The ten year anniversary of Sidney Crosby’s Golden Goal is fast approaching, thought I’d capture the moment in style! Can’t believe I haven’t done anything like this in several years.

NHL ’94 Hockey Jersey Design

NHL 94 jersey design by Dave Delisle

As you know I love NHL ’94, so making a design for the game was something I always wanted to do. I just didn’t until now because many others have already done such a design, so I wanted to do a unique take. Originally I was going to make this design based on the box art (black stripes and lettering on a white jersey), but it looked too boring.

I posted this on Twitter and Facebook yesterday (if you follow me on either, thanks), but with official NHL, NHLPA, and EA Sports logos included. To make this safe for Geeky Jerseys to potentially make, I made my own versions of these logos. And yes, head bleeds were in ’93 only so I made an exception for fun.

Bobby Orr’s Famous Goal – NHL ’94 Style Wallpaper

My first wallpaper for this blog is an NHL ’94 version of Bobby Orr’s famous “leaping” goal from 1970. I drew sprites for Bobby Orr, the goalie, and the player who tripped Orr. I then edited the goal crease and removed some helmets to reflect the 70’s era.

After the jump: various wallpapers! Click to enlarge each image.

The NHL Transformed

Transformers Hockey League NHL by Dave Delisle

I love the NHL and Transformers, so I’m pleased to mashup both here. There are so many teams in Transformers (like the Constructicons and Aerialbots), it makes for a good overall fit.

Detroit fans, I apologize in advance, but the Junkions are what kickstarted this whole thing. Plus they’re the only Transformer with a very distinct wheel.

UPDATE (August 8th 2015): Several teams have been updated, while a few (DAL, WASH, PIT, PHI) have been given new identities. I will probably keep updating these every once in awhile.

Pixel-Based Table Hockey Players

NES Ice Hockey Table Top by davesgeekyideas

Seeing as video games killed the table hockey star*, why not incorporate video game imagery into table hockey? Player sprites from NES Ice Hockey or Blades of Steel or EA’s venerable NHL series could be turned into table hockey players (the flat 2D variety), creating a retro look for the ol’ table top.

The player sprites from NHL 94 (or any EA game from the 16-bit era) would probably be the most ideal for superimposing onto existing table hockey players. The sprites for NES Ice Hockey would probably need their own custom player shapes (as seen above).

I might have to tackle this fun idea one day. I just wish there was a proficient way of making DIY stickers, y’know?

*I don’t mean to brag, but I am of course referring to myself.

Hockey Video Games That Need To Happen

Nintendo 3DS Hockey Game 2012

I should confess I haven’t played an EA NHL game since NHL 09, which is odd for me as I played just about every iteration of that series religiously prior to that. Instead, I dabble with some SNES NHL 94 now and again. There is nothing wrong with the recent EA games, but I find myself more often than not dreaming up other hockey video games I’d rather play. And here they are:

1. Stylus-based hockey game for the Nintendo DS/3DS. If I could open a bank account in the U.S.A. this would be my Kickstarter project. Basically you do all your passing and shooting with the stylus, and you’d control the player with the D-pad or thumbstick. You’d swap players automatically or hit the bumper button to do so.

Passing and shooting would be drag and release motions with the stylus. You could execute some fancy dekes within your puck range (the blue circle on the bottom screen), or try to intercept passes with an active stick. One interesting play mechanic is fighting for the puck in the corners with the opponent, or trying to fish the puck out from a scrum.

The top screen layout would be friendlier to the NES Ice Hockey/Blades Of Steel side-to-side play, rather than the EA NHL 16-bit games which had an up-and-down orientation.

This game would also be ideal for the Wii U, which also has a stylus.

2. Lego Hockey. This game would be a traditional hockey game like the EA NHL series, but the players (minifigs) would explode into several pieces when hit. There would also be a powerup system where you strategically build brick walls to aid your team/fluster the opponent. Read more about it here.

3. Nintendo Ice Hockey 2. Another game I touched on before, however this could be done in the style of the stylus game I mentioned above. One thing that I would like to add is that when a fight occurs, it would launch into a Smash Bros. style of game.

I was going to say an iPad table hockey game, but that was attempted with mixed results.
