Colorado College bucked tradition on Monday morning when they introduced their new road onesies. Called ‘The Prowler’ by the manufacturer, the new design is certain to draw attention to the visiting Tigers when they’re on the road.
“Classy,” said sophomore defenseman Alex Pernitsky. “Cool” said forward, Trey Bradley. And “Unencumbered,” said goalie Alex LeClerc at the uniform launch event.
According to head coach Mike Haviland, the team will travel with two sets of uniforms on the road. One for games and one for bedtime. “The manufacturer added zippers to the cuffs so the boys can add feet for bedtime.”
The CC equipment manager praised the new design. “Our one-size-fits-all design provides plenty of room for hip pads and the one-piece construction makes laundry easy,” said a gleaming Gord “Spud” Hamilton.
“This definitely makes up for losing our top defenseman [Teemu Kivikalme] last month,” said Coach Haviland.
