Calgary Inferno concept 1

Hello, Alan here for another Saturday post here at AJH HJA. taking a break from fan request post for the time being until I get more done (if I get to them ha ha ha) anyway this one is a concept base on a Canadian Women's Hockey League team known as the Calgary Inferno. Believe it or not, I did this concept for the HJC's the season tournament sadly my concept got dead last, why? Simply because I send the wrong set to the contest witch the reason why it got a dead last result.

So here's the set.
You can say the dark it's the Flames old red pre-edge jersey but the gold and black switch roles. Nothing to say too much about the white jersey just the Flames old pre-edge with big red stripe with thick gold stripe, and black thin stripe on both the arms, and hem. Recoloured the team's logo to fit with the jerseys, gold logo on the red, and red on the white. Fonts on the nameplate are the LA Kings current letter font, while the numbers are the J-Log razor edge sans small caps with trims.

Well, that's all I got for this week, come back here next week for my real Inferno concept. Til then, later.

Fan Request: Washington Capitals part 1

Hi everyone, Alan here for another fan request post here at AJH HJA. This is part 1 of the Washington Capitals fan request. On this one it's different format, he requested sets that featured the team's current fonts on the numbers and nameplate with two trims instead of one, and other the Caps old fonts from 1995 to 2007. On one side all Reebok, on the other Adidas.

  Not much to explain but on the dark jerseys if you look very closely to the numbers there is silver in between the blue and white.

Now on this one it's the Caps blue, gold, and black era featuring jerseys designs from 1995 to 2000 without the "CAPITALS" word mark inside the hem stripe.
Unlike the actual jerseys the Caps wore I made the arm stripes look the same, if you check out NHLUniforms.com one arm stripe is closer to the cuffs, the other side the stripes further itself away from the cuffs. If you can see the gold trim in between the white number, and black trim without a close up, more power to you.

Well that's covers it see you all next week for part 2, later.

Fan Request post: Nashville Predators part 1

Hi, Alan here for another week here at AJH HJA. It's still June, and this week will be another "Fan Request" by you guess it John O. and like all of his request, it's classic pre-Edge design on a Reebok template as usually. This week is the Nashville Predators.
Same design as the Preds first set from the beginning in a Reebok form including the infamous "Mustard" colour jersey. with two nice logos that this jersey had that I wish they use on the rest of the jerseys the Preds had. The only change he requested was the fonts on both nameplates, and the numbers, the numbers are the Preds current font, while the nameplate is  J-Log Razor Edge Sans Small Caps.

Somewhat Bonus
Same thing but in Adidas form nothing to explain on this one.

Well, that's this week, be here next week for another fan request post. Til then, later.

NHL Adidas Concept Extra: Winnipeg Jets

Howdy everyone, Alan here for the last NHL Adidas concept extra here at AJH HJA. This week is the Winnipeg Jets.

But before we get to them I would like to congratulate the Washington Capitals on winning their "first" ever Stanley Cup in 5 games! (Yeah let that one sink in.) Also to Alexander Ovechkin winning the Conn Smythe as playoff MVP.

I would also like to give a congratulation to the Vegas Golden Knights on a grand first season they put this year, really gave everyone a surprise they'll never forget.

Now that out of the way on to the Jets.
As you can see it's the same jersey design but a different logo. The Jets current jet inside the logo is replaced by a jet with a "W" on it made by me.
Well nothing much to say any more about it, see you all next week.

2018 AJH HJA NHL Playoffs Pickz: Round 3 review, NHL Adidas concept extra, and the Stanley Cup pick.

Hello, hello everyone. Alan here for my last post of the 2018 NHL Playoff Pickz here at AJH HJA.

Round 3 review.

Western Conference
Vegas (P1) vs. Winnipeg (C2)
My pick: Vegas in 5 games
Result: Vegas in 5
My thought: Well I kinda had the feeling that the Jets ran out of fuel in this round.

Eastern Conference
Tampa Bay (A1) vs. Washington (M1)
My pick: Bolts in 6 games
Result: Caps in 7 games
My thought: The Lightning had one job in game six yet they choke it pretty bad.

Now it's time for my NHL Adidas concept extra. This one is a team that played bad enough to get themselves this year number 1 pick in the NHL Draft. It's the Buffalo Sabres.
This concept feature more white for both home, and road instead of gold. I felt like it didn't fit well with the Sabres at all. So I ended up making a better set for the Sabres.

Well, everyone, this Monday is game 1 of this year Stanley Cup finals. From the east making their first cup appearance since 1998, it's Washington Capitals. Over at the west, the team that is in their very first year, the Vegas Golden Knights. Who will win their first ever Stanley Cup?
My Pick: Even though Caps are hungry for the Cup, but with a team that features 2nd, and some 3rd line players earned their right spots on the team. This one is a tough call, I'm going with the Golden Knights in 6 games.

Well, that's it, we went through 3 rounds of crazy over the top matchups, lots of surprises, unexpected wins, and losses, to even bad calls from the refs. I hope you all enjoy this year playoffs, including hoping for a good Stanley Cup finals. Until then, later.

