Reworking NHL Uniforms

There's another new artist I've received several submissions from but he's not looking to redesign team logos league-wide — just the uniforms. His sets include a home, road and alternate jersey for every club. On Sunday I posted his Ducks set (it's the first one in the post). But he's been working his way through the NHL alphabetically and I have a few more to share with you today.

We'll begin with the Thrashers.

I have yet to see a design from him that I don't like. And that streak continues with the Bruins.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the post you'll see a bonus alternate sweater design. But first, the Sabres.

A very unique set here mixing old with new in terms of logo design — a rare example of the designer going with a completely new logo. The Flames are next.

In this design he reintroduces the horse head secondary logo (which I always liked) while keeping the jerseys mostly unchanged except for the striping patterns.

And finally, here's a look at that bonus Bruins alternate design.

It's basically a black version of the yellow one above.

I'm enjoying very much being able to post some outstanding work lately from some very talented artists. I look forward to being able to share more with you as ICETHETICS launches in just one week.

IMO, the two words which best describe these designs are "epic" and "win". My only, minor, dislike is of the double-stripe on the B's alts...but otherwise, spot on.

I actually really liked those double stripes on the alternates.

I don't like that the horse replaced the two flags on the flames home and away jerseys though. It was giving the team more of an identity by using the flags rather than the horse.

i'm glad to see that the Sabres jerseys put more emphasis on the sabres themselves then the buffalo.

I am not a big fan of the curves that he used in the Ducks and Thrashers. They seem like they would be very difficult to manufacture and they seem like they would not look right on the ice. Each angle of the player would be a different view because of the curves.

The Thrashers, Sabres, and Flames jerseys look incredible here. For the Thrashers, the brown on the logo doesn't match the light-blue on the jersey normally, but somehow it works here. For everybody in the Sabres' organization.. is a logo with actual sabres too much to ask for?

The Sabres is the only one I really like more than the current unis. That said, the Sabres one, with the subtle logo redesign is the most amazing I have seen for the Sabres. None are bad, or even OK, all at least sorta good.

P.S. The horse was always sorta a cool alternate. Good for using it.

I've known this designer for a while now, well, not known him known him... anyways. he's always had great ideas and he hasnt slipped over the years.

the gold bruins alt is killer. classic style and a throw back to a mega oldschool jersey.

thrashers look awesome with the blues and yellow and white as the colors, but like someone else said, the extra colors on the logos dont fit

Those are all excellent. Especially the Sabres. Of course, just about anything would be an improvement over the tripe we currently wear.
