These Uniforms Are Absolutely Horrible

Don Cherry Military Appreciation Night SweatersI had thought these uniforms worn by the Montreal Canadiens last season were the worst that hockey had ever seen, they’ve been topped. The Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL wore special Don Cherry (the Craig Sager of hockey) inspired sweaters as part of their Don Cherry Military Appreciation Night to benefit Soldier On, a group that aids injured soldiers.

Frontenacs spokesman Jeff Stilwell and trainer Craig Belfer came up with the idea when “Last summer, we were looking at some really ugly sweaters worn in the AHL and ECHL,” Stilwell said. “We thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool (to do something like that)? Then it snowballed in our weekly marketing meetings. … Don Cherry’s name got thrown in when we started talking about our annual military night and, boom, the concept went into reality mode.”

I wish they hadn’t for my eyes. However, Cherry was on hand for the event and autographed each uniform which will be auctioned off for the charity, so at least this ugliness was for a good cause.

The uniforms didn’t appear to be good luck, as the Frontenacs lost 4-3.
