For the 2016-17 season, the National Hockey League has launched their NHL Color Rush promotion, in partnership with Reebok. All 30 teams will take part in this league-wide initiative. Teams will be unveiled throughout the next few weeks. Teams will combine elements of past, present, and future, to present their identities in a way to spotlight particular colors that make each team pop.

It's amazing, but the triangle is a little redundant, I would remove it

I agree, the triangle should either be white, or eliminated.

The triangle is gold because it represents the golden triangle of Pittsburgh, the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela to form the Ohio river

And it's ALWAYS gold!

I say you need hemline stripes, but otherwise it's a good start to the series!

Just put a black outline around it

To be honest, I'm not going to be adding hemstripes to the Color Rush series. As someone who is a hockey sweater traditionalist, I thought hemstripes really took away something from the color in this project. With that said, adding Montreal.

White pants, I mean I get that you probably can't have this NHL colour rush concept series without it, but still, white pants. *shudder* (not a genuine criticism)

 

That being said, white pants with a monochrome white get-up might not actually look THAT terrible on ice. It looks very strange when combined with dark jerseys.

 

I would prefer the Habs front/back stripes to go all the way around the entire jersey.

 

This is really cool, looking forward to seeing the rest.

I actually think black might work better, but yeah. Like the triangle on Pittsburgh, your design is getting muddled, a bit, when better outlining would really make the elements pop.

There's no black anywhere in the Detroit uniforms or color scheme. Why would that make any sense to add into the numbers? White is the way to go in this case.

I get your argument, but teams that limit themselves to only the "official" colors, religiously, are laughable. If your color scheme is anything and white, using black, sparingly, to add to the design, is totally fine. If you can make it work without, great, but there's no harm in it.

 

Conversely, you have teams that force every color into the jersey. It's fine to have a minor logo color not represented.
