2013-2014 NHL Uniform & Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

The best thing about these throwbacks (besides their existence as the best jerseys in hockey) is that it hopefully will put to rest the speculation that they can't wear the old logos because of Disney.

The Samuelis own it all. There never was any issue.

Thank you, Jonas Hiller.

I came here to post that, that is beautiful.

Here's the back

And the other side

As an out of town Ducks fan, I hope that they are selling Mighty Ducks stuff online, at least the jerseys. If they don't I'll be disappointed and embarrassed that they missed out on a colossal opportunity.

I'm sure they will be, but if not, I'm sure they'll be on ebay eventually.

I hope so.

It might be just be the picture, but that doesn't look like jade on Hiller's mask.

Love that Hiller mask, it's a shame it'll be a one game wonder. Bonus points for not being too cluttered and Wild Wing! Maybe I'll bust out my Wild Wing jersey for the game too, even though I'll be at home lol.

HO. LY. :censored: . Oh :censored: yeah.

Now I'm torn as to who plays. Guy Hebert was my favorite Duck as a kid, and I'd be ecstatic to see his mask grace the ice with Victor Fasth. But the closest we'll get to the Wild Wing jersey on the ice with Hiller's helmet.... Man I don't know.

I don't know if I've ever looked forward to a game just because of the jerseys before, but I just want to see them.

Man, too bad about the logo on Wild Wing facing the wrong way. Great look, though!

they really should have switched the crest at least.... it's no biggie for wild wing to be catching with his right hand instead of his left, but the backwards facing sweater makes it weird.

still, amazing mask. i hope to see the hebert tribute instead though. that mask simply goes with that sweater in my head. like belfour's gold mask with the green star jersey, beezer's panther with the original florida sweaters, brodeur's mask over a devils jersey, and richter's liberty over the rangers. other masks just don't look right.

Hiller's mask is the coolest thing ever. I'm so excited to see these uniforms in action.

Flipping Wild Wing for Hiller actually makes a little sense, considering Jonas catches with his right hand, but yeah they should have tried to switch the logo.

There's a similar rumor that the Knox estate still owns the original Buffalo Sabres crest, and so the new ownership has to put silver outlines around everything so that it's a different logo. The first time I read this, my brain popped my skull open and walked away and I had to go chase it down and put it back.

Not sure if that would pass in court. It's still the same logo. You wouldn't take the Blackhawks' logo, put a silver outline on it, and say "Ha ha! Brand new logo! Suck it, Wirtz!"

Are the Ducks considered a classic franchise with great logos and the former best jersey in hockey anywhere other than Anaheim?

Question for those that love this - how old are you? Were the Ducks a team when you were a kid? Were you a fan of the movie?

I was about 9 when they started up. Loved the movies (atleast the 1st).

As cheesy or cartoony as the logo was, it was iconic. Someone who was not a hockey fan at all could look at it and say "Anaheim Mighty Ducks". That's an effective identity. And then they changed it.

The striping is pretty interesting on the mask too. I could see the Ducks creating an alternate that's sort of a mix between the current and past uniforms with past colors.

Lol why are we suddenly accepting of a horrible hockey design? Wild wing? Seriously...I know its a novelty, but its still silly. I don't care if its a one game wonder, don't bring it back. It's like a Canucks coming out dressed in the halloween V sweaters. Wtf, no!

I was 6 when I first seen D2 (which has the epic scene where they skate out for the third period in Mighty Ducks unis). As a kid who looooved Disney movies, the uniforms were epic to me. I remember seeing the Mighty Ducks cartoon then as well and having toys related to the cartoon.

The uniforms for me were beyond just representing the team but I also loved seeing the team play. I know anyone my age and many older and younger love the jerseys and logo. They aren't original 6 or anything but to me, they're iconic and though not the best, some of the greatest jerseys to grace the NHL.

Not from Anaheim, from a small town in Nova Scotia.

At the Flames game last night, they were randomly showing sneak peak videos of the new Flames third with the date 10/27. The few images they did show seemed to be consistent with what was leaked by EA.

Because the logo is far more acceptable as a mask design element than on a jersey.

Thank you -- I'm glad there's some sense being posted around here. The retro unis and colors are fine, in my opinion, as is the old logo, but Wild Wing is taking things too far. Ah, well.

Wild Wing is only on his mask. They're not wearing the Wild Wing jerseys.

An NHL goalie had Family Guy characters on his mask. That's much worse.

The first movie is 4 years older than I am and the team itself is 3 years older than I am. I've been a Ducks fan since I was young.
