Continuing with our Maryland pride theme this week, the University of Maryland hockey team on Friday debuted their new jerseys for this season and they are awesome. They’re designed by Rebirth Sports, a custom jersey creating company located in Saginaw, Michigan.

I’m going to go ahead and declare that these sweaters are superior to last year’s.

And they certainly will go well with these pads.

    i would do pretty much anything for maryland to make the jump to D1 so we could have #cawlidgehawkey in the dc area. penn state did it and now there’s a #B1G hockey conference, sooooo… #GoBucks

    Pretty sure it’s been awhile since they’ve had those other jerseys. They had some sick white ones last year and the year before with the Maryland flag

    Can’t believe the team isn’t collegiate

  • Mark Mille

    When I worked tickets/donations for the team a few years ago, an old captain of the team told me that because it has the College Park Logo and since they were not an official collegiate team, just a club team they werent allowed to sell them. I do believe they have an online store though

  • Mark Mille

    Ian, you are making me fall in love with College Park Hockey all over again

    Here’s a full gallery from the guy that painted it. http://imgur.com/a/mVSOV

    Thanks for the gallery. He’s a Chipotle fan!

  • Dan

    Can’t find the store, but would love to get one of these!

  • Mark Mille

    After doing some searching as well, looks like they no longer run the store on their website, http://www.umterpshockey.com/ the team doesn’t get much coverage and stuggles, at least it was a few years ago, to fully pay for ice time at Lauren Gaurden’s ice rink. It is tough for students to go out to their games because they play in Laurel and not at Herbert Wells Ice Rink, but they practice there and have a team room there as well.

    It is largely unknown or cared on campus that there is an ice hockey club play up to the D2 level. This is a college club team, not a collegiate team sponsored by Maryland, the jerseys in the post would be unavailable for purchase due to copyright/trademark laws (specifically the black jersey) given the presence of a UMDCP symbol.

    Coverage by RMNB is fantastic for this them and hopefully increased interest will legitimize the team.

    If only the on ice product can match the jerseys after finishing last in their division last year. As for why they arent collegiate….money. Give them a 90 million dollar donation to build a program and they will (like Penn St did). Just hope the dont waste it on the 4th best college team in the state (Navy, UMBC, Towson).
