Before they were the ECHL team with the most NHL prospects in the league, the Orlando Solar Bears were best known for having the best branding in hockey. The contrast between the city and the name was only topped by the graceful yet over the top look of the logo, and the jerseys that just screamed Sunbelt hockey. It was deliciously meta, quite like the original Phoenix Coyotes jerseys were basically Arizona on a shirt.
But the team has one-upped themselves.
