Get ready for the return of eggplant and jade! The Orange County Register reported on Tuesday that the Anaheim Ducks will break out their classic Mighty Ducks jerseys for Throwback Night on Oct. 13.
Icethetics reader Kevin was kind enough to give us a look behind the paper's paywall at what the Ducks are planning. Here's an excerpt:
One major highlight of the night is that the Ducks will wear their original eggplant, jade and grey jerseys that were used from 1993-2006 when they were the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.
The club is already wearing a 20th anniversary commemorative patch on their current sweaters and has the logo on their Honda Center ice surface.
That logo and news of the Throwback Night were announced back in July. But this is the first confirmation of a throwback jersey. Eager now to see what the Ducks themselves have to say about it.
In the meantime, Kevin also pointed out a new bobblehead being sold through the team's official booster club, Anaheim Ducks Die Hards. It's Paul Kariya wearing that jersey he'll forever be associated with. But noteworthy here is the new 20th anniversary patch.
Is this the throwback jersey the Ducks will be wearing next month? If so, will they also use it again later in the season for their Stadium Series game in January against the Los Angeles Kings?
Stay tuned for details.
