Toronto Stripes

Our new Minor League Sunday series takes to Toronto this weekend where Jake Miller has this look for the AHL's Marlies.

0668: Around the AHL

Welcome to Minor League Week on the Concepts page! And just to get really crazy, we're doing individual theme days within this theme week. As you can see, today is about the American Hockey League. Thomas Hopkins gets us started with this clever use of the old Atlanta Flames logo for the Abbotsford Heat. I think a grey and red team would look fantastic!

Ryan Haslett decided to get a little creative with his hometown Toronto Marlies, creating a new crest to go with his two-tone blue sweater. Another solid one there!

A newcomer to the Concepts page, Cody Smith reimagined the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins a little with this wordmark-centric uniform set. The throwback to the Pittsburgh jersey from the '90s saves it.

And we'll wrap up with Avi Stein's idea for a Binghamton Senators third jersey. The "B" works just as well as the "O" there — if not better!

Tomorrow we'll see some of the entries to the ECHL's 2015 All-Star Game jersey design contest.

0378: The AHL in the Elements

When the NHL canceled the 2013 Winter Classic, it also effectively canceled one of two outdoor AHL games — since the ice sheet they were counting on was never built. It would've been the Grand Rapids Griffins hosting the Toronto Marlies, but it didn't happen. Maybe next year when the Winter Classic is expected to be rescheduled. In the meantime, this is what frequent contributor Ryan Haslett thinks the two clubs should wear when they eventually do meet up in the elements.
