The North Bay Battalion will sport two redesigned jerseys for the start of a new campaign.
The three major junior hockey leagues, including the OHL'S Battalion, have collectively decided to make a jersey change for the first time since 2009-10.
The CCM QuickLite concept modernizes the hockey uniform and provides players with a lighter jersey, enhanced range of motion, and the comfort to further improve performance.
Jersey fabric contains moisture-wicking properties with four-way stretch, softer hand feel, abrasion resistance, burst resistance, and breathability. The patented ergonomic arm fit is consistent with NHL designs, while the lightweight mixmedia crest techniques will increase mobility and speed as players are no longer impeded by the stiffness of full embroidery. Socks are also aligned with the jersey concept and include a new cut-resistant feature and QLT knit for a higher level of breathability.
The QuickLite concept features a consistent DNA across the CCM family of products pulling inspiration from their extensive line of equipment. All jerseys will include the new CCM DNA on the collar, new signature reflective branding on the back, plus the traditional regional league film patch and CCM brand on the front chest, and woven CHL branding on the back.
CCM has been the exclusive jersey provider for the CHL since the 2003-04 season, and in addition to jerseys, is the league’s premier equipment supplier. The CHL currently uses CCM products exclusively in categories that include helmets, visors, gloves, pants, hockey socks, and all under-protective equipment, plus a non-exclusive partnership in sticks, skates, and goalie equipment categories.
The Battalion is back on the ice September 14 and 15 when they travel to Owen Sound for the start of a home and home series with the Attack to round out the pre-season schedule.
