Hen is the phrase for the American Hockey League’s Windfall Bruins as they bringing some preventing spirit from the TV display with them to the rink.
One Wednesday, January 31, the Bruins unveiled particular jerseys that they’ll put on for his or her Rhode Island Comic Con Weekend: Friday, February 16, towards the Bridgeport Islanders and Sunday, February 18, towards the Hartford Wolf Pack.
The emblem on the entrance of the jersey combines Rhode Island hockey historical past with the state’s most well-known animated household: the Griffins from “Household Man.”
The Windfall Reds performed within the Canadian-American Hockey League from 1926 to 1936 and the American Hockey League from 1936 to 1977, and their jerseys featured a purple rooster on the entrance. For 2024, the Bruins have reimagined the rooster because the hen from “Household Man,” with whom Peter Griffin has had some epic fistfights all through the present’s run.
The bottom of the jersey is black, with purple squared-off shoulders and a purple collar with black laces. The arms and waist function extensive purple stripes with narrower white stripes beneath. An RI Comedian Con brand sits on the precise chest, whereas a “strolling bear” brand seems on every shoulder by which the bear appears like Stewie Griffin’s teddy bear, Rupert.
The Reds left Windfall in 1977 to turn out to be the Binghamton Dusters. The franchise would finally relocate once more in 1997 to Hartford and turn out to be the Wolf Pack — one of many Bruins’ opponents on RI Comedian Con Weekend.
The subsequent version of the Rhode Island Comedian Con takes place November 1 to three, 2024, on the Rhode Island Conference Heart and Amica Mutual Pavilion in Windfall.
