Rangers Launch New Third Jersey

Sep 02, 2010 - 20:00 EDT

The Kitchener Rangers new third jersey will make its first public appearance on Sunday, September 5th at The Annual Fan Appreciation Barbecue.

This exciting new jersey was influenced by the Rangers 2008 Commemorative MasterCard Memorial Cup Jersey, and will feature the same highly popular soldier crest.

The crest on the front of the jersey was designed by the Kitchener Rangers Hockey Club in honour of the Canadian Forces. The design was derived from a recruiting poster that was used in England during WWI. This popular recruiting poster was inspired by "Lord Kitchener", the same individual that the City of Kitchener was subsequently named after. The poster's popularity led the United States to use this poster as the basis for the creation of their "I Want You - US Army" poster in their recruiting efforts on this side of the Atlantic.

Select players will wear the jersey as they meet and greet fans for autographs at 11:30am.

The third jersey will be worn for every Sunday home game for the 2010-2011 season, along with other specified dates throughout the year.

A limited supply of replica jerseys will be available at The Outpost beginning Sunday.
