The ECHL’s Reading Royals are one of our favorite minor league hockey organizations because they have a great eye for unique jersey designs. We’ve featured them in the past, from ugly Christmas sweater looks to ones honoring the Olympics.
Their latest designs get us in the mood for Halloween, which is only two weeks away. The game-used versions will be sold on the team's online store as soon as their game against the Wheeling Nailers on Oct. 30 is over.
Let’s let our old friend the Crypt Keeper from “Tales from the Crypt” tell you about their latest jersey promotion:
On SHOCKTOBER 30th, the EEK-CHL’s Philadelphia Flyers affiliate, the DEADing Royals, are hosting the SQUEAL-ING NAILERS for a Halloween eve hockey contest.
To celebrate, the Royals have a little surprise for the OGRES in the ARENA: They’re going to wear this FANG-TASTIC jersey filled with BATS, COBWEBS, PUMPKINS, a VAMPIRE LION who wants to MANE-GLE you, and the Pagoda and Stokesay Castles of DOOM!
It’s the kind of jarring jersey you’d expect to see on a RICK GNASH or a BRENT BURNS or ALEX GHOUL-IGOSKI or JACK S-KILL-E or a JOSH GORE-GES!
I say these jerseys are … TERRIFYINGLY terrific. I’m sure it will inspire the Royals to score many more … GHOULS than the boys from SQUEAL-ING.
You know what they say about hockey: Skeletons don’t play it because they don’t HAVE THE GUTS. HEEEEEEHEE HEE HEE HEE!
Until next time, my creepy, cackling cadavers. But I want to leave you with one more Halloween fright:
BEN SCRIVENS’ SAVE PERCENTAGE! HEEE HEE HEE HEEEEEE!
Pretty devilish description by the Crypt keeper. What do you think?
