Manchester Monarchs wore Purple LA Kings throwbacks


Recommended Posts

Manchester is definitely one of the cooler AHL teams. They offer authentic versions of both their white and black jerseys in their online store and a team rep told me that for something like $75 they will customize it and add the sponsor patch if you request it. Unfortunately, they did not have the purple jersey listed there, I am hoping there could be another way.

It looks like they're using the old Vintage 6100's from 2003-04.

That was a good catch that they were 6100 cut, I didn't notice that. It is hard to tell from the picture if they are ultrafil or airknit. Also, I would love to see the back to see if they used the new CCM logo branding and the location, and where they put any AHL logos on the back. Also, there are Manchester Monarchs crests on both shoulders in purple and gold.

Based on the neck tag, I'd say they'll have the new CCM logo.

It looks like they wore these jerseys on January 17, 2015 against the P-Bruins. Not sure if they wore them another night.

Here is the score sheet for that game:

From the looks of the video, the AHL logo and the new CCM logo were on the right hem of the jersey on the back. The new CCM logo was also on the back of the neck. Also my pal Biznasty got an assist on a nice give and go.

Also, the yellow namebars on the P-Bruins jerseys look ridiculous.

And, it looks like they only wore the Purple Kings jerseys in the first period, then switched to their normal white jerseys for the rest of the game?

They auctioned off the jerseys after the game, according to this:

http://manchestermonarchs.com/news/monarchsnews/?article_id=413

"Manchester will celebrate the Kings second Stanley Cup Championship in three seasons with their third annual Los Angeles Kings Night on Saturday, January 17. The Kings skated to their second championship in franchise history with 13 former Monarchs players, including game-winning goal scorer Alec Martinez. Los Angeles Kings Night will feature all things Kings with an opening video from the Monarchs parent club, the goal horn that echoes throughout STAPLES Center, and specialty Kings-inspired jerseys that will be auctioned off at the game with proceeds benefiting the Monarchs Care Foundation."

Isn't that the new style CCM logo on the neck tag?

The Monarchs played the Providence Bruins that night and the Bruins showed up with only their black road jerseys. This left the Monarchs wearing dark purple with yellow highlights and the P-Bruins wearing black with yellow highlights.

The players and officials were all having issues telling each other apart so the Monarchs switched to their normal home whites after the first period.

I had a picture but it was on my old phone. It was indeed a very confusing situation.

Sorry I forgot the link; Ted pointed you in the right direction. They tend to take their time listing items. I'll get an email like that and see jerseys I'm interested in a month later.
