WELCOME TO THE NHL'S NIGHTMARE? COYOTES UNVEIL NEW LOOK
Published August 27, 1996
The Coyotes unveiled their uniforms at the Hard Rock Cafe in Phoenix, modeled by Mike Gartner, Kris King, Dallas Drake and Dave Manson and rock star Alice Cooper. The road uniforms for the former Winnipeg Jets will be black jerseys with the "abstract" Coyote logo in a trim of maroon, green, and off-white with black pants which will be worn at all times. The home jerseys are white trimmed in black, maroon and green and will carry the aforementioned logo. Richard Burke, part-Owner of the Coyotes, said "the conservative NHL wasn't quite as enthusiastic as was management about the design." He added, "It was a stretch, but they like it now." Coyotes COO Shawn Hunter said the club has "two of the sharpest-looking uniforms in all of sports." The jerseys will feature a "Goal for Kids" patch on one shoulder, which marks a continued effort to help needy children, which began in Winnipeg. Corporations are asked to make contributions for each goal by a player that corporation sponsors (Steve Weston, ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 8/27).
