With opening day for the Lake Erie Monsters set for Friday, Oct. 12, the American Hockey League team unveiled its new jerseys for the 2012-2013 season yesterday at City of Cleveland's Halloran Park.
While some fans may wonder what is so new about the jersey, take a closer look underneath the Monsters logo, which has remained unchanged since the launch of the team in 2007: "Cleveland" now sits under the logo as a way to show support for the city.
"Our mission is about commitment and its about Cleveland," says Mike Ostrowski, the senior vice president and COO of the Monsters. "We wanted to be all-inclusive of the region."
The white home jersey (right) will also feature white shoulders and sleeves, instead of red, for a more traditional home uniform look.
Single game tickets for the 2012-2013 season are on sale now. All tickets can be purchased by visiting lakeeriemonsters.com, calling 216-420-000 or by visiting the Quicken Loans Arena box office or any Northeast Ohio Discount Drug Mart.
