AHL to use Reebok’s new technologically advanced uniform system

American
Hockey League President and CEO David Andrews announced that all 29 AHL
teams will use Reebok’s new Rbk EDGE Uniform System beginning with the 2007-08
season.

This
league-wide uniform innovation was established by Reebok with the National
Hockey League earlier this year with performance and safety at the forefront of
the design process. After more than two years of research and testing, the Rbk
EDGE Uniform System will debut this fall in only two leagues worldwide: the NHL
and the American Hockey League.

Featuring
technologically advanced materials and fabrics that are more breathable and
more resistant to water absorption and that offer greater range of movement,
the Rbk EDGE Uniform System provides comfort and improved compatibility with
equipment while helping to enhance player performance. Highlights include:

Four
lighter fabrics incorporated in the jersey, pants and socks to keep players
drier while also adding increased durability to the uniform

The
jerseys’ stretch fabric in the collar features Rbk’s innovative Playdry
moisture management technology to maximize comfort, breathability and
temperature control

The
stretch mesh in areas including the underarms and back provides additional
range of motion and increased ventilation

4Way
Stretch Pique features Rbk’s latest innovation, Bead Away water repellent
technology, offering freedom of movement while retaining 76 percent less moisture
than current AHL jerseys

X-trafil
is incorporated into high-abrasion areas such as the shoulders and elbows to
provide increased durability

All 29 AHL
teams will be unveiling their

new
jersey designs in time for the start of the 2007-08
regular season on Oct. 3. The American Hockey League will also be unveiling
designs for the 2008 AHL All-Star Classic later this fall. Photo galleries
featuring the

new jersey
designs will be available on theahl.com as they are unveiled.
