Up next are the Moscow Stars. They had a classy look that they stuck with the entire time.

 

They took to the ice in 1990 wearing this:

In 1995, they debuted these wild alternates:

In 1997, they changed up their alternate:

In 2002, they introduced these blue uniforms. They split road games evenly between their red and blue uniforms:

A classic look that I never really thought would be touched that much! Have loved them since I saw them on the Watertown Braves in the old Pan-Am and knew I had to take them when this league popped up! All I was really looking for were wacky Alts and that's exactly what I got! And that blue one is a thing of beauty too!

Just so everybody knows, I'm going to get through the designs of the original 20 teams, and then posting how each season went and introducing each new team in their first season.

 

Up next are the Prague Golems.

 

The Golems took to the ice wearing these uniforms in 1990:

1990-91.png

 

After a fairly successful first season, the Golems introduced a new look:

1991-95.png

 

In 1995, the Golems added an alternate uniform:

In 2001, the silver alternate was promoted to full time use:

In 2009, the popular black uniform from the 1990s returned as an alternate:

In 2011, the 1990s look came back:

Wow Prague looks sick!

By the way for those wondering, I actually came up with a meaning for each stripe of the 1995 uniforms when I originally suggested them, Bleu represents Historie (History), Blanc represents Fierté (Pride), and Rouge represents above all else Communauté (Community). Each stripe is made into a "V" shape to represent Victorie (Victory). The other reason for Red being added was because it was to match Montreal's flag

Up next are the Riga Griffins.

 

The Griffins took to the ice in 1990 wearing these classy uniforms:

In 1991, the Griffins added a special alternate based on the flag to celebrate Latvian independence:

1991-92.png

 

In 1992, the Griffins went back to their normal look:

1992-96.png

 

In 1996, the Griffins added a gray alternate:

In 1999, the popular flag alternate from 1991 was brought back:

1999-08.png

 

In 2008, a new alternate was designed based on the Latvian naval ensign and variant flag:

2008-11.png

 

In 2011, to celebrate 20 years of Latvian independence, a new crimson uniform was designed to match the alternate from the year before:

2011-12.png

 

In 2012, due to massive jersey sales, the new crimson uniform was promoted to full time, and the old one was kept on as an alternate:

Up next are the St. Petersburg Horsemen.

 

Their original uniforms actually featured a logo using the city's old name of Leningrad (the city changed it's name to St Petersburg in 1991) nobody picked up on that in the original thread, so I figured I'd point that out:

1990-91.png

 

They updated their uniform when the city changed it's name, and used this look for the next ten years:

1991-01.png

 

In 2001, the team was sold to a new owner, and in an effort to distance itself from it's rival Riga, the Horsemen changed their color scheme to black and orange:

2001-03.png

 

In 2003, the team added its first and to date only alternate uniform:

2003-12.png

 

In 2012, the team went through a rebrand tying together different parts if the team's history:

Up next are the Saskatoon Blazers. They had a classic look that drew inspiration from the St Louis Blues, Colorado Rockies, Florida Panthers, and Calgary Flames...

 

The Blazers took to the ice in 1990 wearing these uniforms:

1990-99.png

 

In 1999, a red alternate was introduced:

1999-06.png

 

In 2006, the Blazers modernized their look:

2006-10.png

 

In 2010, the red uniform was promoted to full time use:

2010-15.png

 

In 2015, the Blazers brought back their original look while keeping the red jersey as an alternate:

All of these are terrific. 

 

 

My team (The Icebreakers) still has some gorgeous jerseys. I feel the designs used here are sleek & very nice.

I did, I actually mentioned that to @BostonStrong13 in a PM

Anyway St.Petersburg  looks awesome, and the Blazers look suites them well.

Up next are the Seattle Orcas.

 

The Orcas took to the ice wearing these uniforms in 1990:

1990-91.png

 

After only one season, the Orcas changed up their look and added a secondary logo:

1991-94.png

 

In 1994, the Orcas added a blue alternate uniform:

In 1998, the Orcas moved right across the border to become the Vancouver Spirits. The new logo was a thunderbird in the shape of a V, also not that the chest stripe makes a V:

1998-02.png

 

In 2002, the Spirits added an orange alternate:

2002-07.png

 

In 2007, the Spirits rebranded to a new logo based on some Native Canadian art:

2007-10.png

 

In 2010, the Spirits added a black alternate:

Up next is Stockholm.

 

They had a very simple and classic look that stayed mostly the same throughout their history. The Stockholm fans were very superstitious about their look after some early success. They wore this uniform set for the first 7 seasons:

1990-97.png

 

In 1997, the Norsemen added a yellow jersey. It was popular with fans and the team did well while wearing them:

1997-03.png

 

In 2003, the Yellow jersey became their full-time home jersey:

2003-09.png

 

In 2009, the white jersey returned:

My Orcas.... :(

 

I'm getting some serious Whalers deja vú over here. Expansion (hopefully, I can hope, right)?

 

They do look good in Vancouver though.
