ECHL’s Reading Royals to rock ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ jerseys in upcoming game (photo)

While not the first time a minor league hockey team has sported an “Ugly Christmas Sweater”-themed jersey (the Wilkes-Barrie Baby Pens come to mind for these atrocities back in 2011), but the Reading Royals — the ECHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals — have taken it to an entirely different level with their level of commitment to the theme.

The Royals will be spreading Yuletide cheer by rocking the above garish numbers during a home game against the Elmira Jackals on Dec. 14. Happy Holidays, indeed, or what have you.
