If you haven't checked out our other teams, visit the Re-Imagining the NHL team page. The team page will be updated daily with every team we update. So before we take a look at the uniforms, lets take a look at Cole's comments on the Blackhawks.
Cole's comments: Here is one of the teams that barely needs any tweaks at all. I absolutely adore everything about the Blackhawks uniforms and always have. The logo, the striping, the colors. It's a classic that doesn't need to be changed.
That said, where is the fun in making a concept that doesn't change anything? I did the unthinkable and actually ditched my favorite hockey jersey of all time (the blackhawks white sweater) and tried to come up with some something classic, understated, and more in-line with the home sweater. I hope you don't hate me for it. (I actually have 3 different blackhawks road sweaters on my laptop, and i didn't know which one i was going to use for sure until about an hour ago, and i'm still not entirely convinced i made the right choice.)
The homes are mostly unchanged, with only a slight alteration of the logos, and a return to the classic tie-up sweaters that I think accompanied Chicago's best look (Hull-era).... I also brought back the triple stripe on the sleeves, rather than the white/black/white that they've had for my entire life. The roads try to mimic the look of the home, with a few artistic liberties thrown in just for my own taste's sake.
The thirds are something I'm pretty proud of, but will probably be polarizing. Using the same template as the home and road, I made a solid black and white sweater that nods to the original chicago black hawks uniforms of the 1920's and 30's, but can't be considered a throwback, since the design is entirely different. i kept a few red accents just to give it a bit of a "sin city" aesthetic and add a little modern flavor to it.
After the jump, the Blackhawks!...
