I've always loved the old duckbill goalie mask... I'm a sucker for cartoon mascots, in general. So I wanted to use it, but looking at the original it seems a little busy now... the mask was backed by a circle, and a triangle, and two crossed sticks... too much. So I simplified. As for the color scheme, I just went with the current, swapping out the black for a very dark green.

And here it is...

I really like the Ducks, my only problem is the little bit of black in the circle of the logo looks out of place with no black on the jersey. Keep it on the mask, but recolour that part of the circle green. Everything else has been great so far, keep it up

I'm getting a bit of a U of Miami vibe from the Ducks concept. But it is nice. Nice job.

IMO, purple and gold > purple and silver > purple and black.

yeah I'm not sure I'm diging the black, would like to see the look with out it, also the castle ridges feel real 90s to me.

That looks great, especially the home iteration. The Blue Jackets need to get rid of their boring jerseys and do something out of the box like this.

Looks a little too busy, they look more like ugly Christmas sweaters than hockey sweaters. I don't mind the trees on the alt because it's an alt and the creativity is really cool. but the home and rode have way too many colors and stripes of all kinds of widths. I think getting rid of the colors at the end of the sleeves and making the tan around the stripes symetrical it would look a lot better

Thought of an idea for an alt so I added it.

And, yes, I'm aware it looks like a Christmas sweater. Who doesn't love Christmas sweaters?

The alt is easily the best! I like it.

The home and away need about half as many stripes...

I like what you've done with the Wild. It's a look that doesn't malign what works with their current look, and tries to include all of their main colors effectively. I do agree with the other posters that the stripes on the green and white sweaters do need reduction, and I'll add that the font really doesn't work with the look (the Wild's old number font would be perfect) and that the red pants don't really work with the set (green breezers would look better). Other than that, I really like what you've done with the NHL, especially the simplified Ducks.

I was starting to think the same about switching the red breezers to green (especially since it would work so well with the alt) so your comment just pushed it over the top for me. Here you go...

As for all the stripes... I'm going to be stubborn a little while longer, I think. There's an internal logic to the stripe pattern that works with other elements on the uniform, although maybe I'm the only one who can see it and/or cares.

Dude stop using strips on all the jersey. Like same thing for every team. So simple anyone could cold come up with it. Just so boring see the same thing 50 thousand times

I haven't used even one strip. Stripes? Oh, hell, yeah, lots of stripes, but I've made it a point to avoid strips at all costs.

Also, is "could cold come up with" some new slang? I'd like to know for sure before I start dropping it into my conversations.
