NHL Adidas concept: St.Louis Blues

Hi everyone, Alan here for another post here at AJH HJA. This week is the St.Louis Blues but first I got things to tell.

Plans for this year Playoff Pickz
This year Playoff Pickz will be like last year it'll have both my picks and concepts but unlike last year that had fan request concepts this one will feature my other concept designs that didn't make the cut to be part of my NHL Adidas concept series, so keep an eye out for it.

Quad City Mallards no more
Last Tuesday there was news that the Quad City Mallards one of minor hockey league team with a strong brand will cease operations following the end of the current 2017-18 season. The Owner announced it along with giving the ECHL the info about their decision to withdraw their membership. This is a sad news to me because I believe that the Mallards would be one of those teams from the CeHL that could last long, but I was wrong.

St.John NL returns to the minors
ECHL lost one team but gains one as St.John will get a ECHL team over an year and half since losing their AHL team. What name they will be called is unknown but I'm hoping they'll be called the Ice Caps again that's a cool name but if not I hope they won't be called the Fog Devils that a terrible name. I think maybe they can be take the Mallards place as a minor hockey league team with a strong brand, I know I'm pushing it but hey I can dream about.

Well rants done on to the Blues concept.

The colors are blue, gold, and lighter shade of blue. Simple stripes on arms, hem, socks, and yoke with a different shape. Standard block on for the nameplate, the numbers are the same with two thin trims. The team’s main logo is the same as they were but different colors, on the dark jersey is the light blue, while the white jersey is the blue.

NHL Adidas concept: San Jose Sharks

Taking one of Reebok's cookie cutter template arm stripe, put some stripes inside of it. The main logo is the team’s no stick shark secondary logo followed by the team’s old shark fin logo for the shoulders. Standard block for the nameplate, and SJ’s old font (1998-2007) for the numbers.

The arms are just like the team’s current set, but the hem is slanted to go with the main logo. Brought back the robo penguin logo as shoulder patch.

NHL Adidas concept: Philadelphia Flyers

Hi everyone Alan here for another Saturday post here at AJH HJA! Before we get to this week NHL Adidas concept I got some quick rants I got to get it off of my chest, so here we go.

No Gold for Canada!
The Olympics are coming to an end tomorrow and our nations hockey came out with no gold, just bronze for the men's, and silver for the women's. But one thing that positive about this is at least we don't have to see them wearing gold metal in their horrible jerseys!

Stadium Series disaster
The Stadium Series between the Washington Capitals, and the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the team's uniforms for that event are very much a big let down. Let just say that white pants in ice hockey don't mix, period!

Trade Deadline
So many big ups, and downs that could happen this Monday so my pick on who's the winner and the loser. Winners: San Jose, Winnipeg, and Boston. Losers: New York Islanders, New York Rangers, and St.Louis.

Well that's my rant, now on to this week's concept.

Simple design but it’s slanted not curve, add only two stripes on the hem. The collar featured Pennsylvania keystone symbol. Both numbers and nameplate are standard block with trim. Lastly add stripes on the pants.

NHL Adidas concept: Ottawa Senators

The stripes are simple but with laurel leaves and a circle in the middle in gold. The main logo is the team’s updated and unused alternate logo that I just can’t past on, along with the peace tower maple leaf combo logo that was on the Sens old black alternate jersey from 2000 to 2007 as both shoulder patch, and helmet. Rounded form font for the name plate, the Sens old number font from their classic red wavy jersey that began in 1997 to a sad end in 2007 (after the 2007 Stanley Cup finals loss) to fit this concept.

Saturday, 10 February 2018

NHL Adidas concept: New York Rangers

The stripes on the dark jersey is based on the team’s old style from 1978 to 1997 with the collar having more white and little red on it. The white is the team’s current white but the yoke stripes is curved and the collar is red with white trim. The front word mark logo and the numbers is J-Log Rebellion Sans Small Caps with the Rangers drop shadow treatment, while the nameplate is their current font and vertical arched. Lastly the “NYR” logo on the helmet.

Saturday, 3 February 2018

NHL Adidas concept: New York Islanders

Both jerseys are in classic form like their current set, but both arms and hem stripes are given wave style stripes. Standard block for the nameplate, and the Islanders previous black alternate font for the numbers with trim. The “NY” logo for the helmet, and the shoulder patch is made by me it’s a pentagon shape to represent the team’s Stanley Cup appearance, follow by 4 wavy lines inside the pentagon represent you guess it, the 4 Stanley Cups that the team won.

Saturday, 27 January 2018

NHL Adidas concept: New Jersey Devils

Just like as their classic set from 1992 to 2017 but with tweaks and additions. Stripes on both arms and hem are curved. Add stripes on the cuffs and trim on the yokes for good measure. Made the numbers and nameplate trim thick to be seen more. Added stripes on side of the pants to finish this concept.

Saturday, 20 January 2018

NHL Adidas concept: Nashville Predators

Simple stripes on the arms, and hem with checker patterns including checker patterns stripe on both the socks and pants as well. Using the team’s current fonts on both nameplates, and numbers.

NHL Adidas concept: Minnesota Wild

Happy New Year everyone, Alan here for the first post of 2018 here at AJH HJA. Quick rant my thought on this year All-Stars jerseys. The design had everything going but no hem what's worse the Adidas version got those three stripes on the sides while the Fanatics version doesn't, which makes the jerseys look too plain to my taste. My jersey collection rate: Buy it at discount price.
Well quick rant done time for more of my NHL Adidas concept, this week the Minnesota Wild.

Stripes on the dark jersey is simple on both arms, hem, and yoke, while the stripes on the white jersey has more red. On the moon within the main logo is recolored from gold to white. The circle logo is use for the shoulders and on the helmet.

Jersey Review: North Pole Nicks Jersey 2.0.

Ho, ho, ho everyone Alan here at AJH HJA. Today on this Christmas day is not a concept but a jersey review. You may know I did a review of the North Pole Nicks Jersey made by Geeky Jerseys (formerly know as Rink Gear) well here's this link to refresh your mind. Now this year the fine folks from decide to give the jersey an update to me it's a long over due, so let's not waste time and get to the review.

Up points: A very nice mixture of red, and dark red with a touch of both white and silver. Checkerboard patterns stripes gives that the snowflake stripes an eye popper look. The nameplates and the numbers are thinner then their previous jersey, witch it's a good move. Both the main and shoulder logos are a nice upgrade.

Down points: Both the letters and the numbers lack trims.

Overall: Great update that is better then the old one!

My Jersey Collection Rate: Get the jersey when it up for sell!

Well that's my review of North Pole Nicks Jersey 2.0. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkahs, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Decemberween, Happy whatever Holiday you're celebrate. Until then, later.
