It also has been rumored that the Coyotes will wear their original uniform next season as a throwback. I feel like I am the only person that actually liked that uniform, but I am excited anyway. Also teams have been wearing their Stadium Series jerseys a second time at their home arena. I personally think this takes away from the novelty of the special edition jerseys, but I want to know what the HJC community thinks. Comment away!
There are also a pair of voting deadlines and a contest going on. Here's what you'll need to know, and I can't wait to see the rest of the entries. Also, make sure to check out the details of the HJC Meet Up this summer! It looks like it should be a lot of fun.

Here are today's entries:
Tom V. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 8/10 - The gray trim adds a lot to this concept. What a creative idea to start today's post.
Tyler F. - Harvard Concept
Score: 6/10 - Many of the stripes are not straight, which detracts from the design. Also, the collars aren't colored. I think this concept has potential, but as Ryan says, make sure to triple check your design,
Christian L. - Dallas Stars Throwback Alternate Concept
Score: 7/10 - Very creative concept! I love digging to find a concept's inspiration.
Bastian - Finland Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - Niemi left the Blackhawks after winning the cup in 2010. That hurt! I would change the name on the jerseys that's all.
Bastian - Czech Republic Concpet
Score: 7.5/10 - My only concern is that the checkers will get lost on the ice. The Predators tried a similar pattern, and it looked almost like solid striping. I like the idea nonetheless.
Phil B. - Tampa Bay Lightning Alternate Concept
Score: 8/10 - Does anyone know why the Lightning used the hatching on the armpit? I feel as if that would always be hidden...
Ryan H. - Spokane Chiefs Alternate Concept
Score: 8.5/10 - This is a great looking concept! This would also make a good looking home uniform.
Stephen T. - Eisbären Berlin Concept
Score: 7/10 - Clean + Simple = Awesome concept. It is a touch hard to see the "Berlin" on the blue jersey. I think it would look good in white.
Stephen T. - Switzerland Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - I was skeptical about the black number outline at first, but it has grown on me and I like what Stephen has here.
S2dio - Las Vegas Wranglers Concept
Score: 8/10 - Do the Wranglers really have to wait until 2018 to use these uniforms?
Jake88 - Winnipeg Jets Concept
Score: 9/10 - COTW Nomination! Great work Jake!
That's all for this week! Get your contest entries in, and as always, don't forget to vote!
