The Rochester Americans today unveiled the special-edition third jersey that the team will wear for select home games throughout the 2020-21 season, presented by Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, in celebration of its historic 65th season in the American Hockey League.
The jerseys will be worn for all eight of the Amerks’ televised games on CW Rochester this season, beginning on Opening Night when Rochester hosts the Utica Comets on Friday, Feb. 5 at The Blue Cross Arena.
The Amerks will wear a sweater inspired by one worn during the team’s first Calder Cup championship season of 1964-65. The timeless red jerseys pay tribute to the early years of the franchise and feature the classic stars and stripes shield on the front outlined in black, with a thicker black border enveloping the right side of the crest to create a shadow effect.

Six white stars adorn the shoulders, with three on each side, symbolic of Rochester’s six Calder Cup championships. Each arm features a thick royal blue stripe with a thinner white band at the top and bottom, and a white lace-up also accentuates the neckline.
Replica 65th Anniversary jerseys will be available for purchase online at www.shoponebuffalo.com as well as in the Amerks Team Store presented by ADPRO Sports when fans can safely return to The Blue Cross Arena for live events.
The Amerks open their 65th season in the American Hockey League at 7:05 p.m. when they host the Utica Comets at The Blue Cross Arena. All the action will be carried live on The Sports Leader 95.7 FM/950AM ESPN Rochester as well as AHLTV. Rochester’s Home Opener will also be televised live locally on CW Rochester.
