Ducks Potential Retro Jersey?
By Michael Walters
Back in May of 2020, we wrote a few articles with various retro Mighty Ducks themed jerseys. We had a couple of variations of the Wild Wing jersey posted in this article: Jersey Madness Monday Part 2.
Recently on Reddit, a user benhsports, who sells NHL jerseys on eBay, was asked about a possible orange Wild Wing jersey coming in the future and he had this to say:
“The orange part I don’t know anything about. The Wild Wing part however, my Adidas distributor said, “duck breaking through ice,” so I take that to be a variation on the Wild Wing. Again, what color the jersey will be, I don’t know. I’ve not heard orange or not orange. No idea. And by the way, I have a ton of Ducks secured and allocated to me so it had better be Wild Wing.”
User benhsports also stated that it was not official, but it appears to be the general jersey design given the description above. Icethetics, which is a very reliable source for hockey jersey information, believes the Wild Wing jersey will return, but it’s unclear what the color scheme will be.
The Samuelis have previously mentioned how they like to incorporate orange in the jerseys, so it could be a color in the jersey. The Ducks 25th-Anniversary jersey was a black throwback using the original Mighty Duck logo. The hockey sticks were orange in the jersey and the webbed Duck logos with the orange bottom edge appeared on the shoulders.
As a result, the retro Wild Wing jersey could possibly be another primarily dark-colored throwback like the ones shown below. If orange isn’t the main color, then maybe orange appears again in the hockey stick in a darker throwback with the webbed Duck logos on the shoulders.
It appears we could have an official answer in the month of November or sooner.
What do you prefer? Orange, Purple, or Black? Or another main color?
