The Centennial Classic pt. II

I have already uploaded my concept for what the Toronto Maple Leafs could wear for the Winter Classic next year. In today's post, I have a concept for the Leafs' opponent in the game. I have the Leafs playing the New York Rangers in the Winter Classic. They would be wearing jerseys that would be close to the white version of the original jersey they wore in the NHL. The pants design is based on the pants used by the Rangers from 1935-37.

The Grenfell Warriors

Continuing with creating logos for popular team names, today I am creating a logo for the Warriors. This just so happens to be the name of my university's sports teams so I decided to create a design more connected with the school rather than being a generic logo. The school  currently doesn't have a hockey program, but I have whipped up a concept of what a jersey with my logo would look like.

King of the Jungle

To try and improve my logo skills, I've decided to create logos for the some of the most popular team names there are. Today's concept is for the King of the Jungle, the Lion.

The Centennial Classic

During the NHL's 100th season the Leafs are trying to make Toronto the venue for the Winter Classic. With this concept I give a taste of what that might look like. The concept mixes a design similar to early Toronto Arenas design, while also using my favourite Maple Leafs logo. The white pants might be a little too much but I decided to go for it.

Futuristic Canadiens

Jared Lammi is back today with another concept. This one is for the Montreal Canadiens and has a very futuristic feel to it. I'm sure any fan of the Canadiens or any hockey fan in general would hate to see the team ever switch out their classic jerseys for these, but the whole reason for concepts is to create something different. This concept definitely does that.

Bolt of Lightning

Last year the Tampa Bay Lightning unveiled their new alternate jerseys, which many people didn't really like since it looked a lot like the LA Kings home jersey. My concept keeps the logo of their alternate and made a jersey that takes cues from Tampa's jersey history.

Grand Rapids Griffins Contest Entry

For the second year, HockeyJerseyConcepts is helping the Grand Rapids Griffins to create a specialty jersey that they will wear for one game. Anyone can submit a jersey design, with the team selecting the winning jersey by November 30th. I submitted a design last year but sadly did not win, so I have come back and hope for a better result this time around.

Let me know what you think of the jersey design and you can look over the rules and submit your own design over at HJC!

Vegas Gold Penguins

Last year the Penguins started wearing their throwback jerseys from the years they won the Cup. I love the design of that jersey, but some people have a problem with the jersey thinking that the colours are too close to the Bruins. My concept mixes the design of the Cup jerseys with their recent Stadium Series jerseys.

A Washington Classic

Today's concepts brings a new home and away uniform set to the Washington Capitals. The Capitals have left their best logo as just a shoulder patch since they created it. With this concept I put the "Weagle" where it belongs while the uniform takes cues from the Caps original uniforms.  

Have any ideas for future blog posts? Leave them in the comments or send in your own concept!

Mile High Alternate

Today I am back with an update for the Colorado Avalanche's new third jerseys. I maintained most of the elements of their new jerseys, but switched up the striping style and decreased the size of the logo. Let me know what you think in the comments!

CWHL Toronto Furies

I am back from a very long hiatus on the blog. With my summer job and getting ready for school, I haven't had much time to make updates here. Today I end the lengthy concept drought by finishing off my CWHL redesign with the Toronto Furies. Yesterday they released a new logo, which I updated for use on my concept.

CWHL Jersey Redesign

I still haven't gotten a solid idea for a logo for the Toronto Furies, but in the mean time I created uniforms for the four teams that I have finished logos for. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Rebranding the CWHL (May 11: Boston Blades added)

Sorry everyone for the long wait between blog posts. I was on vacation with my family in Orlando, getting to experience Disney World, Universal Studios, and Legoland for the first time. 

The CWHL(Canadian Women's Hockey League) has been in operation ever since 2007. Even though the league will be soon be celebrating their 10th year in 2017, the teams in the league have still not created logos for their jerseys, instead going the collegiate route by using a wordmark on their jerseys. 

