There are so many things to love about the ECHL.
Not only do they provide NHL teams an extra avenue with which to work with their prospects - goalies especially, considering the very limited roster spots for them - but they bring all the minor league joy one can experience to hockey, too.
For example: incredible team names, and incredible jerseys.
The New York Rangers’ ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, have the name part covered. And with their new jersey for video game night, well...
Okay those are incredible. That’s exactly what you would expect a video game about swamp rabbits to look like, isn’t it? They even have the pixelated numbers and the socks themselves are amazing, too. I kind of want them.
Seriously - well done, Swamp Rabbits, for continuing to provide the best of the best in AA.
