Olds Grizzlys

Another AJHL update today. Olds actually uses an alright logo but I decided to change it up a bit, and get the hang of designing logos.

Leave a comment on what type of concepts you would like to see from me in the future!

AJHL Update

Today I look to fix the identities of two teams in the AJHL that have the worst logos in my opinion. First up is the Bonnyville Pontiacs who at the moment wear replica Penguins jerseys and only use their primary logo on their shoulders.

Here is their current logo:

And here is my updated logo and uniforms. The uniforms are a slight variation on last years Penguin's Stadium Series jerseys.

Next up is the Canmore Eagles. Currently the team wears Winnipeg Jets jerseys with this terrible logo as a crest.

And once again here is my update for the team. Instead of a well known Jets template the team would use a similar design to the St.John's Ice Caps jerseys.

Both teams current jerseys and logos can be found on their respective websites(Bonnyville, Canmore).

The Black Devil

New Jersey has never had an alternate jersey before. Sure they have worn a throwback jersey every once in a while, but they have never had an actual designated alternate uniform. So for this concept I throw out an idea that would make a good alternate jersey that suits the teams traditional aesthetics.

Damn Dirty Apes

For those of you who haven't heard, the ultra talented Fraser Davidson is offering a class(here) on designing sports logos on skillshare. I decided to watch the class and then came up with this logo based on Caesar from the recent Planet of the Apes movies.

Down in the Desert

When the Coyotes changed their name to the Arizona Coyotes, they also got rid of their black third jersey with the full body coyote logo. Although I did not really like the jerseys, I believe that the alternate logo is much better than the one that they use now. So for my concept I went back to the striping pattern of the team before the move to edge and swapped out the logo with the full body logo.

Orange County Concept

The Anaheim Ducks unveiled new uniforms before the start of this season. Although I do believe it is better than their previous set, the color balance on the away jersey is terrible. For my concepts I give a more balanced color scheme while maintaining more orange in the jerseys.

Arghh Matey!

Today I have a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey based loosely off of a jersey from the early Pittsburgh Pirates hockey team. I used a two tone style jersey, which seems to have started to gain popularity from Matt McElroy.

Flaming Throwback

On today's Throwback Thursday I am throwing back to an old Calgary Flames alternate jersey from a couple years back.

Also if anyone would like to submit concepts to the blog they can email them to me at:

Brooklyn Baby!

When the Islanders move to Brooklyn next year, there are rumours that they will have a new third jersey to share an identity with all other professional Brooklyn teams. For the concept I took the Brooklyn Nets (NBA) collar striping and made it into the striping. I kept the font of the Islanders previous black third jersey. 

Here is the jersey photoshopped onto John Tavares.

And just for fun I created this full uniform concept (template can be found here).

Hometown Hockey

I am from a place called Fort McMurray in northern Alberta. There is a team here that plays in the AJHL (Alberta Junior Hockey League); the Oilbarons. Their jerseys are just St.Louis Blues jerseys (before their recent redesign), except with the Barons logo on it. With these concepts, I stuck with the Blues theme but at the same time gave the team something different from St.Louis. The alternate is a jersey that the team previously wore for an anniversary game. 


Every year I play in a street hockey tournament in Fort McMurray. My team name is the Puck Bunnies, a joke reference to girls who like hockey players. I decided to mock up a logo and jersey for my team for next years tournament.

Outdoor Games

For this years Winter Classic between the Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals, I made some alternate uniforms for the two teams. For the Blackhawks I created a set based off of their original uniforms, and for the Capitals I created a fauxback using the colors used by the Caps in the 90's and early 2000's.

I created another possible set for a hypothetical Winter Classic next year between the Winnipeg Jets and the Minnesota Wild. For the Jets, the set is a throwback to one of the jerseys used by the Winnipeg Jets of the WHA. For the Wild, I thought the colours would work well with a barberpole stripe design.

Throwback Thursday

Today is a throwback to my very first concepts ever featured on Icethetics, 

and here is an update to those first concepts.
