Little bit of AHL news today, not as much news overall as last week's Wednesday post, but this should lead to some fun new concepts on the site. The AHL today announced an outdoor game between 2 of the league's newest teams.

Speaking of things that people want... we want you to vote. Easy week. No competitions, no looking through 30 concepts to vote... just your basic COTW vote!
COTW Aug 23-29 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
So now that that's all out of the way, let's get to the concepts!
2016 Winter Classic Concept - Boston vs. Montreal - Jarrett T.
As for Montreal, the jersey seems more like a Stadium Series jersey with a throwback logo. The jersey itself could just be a 'fauxback' since the Canadiens have barely changed their jersey design in almost 100 years. The white pants is too far though.
San Jose Sharks Concept - Matt G.
Ontario Reign Alternate Jersey Concept - Mollie G.
2016 Winter Classic Concept - Boston vs. Montreal - Ryan H.
Although there's barely any changes to the Montreal jersey it sets itself apart from their primary enough. Although, if you're trying to mimic their first jersey, the collar should be all blue (and a turtleneck) The Boston jersey is a nice updated version of their first jersey. Again, I'm not a fan of brown+black but there's not a lot of black so I'd be a little ok with it. The shoulder patches are a nice touch.
Rating: 8.5/10 - Let's hope the real jersey matchup is similar to this!
Memphis Grizzlies NBA Concept - Taylor R.
Well no more Wednesday posts.... until next Wednesday that is......
