Here are my concepts for the most recent HockeyJerseyConcepts Contest to design jerseys for the St. John's IceCaps for their new parent team the Montréal Canadiens. I took some inspiration from the current Montréal jerseys and twisted them slightly to make them unique.

Here they are. Let me know what you think!

It is pretty clear where the first two came from, by changing the angle of the horizontal stripe on the Habs jerseys it gives them a completely different feel and look, and still (in my opinion) looks classy and not out of place on a hockey jersey. The third jersey takes advantage of the grey which is in the IceCaps colour scheme, and the very popular alternate logo and makes a bit of a clash kit. The colour is light, so it would probably have to be used in replacement of the white jersey, not the red one.

This is absolutely fantastic. Great effort, great vision, and great presentation. Gives the identity a little edge but still connects them to the Canadiens.

Holy freakin' wow Batman ! ...also, if I remember correctly the Habs did wear a uniform with diagonal stripes a long time ago so it makes sense to bring it back.

One gripe tho, the gradient in the logo doesn't work with the look imo. Still, I'd buy one !

Nice job. A couple of thoughts I do like the grey alternate idea. But, did you think of giving it blue or red shoulders? Is the diagonal stripe on the backs necessary? I have an entry into the HJC IceCaps redesign also and i just want to help you in your creation as well. Good Luck to you in contest. I was thinking of the US's 1930's era track uniform that Jesse Owens wore in Germany when I saw the white jersey. Nice look you madejesseowens_olympics.jpg

I think only the very first Canadiens jersey had diagonal stripes but not like that. f33741f5b352e3b56d7d939ee609f046.jpg

This one from 1911-12 did:

Although the blog that provides the second image casts doubt on it ever existing: http://thirdstringgoalie.blogspot.ca/2014/01/setting-record-straight-1911-12.html

I'm really liking that diagonal striping, it's a great way to borrow from the parent while establishing their own identity.
