Pittsburgh Penguins

I based this Penguins Reverse Retro concept off of the Pittsburgh Pirates 1925-28 jerseys, but I could have chosen any of the three jerseys that NHL team wore.  I decided to use yellow pants mostly as an experiment, and also because I thought it might add to the vintage look.

The Canadiens jersey is the definition of a reverse retro jersey! The pants seem out of place, and could use modernizing but I get that it's supposed to be like that. Nice job so far!

Thanks!  Here's how it looks with blue equipment...

Arizona Coyotes

The latest concept in this series is a Coyotes jersey based off the 1974-75 Phoenix Roadrunners.  I chose "Desert Sand" as the base colour, and went with the logos from the Coyotes Kachina set.  You'll notice the sock stripes don't match the jersey, they didn't on the Roadrunners original white jersey either.

San Jose Sharks

I've seen many Sharks concepts based off of the California Golden Seals, this here is my version.  As you can see, I chose white as the base colour (with teal and black stripes), and used the Sharks original logo as the front crest.  The striping pattern follows the Golden Seals 1974-76 jerseys as accurately as I could.

Buffalo Sabres

I'd love to see the Sabres try another yellow jersey, here is one based off of the old Buffalo Bisons of the AHL.  I went with white numbers to better match the Bisons' jerseys, but I'm now thinking blue numbers would have been the better option.

Next up is a Wild concept based off of the Minnesota Fighting Saints.  I chose "wheat" as the base jersey colour since the Wild have never had a wheat jersey before, but went with a green helmet since a wheat helmet wouldn't look as good (in my opinion).

Shut up and take my money.

Mmmm, idk. The white numbers, at least in this mockup don't look bad.

The Pens / Pirates RR!
The Flyers / Quakers RR!

Still think the NHL needs to play on that concept! Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia, State rivals, Division rivals and the fact that the two Cities share a unique Hockey history with the Pittsburgh Pirates Hockey Club moving to Philadelphia and becoming the Quakers

Absolutely LOVE the Sharks RR! they really need to look into using this concept

Did you try something with the following years WHA Roadrunners style with the character inside the Arizona state outline?  or would that look too cluttered?

Good idea!  I don't think it looks too cluttered.

Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks could really use green jersey in their arsenal, so I did a Reverse Retro of the Vancouver Millionaires' jersey in green and navy.  It was either going to be this or a WHL Canucks inspired concept.

Oooooooooooh. That’s nice.

New York Rangers

This concept was especially enjoyable to make, a Rangers Reverse Retro design in the style of the New York Americans' 1926-27 jersey (which happens to be the same year the Rangers debuted).  I tried to match the name and number fonts to those on the aforementioned Americans jersey, and I added a star to the tan pants as an experimental idea.

Can I see the normal version of this jersey? I'll glad wear it.
