In addition to the name and colors, the Mighty Ducks also broke the mold of NHL jerseys of the day by introducing a diagonal stripe across the body of the jersey, something not seen in the NHL since the Pittsburgh Pirates of 1929-30. It would not take nearly as long for the next team to follow suit, when the St. Louis Blues and Calgary Flames would tilt their striping diagonally two seasons later in 1994-95 before all hell broke loose in 1995-96 with the zig-zag waist striping of the Colorado Avalanche, the watery wave striping of the New York Islanders Fishsticks jerseys and the new checkmark look of the Washington Capitals screaming eagle design, not to mention the debut of a series of third jerseys with color gradients, sawtooth striping, asymmetrical designs, a curved sash and the Mighty Ducks own "Wild Wing" abomination of sublimation, which featured a cartoon superhero duck bursting through the ice, a jersey so reprehensible it was only worn six times and the players requested not to be pictured wearing in the following seasons's media guide!
Bonus jersey: Today's bonus jersey is a 1996-97 Mighty Ducks of Anaheim Joseph Marha jersey. The Mighty Ducks wore CCM jerseys for their first three seasons before changing to Nike jerseys for 1996-97. The following season they would introduce not one, but two alternate jerseys, one in white and the other jade, which would be used for two seasons until the jade one was dropped from the lineup when the Mighty Ducks changed to ProPlayer brand jerseys for 1999-00.
