In other news, the NHL officially announced a new game in the Stadium Series, and as expected, it's between the Anaheim Ducks and the LA Kings at Dodger Stadium. I look forward to the problems I feel that they will have while setting up the ice.
Also, new writer Ricky will be taking over the Friday slot next week but until then, there will be no Friday post this week, but that doesn't mean that there's no voting! Get your votes in by Friday!

As opposed to yesterday, there's only ONE outdoor game concept today and it's for the newly announced Ducks-Kings game, so we'll get that one out of the way first.
Nashville Predators Concept - (David K.)
Iowa Wild - (Dylan W.)
New York Rangers Concept - (Justin N.)
Justin takes the modernized Rangers shield and removes all the silver to keep the color scheme just red, white, and blue. Bad move, I like that logo with all it's silver. It looks odd without it. I like that Justin keeps the striping on both jerseys similar but slightly different just like their current jerseys. I'd just add that silver back to the logo and maybe work it into the jerseys to fully modernize this teams identity. The drop shadowed numbers could probably be lost too. I'd also add TV numbers.
Ottawa Senators Concept - (Peter H.)
Calgary Flames Concept - (William F.)
William takes all the black out of the Flames' look, well, kind of. The black remains in the secondary horse logo which looks bad. If you want to keep the horse head you need to either get rid of the black in it or add black back into the jerseys. William clearly wants the Flames to go back to their bright, black-less days of the past and keeps the jerseys very simple just like they used to be. It bugs me how the hem stripe is very thin and the arm stripes are thick. I'd make them all thick. The yellow phantom yoke outline on the home is unnecessary. Also, TV numbers, you need them.
Rollerball Hockey Jersey Concept - (Will S.)
Will makes a jersey here inspired by the 1975 film, Rollerball. I've never seen the movie so I can't comment on the design choices, but by looking through images and previews for the movie, it resembles the jersey worn by the main character's team. Also, while researching, I discovered Will had sent in a Rollerball jersey back in September. and he took former writer Colin's advice and made the jersey less plain. It's better than his last attempt but It's really gone as far as I think it could go as a hockey jersey as far as making it more visually appealing while staying true to the source material.
