NHL Adidas Alternates (Blues added)

The Oilers made the decision to go back to orange, but they lost the best parts of their former home jersey. I basically kept all parts of the old blue beside the blue body.

Love the Oilers.  Best of both worlds and differentiates it even further from the Islanders.

Great job on the oilers. I would've been fine if that was unveiled as their home.

For the Red Wings, I wanted to combine all areas of their history, along with a modern twist with the D as primary and the Adidas collar.

Stars and Hurricanes are masterful.  You also managed to do something unique for Detroit.  I would be stoked if these uniforms were used by the real teams.

The Canucks are rich in logos and designs they could use for primaries and alternates. I darkened their blue, and applied the V logo with a new idea.

I love that green Canucks alt!  The vintage V logo looks great on those double white stripes.  My only suggestion would be to thicken the number outlines, they don't stand out as nicely compared to the logo.

 

The rest of this series is very good as well, there's not a single concept I don't like so far.

I'll second this and add you might want to thicken and/or enlarge the numbers, period. They look a wee bit small. I love the fact that you gave the Canucks a green alt, though. Most people don't do that and I don't see why it shouldn't happen. The Stars own green primaries but other than that green is a very rare color in the NHL, and kelly green in general is underused in North American pro sports. Stars, Canucks, Celtics, and...do the Roughriders still use a similar shade? Anyway, good job on these - I've liked every one I've seen thus far.

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!

Duuuuuude. The thing I don't like about the modern Senators' identity is that it just kind of blends in, aside from the logo, but even that doesn't stand out like it should. This really sets them apart from the other red/black teams in the league. Great combination of eras, and I think black was the right choice here.

For the Stars, I mixed both of their logo eras to come up with a modern twist on their original, then tweaked the jersey it was worn with.

That's very sharp. I wouldn't want it to replace their green primaries, but as an alt (which is what you meant it to be) it looks wonderful. I like how you subtly added some silver in there.

Another era mix, this time for the Penguins. I used their colour scheme and striping from the early '70s, yoke from the '90s, and 2017 Stadium Series logo.

The description of the Pens' look sounds like something that would never work, but it really is beautiful. It's a perfect alternate look for them. Well done.

 

I do like the Stadium Series as an alternate, but I wonder if this would look even better with a white-triangled primary as the crest.

Blue Jerseys of Doom! Get them away from Jake, he'll get hurt!

 

Jokes aside, that's a great look. I could definitely see them wearing that if they get in another Stadium Series match.

Sometimes I see a random object and base a concept off of it. That was the case for this all-blue Blues concept.

I know this is a series for alts, but I'd love to see a full set based on this concept. Really great work.
