Five By Tristan Mani

We have some awfully talented and prolific designers contributing to this page on a regular basis, so I feel compelled to return to the "Five By" series again with a new group of artists. And this time we're tackling the entire week — five concepts a day for the next seven days!

Let's start with Tristan Mani. He's got a unique style and five third jersey proposals. Which is your favorite? I'm having trouble deciding between Boston and San Jose.

San Diego Trio

As we await the unveiling of the San Diego Gulls' uniforms, several artists have already taken a stab at designing them. I wonder who will be closest. First up is Jake Miller, who's taking a straightforward approach to the design.

Scott Markiewicz imagines they'll go with something similar to that of their owner and NHL affiliate, the Anaheim Ducks.

And finally, Kevin Kurz has my personal favorite — based on the old Mighty Ducks jerseys from the '90s. Which of these three is your favorite?

Outdoors in Minnesota

With the Wild set to host the Blackhawks in the 2016 NHL Stadium Series, Nick Burton put together a couple of jerseys based on the template seen this season in California.


Did someone say Freak Out Friday? The Sabres may be without a third jersey for the foreseeable future, but that hasn't stopped Dylan Nowak from dreaming.

The Future of Pittsburgh Gold

Since the Penguins seem to be ready to start shifting back to Pittsburgh gold, anyone else envision a design like this one by Kevin Dion as a future third jersey?

(And I'm already anticipating the comments of a certain regular visitor.)
