Gold and Grey Collide

Another prolific designer of eye-catching jersey ideas is Avi Stein. He has a series I'll be rolling out of third jerseys for a handful of NHL teams. Here, he tackles the Sabres, showing how a gold jersey could work for this team.

As you can see, I'm showcasing non-playoff teams this week and next. Those other 16 clubs are getting all the attention they need right now. Tomorrow takes us to Long Island.

Two-Tone Canucks

Dylan Wonka often has some unique ideas to offer. This one really stuck out to me. Can't really put my finger on why, but it's a great hockey sweater. Could you ever imagine it as a Canucks third?

All About Arizona

The Phoenix Coyotes have played their last game under that name. The next time the club takes the ice, we'll be calling them the Arizona Coyotes. The team has no plans to change anything but the PHX shoulder patch, so Justin Cox decided to make some revisions for them.

For the crest, Justin was inspired by some prototype logos the Coyotes considered with their rebrand in 2003.

A Bastian of German Hockey

The big finale of Bastian Schmülling Week could not be more appropriate. We wrap up on an International Sunday where the German jersey designer tackles teams from his home country — and specifically, the Deutsche Eishockey Liga.

In the starring role up top is the DEL club from Germany's capital, Eisbären Berlin. But there's more. The league boasts 14 teams, but Bastian has incredible concepts for 10 of them! So as a bonus, you can find them all below.

I hope everyone has enjoyed Bastian's work as much as I do, but I think we can all agree it's time to get back to a little variety in our featured artists.

Throwbacks by Bastian

Typically, this space is reserved for outdoor game jerseys. But is the essence of that weekly theme not simply throwback style designs? Today, a trio of classic looks from Bastian Schmülling. First up, he imagines what might happen if the Phoenix Coyotes had been relocated to Quebec.

Or what if the NHL ever did expand to Hamilton? Could the Tigers stage a comeback?

And imagine a world where Montreal still had two NHL teams — the Habs and the Wanderers. These designs are Bastian's bread and butter. He seems to love classic hockey sweaters and does a great job with them.

Our Bastian Schmülling-centric theme week finally wraps up tomorrow with the biggest concept post you've ever seen. Ever.
