The Halifax Mooseheads, who were about to celebrate their 30th anniversary, couldn’t wait to begin the festivities. The Mooseheads joined the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 1994. With 2024 less than a month away, the team has unveiled new alternate jerseys that „pay homage to what they wore when they first joined the league.“
The jersey is mainly red, with a solid green collar and diagonal green, red, and white stripes on the waist and sleeves. The shoulder patch features the Halifax Clock Tower, which protrudes from the shape of the Citadel of Halifax.
The numbers on the back and sleeves are white with green outlines, while the names on the back are solid white. The jersey is paired with green helmets, gloves, and pants. The red socks have the same stripe pattern as the jerseys.
The Mooseheads logo on the front of the new alternate jersey and the shoulder patches are the same as on the regular home and away jerseys. Their current jerseys have rounded shoulder yokes and three stripes around the waist and each arm.
„We’re really excited about … launching our ’94 jersey,“ said Sam Simon, Chairman and Owner of the Mooseheads, in a press release. „In discussions with both companies [and] once the hockey team and fan feedback had been gathered, it was agreed that it was necessary to bring back a red jersey that pays homage to the club’s history. Every detail has been carefully considered to ensure a true retro look, and we hope everyone is as pleased with the result as we are.“
The Mooseheads wore the new jerseys in both games over the weekend, including a 4-3 win over the Drummondville Voltigeurs on Thursday and a 5-4 win over the Gatineau Olympiques on Friday.
They will wear the jerseys „at selected games during the remainder of the season for the 30th anniversary celebration.“
