2014-2015 NHL Jersey/Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

I'm watching Jets-Wings and noticed that Detroit's red helmets now have the Red Wings script in red with a thick white outline rather than single-layer white. This new for this year? I don't like it.

EDIT: appears to be some helmets but not all.

On their white helmets the script is white with a red outline. I'm not a fan of either. The rest of the Wings' uniform is as simple as it gets, so the switch is an unnecessary step away from that simplicity.

I agree that's a stupid change and there was no good reason for it. It doesn't do anything to improve their look. They probably did it just to mess with people like us who obsess over small details haha.

That helmet-script change is pretty lame and completely unnecessary. That Yellow Kings jersey is absolutely fabulous. I want one!

Sharks wore their Stadium Series jerseys again tonight. Indoor lighting does them no favors.

Definitely not, however, I'm glad that the Sharks have at least used it for a second game. Seeing the Penguins, Ducks, and Blackhawks not use their Stadium Series jerseys for a second game was a bit of a waste in my opinion, especially Pittsburgh because until they brought out their gorgeous throwback this season, that Stadium Series Jersey was the best jersey they had last season, though I wish they would have made it Vegas Gold instead of white. Also, I see that it's now March and the 2015-16 thread still has no news about changes for next year.

I'm surprised the Ducks didn't (and don't have any plans) to use their orange Stadium Series jersey again, especially with how popular it was among the fans and is at the games. I mean they made that "OC" shoulder logo just for that game, and I thought they were really going to play that up going forward, especially on merchandise. But so far nothing. The only use since then has been the Jr. Ducks this season.

But with that popularity, I'd guarantee the next future Ducks alternate (whenever that is, might be two years with the new roads this season, which have also been quite popular) is orange

The OC patch was fine for the Stadium game as they were playing off the LA vs OC angle, but beyond that one game it feels like an unnecessary addition.

I'm surprised they didn't wear it more either. I'm not a big fan of that jersey because it is close to being as plain as the Oilers' hideous Edge Jerseys from 2007 but I love that it is orange. If the Jr. Ducks use the OC patch, then it doesn't need to be brought back in my opinion, though it was a decent shoulder patch for the Outdoor Game and it would be a decent choice for a new third jersey. I think an orange third jersey would be great, even if they did bring back the Stadium Series Jersey, but, I could actually see the Ducks bringing the Mighty Ducks throwback from last year back as an alternate jersey. I think that would fly with a lot of Ducks fans. From what I remember, that jersey was really popular with many people.

The OC patch was fine for the Stadium game as they were playing off the LA vs OC angle, but beyond that one game it feels like an unnecessary addition.

If they decided to make a new alternate jersey, then it would be okay with me but I wouldn't want to see it on the Ducks' new primary jerseys.

Tomorrow's throwback jersey night for the Coyotes! An odd coincidence I just realized is that both the Arizona Coyotes and Arizona Diamondbacks are wearing late 90s/early 2000s throwback uniforms this year.

This is Mike Smith's mask for throwback night:

And then brace yourselves for the back of it:

Alice Cooper lives in Phoenix and is actually a big hockey fan and goes to Coyotes games (although he's from Detroit and is actually a Red Wings fan... so I guess he is the Arizona hockey fan haha)

Awesome to have the logo applied on the mask like that.

The back fits just fine: Smith isn't the first goalie to have a rocker on his mask, and Cooper lives in the Phoenix area and is a big hockey fan. I guess he's kind of a throwback, too. ;)

EDIT: Not that I'm a fan of airbrushed rock stars on goalie helmets; just saying it's nothing too far out of the ordinary and "fits" in that sense.

Shoulder patches really need that sand-colored outline. They kinda get lost amid everything else otherwise.

<3 Hunter green

Wish there was more green on the jersey than black...

I'm watching the game, and it has the pattern on it, just shrunk down. I wonder if they could have just made the collar the patterned portion, and then sewn the green and black outlines onto the yoke instead.
