NHL 2021 Proposed Schedule

The 2021 NHL season is up in the air right now, and if it were up to me I would do the bubble system again, this time in 8 Canadian cities (with Quebec City lending a hand). Teams will play within their conference.

48 games broken up into 4 sessions, 12 games each. Each session will take place in a different bubble city for every team. The above image is the first session, the remaining 3 sessions would see all the teams shuffled around within their conference.

All games will be against opponents in the same conference. There are 4 western bubble cities, 4 eastern bubble cities. Teams will play each other 4 times in each session (in the Winnipeg bubble, teams will play each other 6 times). The schedule:

  • First Session: Bubble City A – 12 games (followed by 10-day break)
  • Second Session: Bubble City B – 12 games (followed by 10-day break)
  • Third Session: Bubble City C – 12 games (followed by 10-day break)
  • Fourth Session: Bubble City D – 12 games (followed by 3-day break)
  • Playoffs will take place in all 8 bubble cities, to prevent the triple OT madness that happened this year.

Each session will take about 24 – 26 days. The 10-day breaks between sessions will allow players to visit their families, and to travel between the bubble cities. The shorter 3-day break before the playoffs is just for travel. So this season will still take about 6 and a half months to play.

Calgary Flames Hockey Jersey Design

The Calgary Flames released a black alternate jersey in the late 90’s that fans have nicknamed Blasty, because of the horse’s fiery breath. I like that jersey (and still own one), my only complaint: too many outlines on the numbers.

Thought I would update Blasty and relegate him to the shoulders, because their primary logo looks really good on black. I want to nickname this one Lanny, because it almost looks like he is sporting Lanny McDonald’s famous moustache.

The Flames recently switched back to their original jerseys (yay!) so I kept the layout simple. The numbers are borrowed from their last alternate jersey.

Prince George Cougars Hockey Jersey Design

Prince George Cougars WHL logo

I used to call Prince George home many years ago, and I always felt their WHL team could look a bit more regal to match the city name (I do kinda like their current Thundercats logo). I added a few axes because the city is a forestry hub. The shoulder patch logo mixes a crown and paw together.

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.

Direwolves 7.0 Hockey Jersey Design

Direwolves 7.0 hockey jersey design by Dave Delisle

Here is the 7th edition of the popular Direwolves design. Geeky Jerseys wanted to do a “silver variant” of the design (like the gold variant for Voltron last year), so I came up with this.

New stripes this time, so hopefully folks who avoided the previous 6 designs because of their LA Kings look will be on board for this one. New shoulder patches and a back patch that is a stylized “W”/crown for Westeros. The back patch is my riff on Adidas, so if we ever did football kits that would be the go-to logo.
