Last Wednesday, Ryan broke the news that HJC would be hosting the Grand Rapid Griffins alternate jersey contest. A week later, we have seen a bunch of cool entries, and each one of those has an equal chance of being worn in an AHL game! We almost always have a contest going on, but there aren't many that end up in the winner being worn on the ice. My first concept on HJC was in the Colgate College competition, and I will most certainly enter this contest. Will you?
COTW July 28-Aug 3 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
HJC Open Final entries (due TONIGHT @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Grand Rapids Griffins Competition (ends August 31st)
Here's that expansion concept I mentioned...
Justin S. - CHL Expansion Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - There's a lot going on here, but there's a lot of good here as well. This is an awesome concept!
Mario A. - Detroit Red Wings Concept
Score: 6/10 - The creme doesn't mix well with white in this scenario. Some teams can get away with this, but Detroit has been red & white forever.
Mario A. - HJC Jersey Concept
Score: 8/10 - I know that I said this last time, but this is definitely Mario's best concept yet!
Phil B. - Buffalo Sabres Soccer Concept
Score: 7.5/10 - This is a really cool idea! I think that hockey jerseys translate better to soccer concepts than any other sport.
Phil B. - Carolina Hurricanes Concept
Score: 7/10 - I really can't wait to see the rest of this series.
Jake88 - Stockton Thunder Concept
Score: 8/10 - The sock striping made to match the arm striping is one of the best details of this concept.
Tyler G. - Anaheim Ducks Concept
Score: 8.5/10 - The Ducks have gone with a 4 uniform rotation in the past, so why not try it with these?
Cristian L. - Vancouver Canucks Concept
Score: 9.5/10 - It kills me a little bit to nominate a Canucks concept, but here I go... Christian's concept is my COTW Nomination!
That's all for this week! Get started on your Griffins Contest entries. Next thing you know, the future stars of the NHL could be wearing them! And before I sign off, remember to vote for COTW this week! It was a really tough choice for me, so help decide the winner with just a single email.
