They won’t be unveiled until this Wednesday but we’ve got all sorts of information on the new Hershey Bears logo and uniforms thanks to a very reliable source.
As expected, the graphic shown in NHL13 was indeed the new primary logo, described to me as a bear standing above a hockey stick pointing right with Hershey Bears written below. Sure sounds like the NHL13 leak!
What we hadn’t heard about before was the new uniforms…
- Bear paw prints as shoulder logos
- Jersey piping around the top shoulders (like the Carolina Hurricanes?)
- Additional jersey piping from the armpits to the waist
- Sleeve/Bottom jersey stripes in cream and brown
- Lace-up collar
I’m not sure how I feel about that shoulder piping, I’m really not a fan of how Carolina does it, but I’ll await full judgement until I actually see it.
The big day is Wednesday evening, naturally we’ll have the official graphics and photos once they’ve been unveiled so stay tuned for that!
