NAHL Hockey Team Will Wear This Chewbacca Jersey For ‘Star Wars Night’

Some variation of “Star Wars Night” is a time-tested staple all the way back to a long time ago and even in galaxies far, far away among the minor league sports league set, but the Chewbacca jersey the NAHL’s (North American Hockey League) Port Huron Fighting Falcons will wear for their second annual incarnation of “Star Wars Night” on Oct. 22 is beyond awesome.

This year’s jersey features the mighty wookiee Chewbacca, with Rebel Alliance logos on the shoulders, and Millennium Falcon silhouettes around the waist. A pink breast cancer awareness ribbon appears on the upper left of the jersey’s front side. The jerseys were designed by Great Lakes Garrison’s Scott Withers.

Brilliant. But if the Fighting Falcons do not seize the wonderful opportunity presented them and replace the traditional goal horn with the beloved Wookiee’s trademark, gutteral “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgh!”, I’ll be profoundly disappointed.
