Here is a design that can translate to any sport with playoffs: the bracket from the background of the All Valley Tournament, seen in the original The Karate Kid. The above depicts the upcoming 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Go Flames Go.

Mini Budweiser Red Light

Budweiser’s Red Lights are awesome, I’m quite positive they are coveted by all hockey fans. I’ve yet to get one myself because I still use a dumbphone (the lights require an app), but one day, it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

NHL ’94 Tabletop Hockey

I was recently looking over some old Coleco table hockey players, and had an idea: die-cut stickers (meaning no white backdrop) on clear plastic blades. This approach would not only look good for those Coleco players, but for pixelated players too.

Pro Sports Locker Hall Tree

Custom NHL Furniture by Dave Delisle

A Hall Tree is a coat rack combined with a storage bench that is parked by the front door or in a mud room; here are some examples. I feel these Hall Trees could be made to look like player lockers from the pro leagues (NHL, NBA, NFL, etc.). The above design is based on the actual lockers belonging to the Calgary Flames, but you could do this with any pro team.

A New Spin On Tabletop Hockey

This is a combination of THREE hobbies I had when I was kid: tabletop hockey, hockey cards, and hockey sticker albums. I present a mini tabletop hockey set that is adorned with players and stickers found in hockey card packs. This sort of thing would only be possible if a tabletop manufacturer partnered with a hockey card maker.

I was just thinking about how these things I enjoyed as a kid are essentially extinct today. To make these ancient things appealing to today’s kids, I felt a combination of toys and playing cards might draw their attention, sort of like Bakugan.

Full-Zip Hoodie Designs

Full-zip hoodies basically come with a mask once fully zipped-up. Plenty of potential for Superheros and other geeky characters! Personally I’d like to see NHL-themed hoodies with retro goalie masks (like Ken Dryden above), but that’s probably not your cup of tea. After the jump are a bunch of designs you might like.
