Comments

St. Lawrence has a new helmet design for the 2013 season (shown above), and Union has made a minor change (stripe sequence is different).


Historical Helmets

HOBART

? - 1998 1999 - 2000 2002 -

During 2001, Hobart used a helmet design similar to the current one, but with a different logo on the sides - the word "Hobart" in "athletic tail" format (see photograph below). I would appreciate a copy of this 2001 decal so that I may add this helmet to the web site.


MERCHANT MARINE

? - present

RENSSELAER (RPI)

c.early-mid 1960s c.1970s 1982 - 1983
1984 - 1988 1989 - 2010 2011 -

ROCHESTER

1973 - 1981 1985 - 1989 1982 - 1984; 1990 - 1998
1999 - 2005 2006 2011
2007 - 2010; 2012 -

The 1973 - 1981 helmet has been described as having a gold shell, gray facemask, and uniform numerals on the sides in an unspecified color.


ST. LAWRENCE

? - 2000? 2001 - 2008 2009 - 2012
2013 -
*see note 1 below

According to some information I received from Saint Lawrence, the "STL" logo was in use during the periods 1981 through 1984 and 1993 through 2000, while the script "Saints" was used in 1980, 1985 through 1992, and 2001 to present. Prior to 1980, the helmets were plain red with some different combinations of white and brown stripes.

*1 In 2013 the numerals are being worn only on the left side of each helmet, while on the right side is a shield with the letters "SLU" (as depicted below).


SPRINGFIELD

? - 2006? 2007 only? 2008 -

In 2007, this team used what was apparently a new logo for that season - the team name "Pride" in white letters, as may be seen in the photograph below. I would appreciate a copy of the helmet logo for this one, which would enable me to draw this one and add it to the web site.

Another helmet design used by this team in recent years featured the team name "Pride" in white, cursive letters; below is a photograph of this one. Again I would appreciate a copy of this helmet logo.
