The Story

Capitalizing on the lack of hockey teams in a number of major American cities and mid-level Canadian cities, the WHA was the first major league to compete with the NHL. The Houston Aeros, who were originally slated to play in Dayton, Ohio, entered the league in 1972, playing at the Sam Houston Coliseum and eventually becoming one of the most successful franchises in the league. Among the star players for the Aeros were Gordie Howe and his two sons Mark and Marty, who became the first father/son combination to play together in professional hockey.

The Aeros graced the ice until 1978 when they folded due to a failed attempt to merge into the NHL (which made them the only WHA champion that did not eventually join the NHL).

Our signature tee that was crafted with the intention of being the softest shirt in your lineup. Made with a blend of fabrics including high quality combed and ring spun cotton, our tee is cut for a modern fit and printed with premium inks that actually blend into the fabrics giving it more character with every wash.
