NHL City Heritage Alternates (Washington up 6/23)

Recommended Posts

Next up are the Detroit Red Wings, in the style of the Cougars and Falcons, their previous identities.

The chest stripe and arm stripes come from the Cougars, while the yellow in the hanger effect comes from the Falcons.

I love how you combined eras here. I'm not really a huge fan of the modern D but it looks really good with the chest stripe.

I think if you swap the modern D (stadium Series) got the fauxback D (Winter Classic), you’d have you self a real winner. As is, it’s really good, but make that swap and it’s suddenly great. The modern one doesn’t real fit the feel of a “Heritage Alternate”

Great idea. Original post has been updated.

Next up is definitely a weird one, the Edmonton Oilers!

Inspired by the old Edmonton Eskimos (hockey, not football), A simplified Oilers striping pattern becomes a sash, with the rest of the jersey being traditional.

What do you think? C&C welcome.

Bringing this back once again, this time with the Panthers!

The sleeve-length stripes come from the ECHL's Miami Matadors, and the actual striping is derived from their original edge sets.

The Panthers' jersey looks pretty good...it doesn't need to flag motif on the torso though.  I'd put the sun logo on the pants or something, instead of the cat again.

Looking to start posting a jersey per day until the series is done now.

 

Next up are the LA Kings, inspired by the Los Angeles Monarchs of the WHL. They had a simple striping pattern, which I applied to the concept here. The base brings back the Forum Blue, as well as the old crown logo. A hanger effect in the collar is based off the city's flag.

I'm back, and ready to actually continue posting a series for once on these boards.

 

Next up are the Minnesota Wild, in the style of the St. Paul Saints, a historic team that played in the CHL and AHA from 1925-42.

The striping is inspired by their barberpole jerseys, but trimmed down to the traditional hockey jersey style.

Continuing on, Next up are the Montréal Canadiens. Even though the Montreal Wanderers were considered their rivals back in the day, I decided to model the Habs' jersey based on them anyway, as a callback to the rich history of hockey in the city.

Next up are the Nashville Predators, in the style of the Nashville Dixie Flyers. This concept was done before the winter classic unis (which had the same inspiration) were unveiled, so any similarities are coincidential.

Up next are the New Jersey Devils, inspired by the old Newark Bulldogs. Their jerseys were pretty much the black and white Blackhawks jerseys, so I changed it to black and red, and simplified the whole thing, to clean up the look.

Goddamn I love hockey and hockey concepts! These are exceptional clean and well thought out. The presentation too is great - great work!

Next up are the New York Islanders in the style of the Brooklyn Americans. The jersey uses a full-length yoke, with a small tribute the the fisherman jerseys on the cuffs (because why not).

I dream about the Rangers donning the Golden Blades jersey.

Of course, they can also don the Americans jersey as well.

The Rangers jersey is actually not modeled after either of those teams, but a more obscure one.

 

Next up are the New York Rangers, inspired by the old Manhattan Arrows. I decided to model after the arrows since MSG is located in Manhattan. The logo is the team's initials, in an arch, similar to the M on the Arrows' jerseys.
