Hugh: Newfoundland Growlers Unveil Alternate Jersey With Tribute Logo
Written by Hugh Campbell on January 27, 2023
If you ask me, the Newfoundland Growlers have always had excellent jerseys. Today, the team unveiled a new alternate jersey they will wear for select games and it’s a fantastic addition to an already great on-ice look. The St. John’s-based ECHL team had been teasing the reveal this week on social media before posting a full look at the new alternates on Friday. The design is a tribute to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and its mascot Sable Chief. The all-black and gold jerseys feature a new logo of a full-body side tracing of a Newfoundland dog in front of a circular band with the team name inside. The details on the jersey make it even better, with military-style chevrons on the sides, a “Stand on Guard” military stripe shoulder patch, and “Better Than The Best” written on the inside of the neck – a nod to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment’s unofficial motto. The team will wear the new alternate jerseys for the first time on home ice Saturday, February 4th.
