The WSHL Oklahoma City Blazers have exceeded my expectations in their attempt to be a legitimate hockey team in the central Oklahoma market. From day one the goal has been to develop young players, and embrace the historical roots of hockey that so many have grown to love in this state. Despite the league being vastly different from the CHL (and the cross-town AHL neighbors), they have managed to envelop the things that many found great about the Blazers.
Only days ago the Oklahoma City Blazers unveiled their inaugural jerseys, and boy do they take me back.
Tyler Fleck, head coach and GM of the team, says that embracing the Blazers has been a no-brainer for them. “We wanted to bring it all back. There were several great uniforms from the old pro team that we considered and at the end of the day these were the ones that we chose. I know our old Blazer fans can’t wait to dig out their jersey’s from the past and support this team.”
Described as throwbacks, but with slight modifications, the sweaters can be seen below. Take notice that each jersey represents a different time in CHL Blazers history.