I aim to rebrand all the teams that currently play in the CWHL. As of right now, I have three teams finished and will update this post whenever I complete the last two teams.

The End is Near

Today we have another concept from Jared Lammi. Once again he combines the tv show Sonic the Hedgehog with hockey. This time he says his concept will predict the Earth's future and save us from the end of the world.

Jared has made progress from his first submission on this blog. I am glad that he took my advice and starting using pre made templates, as well as adding actual fonts and numbers to his jersey. The only problem I have with the numbers and font on this concept is the gradient makes them hard to read. Another execution error comes from the stripes bleeding outside of the jersey. I hope you keep taking my advice, Jared, so that your concepts will have zero errors in them. 

I have one question for you Jared, on how you make your concepts? What app do you use on your iPad?

For everyone else reading the blog, I would be more than happy to put any concepts you have up on the blog. My email and concept requirements are on the side of this page.

Coyote Ain't So Ugly

After seeing the Coyotes throwback to their original uniforms, and with the news that they are going to be changing their uniforms next year, I have created an alternate uniform that combines old and new identities.

The Dream

With the Toronto Maple Leafs season gone down the toilet, the only thing any Leafs fan can look forward to now is the upcoming NHL entry draft. The hope is that the Leafs will have a miracle bestowed upon them and win the lottery and get to pick Connor McDavid with their first pick in the draft. Doesn't this just look like it is meant to be? 

This is the dream folks.

Classic Sabres

When the Bufallo Sabres changed their uniforms from the buffaslug to their more classic uniforms, it was agreed that they were way better. Now with time having passed, there are certain things that bug people about the uniforms, such as the piping, chest number and underarm being grey. I updated their jerseys to be more like their classic jerseys while maintaining the darker colours that they use today.

Cow Town

In today's concept I have updated the look of the Calgary Flames by giving them more traditional striping and numbers.

Battle of Penn State + Sonic

Todays concepts come from Jared Lammi. Jared has been making some progress with his concepts and I hope he keeps on striving to become better. The first concept is of both the Penguins and Flyers. I don't know if Jared intended to have both teams play each other in these jerseys but if so, it would be hard to differentiate teammate from opponent since both jerseys are gray.

His second concept is for the Vancouver Canucks, in which he has given them a Sonic themed jersey.

The one bit of advice I would give to you now Jared is that I have seen in most of your concepts you just fill in the areas with different colours and thats it. It would help if you tried to create striping schemes for the jersey to be more creative.

I am Groot

Just a small post today so that there is something new up. I created a logo for everyone's favourite talking tree, Groot. Let me know what you think and send in any concepts you may have that you would like to be seen on the blog.

Red Wing Stadium Series + New Template(Update: Added the other three teams)

Today I'm showing a concept of the Red Wings and what their uniforms may have looked like if they had played in a Stadium Series game this year. This is not what I would have done for an outdoor game but with the restrictions of the template the NHL used, there is only so much you can do.

I have added the new Stadium Series template to the speedy updated template on my Templates page just in case anyone would want this template specifically.


Here are the jerseys for the other three teams participating in the Stadium Series next year.

Blue Lightning

Today we have Jared's third submission shown on this blog.There was some improvement in his last set of jerseys compared to his first sent in, but I believe the concept he recently sent in is his best one yet. Like I did in a previous concept, Jared adds a gradient to the jersey but in a much different way.

Jared, I am glad that you took my advice in using a logo and an actual font for these. I like seeing you progress with every concept you send in. The only minor thing I would note with this concept is that the gradient striping slightly bleeds out of the edge of the jersey, and you also forget to continue the gradient on the backside of the jersey. Other than that, fantastic concept Jared!

The Green Men of Vancouver

This is the last season that the dynamic duo will wear their green suits in Vancouver. In honour of that, I have created an alternate third jersey that is predominantly green and calls back to the teams first jerseys from 1970.
