auction Night
    No word on jersey design, but if there's an auction it's probably something special.
    Auction proceeds to benefit Muscular Dystrophy Association. 


If there are any other jersey nights I missed, drop me a line and I'll be sure to add them.
