  1. NHL 2018-19

    Although it's early, there's enough discussion and rumours flying to start a new thread for next season. - The Ducks are reportedly switching to orange. - All indications point to the Sens adopting the =O= full time. - Were the Sabres Winter Classic jerseys/logos a test for next year?
  2. NHL 2017-18

    The “new” numbers are also an improvement, but I otherwise agree.
  3. Inspired by @Bpoe96's series, I'm back at it again, with a new series: NHL Identity Swap. In this set of concepts, I'll be taking the logo and jersey style of one team and implementing it on others. I'm really not much of a logo designer, so this series should be a challenge to me. First off: the EDMONTON OILERS with the style of the NEW JERSEY DEVILS. The Devils' home jersey has basic striping, where a thick stripe in their secondary colour of black is outlined by two stripes of white. It's repeated on the away sweater, only the white and black are swapped, creating an unbalance between the two sweaters, which I've implicated with the Edmonton colour scheme. It's not a far shot from Edmonton's current set. New Jersey's logo consists of a red devil's tail with the initials NJ sticking out, balanced out by a black circle. For Edmonton, I trimmed an E into the shape of the Oilers' biggest symbol, an oil drop, and put it on a blue circle. C&C Appreciated!
  4. NHL 2017-18

    Yeah, a mix of these two would be ideal.
  5. The Battle of Seattle

    I like the Bucks’ logo the most, though I prefer the Pilots’ identity as a whole. Although the identity looks nice, I like the Evergreens the least. I love the Mets’ logo, though the general identity is missing character.
  6. ldconcepts' NHL Identity Swap Series (ANA/NJD Added)

    Another idea I've been holding on to for a while. Since the Ducks logo is a D shaped around a webbed foot, I thought it would be natural to swap the foot for a pitchfork, and adjust the D to fit the shape. For the shoulder logo, I tweaked the new Binghamton Devils logo and laid it over the Mighty Ducks crossed sticks. For the uniform, I stripped down the Ducks’ busy pattern to fit a two colour scheme, and kept the Devils red as primary. C&C is appreciated for this newest installment along with the others!
  7. NHL 2017-18

    I’m all for bringing the fin back, but it just doesn’t work with any of the Sharks’ other logos. It would have to be recoloured to work (black with a teal highlight).
  8. ldconcepts' NHL Identity Swap Series (ANA/NJD Added)

    Here's a swap between two of the newest NHL identities, the Winnipeg Jets and the Vegas Golden Knights. For the primary crest, I replaced the jet with a golden sword, and the maple leaf with the Vegas star. I applied that to a recoloured Jets template. C&C Appreciated!
  9. ldconcepts' NHL Identity Swap Series (ANA/NJD Added)

    I've been holding onto this idea for a while. So, I'm gonna revive this series! The Flyers and Flames have similar bases for their logo: their namesake coming out of the first letter of their city name. That's where the similarities end, so I applied the Flyers simple colour scheme to the Flames modern jersey template. C&C Appreciated!
  10. NHL 2017-18

    Yeah, about that... It’s a unique look, that’s for sure, and I think it looks nice for a one-off game.
  11. NHL 2017-18

    Let’s hope that’s the full extent of white...
  12. NHL 2017-18

    Fake jersey manufacturers often take early concepts from online, thinking they’re the real jerseys. Here’s the concept:
  13. As usual, each update has this looking better and better. What would the horse look like with an orange mane?
  14. NHL 2017-18

    Does anyone know when the Leafs’ Stadium Series jerseys will be unveiled?
  15. Maple Leafs Stadium Series Prediction

    The Maple Leafs Stadium Series jersey is close to being unveiled. Here's my prediction, based on this hat being sold in the NHL Shop: C&C Appreciated!
  16. Anaheim Ducks Arizona Coyotes Boston Bruins Buffalo Sabres Calgary Flames Carolina Hurricanes Chicago Blackhawks Colorado Avalanche Columbus Blue Jackets Dallas Stars Detroit Red Wings Edmonton Oilers Florida Panthers Los Angeles Kings Minnesota Wild Montreal Canadiens (Update) Nashville Predators New Jersey Devils New York Islanders New York Rangers Ottawa Senators (Update) Philadelphia Flyers Pittsburgh Penguins San Jose Sharks St. Louis Blues Tampa Bay Lightning Toronto Maple Leafs Vancouver Canucks Vegas Golden Knights Washington Capitals Winnipeg Jets ALL I've seen a bunch of Adidas templates out there, but none have caught on with my style of concept-making. So, I decided to tweak a few templates I already use by adding a collar and shoulder texture, and came up with this concept for the Senators to test it out. I tried merging the modern Roman look with the everpopular barberpole look, and I like how it turned out. What do you think? C&C Appreciated!
  17. NHL Adidas Alternates (Series completed!)

    Here's a compilation of all 31! Which were your favourites?
  18. NHL Adidas Alternates (Series completed!)

    Last team! Thanks for everyone who commented! I used the Flames Heritage Classic palette, and combined it with an unused logo and an old striping pattern. C&C is still appreciated on every team!
  19. Oldschoolvikings' NHL concepts - Hartford Whalers added 1/26/18

    I like the general idea and colour distribution for the Whalers, though I would make the curves in the stripes more uniform.
  20. NHL Adidas Alternates (Series completed!)

    With the Wild adopting green as their home jersey colour, it's only a matter of time until their old red jersey comes back as an alternate. I tried to improve on it by combining it with their white jersey. C&C Appreciated!
  21. Seattle Sea Lions NHL Brand Exploration 2/1 Dark/Light Unis

    Great start so far! The sea lion shape looks nice, and I like both versions of the S. On the other hand, I’m not sure the stick is needed, but it definitely can work.
  22. NHL 2017-18

    Given the corresponding Caps toque, I think this Leafs toque offers a pretty good preview for their Stadium Series jersey:

    Anything on the Sharks or the Panthers?
  24. NHL Adidas Alternates (Series completed!)

    Here's a Panthers concept inspired by the Florida flag: C&C Appreciated!
  25. NHL Adidas Alternates (Series completed!)

    Here's another blackout concept, this time for the Sharks. I modeled the pattern after their alternate logo, which I used as the crest. 3 teams left! C&C Appreciated!
