Mighty Ducks of Anaheim
The Disney-owned Ducks never shied away from promoting a particular movie franchise. In 1995-96, the uniform designers must've thought the studio was releasing a a mash-up between Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Slap Shot . Thankfully, these were shelved after just one season.

below their waists. It's a shame they didn't wear the matching shorts which helped make the '70s uniform one of the ugliest in sports history.
