67's Owner Wants Barber Pole Jerseys Back

September 14, 2009 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Ottawa 67's News Release

When the 67's Reebok Edge Jersey was launched this week, longtime fans who had grown to love the traditional barber pole jerseys were upset. Rightly so. As an organization, we should have warned you in advance that in this first edition of the Edge Jersey our traditional look wasn't possible. At least, that way, it wouldn't have been a shock when the jersey was unveiled.

The problem is that the engineering of the new, lighter, cooler jerseys is such that only a solid colour is possible on the main front panel. We have maintained as much of the barber pole look as we could (sleeves) and we are working with the manufacturer to overcome the technical problems so that, at some point in the future, we can return to our full barber pole look.

I hope you enjoy the new season.

Jeff Hunt

Owner and Governor

Ottawa 67's Hockey Club
