There are three periods in a hockey game. There were three "Mighty Ducks" movies. Coincidence?
The Cincinnati Cyclones don't think so.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the "The Mighty Ducks" the heralded sports classic that spawned two sequels and an NHL Network documentary earlier this year, the ECHL team will wear some special jerseys for their Jan. 27 game against the Fort Wayne Komets.
In fact, the Cyclones will wear three different jerseys modeled after the ones worn in the movie trilogy.
In the first period, the Cyclones will wear the classic green jersey with purple, gold and black trim from the original 1992 hit. However, instead of a skating duck, the logo will be a skating cyclone.
The second period will feature the USA jerseys from the 1994 sequel "D2" when the rag-tag junior team competed in the Junior Goodwill Games. The word "Cyclones" will be written on the left sleeve.
The third period will feature the jersey from the third movie, which was also the first-ever uniform for the NHL's Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, now known as the Anaheim Ducks.
