Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the Hamilton Bulldogs have unveiled their new alternate jersey for the upcoming OHL season.

The so-called “Stealth” jersey is primarily black, with white and static grey trim, and the team’s popular standing Bulldog logo is featured as the crest on the front of the sweater.

In a statement, the team says the Stealth jersey “represents our philosophy on and off the ice, characterizing our swiftness, velocity and strategy be it for plays, decisions or new opportunities.”

The team will sport the new jersey for the 2020-21 season, which is set to start in February.

“We wanted this to represent our city and our team moving into 2021 on a clean slate,” said Hamilton Bulldogs President and General Manager Steve Staios.

“We wanted to have something really exciting for you (the fans) in 2021.”
