Clothing Of The High Seas

The Mariners of Maine, one of the new expansion teams in the ECHL, were introduced with the logo to the left a few weeks ago. As time rolls by, more and more information is being shared regarding their inaugural season, but we had yet to see one shred of fabric that suggested what they would be wearing. One could probably predict the team's colour scheme based on the logo, but the uniforms had yet to be revealed. Being affiliated with the NHL's New York Rangers and AHL's Hartford Wolfpack, would we see the Mariners resemble either team or would they branch out on their own with a unique design?

No sense in delaying the reveal, so here are their inaugural uniforms for the 2018-19 season!
There's nothing particularly earth-shattering here. The Mariners will wear a couple of decent uniforms that have the secondary logo and the state of Maine logo on the shoulders. They didn't try to emulate either of their affiliated teams, and that's good. The white jersey is a little Dallas Stars-ish/Markham Thunder-ish for me, but it's clean and simple that allows the logo to pop off the chest.

Jersey orders placed on July 1 will be ready for December 2018, so make sure you put your money down early if you want to support the Mariners of Maine.

There was a rather strange reveal done by NewsCenter Maine, and I'll post that here simply because there are good notes revealed about the uniform in the video.

What do you think of the Mariners of Maine uniforms? Comment below!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
