NHL Adidas Redesign

Recommended Posts

I plan to redesign every NHL team, in no particular order, in the new Adidas style. Every team will have a home jersey, an away jersey, and an alternate jersey. The template is the same one used by Adidas in the NHL as it stands.

 

Here's the first team, the Vancouver Canucks.

The Nucks retain their green, blue, and white aesthetic, but get rid of the orca logo in favor of a modernized "stick-in-the-rink" design. The home jersey is also a modernized version of their original jerseys, featuring a break in the arm striping forming a 'V' for Vancouver. The Johnny Canuck V logo adorns the shoulders of the home and road jerseys. The alternate jersey is the last of the Canucks' "spaghetti skate" jerseys in yellow, and modernized to fit the Adizero template. Another V' adorns the jersey, this time on the shoulders.

 

What do you think?

Digging the Canucks, but shouldn't the front hem be straight?

Nope, the hem stripes are curved both on the front and the back. However, the curve of the rear stripes is far more pronounced.

The road jersey looks a little busy, but I love the direction you’re going in. More or less ideal look for me.

Well, now I know.

Yeah, the hem stripes are curved on the Adidas jerseys, something I don't mind. Here's the next team, the Avs.

The Avs nearly nailed their Adidas redesigned, with simplified, modernized versions of their original jerseys. I think they both could use a slight touchup, by adding another color to the mix, just to keep the color balance. The alternate is where it gets different, with a predominately blue jersey featuring mostly white striping. The striping on the shoulders forms a mountain, albeit more subtle than that of the home and away jerseys, and the hem striping is toned down just a little to draw more attention to the arms.

 

What do you think?

Always enjoy seeing your work!

 

Canucks look awesome, I'm glad you got rid of the orca and I love the new striping pattern.

 

Avs are good as well, especially that alternate jersey, but I would've maybe liked to see a bit more of a change to the primary uniforms.

 

No other complaints, can't wait to see the rest!

Thanks for the kind words, guys! I didn't change the home and road that drastically because the Avs almost nailed it with the Adidas jersey designs.

 

Next up, here's the Wild.

I really like the Wild's new chest stripe on the home jersey, but I just wish it went all the way around, and was a little less bland. I tried to incorporate it on the away jersey, but the red and green in such close proximity in such low density. The alternate jersey is essentially a recolored version of the road jersey, with shoulder yokes.

Thanks for the kind words! Next up are the Isles.

The home goes back to the jerseys worn during the Islanders dynasty era, when the team was at its finest. The away is the first primary jersey in team history to utilize a shoulder yoke, and a modern one at that. The alternate uses the teal from the Isles' Fisherman era, but stops short of diving all the way in with the fishsticks logo and all.

 

Overall, this one's a mesh of eras that I'm pretty happy with. What are your thoughts?

Those Avs jerseys are actually perfection! Love what you did with the numbers.

I really like the teal jersey for the Islanders. You took a blight on their history and turned it into a positive. Their black jerseys have been garbage and an orange would have been too similar to the Oilers.

Completely agree with @G-tron, the teal works very well and fixes everything wrong with the fisherman. The home and away are both great as well, they would be in the top 10 if they adopted that set.

Thanks for the kind words! Here's my take on the Preds.

The Preds were headed in the right direction with their Adidas redesign, but they definitely oversimplified. I add some space inbetween the waist stripes, as well as thickening the top ones out. A shoulder yoke is added to the home, as well, as more color to the away yoke. The alternate I'm on the fence about. I was inspired by the fangs in the logo, but I also wanted to go with the checkerboard pattern. All in all, the fangs looked better, so they're in the final product.

Nashville has too many inconsistencies in the white/blue/yellow striping on the hem, shoulders, arms and numbers. Make those consistent, and its a good set.

I think Nashville has too much going on, in the shoulder area. Too many colors, and the pick logo gets lost, on the homes.

 

Overall, I'd say the home is a lateral move, and the away is a downgrade.

 

Throw a pick on the other side, and make the front of the collar yellow, and you're solid, for the home.

 

On the alternate, which is pretty solid, I would recommend dropping the pick. If you really want a logo there, maybe go with the old skull.
