  1. Power Ranking NHL Alternate Jerseys in 2019: Looking back at the year of 2019, we rank all of the current NHL alternate jerseys that are in use for the 2019-20 season. Countdown starts from #22 then goes to #1. #22: Winnipeg Jets Alternate Jersey Has a good colour scheme but the word mark devalues the design as its lazy and bland. Too many teams have been trying this and has backfired. #21: Los Angeles Kings Alternate Jersey The stripes and shoulder yoke are cool but it doesn't pop. The grey body doesn't suit the design and the logo. #20: Ed
  2. Another year, another round of hype surrounding Stanley Cup contenders and their hockey fans. This is part of our Stanley Cup prediction series. The Western Conference was covered the other day and it can be viewed if you’re interested: OJC OFFICIAL STANLEY CUP PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS: WESTERN CONFERENCE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING (A1) VS COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS (WC2) ADVANTAGES: Offence: Bolts Defence: Bolts Powerplay: Bolts Penalty Kill: Blue Jackets Goaltending: Bolts X-FACTOR: Bolts: Nikita Kucherov Blue Jackets: Sergei Bobrovsky One of the
  3. Another year has gone by and oh what a year it was. There was a plethora of alternates introduced from NHL teams during the fall of 2018 and 2019 will be no shortage of new jersey releases either. Icethetics is offering the expected changes that might during the next year and we’ll give you our take on what the new jerseys could look like and in some cases, what it should like look like. ANAHEIM DUCKS 2019 THIRD JERSEY: Expected. Yes, we’re going on this ride one more time! The Ducks debuted a new third jersey with some throwback elements for their 25th anniversary — b
  4. October 1st, 2018 marks a big day in the Islanders world as another Adidas alternate jersey was beautifully delivered to the world. I want to be the first to show you how the elements of this jersey design come together (in this case, deconstructed) with meaning and significance. The jersey itself is very simple in design, but the colours blend nicely together. The overall body of the jersey was inspired by the 2014 Stadium Series jersey the Islanders released in their first two outdoor games against the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers. As soon as the video of th
  5. I heard there was definitely going to be a Kings jersey for the 18/19 season but so far it has been kept quiet. Does anyone know any specualation as to what it's going to be? My guess is it'll be the royal purple or gold unis form the 70s.
  6. The Pittsburgh Penguins have experienced a plethora of highs and lows since the tale of the club first began in 1967. The Penguins are a team of destiny. When they were down and ready to fold as a franchise, a superstar was there to save them. Mario Lemieux led the Penguins to back-to-back Stanley Cup victories in the early 1990’s after a miserable decade in the 1980’s. Same scenario played out in the early 2000’s when the franchise was playing terrible on the ice plus it was on the verge of bankruptcy. Sidney Crosby came into the league in 2005 to lead the Penguins to 10 consecutive years mak
  7. It’s the 100th year anniversary of the NHL and things are looking festive for the 2016/17 NHL season. It’s also the 100th year anniversary of the Toronto Maple Leafs as well as the 50th year anniversary of the Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings. As a side note, it’s also the 50th consecutive year that the Maple Leafs haven’t won the Stanley Cup but that’s none of my business. Jokes aside, the 2016/2017 NHL season is the season to celebrate legacies of championship teams and iconic players that left a mark over the years. This par
  8. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 100 years since the NHL has been breathing life and a lot of rich history has developed since it’s humble inauguration. We saw so much change throughout the NHL’s history, it’s almost mind boggling in a way of what the league went through and how it has evolved during it’s history. Many things have changed in the NHL since day one but the one big department that has been evolved with the game are the jerseys hockey players wear. The material has changed, how they’re made has changed and most interestingly, how the look of each sweater has c
  9. The trade deadline may not seem very significant at first considering that the NHL has the playoffs, draft and the all-star game. The trade deadline is more important than you may think because the outcome from the moves made by teams during that time can vary in extremes but the only thing that comes to mind as to why teams make key trades at that time. Because it’s the Stanley Cup. The media love to make a big deal out of it and it becomes more of a spectacle of entertainment more than anything and it’s sometimes hilarious watching the analysts making the trade announcements as dramatic as p
  10. In the past I wrote an article similar to this by listing the top 10 NHL alternate jerseys and there was a rank on them. While it was still interesting, I’m now putting a new twist to this. Now you get to vote what jersey deserves to be on the top. I would love to see a debate on this because I want to know what aspect in an NHL jersey fans value. I’m only talking about the context, the artistic design and how it presents your roots based on what’s on the sweater. Yes, sometimes your favourite player has wore that jersey and you love that jersey because of that fact but this is not what