NHL Adidas Concept Extra: San Jose Sharks

Hi everyone, Alan here for another NHL Adidas concept extra here at AJH HJA. This one is short, and sweet because it's the same jersey design but different. This week is the San Jose Sharks.
I originally had the team's main logo for the front until I saw the team's new secondary logos that I admitted loved them more then the team current main logo.

So that's this week, see you all next week, til then later.

2018 AJH HJA NHL Playoffs Pickz: Round 2 review, NHL Adidas concept extra, and round 3 picks.

Hi all, Alan here for another 2018 NHL Playoff Pickz post here at AJH HJA. Let's get to the round 2 review.

Western Conference

Nashville (C1) vs. Winnipeg (C2)
My pick: Preds in 6 games
Result: Jets in 7 games
My thought: I expected the Jets ran out of fuel but instead it's the Preds that ran out of fuel.

Vegas (P1) vs. San Jose (P3)
My pick: Vegas in 6 games
Result: Vegas in 6 games
My thought: I rolled the dices and got this series right.

Eastern Conference

Tampa Bay (A1) vs. Boston (A2)
My pick: Bolts in 7 games
Result: Bolts in 5 games
My thought: Tampa was so good, they made the Bruins bit their tongues. Well just Brad.

Washington (M1) vs. Pittsburgh (M2)
My pick: Pens in 6 games
Result: Caps in 6 games
My thought: OK I didn't really thought that the Caps had a chance to beat the Pens, but they did it and they surprised me pretty good.

Now it's time for you guess it, another NHL Adidas concept extra. This time the Carolina Hurricanes.
I gave the the warning flag stripes the same treatment as what the team did with their current dark jersey. The dark jersey got more black on it but kinda miss the mark on the white jersey so this set didn't make the cut.

Now time for my round 3 picks.

Western Conference

Vegas (P1) vs. Winnipeg (C2)

My pick: Vegas in 5 games

Eastern Conference

Tampa Bay (A1) vs. Washington (M1)

NHL Adidas Concept Extra: Anaheim Ducks

Hello everyone, Alan here for a special edition here at AJH HJA. Well not exactly special because I've been posting some of my Adidas concept extra on my Playoff Pickz but unlike those that featuring teams that didn't make it to this year playoffs, this one featured teams that did made it to the playoffs but pretty much at this point ether eliminated or still on the hunt for the Cup.

This week is the team that got swept in the first round by the Sharks, it's the Anaheim Ducks.
Believe or not this was my first idea put together, the design is based on the team's old 3rd/4th jersey they wore from 1997 to 1999. Then later I put together a better look for this team. In the end this concept is now part of the NHL Adidas concept extra series.

Well this one done on to next post, til then later.

NHL Adidas concept: Winnipeg Jets

Hi everyone, Alan here for the final week of my "NHL Adidas series" and what better way to finish it off with my favorite team the Winnipeg Jets!
The design is based on the team’s WHA days with modified yoke. Removed the maple leaf off the logo and recolor it for both front of the jersey and on the shoulder. The helmet logo is made by me a different form jet with a “W” on top of it. Lastly, I kept the team’s current font to make this concept complete.

HJC Feedback

Well this series is in the books, yes there were scores from 7 to close to 5 from HJC, to a shocking first COTW win since May 2013. In the end, this was a ride I'll never forget, I went through busy schedules, to fan requests, to the passing of my grandmother, but I did it.

That's all for now, see you next week for my NHL Adidas concept extra! Until then, later.

Western Conference

Nashville (C1) vs. Colorado (WC2)
My Pick: Preds in 4 games
The result: Preds in 6 games
My thought: I thought that this series was going to be a sweeper, but the Avalanche had other ideas.

Winnipeg (C2) vs. Minnesota (C3)
My Pick: Jets in 7 games
The result: Jets in 5 games
My thought: The Wild didn't play at all to make this series good, but good for the Jets to have their first playoffs series win in 31 years!

Vegas (P1) vs. LA (WC1)
My Pick: G-Knights in 6 games
The result: G-Knights in 4 games
My thought: I knew Vegas would beat the Kings but a sweeper? I did not see that coming!

Anaheim (P2) vs. San Jose (P3)
My Pick: Ducks in 6 games
The result: Sharks in 4 games
My thought: Sharks beat the Ducks? In 4 games? What is going on here?

Eastern Conference

Tampa Bay (A1) vs. New Jersey (WC2)
My Pick: Bolts in 5 games
The result: Bolts in 5 games
My thought: Well got this one right!

Boston (A2) vs. Toronto (A3)
My Pick: Bruins in 6 games
The result: Bruins in 7 games
My thought: Toronto choked but didn't choked sooner.

Washington (M1) vs. Columbus (WC1)
My Pick: Caps in 7 games
The result: Caps in 6 games
My thought: This was a good series, sadly it only ended in 6 games.

Pittsburgh (M2) vs. Philadelphia (M3)
My Pick: Flyers in 7 games
The result: Pens in 6 games
My thought: Yeah I thought the Flyers got this series at hand, guess not.

