Did you guys know that the United States Coast Guard has had a hockey program since 1942? No I'm not talking about the academy. I'm talking about the Coast Guard Hockey Organization. Originally formed as the Coast Guard Cutters hockey squad, the organization (which is NOT affiliated with the US Coast Guard, DOD, DHS, Any MWR Program or the Armed Forces Sports Council) hosts numerous tournaments throughout the year and help raises money for numerous foundations around the country. If you want to read more about it, click here for more information.
Also, for those of you who actually paid attention to my Maryland post last week, here's the official picture and mockup of the uniform.
COTW May 19-25 vote (ends Friday @ noon ET)
HJC Open Logo Competition entries (due Friday, June 9 @ noon ET)
Onto the concepts!
Adam G- Florida Panthers
Negatives: It would be nice to see you match the ends of the arms on the white jersey with the bottom of the white jersey. Also, the shoulder logos could be pushed a little closer to the collar.
Anthony C- Montreal Canadiens
Negatives: Those sleeve numbers look too small. As for the alternate, I'd like to see it as a dark jersey instead of a white.
Anthony C- New York Rangers
Negatives: Using the shield for the TV numbers, which are a little small by the way, was a cool idea but it just doesn't work here. Also, I get that you just took the diagonal lettering and pasted it onto the front of the jerseys but make it a little cohesive.
Anthony C- St. Louis Blues
Negatives: The sleeve numbers are really small and having yellow numbers on the white jersey could be a little hard to read even with the blue outline.
Lucas D- Nashville Predators
Negatives: This does make me miss a yellow primary jersey but it does work so good job.
Overall: 9/10 COTW NOMINEE
Noah B- Buffalo Bills
Negatives: I mean besides the fact that the logo looks a little too low this is pretty solid.
Noah B- Calgary Stampeders
Negatives: The tale of the horse is impeding on the piping of the jersey so you might want to make the logo a bit smaller. Also, the white randomly at the bottom of the hem just looks awkward.
Ok that's all I have for this week guys. come back next week where we find out how many hot dogs Phil can eat in one sitting! have a good week everybody.
