2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

So the Sharks have revealed an anniversary patch for next season:

San-Jose-Sharks-25th-Anniversary-Logo-35

I actually kind of like that silver is prominent here, and the new rendering of the Shark is pretty good (swimming instead of leaping). However, the Shark also seems like an afterthought in the logo, given how it's off center and above the "25."

They took the old secondary logo which had the tail fin below the stick and moved it above the dorsal fin

Heavy use of silver probably due to normal 25th anniversaries being known as Silver Anniversaries. Odd that it's a diamond shape though, as diamonds normally signify the 75th.

Where is that font from for the 25?

It looks to be a custom job.

And yikes, talk about cheap and lazy...they literally hit "Ctrl + C", rotated it 90°, then hit "Ctrl + V".

The lazy placement of the shark just kills it in my opinion. Looks like nobody bothered to position it when it was first pasted onto the canvas.

Someone asked IceJerseys on Twitter if they'll be selling the Coyotes throwbacks from last night, and the store responded they won't be getting them in stock until September. Not sure if they'll be Reebok Premier or CCM Vintage, but if it's the former, that could mean a return of the Kachina to the ice.

Ugh, that cartoon shark....original logo was the best, would still be in the top 5 of NHL logos today (just fix the sticktape)

If it is Reebok, I think it would mean a return because Reebok makes the home, away, alternate and special event (Winter Classic, Stadium Series, etc.) jerseys for purchase.

CCM handles all the mass production throwback/vintage jerseys through the Vintage brand, even when they have been worn in games. For example, the Mighty Ducks jerseys sold for last year were CCM, the Devils have worn their Christmas colours off and on, but are only sold in CCM cut and the Coyotes throwback being sold is CCM. The Kings yellow jersey being sold is Reebok, but it's listed as an alternate on the NHL Shop.

This leads me to believe if a throwback jersey is being sold in a Reebok cut, it is a part of the team's main jerseys (home, away, alternate, special event). But if the throwback is being sold as CCM, it's either just through the CCM Vintage brand or the team is wearing a one off thing.

(You can probably still find the Reebok version of all the throwbacks worn on ice through Ebay, but it's not the publicly sold ones though.)

Icethetics Jersey Watch 2015 is here!

Anaheim Ducks

New alternate

Arizona Coyotes

New home and away uniforms with a new primary logo. Could they be going back to the Kachina look full time?

Buffalo Sabres

The Turd Burger is being put out to pasture! Thank god.

Colorado Avalanche

Same home and road uniforms (seriously??) but a new third is on the way. No more "aqua" rangers ripoffs. Again, thank god.

New York Islanders

New alternate as was expected

Washington Capitals
New alternate. Chris seems to think it will be the red throwback but I wonder of the latest WC jersey will be used.

I don't even like the Brooklyn Nets identity for the Nets. Why would I like it for the Islanders?

1. I hope its orange

2. They should have done that this year. I hope its new and not that 90s throwback. Teams need to go forward and not backwards.

4. I liked the color. Didn't care for the wordmark.

5. Don't they have to modify the logo so the "I" in "Islanders" marks Brooklyn on the map instead of Uniondale?

6. I kinda dig those uniforms. Especially the red pants.

Well this sucks, i got one for Christmas and now it's being retired(Sabres 3rd)

EDIT: Considering most of the current branding revolves around the third jersey (Wordmark, numbers all over the arena) i won't if that'll change, or just stay the same without the jersey, like with the slug word marks

Take good care of it, maybe it'll become rare in the future. :P

1. Hope it involves the Mighty Duck Mask as a crest.

2. Kachina or a modern update of that. Hopefully. (PS: Bring back the moon at center ice!)

3. :woot:

4. I love the color of the current Alts, so hopefully that stays.

5. Will be black and white most likely.

6. If it's not the red throwback, maybe a Navy jersey with the WEagle? The WC jerseys were ugly.

Hopefully the Arizona Coyotes will have Nordiques jerseys in anticipation of the inevitable move.

Didn't think the Ducks would bring in a new third so soon. I'm fully expecting it to be orange. I'd like the Mighty Ducks crest to return but I'm not expecting it to.

The Coyotes rebrand should be interesting. Given the reception the throwbacks got, I'm also wondering if that'll influence the direction they take. But I doubt they'll straight up bring back the originals.

I actually don't mind the Avs current third, as much as it is a Rangers clone it's still better than the crummy home and roads.

Didn't someone just post new (possibly Kachina throwback) jerseys will be available in the Coyotes store in September? Gotta think they are going back to that logo, or those colors, or something...

Hoping the Avs bring back the burgandy faux-Rangers alternate. Shame they won't make changes to the home and road, and I wish they'd adjust the number font back to the pre-2007 days.

No Calgary ? Will they ever get rid of those horrors...

No kidding eh? That team is incompetent. They fix the striping and shoulder patch problems only to slap an awful script on the front and call it the third. SMH...

I hope the third is a direct throwback to the burgundy pre-edge. At least then, they could look decent half the time in the playoffs (should they make it). On another note, why do they have to look the Rangers? With a name like "Avalanche" there are plenty of options for being creative.
