The American Hockey League’s San Antonio Rampage are celebrating 25 years of hockey in the city with multiple throwback jerseys.

Since 2002, the Rampage have played in the AHL. They are currently the top team in the St. Louis Blues’ farm system. Prior to the Rampage, San Antonio played host to the CHL’s Iguanas (1994-2002) and the IHL’s Dragons (1996-1998).

As a but of a twist, the team will not be wearing each one on special nights to honour the teams of the past. Instead, they will be donning all three of them on Friday night with a new jersey being thrown on for each period of play.

The team will wear the Iguanas jersey in the first period then put on the Dragons jersey for the second period and then their own for the third.

There isn’t anything really new about doing throwback jerseys for games, but when you do them all in one night in a single game you are going to get some attention.

Hopefully the Milwaukee Admirals, the Rampages’ opponents that night, won’t get too confused to whom they are playing, but it will likely be a historic moment as it could tie a record.

Yes, I said tie a record. To my knowledge, there has only been two other times that a team has worn three different jerseys in a game.

The first came on March 12, 2016 when the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye sported zombie jerseys against the Norfolk Admirals. The jerseys were part of a Zombie Night promotion that included actors from “The Walking Dead” appearing at the game.

The different jerseys from the game showed a progression of a zombie infection spreading over them each period.

The only other known time that a team has worn three different jerseys in a single game was when the Cincinnati Cyclones did so on January 27, 2017. During that game they put on three different jerseys to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of Disney’s “The Mighty Ducks” movie.

On that night the team donned the green “District 5” jersey with the old Cyclones logo on it during the first period, a Team USA jersey in the second and a Puckchop inspired jersey for the third, one that resembled the Mighty Ducks jerseys.

Another team will be joining the record in February 2020 when the SPHL’s Huntsville Havoc will reportedly play in jerseys inspired by the “Black Panther”, “Iron Man” and “Captain America” on Marvel Superhero Night.

While the throwback jersey fad can be a little overdone, this is a great and innovated way to doing it.
