Dallas Stars New Uniform Leaked, Paying Homage to the Cowboys?

Written By:  •  Monday, April 1, 2013

Just a few days after the Miami Dolphins identity was leaked all over the Internets, we’re getting ourselves all set for round two thanks to an anonymous tipster.

In what looks like to be an screenshot of an official 2013-14 NHL stylesheet we’re getting ourselves our first look at the new “simplified and traditional” Dallas Stars graphics.

Dallas’ new uniform for 2013-14, lots of green and a Dallas Cowboys star?

On first glance, huzzah that green is still very prominent – there were fears they were going red, white, and blue – and I’m also personally happy to see that the wordmark/front-number basketball jersey design style of the last half-decade has been shelved for good (although we don’t get to see the road uniform on this image).

A few other things to note… isn’t that the Dallas Cowboys logo? Sure looks like it to me, now re-coloured in green and white instead of blue and white, also it appears the little notch on the top of the star (where the “A” was in the old identity) is present.  The Stars primary logo since their move from Minnesota in 1993 looks to also be sticking around as a shoulder patch, however now no longer in italics and also just in green and white.

I’m sure we’ll get more details in the coming days, naturally we’ll keep you posted.  The image itself suggests we’ll see this unveiled to the public in “Q3 2013″, which is fancy business speak for anytime in between July and September, (or right around draft time!)… so look at your calendar and start counting down the days.  Let’s see, it’s April 1st now, so that leaves only however many days… well, you can figure it out.

 

UPDATE (Apr 1/13 12:25pm ET): Happy April Fool’s Day, everyone!

    nice April Fools day post Chris…..

    • Christian

      Very boring, but that is to be expected from the Dallas Stars

  • http://www.facebook.com/slava.malamud Slava Malamud

    Yeah, yeah, April Foos, haha

  • http://www.facebook.com/bobby.mason.90 Bobby Mason

    please be an april fool’s joke

  • tajmccall

    The logo on the right looks exactly like a logo where the font is missing, and its replaced with Myriad on your computer in Adobe Illustrator. An absolute disaster of font and weight choice. Yuck.

    Between them, the Astros, and the Warriors, teams are seemingly letting the owner’s grandsons muddy up an otherwise promising identity change with elements found on MSword.

    Yuck.

  • Aj Crisp

    That’s so bad, it HAS to be an April Fool’s joke.

  • Vincent Leterme

    Awful. And there are so great concepts on the web…

  • http://www.facebook.com/masik Aaron Masik

    And I’m suiting up for the Rampage tomorrow as a healthy scratch.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacob.barrette.5 Jacob Barrette

    This looks legit.

  • Scott Jones

    I’d love for this to be legit; numbers on the front of hockey sweaters are extremely tacky.

  • Kevin

    Please be an April Fools joke. Please please please.

  • http://www.facebook.com/clarky86 Ben Clark

    If this isn’t april fools I’ll projectile vomit over this

  • David (nuordr)

    I didn’t think their new uniforms could be as bad as their last….hopefully this is an April Fools Joke.

  • Travis Gagnon

    hopefully this isn’t an april fools joke, because this is pretty cool, better than their current ones

  • Aaron

    I’m pretty sure this is an April Fool’s joke, but this uniform if legit, look pretty clean. But don’t copy the Cowboys’ star please. Add some gold and serifs to the Stars wordmark.

  • http://doejo.com noah

    Weak sauce branding, yo. Wordmark appears to be Myriad?? Brutal

  • Patrick

    Had they maintained the slanted star on the chest, maybe this could work. Although better than this year’s uniform, it doesn’t sell me on going out to buy one. Disappointing that this may be the direction they’ll go with all of the awesome concepts I’m seeing on the web to choose from!

  • Delayed Penalty

    Yzermanize! April Fools!

  • Jonathan Kim

    even if an april fools joke, the stars need jerseys!

  • http://www.facebook.com/liam.scanlan Liam Scanlan

    If your own wife calls you on it, it’s gotta be fake.

  • John Aiken

    I know it is a AF one but let them wear them down a street in Buffalo they won’t get out the other end of the street.

  • tim d.

    if this isn’t april fools, then can you say recoloured tampa bay?

  • Chris Oglesby

    it’s an AF joke.

  • http://www.facebook.com/aaron.sanchez.5492 Aaron Sanchez

    Theres no way this is real. Jerry Jones has that cowboys star ©opyrighting, period!!!

  • Matt Froonjian

    its just the tampa bay lightning jersey colored green

    • Aaron

      Actually, it’s the Minnesota Wild alternates. Just swap the star with the script logo.

      • JJ

        Nope, it’s the Tampa uniforms colored green as Matt said.

        • Chris Creamer

          As the one who actually created the jerseys, it’s the Minnesota Wild alternates with one stripe removed from each arm and the waist.

  • Paul Houston Armstead

    pls be an april fool joke

  • Harry

    Thank god that was an April Fools joke! It’s just a green version of Tampa Bay’s jersey.

  • Josh

    Oh dear lord, this was funny — especially after reading all the comments.

  • Rob S.

    I think these look good. The Stars should only be too happy to have these!.I am afraid they may be really bad when finally released.. Personally the one’s from the 90′s when they first moved to Dallas are the classic ones.Those were top notch, before they ruined them in 1999.

    • Aaron

      To their credit, they did win the Stanley Cup with those jerseys back in ’99. I’ve also seen concepts like this only with a roundel around the star ala Houston Astros, if you google Dallas Stars and click images. Definite improvement over their current ones. If they slanted the star a little, bonus.

  • Chris

    Tampa Bay lightning much? haha.

  • Jeriat

    Obvious April Fools is obvious…

  • http://www.yancykyeater.com Yancy

    Could have at least used one of the old Astros star logos. Actually not a bad idea (self gratifying sniff)

    • Aaron

      If your referring to The mid 90′s to 2012 star logo, I was thinking roughly the same thing. And maybe combine it with the D somehow. A slightly modernized version of the original North Stars logo, eh?

  • Bill

    Har dee har, April Fool. I recognize the striping pattern as Tampa Bay, number font and jersey color as Minnesota Wild alternate. The Stars will be using a different shade of green, to be sure. Nice effort by somebody using a graphic editing program, but this hockey fan of 40 years is not fooled. Nicetry, buddy.

  • KDub

    If so, it shows zero imagination.

  • ingmar66

    Good joke, reading all those comments was well worth the prank. Wonder what Dallas will come up with.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jasonthomasx Jason Thomas

    Jokes actually on THEM! They STILL have to wear these dumb things: http://www.comicconartists.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Dallas.png So Ha ha, ha ha ha ha…

  • Matt

    Yeah….how old are we that we are still playing dumb April fools jokes?

    • Chris Creamer

      Thirty.
