The Western Hockey League’s Tri-City Americans have unveiled an updated uniform via a post on their official website yesterday evening.
Call it a victory for fans of great uniform design, the terrible thick stripes which once ran up either side of the front of the uniform are thankfully gone and have been replaced by thin lines which go down the sleeves. A star is on each sleeve which is a throwback to previous team uniforms.
“We are thrilled with how our new jerseys turned out. It’s an exciting time to start a new season with a sleek new look, while also paying homage to the great history of our team.” – Tri-City Americans Governor/GM Bob Tory
The new look is very reminiscent of the Columbus Blue Jackets design, the team even named the Blue Jackets uniform as the inspiration behind the new look.
In a Tweet following the unveiling the team announced that their red retro-style alternate uniforms from last season will be carried over with this new design.
