Heritage NHL Uniforms by HawkeyHouse

Chicago Blackhawks: I got the idea for the design from their old jerseys from the 1937-1939 seasons. But instead of making it look like the Ottawa Senators old uniforms, I kept the same idea they have now from the Home and Road jerseys.

Vancouver Canucks: Finding a good idea for the Canucks took me a while. I eventually went with the 'V' design they had from 1978-1985, but swapped the colors with their current ones and added a "heritage white" and used their original logo.

Philadelphia Flyers: This concept comes from the Philadelphia Quakers, a team that existed in 1930. I got rid of the shoulder color that the Quakers jersey had and just made stripes on the arms.

Boston Bruins: For the Bruins I went with a combination of uniforms. I went back and fixed the original concept and went with the designs from 1939-1955. They had a steady look and it is much more vintage than the original.

Colorado Avalanche: This design was a combination of the Colorado Rockies uniforms, and the Quebec Nordiques uniforms.

Detroit Red Wings: I had a lot of trouble trying to think of something to do for the Red Wings. Their uniforms are so simple, yet so cool I had trouble trying to tweak them. So I just made a variation of their Winter Classic uniforms.

Washington Capitals: I looked back at the Capitals uniforms from 1974-1995 and made my own variation of the design. I made it look more modern like their current uniforms and used blue as the main color.

Pittsburgh Penguins: This concept is a combination of their jerseys from 1977-1981. Since the team is in love with putting blue into their alternative and winter classic uniforms, I did the same, put also put in their old gold color.

Carolina Hurricanes: This is a simplification of the Hartford Whalers and Carolina Hurricanes uniforms.

New Jersey Devils: For the Devils I looked back at their 1982-1992 uniforms and added the green back into the design. Its not a drastic change from the teams identity.

New York Rangers: The Rangers concept comes from an older New York team named the Americans. I simplified the Americans home jersey for the Rangers.

New York Isladners: This is the only uniform where I couldn't find anything from the past to make a heritage look. So what I did was looked at old uniforms and heritage concepts and made my own.

Ottawa Senators: For the Senators I looked at their 1917-1921 uniforms. You know, the one with a lot of stripes? It made it look neat and used an older Senators logo.

Buffalo Sabres: I decided to keep the trend and made a similar uniform to the Senators concept, but added some Sabre'esque features to it.

Toronto Maple Leafs: This was a fun jersey to created. I ended up using the teams away uniform from 1934 and did some "modernifications" to it.

Montreal Canadiens: Another fun jersey to create, I kept it simple and used the design they had from 1917-1919 and made it a Road uniform. I kept simple solid stripes and used some "heritage" looking colors.

Los Angeles Kings: For the Kings uniform, I decided to combine their uniforms from 1967-1988 and keep the old purple and yellow colors.

Anaheim Ducks: The Ducks uniform is a combination of the Mighty Ducks design and their current design.

Dallas Stars: This was an earlier concept I had, the idea for it was an enlarged star that laid over the uniform.

Minnesota Wild: I made this matchup for this very reason, I used the North Stars design and made it the Wilds.

St.Louis Blues: A throwback to the designs from 1973-1984, but made the stripes a bit more simplified.

Columbus Blue Jackets: With the Blue Jackets, I looked at the Cleveland Barons uniforms from 1976-1978.

5515280418_b9283f31fa_b.jpg

San Jose Sharks: For the Sharks, I went and looked at the California Seals after I took a few suggestions from the community. I used the Sharks colors and the original Seals jersey design. I also got rid of the black.

Phoenix Coyotes: For the Coyotes, I looked at the Winnipeg Jets uniforms from 1979-90 and used the colors of the Coyotes to get a cool design.

Tampa Bay Lightning: The Lightning's concept is a combination, inspiration and concept I had for the Lightning. Putting together new and old to try to get a blend of the two.

Florida Panthers: Florida has one of the weirdest uniforms in the history of the NHL, I used the away uniforms from 1993-2007 to get the design.

Nashville Predators: The Predators concept is a combination of all their uniforms and I attempted to make it look simple and nice.

Atlanta Thrashers: The Trashers concept has similar striping to the Atlanta Flames, as well as a similar logo.

Calgary Flames: For the Flames I used the jersey that Calgary Cowboys had, and used the colors of the Flames.

Edmonton Oilers: Last but not least, the Oilers concept is an alteration of the teams Road uniforms from 1979-1997.

Great effort here.

One thing I'd like to see is with the Sharks maybe go back to the Golden Seal days.

Thanks. I feel like the Seal's design will look to similar to other designs I made. It was difficult trying to get something I liked for the Sharks, and I'm still not pleased with what I posted.

I see your signature is a Calgary Flame, do you like the attempt of mine?

My favorite is the Canucks.

However, the Panthers and Thrashers are not the only ones you should start over on. I would redo Nashville as well.

Panthers, Thrashers and Predators are the last ones I did too, I couldn't think of ANYTHING. Any suggestions?

Panthers: Try dropping the long arm stripes for horizontal stripes. Keep the colors and it doesn't have to be like their alternate jersey. I would do something with alot of red and yellow with thin navy trims. Just my 0,02$.

Thrashers: All those little triangles don't make the jersey more vintage. I like the combo of maroon and navy together but I think there should be more maroon. I would even try using vintage white for fun. I know it sounds like a bad idea, but it can be executed well.

Predators: How about a simplified logo without all of the silver reflections? I designed something like that a long time ago. I liked the final result. Also, I would do a yellow jersey with any kind of throwback style striping, with current colors.

Okay thanks, those do help. I'll try to work those up. I will let you know when Im finished with them.

These look pretty good. You said you had trouble coming up with an inspiration for the Islanders. May I recommend the old Long Island Ducks from the 60s?

I attempted a design along the lines of the Long Island Ducks. If this jersey is what your thinking of, I'm personally not a fan of the weird duck beak. I might have another go at the Islanders though. Something might come up.

Good designs overall, but the blue seems a little out of place on the Pens jersey. I think it'd look a little better with the black, as a throwback to the 80's, but that's your call.

I used the blue and yellow to mix to mix the jerseys from 77-81.
