A hockey fan based in Brazil creates football jerseys for every NHL team

NHL jerseys have been reinterpreted by fans as baseball and basketball jerseys before, but now a hockey fan from Brazil decided to explore how teams would look on soccer jerseys.

Gabriel, 22, is a blues fan living in southern Brazil near Uruguay. A programmer currently learning how to develop video games, Gabriel began experimenting with design after being inspired by a YouTube show titled From post to post.

“There was reaction from a lot of concept jerseys and there were some videos like ‘what if they were baseball teams’ or ‘what if NHL teams had football helmets’ and as a Brazilian I naturally thought of football! Since I couldn’t find anything, I started making them.”

Using an online website called FIFA Kit Creator, Gabriel went through templates to create the uniforms.

“I tried to do something different for almost all the shirts so they wouldn’t look boring,” he said.

On the left side of each jersey, NHL jersey partner adidas rests on the shoulder, while the team’s logo sits on the right side. Since football jerseys typically have a corporate sponsor emblazoned on the chest, Gabriel used the NHL helmet sponsor for almost every team to replicate this. For teams like Avalanche and Flyers, he used the company that secured the naming rights to the team’s arena.

“The feedback has been pretty good for something so different, especially as soccer doesn’t look like a big thing in the United States,” Gabriel said.

Below is what he came up with.
