NHL Adidas concept: Minnesota Wild

Happy New Year everyone, Alan here for the first post of 2018 here at AJH HJA. Quick rant my thought on this year All-Stars jerseys. The design had everything going but no hem what's worse the Adidas version got those three stripes on the sides while the Fanatics version doesn't, which makes the jerseys look too plain to my taste. My jersey collection rate: Buy it at discount price.
Well quick rant done time for more of my NHL Adidas concept, this week the Minnesota Wild.

Stripes on the dark jersey is simple on both arms, hem, and yoke, while the stripes on the white jersey has more red. On the moon within the main logo is recolored from gold to white. The circle logo is use for the shoulders and on the helmet.

Jersey Review: North Pole Nicks Jersey 2.0.

Ho, ho, ho everyone Alan here at AJH HJA. Today on this Christmas day is not a concept but a jersey review. You may know I did a review of the North Pole Nicks Jersey made by Geeky Jerseys (formerly know as Rink Gear) well here's this link to refresh your mind. Now this year the fine folks from Geekyjerseys.com decide to give the jersey an update to me it's a long over due, so let's not waste time and get to the review.





Up points: A very nice mixture of red, and dark red with a touch of both white and silver. Checkerboard patterns stripes gives that the snowflake stripes an eye popper look. The nameplates and the numbers are thinner then their previous jersey, witch it's a good move. Both the main and shoulder logos are a nice upgrade.

Down points: Both the letters and the numbers lack trims.

Overall: Great update that is better then the old one!

My Jersey Collection Rate: Get the jersey when it up for sell!

Well that's my review of North Pole Nicks Jersey 2.0. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkahs, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Decemberween, Happy whatever Holiday you're celebrate. Until then, later.

Weekend post

Hi everyone, Alan here for some more rants here at AJH HJA! These are some I forgot to talk about, so let’s get on some rants!

Calgary Arena trouble
We jumped one problem with one team wanting to build an arena at taxpayer’s expense, I’m going to talk long on this one because it’s just the same old story, different team. If you’re thinking that the Calgary Flames are going to relocated somewhere else don’t hold your breath both the team and the city of Calgary will come to an agreement on building an brand-new arena soon.

Fan Request on hold
Remember my last post that had fan request post, well after that post John O. request another one but the problem is Hurricane Maria hit his home country Puerto Rico hard so the fan request concept is on hold till everything alright over there. My thoughts and prayers to him, his family, and the people of Puerto Rico during this harsh time.

Updates, and new template
I’ve updated the link page with some hockey league sites, even an fanfic site I like reading. Also updated the template page replacing the Reebok jersey template with Adidas jersey templates, with collars all made by Steven G. Lastly, I add my version of the Adidas collar, go check them out. Maybe with the new template I can use that for future fan request concepts. (I know I’m stretching that one, I’ll try selling that one to him.)

Pictures on this site
During the summer where I had barely time to do I replaced pictures from Photobucket to Google photo due to the whole 3rd party b.s.  Photobucket put a price tag to make my image show on this site, but that’s alright with me because that site has been slow to load, slow to upload, and pop up ads everywhere it was very tiring and an pain to work with to think after over ten years of using it, time to move on from that site.

Adidas jerseys system: Next league to follow
Well I got a good question for you all. When the AHL and CHL (Canadian Hockey League) follow suit into the Adidas jerseys system? I predict for the AHL it’ll be 2 years after this season, and for CHL, give it 5 years after this season for them to get into the Adidas jerseys system, I’m calling for it.

What’s next after NHL Adidas series?
Well for now there are indeed plans in the works, I’m thinking of doing an alternate series for all 31 NHL teams, and there are others flowing in my head also that has my local junior teams written all over it.

And that’s today post! The next will be my weekly NHL Adidas series, till then later.

Request to rant

Hi long time no posting, Alan here and back on the train here at AJH HJA. It’s been months since my last post here let’s just say the outside of the concept world was a roller coaster for me, from pushing the sale of my late grandma’s house witch in mid July the house is sold, to working extra hours at my workplace. But now everything is now calm for now so let’s get a ranting shall we.

Penguins back to back!
Well for the first time since the Wings did it in 97-98, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup two years in a row! It’s was an unthinkable thing I mean think about it from addition of Nashville Predators, Atlanta Thrashers (now Winnipeg Jets,) Minnesota Wild, and Columbus Blue Jackets to make it a 30-team league. To the Salary Cap factor, you would’ve thought that there would never be a team winning the cup back to back but the Pens did it.

