Generals hockey team debuts ‘Zombie’ jerseys to celebrate blood drive

Thursday morning saw the Eugene Generals officially reveal the newest edition of ‘zombie’ jerseys specially designed to celebrate the upcoming fourth annual Eugene Generals Blood Drive on Saturday, February 23.

In what has become a beloved yearly tradition within Eugene’s hockey community, the Generals and Lane Bloodworks have teamed up once more to host a blood drive at The Rink Exchange, the home facility for the Eugene Generals, Eugene Jr. Generals, and hockey throughout the Emerald Valley.

As part of that tradition, the Generals have collaborated with Harrow in each of the past four years to design a unique ‘zombie’ jersey to celebrate the event. This year’s design continues the tradition of eye-popping sweaters that look fresh off the set of The Walking Dead.

“The Eugene Generals Blood Drive has become one of the staples of our season and it’s such a tremendous opportunity for our organization and our fans to give back to the community that has been so loving to us for fourteen seasons,” said Generals GM Alex Stimson.

“When we first launched this event four years ago, we weren’t quite sure how it would be received and what the response from the community would be. Our worries were quickly wiped away when we saw how much the Eugene and Springfield hockey community rallied around this great cause with our great partners at Lane Bloodworks. It’s become an event that our fans immediately ask about at the start of each season, and we’re happy to bring it back for its fourth consecutive year.”
