Coachella Valley Firebirds unveil its first jersey

We finally got a look at the Coachella Valley Firebirds' first-ever jersey.

The team presented the jersey at a news conference Monday morning at the Palm Springs Air Museum.

The jersey prominently features the Firebirds' red, orange and deep navy logo with a fierce-looking bird breathing fire. The secondary logo on the jersey is a palm tree against a field of mountains. The palm tree has nine fronds, one for each Coachella Valley city. The jerseys come in deep navy and white.

The jerseys are now available for purchase on the team's website.

The Firebirds got a little help celebrating the milestone from its NHL affiliate, the Seattle Kraken, who delivered the jerseys in a treasure chest.

"Emerging from deep within the sea, the Kraken has sent a treasure chest containing the new Firebirds jersey and has trusted its care and delivery to hand-picked Seattle-based ambassadors. The chest will be delivered to Tim and Tod Leiweke who will open it, unveiling the official Firebirds jersey," reads an announcement by team officials.

In addition to the jersey unveiling, the Firebirds donated $10,000 to the Desert Blaze youth hockey team as a means to support youth hockey in the valley.
