Midwest Classics

This Outdoor Saturday brings us another look at the next Winter Classic in St. Louis. Eric Andrews is going with some old, old throwbacks — both of which would look excellent next January.

Quad City Trio

The ECHL's Quad City Mallards hosted a special jersey design contest in October. A handful of artists wanted to share there work with the Icethetics community. What do you think?

Ross Taylor has a sharp, classic look.

Eric Andrews went with something simple.

And finally, Christian Legault decided on a faux retro sweater. Hard to pick a favorite here.

0249: Rollin' on the River

AHL Week keeps rolling today with the Peoria Rivermen. Last month, the Rivermen announced the winner of a fan-focused jersey design contest. Today we're taking a look at a couple of the entries that were also considered (and sent my way). Mitch Whitlock tried a Predators-style all gold sweater. But the P/Illionois shoulder patch is pretty cool.

And Eric Andrews went the way of the wordmark, which is starting to become more common than a lot of us would prefer. And it screams Buffalo Sabres. Not sure the Blues would dig that. But that's just my take. What do you think of these two?
