Top 5 ECHL Alternate Jersey’s

There have been some interesting alternate jersey selections this year. Some have been a big hit, others not so much. Let’s take a look at the most interesting ones so far this season.

5. Florida Everblades- Teddy Bear

The Everblades wore these sight for sore eyes jerseys back in December. Florida won 5-4 in OT over Indy and the jerseys were auctioned off after the game to benefit a local children’s hospital.

4. Cincinnati Cyclones- R2-D2

The Cyclones wore these beauties back in November and the force was strong enough to take the team to a shootout where they lost to Fort Wayne 5-4. These jerseys were the beginning of five themed jersey nights for the Cyclones.

3. Reading Royals- Ugly Sweaters

These holiday themed jerseys were worn by the Royals on December 13 to show off their Christmas spirit. Reading won the game 2-1 but the real winners were the fans who received replicas following the game.

2. Bakersfield Condors- Seinfeld

The Condors wore these jerseys for a November 16 game then 12 of them were auctioned off and the proceeds went to charity. The highest bought jersey was the #77 Assman jersey which was worn by Chase Schaber and auctioned off for $1,800.

1. Toledo Walleye (Batman) & Evansville IceMen (The Riddler)

Both teams decided to wear these two back in November for “Hero’s Night” to commemorate the Batman’s 75th anniversary. Good prevailed over evil in this match up once again as Toledo beat Evansville 6-2.
