T-ROY

NHL by Under Amour (Arizona Coyotes)

Recommended Posts

I've always hated two things about the NHL: the Reebok jersey templates and the over-use of color schemes. So I thought, "What would the NHL look like if every team was completely individualized?" and came to this idea. I want to make the teams more individual. This would mean to change their color schemes and jersey designs. Then I thought about what if this was a project set in the future.

With Reebok's deal with the NHL ending in 2016, the chances for a new manufacturer of jerseys is very likely so I thought about potential manufacturers. There's still Reebok in play with Nike, Bauer, and Under Amour. This idea would be pointless if I chose Reebok again, so no Reebok. Nike would be the most likely, but I think their current jersey for the IIHF wouldn't fit with the NHL, so no Nike. That just leaves Bauer and Under Amour. Bauer is more of a equipment manufacturer while Under Amour is more of a clothing manufacturer. One of these would be the perfect fit. I chose Under Amour. I think they with their "technology" it would be possible for a jersey that could be as light as a Nike jersey while maintaining the bulkiness of a CCM/Reebok jersey. Plus, Under Amour isn't a frequently used brand in the hockey scene other than for their, well, Under Amour.

Back to the designs and re-coloring. My idea was for no team to have the same or obliviously similar design or color schemes. With the color schemes, it would be difficult to have completely different color schemes for each team, so I decided that if a team has normally two of the same colors (primary & secondary), they would simply have different primary colors. Trust me, you'll understand this as this goes on.This means a lot of untouchables well be touched. Classic color schemes and designs will be changed with much dislike among fans, but Under Amour believes that the fans will grow to love them. I have color schemes set with changes most likely to come although I will be taking suggestions, but if they are too similar to another teams colors, I will simply disregard it.

The first set I decided to do was the...

Montreal Canadiens

(Pretty bold choice for first concept, eh)

I wanted to have relatively the same design they already have and have had for a very long time. I've always thought about Montreal being Canada's team (screw you Toronto). I wanted to keep the red, blue and white color scheme, but I also wanted to change it. Going more of a vintage route, Canada's flag back in the hay days of British rule was Red, Blue, White and Gold. So I added gold.

The gold looks great on this concept! Just make sure to put the manufactor's mark on the jersey. I've also heard rumors of Warrior taking over.

I don't know. Something seems wrong about the French Canadian team using the colors of British Canada.

The manufacturer's mark is there...behind the left arm of the front jersey. I'll fix these and put it on the front. Thanks for letting me know

Just another, nit-picky thing here: Why is Under-Armour using a template nearly identical to the Reebok edge template?

They already make hockey jerseys for some NCAA teams, and use a much different template.

I completely understand. From what I've seen of there jersey it is just a few nit-picky things. The collars are different, but the indexes on the bottom sides of the jerseys are still there from what I've seen. Personally, to be completely honest, I really just don't wanna make a whole new template mainly because I don't know how great it will turn out. But if this becomes more asked for then I might just do it.

Also edited jersey with Under Amour logo on front

the gold doesn't look like the Canadiens.

It's the whole point of the series. Take a look at the text at the top of the first post.

There's an under armour template on HJC

The way the template is presented makes it a worse template in my opinion, but like I said the templates are already pretty similar. Like Eric said, I see it more as a nit-picky thing.

Chicago Blackhawks

With there being so many red and black teams in the NHL, I found the easiest to mess around with the Blackhawks. It would make more sense as well if the Blackhawks' primary color was black since black is in their name. Two different sets of pants just to make the different sets match.

I think on the white Blackhawks jersey, if you cut the red stripes down to two from three, it'd be awesome! Great concept! It's just too busy with the three, but still looks nice.

Are the Blackhawks supposed to be black or gray? It looks like a dark gray to me.

Yes they are supposed to be black

I'm curious to see what you did with the Bruins now. These are really cool

Just since you asked, I'll do them next. You can expect some brown.

I wasn't really feeling the Blackhawks away jerse so I worked a bit on it. Give me your thoughts on which one you prefer. Left, Right or Bottom?

I like top right. I've never really liked Chicago with different colored collars/yokes.
