2013-2014 NHL Uniform & Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

Going to put two whole dollars that the IceCaps' new jersey came from the design process in Winnipeg, either for the Jets' primaries or the rumoured alternate.

It looks good under the shoulders, but the grey yoke just kills it. Is that black in the stripes or navy?

I like everything about it besides the logo. Put a proper logo on the front and you've got a really classy, unique look.

Have we ever seen a minor-league affiliate release an idential jersey design before the parent club? Everyone was so sure that the Iowa Wild's white jersey was going to be Minnesota's new away. I just feel like it's pretty dumb of the parent club to have their affiliate release their jersey design before they do.

The IceCaps jersey and logo were designed by a local artist in St. John's who approached the club with his design, so it's doubtful that the Jets will pick it up. Personally, I think it's one of the best overall designs in North American pro hockey in the past decade, if not more. Very well done.

I'll be honest, I like everything about it. Well-done square yoke with stripes, unique logo (which is nice for an AHL team), unique look (which is rare for an AHL team), standard-style striping (it's on all the sleeves AND the hemline! and it's identical! crazy!), nice visible and legible font, I even like the Nova Scotia flag.

The single improvement they could have, and this is subjective, is a dark stripe between the silver and the white stripes on the yoke. But that might be too Rangers-like, and the Bruins pull off gold next to a white stripe, so why not?

There's nothing "OMG AMAZING" about it...but there is nothing wrong with that jersey, and that's a good thing.

I really like parts of it. I wished the shoulders had the same design as the sleeves, socks, or bottom of the jersey

Newfoundland!

I think the jersey's nice also. Injecting grey breaks up the drabness of the double blue of their regular set.

Apparently a team can put a flag on a jersey an not look like utter crap (Calgary).

That striping pattern with the gray background definitely has a Detroit Lions feel to it.

The logo is one of the better logos in the minor ranks.

A white flag on a light grey base looks better than a blue flag on a red base.

That sponsor patch got me asking... is Mary Brown's any good?

Sorry! Ignorant American! I really should have checked

I wish it either had a round yoke, or the white border over the shoulder side of the square yoke as well. I think it looks incomplete to have that white border on the front and back, but navy and gray touching on the shoulder.

It's a fairly traditional shoulder treatment imo.

It would've been best without a shoulder yoke. Just replace the yoke with more navy blue.

The Jets logo looks so much better on a shoulder.

I really like the crest. What's the building supposed to be?

I'm guessing it's this one:

I think the Jets logo needs something. It's so bland (nearly O6 "bland") for a relatively new team.

That doesn't mean the Jets can't use it in a near future ;) I think it would look great with the Jets Logo on it ! Just add a matching white and here's a complete, beautiful new look for Winnipeg !

She is certainly good as I and many other guys will attest too.

Oh and her fried chicken isn't bad either.
