Saskatoon Blades Unveil Star Wars Uniform

Blades Star Wars Jersey

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… teams didn’t do Star Wars jerseys every couple of weeks. Hard to remember those days but there was once a time.

The Saskatoon Blades of the junior Western Hockey League are the latest to join this club with the unveiling of their (pretty awesome as far as theme jerseys go) special Star Wars uniforms. They will be worn during their game on November 28th.

Now bear with me, I’m not at all well-versed in Star Wars knowledge, this is pure Google research… the jersey design depicts a battle involving several AT-ATs on the ice-planet Hoth? Close?

Jerseys were created with the full blessing of Lucasfilm who, according to the Blades, had final approval on the design you see here. The jerseys will be auctioned off via silent auction in arena during the game in which they are worn.
