I was going to wait until the new year to start a new competition, but I had it waiting in my back pocket so I figured I'd start it now. Plus, the first phase is a logo competition, so you now have just under two weeks to put something together.
The competition? A 2016 World Cup of Hockey competition! Click the banner at the top of the page for all of the details.
With only two COTW votes remaining in the 2014 COTW calendar it starts to become very important to place your votes. What a letdown it would be to see a concept advance with only 2 or 3 votes. So email in your COTW vote and make these concepts earn it!

I mentioned it a while back, but the Quad City Mallards will be using a jersey designed by me for their January 31st "Original 6" themed game against the Brampton Beast (who would have guessed that?).
It all started with my entry into the Mallards' jersey competition.
I've got my plane tickets and I'm headed out to Moline, Illinois that weekend to take in the game and see the jersey in action. Of course there will be a blog post or two about it.
That's enough about me, lets get to the concepts...

Waterloo Wolverines (This Is Road Hockey) by Mario A.
"This is Road Hockey" is an old mockumentary and Mario has come up with jerseys for a team from the movie. I have not seen the movie, so it's hard to make a connection here, but the colours are cool. The font for the name and NOB work well with the logo. There's a double outline on the logo, so it would have been nice to see that on the numbers as well.

Washington Capitals by David K.
Is anyone outside of Washington or Chicago pumped up about this game? For all of the previous games I've had a reason to watch. It's mainly because I wanted to see what the stadium would look like, except for 2011 when it was to see Crosby versus Ovechkin. This season's game just doesn't have that kind of appeal. I don't care what the ballpark will look like because there's nothing special about it and Toews versus Ovechkin...Toews wins everytime. Not interested. Thoughts?
