Roadrunners Announce Black Kachina Sweater as Team's Official Third Jersey
TUCSON, AZ - The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, and CCM announced today that team's black Kachina CCM sweater will be the Roadrunners' new official third jersey, effective for the 2019-20 season.
Fans of the Roadrunners that purchase or renew their Season Ticket Membership by the club's final regular season game on Saturday, April 13 will receive one (1) replica Roadrunners Kachina sweater per account.
The Roadrunners expand their brand to now include a twist on the Arizona Coyotes reintroduced throwback, 90s-inspired, fan favorite third jersey that the parent club wears each Saturday at Gila River Arena. The Roadrunners will wear the black Kachina jerseys for the club's home opener in October.
"We're very excited to be extending our brand here in Tucson with our very first official third jersey," said Roadrunners President Bob Hoffman. "The Kachina style has become synonymous with the Arizona Coyotes in the sport of hockey and we are confident that our fans and players both enjoy our version here in the Old Pueblo."
The Coyotes wore the original black Kachina jerseys for all road games from 1996-2003. During that time, the team reached the playoffs in five of their first six seasons in the Valley. The Coyotes reintroduced the popular black Kachina jerseys for the first time in 12 years on March 5, 2015 for Throwback Night when Arizona hosted the Vancouver Canucks.
