We are now well into the new season and we might have some new people reading HJC now. If that is you first off, hello. Secondly, I suggest that you check out the ABOUT/CONTACT HJC page. I'd then take a look at the TEMPLATES page as that is where you can find everything to get started on making your own concepts. That goes for everyone as well. That page gets updated every month or so. Maybe there's something on there that you missed and could use?
I'd also like to direct everyone to the COTW/COTY rules. They have been posted since March, but I don't think everyone has seen them. You can see them by clicking HERE.
The COTW nominees are up! You can see them listed on the left side of the page. You can click that banner or go to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK page to see all of the entries. Voting Committee members can email their votes in until Thursday @ 11:59pm EST.
The Minnesota Winter Classic competition was the most popular competition HJC has ever had! A lot of the entries were really good as well and the voting reflects that. There was a strong push this weekend from all of the other concepts, but in the end WhiteLightning's college inspired concepts came out on top!Below are the complete results of the voting.If you don't understand the tie-breakers feel free to email me and I will explain them to you. The entries were so good that I will leave the gallery up for another day. You can have a second look at them HERE.
With the popularity of the Winter Classic comp, we now have the Heritage Classic Competition!Go check out the HERITAGE CLASSIC COMP page for all of the rules and details, or you can click the banner on the right. I look forward to seeing these entries as well!
Pittsburgh Penguins concept (by Jeremy)Jeremy has made a modification on the mid-90's 3rd jersey and he's Edge'd it. Looks like Jeremy could use a trip to the TEMPLATES page to get a cleaner template.
Pittsburgh Penguins concepts (by Stephen T.)It looks like the Penguins jerseys were popular last week. Here Stephen Edge's the 90's jersey and gives us an accompanying white version. This is one of those concepts that we've seen a couple of times before.
Dallas Stars concept (by Jeremy)Jeremy has brought back the unused North Stars jersey from 1987 and applied it to the Dallas Stars. I think it would be cool if the star in the logo had the same colour pattern as the arm and hem stripes.
Dallas Stars concept (by Spirit104)I like this Stars jersey, and I especially think that the striping works well for the Stars. The thing I would change is I would make the numbers white.
New York Rangers concept (by Jose)It looks like Jose has placed the Rangers' Winter Classic logo on one of the fake jerseys that have been for sale on the internet. Those fake jerseys are actually based on one of Jose's concepts that was posted a few months ago on HJC.
Ottawa Senators concepts (by WhiteLightning)We get some Sens concepts from out Winter Classic winner here. White gives us a road vintage white sweater to match the new Sens 3rd jersey. That looks cool and I wouldn't be surprised to see White use it again in the Heritage Classic Competition! The retro 3rd jersey with the new logo is also pretty good. This is solid and I give it a COTW nomination.
Columbus Blue Jackets concept (by Avi)Avi has tried to simplify the Jackets' 3rd jersey. He's removed the vintage white and the yokes. Then he added shoulder patches. I like this, but the only thing I'd change (and this is VERY minor) is the jersey cut. I'd go with the traditional cut (same as what the current 3rd jersey uses) as opposed to this long arms Reebok cut.
