Arizona State Establishing New On-Ice Identity

Arizona State men’s hockey travels to Denver to face the Pioneers in a two-game set this Friday and Saturday. The Sun Devils are once again debuting new sweaters at Magness Arena. In their seven years of DI play, ASU has sported 33 different uniform combinations.

The Sun Devils are sporting a cutoff tank top with simulated food and drink stains for their home games to project a feeling of comfort. Head coach Greg Powers call this the ‘spaghetti dinner at grandma’s’ kit. “We thought our new home arena (Mullett Arena) in Tempe was a bit sterile. Sure, we understand our home uniforms lack shoulder pads and player protection but the ultimate payoff is relatability.”

The Sun Devils will take to the Magness Arena ice in their Hawaiian-themed jersey featuring a bright floral print. “Players and staff thought the ensemble projected a sense of ‘warm desert cool’ – Plus, TJ Maxx had a 3-for-1 sale on their Hawaii 5-0 line,” Powers added.

As for the neutral site puffy sleeve kit, Powers responded, “everybody wants to be a pirate!”

  1. Thier many uniform combos notwithstanding, this ASU team has beaten North Dakota and Minnesota in recent weeks.

    Pios better bring it this weekend!

  2. This ASU team is no joke! They would love nothing more than to knock of the Pioneers. DC better have the team prepared!

  3. I recall a few years back DU made fun of ASU sweaters while DU wore their Soviet era costume. The Soviets lost the first game & tied in the second on home ice…..

    1. We’ve been doing satire for many years at LetsGoDU…this is not a new ‘thing’ that started after recent championships. So we are ‘starting to act’ like we have always acted.
