Today the AHL's Utica Comets unveiled their gorgeous new third jersey. It's the team's first alternate uniform since moving to upstate New York in 2013.
The green sweater features a new crest, a U shape inspired by the Comets' primary logo. Actually I hope to see it become the primary in years to come — when they're more established and no longer need a logo with their name in it.
To be honest, this is the alternate uniform I've wanted for a long time to see the Vancouver Canucks do. It's too bad their minor league affiliate beat them to the punch. But at least someone did.
From the press release:
“Our third jersey design is something very special to both myself and this community,” said Comets President Robert Esche. “Our fans continually embodied civic pride throughout our last two seasons — especially during last year’s playoff run — which exemplifies the bright future ahead for not only the Comets but for the City as a whole.”
