From the Hitmen Office:
The Calgary Hitmen Hockey Club will proudly enter its 20th Western Hockey League season in 2014-15. In celebration of this milestone, the franchise is excited to introduce a 20th anniversary jersey that honours the team’s inaugural season and pays tribute to the club’s namesake and one of the original owners, Bret “Hitman” Hart. The limited edition throwback jersey, black with grey and pink, includes two shoulder patches; one that features Hart’s famous words, ‘The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be’, while the opposite shoulder is dressed with the historic Hitmen starburst logo.
In appreciation for the continued support the Calgary Hitmen receive from the community, the purchase or renewal of select 2014-15 season ticket packages will include a complimentary premium 20th anniversary jersey. Starting today, fans can also pre-order the commemorative jersey at 10 per cent off the retail price. The special pre-order offer ends August 31, 2014. The jersey is expected to arrive in all FanAttic locations in September.
The 20th anniversary jersey will make its on-ice debut during the 2014-15 Calgary Hitmen Home Opener at the Scotiabank Saddledome and will be worn on many occasions throughout the season.