Now this post's NHL Adidas concept extra is another team that didn't make it to this years playoffs is the Montreal Canadiens.
Remember the dark jersey from my Habs Adidas concept? Believe or not this one was originally suppose to be the dark (home) jersey! Made the chest, and arms stripes white with blue trims. The reason I didn't go with this one because I felt like it made the jersey too bright to my taste so I scrap this one and use the classic one.

Well it's time for my round 2 picks.

Western Conference

My pick: Preds in 6 games

Vegas (P1) vs. San Jose (P3)

NHL Adidas concept: Washington Capitals

Made thin arm stripes with stripes on the cuffs, and in between them stripes are three stars with a trim. Using the team’s current shoulder patch but on the dark jersey it’s recolored to fit with blue yoke. The colors are blue, and red. I kept the team’s current font for both nameplate and numbers.

Saturday, 14 April 2018

NHL Adidas concept: Vegas Golden Knights

Simple slanted stripes for both the arms, and hem. The only change I did to the team’s main logo is on the dark jersey replaced the black to steel grey on the shield behind the helmet. the nameplate is standard block with trim, while the numbers is J-Log razor edge sans small caps with two trims.

2018 AJH HJA NHL Playoffs Pickz

Hello everyone, Alan here for this year edition of the NHL Playoffs Pickz! This year was a close race to the playoffs spots, in the end 16 teams have earn their spots in this year playoffs but only one will become the 2018 Stanley Cup Champions.

Before my picks I got some rant to talk about, here's my surprises, disappointment, and really? Let's get this going.

My Surprise
Vegas Golden Knights: Well this is a team that everyone including me thought that they were going to end up just like any other new team entering their first season in the NHL, rock bottom! Somehow, someway they kinda jell pretty well, so well that they are 1st place in the Pacific division, this is a shocker to everyone nobody didn't expect them be this good, here's hope that this team can thrive in the desert area far better then what the Arizona Coyotes can do.

Chicago Blackhawks: The last time this team missed the playoffs was in 2007-08 season, so after 10 years winning three Stanley Cups they have missed this year playoffs. I wonder what's next for this team, will they bounce back next season, or will they tank?

My Disappointment
Edmonton Oilers: They came from being eliminated in the 2nd round of the 2017 NHL Playoffs, to missing this year playoffs. Well back to the drawing board this team again.

Montreal Canadiens: I got nothing to say a lot about this one, just they played bad.

My "Really?"
Ottawa Senators: So many dramas on this one that I don't know what to start it's too much mostly putting your top star through everything along with losing his son. Really Ottawa?

St.Louis Blues: You guys just can't make your minds up, you want to go to playoffs then win games, if not just tank for crying out load. Really Blues?

Now as I said from my previous posts I now will show you all my NHL Adidas concept series extra! This one is the team that will not go to the playoffs this year is the Edmonton Oilers.
The jersey design was classic but I felt it need a modern touch. The fonts I want to use was the Oilers old alternate jersey from 2001-07, but it kinda was too modern to my taste.

Alright everyone it's time for my pickz! I going to make this short and sweet, so here we go.

Western Conference

Nashville (C1) vs. Colorado (WC2)
My Pick: Preds in 4 games

Winnipeg (C2) vs. Minnesota (C3)
My Pick: Jets in 7 games

Vegas (P1) vs. LA (WC1)
My Pick: G-Knights in 6 games

Anaheim (P2) vs. San Jose (P3)
My Pick: Ducks in 6 games

Eastern Conference

Tampa Bay (A1) vs. New Jersey (WC2)
My Pick: Bolts in 5 games

Boston (A2) vs. Toronto (A3)
My Pick: Bruins in 6 games

Washington (M1) vs. Columbus (WC1)
My Pick: Caps in 7 games

Pittsburgh (M2) vs. Philadelphia (M3)
My Pick: Flyers in 7 games

Well everyone that's my picks see you all at my next post.

NHL Adidas concept: Vancouver Canucks

The main logo is the modern stick in the rink logo without the silver trim, using Johnny Canuck head above the “V” logo for the shoulders. Arms, and hem stripes are slanted into a V-shape including the shoulder yoke. The team’s current font is used on both nameplate and the numbers. Add thick trim around the numbers on the dark, while the white jersey got two thin trims but the nameplate on both jerseys does not. If you look closely at the collar on both jerseys has a “V” behind the NHL shield logo.

Saturday, 31 March 2018

NHL Adidas concept: Toronto Maple Leafs

Hi everyone, Alan here for another post here at AJH HJA. Nothing to rant here but I'm eyeing on the the NHL playoffs mostly the wild card that one is a close race, with next week being the final week of the 2017-18 season which means I got to get my playoff pickz put together and ready to go for a long haul this year.

Now with that out of the way here's this week NHL Adidas concept series.

Using the team’s current logo for the front of the jerseys also using the team secondary logo from their previous set for the shoulder. Three stripes on the arms, hem, yoke, socks, and even pants.

HJC Feedback

White bolt with silver trim and black background on the white jersey.

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's 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 it.

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.

Saturday, 3 March 2018

NHL Adidas concept: Pittsburgh Penguins

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.

Saturday, 24 February 2018

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.

Saturday, 17 February 2018

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.
