The Bakersfield Condors, ECHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers announced specially themed sweaters to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. The Jerseys will be worn for the game against the Stockton Thunder on Sunday November 10th. Following the game, the jerseys will be auctioned off right off the player’s back. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Bakersfield ARC, an organization that helps people with developmental disabilities in the areas of job training, employment and support services.

This is certainly an interesting topic to place on a hockey sweater and we look forward to seeing them in action on ice. What specialty jerseys are your favourites? Any ones that are flops?

For more information of the upcoming Specialty Jersey night in Bakersfield head on over to the Condors website.

A West Coast girl, born and raised in the Bay Area in the most non-traditional Hockey Market you could imagine for a long time... When the Sharks came to town it changed the Bay Area hockey landscape forever. Her first love will always be the Red Wings but she has embraced the Sharks since their debut in 1991. She has a passion for minor league grind-it-out-in the-corners hockey. Her heart broke when the ECHL Bulls folded , but luckily the Stockton Thunder are still close enough for her to get her gritty-hockey fix. Besides watching hockey, she is an American Tribal Style belly-dancer and trolls the blue-line, playing defence in a local rec hockey league... A somehow strange but balanced juxtaposition.
