UPDATED: San Diego Gulls Jersey Concept

Two years in a row, our artist, Justin Cox, has accurately provided comps of the jerseys to be worn by the LA Kings at their outdoor games weeks before the actual sweaters were released to the public (see here and here). MayorsManor was able to do this, in large part, based on information we gathered from multiple sources. Using additional intel, we also had him comp up some Ducks jerseys for the Dodger Stadium outdoor game and a few Sharks ideas for their game at Levi’s Stadium later this month.

While did we break news of the Ducks plans to use Gulls as the name of their San Diego team earlier this week, gathering any info on their jersey plans has been quite the challenge. The consensus seems to be – although unconfirmed as of yet – that they will use sweaters similar to what the parent club wears. At the very least, the colors will very likely be the same, as it helps keep start-up costs down for things like gloves and helmets.

Further, even with a financial arrangement in place allowing the Ducks to take over the San Diego Gulls name for their AHL team, we would expect them to redesign the logo. Yet, until we get confirmation of such, we didn’t ask Cox to come up with anything new.

As a starting point, here is what the 2015 Gulls jerseys may look like:

And here is a look at the same sweater with an updated version of the Gulls’ old IHL logo:

The official jerseys will be unveiled at a San Diego HockeyFest event hosted by the Ducks on February 22. Meanwhile, the Kings will unveil the new Ontario Reign jerseys at a press conference this coming Wednesday. MayorsManor will provide full coverage.

  1. The first long is a complete rip off of the Long Island Gulls logo: http://pointstreaksites.com/view/ligulls#.VNksmubF98E

    • John Hoven says

      The logo used on the first jersey is taken from the San Diego Gulls of the WCHL (and later the ECHL), who began using that logo in 1995. Can’t speak to the start date of the Long Island club.