NHL’s new uniforms
Well we all got to see new uniforms at this year’s NHL draft witch later see the rest. I’m going keep this short and sweet.
Winner: Pittsburgh Penguins for keeping the same design.
Some what a winner: Colorado Avalanche for bringing back their old-style design.
Almost an upgrade winner: San Jose Sharks, they had a chance to put those sweet alternate logos on the front to go along with their new shoulder patch.
Upgrade that didn’t go well to me: Edmonton Oilers, really? Three thin lines on both arms and hem.
Bad upgrade: Nashville Predators, I miss their last year set.
Big time “Loser!”: Ottawa Senators, you guys made news about rebrand and stuff but no you guys keep that stupid Reebok cookie cutter. Come on Sens!

My NHL Adidas concept series update
It’s official like I said from the top I finally got the series done as of right now I’m uploading them on my DeviantArt page one a day. But you’re thinking am I’m going to send my concepts to HJC? I will but unlike my format of sending 1 concept per week, I’m going to send all of them, it kind of got to the point that with my work schedule at high octane I’ll more likely miss a week so sending all my concepts is the only way to go. It’ll either wow them or blind the writer’s eyes (just kidding) we’ll see the outcome soon. As for posting them on this site it’ll be once a week starting September 30th.

Well my rant is done, time for concepts, request concepts if you look the “S” on the concept that means I got not 1, but 2 request concepts made by as always John O. this one is the Buffalo Sabres one I was O.K. with, but the other I had to bite my tongue on it. Let’s get to them.

Buffalo Sabres good old goat head era both logos, and colors on a buff slug design with J-Log razor edge sans small caps with two trims on both nameplate and numbers.

This one I really had to bite my tongue the buff slug logo or as I call them Trump’s hairpiece, with their colors on the jersey design based on the goat head era. Just like the first one the font for both nameplate and numbers is J-Log razor edge sans small caps.

Well that’s all I got all for today, see you all later on Sept 30th or if I get another John O’s concept request soon, as speaking of John, his home Puerto Rico along with other country are bracing for the worst from Hurricane Irma, my thoughts and prayers going out to there stay safe everyone. Until then, later.

Request to post a concept before the Playoffs!

Hi everyone, Alan here for my 3rd post of 2017 here on AJH HJA! I’m going right straight to with my thoughts on things in the NHL and other stuff.

The Streak is over
In the 2014 WWE Wrestlemania The Undertaker streak ended by Brock Lensar. This year after 25 years the Detroit Red Wings playoff appearance streak is over as they didn’t play well, but the only good part about this is they didn’t play like the Colorado Avalanche this year “man that wasn’t pretty.” They will get as least a good pick at this year draft.

Oilers going Orange all the way.
The Oilers are going to the playoffs for the first time since 2006 so what the team do for the playoffs? Well the Oilers higher ups announced that starting at this year playoffs that the team will be wearing their orange jerseys and more likely next season home games. I'm a fan of the Oilers orange jersey but promoting it from alternate to home is not the way to go it's feels like it got that Calgary Flames vibe going on, but will see maybe the higher ups will think twice after this year playoffs.

Well that’s my quick rants, on to once again a fan request concept by John O. This time it’s the Oilers rival the Calgary Flames. This request is the Flames old 1995-2000 set in Reebok form.

These featuring 3 things. 1: It featuring the flaming horse logo on the shoulders. 2: The nameplate font is J-LOG Starkwood Sans. 3: We got a black alternate jersey.

For this years, Playoffs Pickz I’m going just straight to picks instead of explaining of team’s info I felt it’s time consuming to put many stuff together in so little time that’s all I’m making a change to it until if I get the time, and the feel to do some reviews from the rounds. Also at the same time I’ll be posting some more Flames fan request concepts requested by John O.
Well that’s all I got to write about here the next post will be my annual “NHL Playoff Pickz” until then, later.

Just posting some infos

Hi everyone Alan here for my 2nd post of 2017, I’ve been busy with my NHL Adidas series and cleaning up over at my grandma’s house so it’ll be ready to be up for sale so in other words I’m multi tasking ha ha ha.

Now first up my logo, as you can see instead of “AJH 2017” it’s “AJH FTW 2017” the reason is because I’m celebrating my 5th year of having my DeviantArt page. Once I’m done with my NHL Adidas series I’ll be uploading them to my DA page then I’ll post them here after this year NHL playoffs.
If you like the fonts I used on my logo go to the links page under “Fonts from John O.” he has two links containing fonts made by him with many fonts he made, go check out.


Now the next thing is the template. I’m using the same template that I now used since late last year made by Steven Grant Design, however ever since Adidas showed off their jerseys at the World Cup of Hockey with that collar design that they made, I had to check out if there any templates around and there are some but nothing close to the templates I use, so I decided to make the collar that looks like the Adidas collar and I must say it’s not perfect but it’s sure darn close to it. I will tweak some collars to fit the teams look. 


Well, that’s my post. My next post before the playoffs maybe an fan request concept post if I get the chance to finish it. Until then, later.
