New season, new jerseys for the Boston Bruins‘ AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins.
The team tweeted out on Tuesday the new home jerseys that will be worn for the upcoming 2021-22 AHL season.
The new threads will be similar to the current away jerseys, showcasing the spoked P on the front of the chest. There will now be the Boston logo on the shoulders.
It differentiates from last year’s uniform, where for home jerseys, Providence went with the alternative Boston logo with the bear on the front, replacing “Boston” with “Providence”, of course.
There is also now a white line in between the yellow lines on the arms, instead of the jerseys staying black in between. The new jerseys also have three lines along the bottom of the jersey, which the old ones did not have. Similar to the arms, it’s two yellow lines with a white line running in between. I think it compliments the arms quite well, and it’s more common to have those designs at the bottom of the jersey than to have just the continuation of the solid color.
The jerseys are clean and I’m always a fan when both home and away jerseys are basically the same with a color change. Alternative logos should appear on alternative jerseys, not on the main set.
However, for as much as I like the black jerseys, you can’t go wrong with the yellow ones that Providence used to sport, when current Bruins like Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak were down playing in the AHL. They’re almost the same as the ones the Bruins sported in Lake Tahoe last season, which, in my opinion, need to be worn more often for Boston.
Providence’s first day of training camp was today, as new head coach Ryan Mougenel begins to take a look at the players he has. He’ll get three more players, as Tyler Lewington, Cameron Hughes and Joona Koppanen were placed on waivers for the purpose of reporting to Providence.
There will be a few more players reporting to Providence in the coming days as the final preseason games wrap up. Providence will get to wear the newly-designed black jerseys in its first home game on Friday, Oct. 16 against the Bridgeport Islanders.
