Top 12 Aesthetically Pleasing NHL Teams

Hockey is for everyone...with a good sense of style.

Top 12 Aesthetically Pleasing NHL Teams

Now that football season is over, I have turned my attention back to the sports world in search of a new distraction. I've found it in the NHL teams and their creative apparel. So in case you were curious about the cutest uniforms in the hockey world, don't panic, the answers are here.

12. Philadelphia Flyers

Orange is the new black, right? Fortunately this team has both and it is the only team that can pull it off. Way to be original and avoid the classic red and blue that so many sports teams fall victim to.

11. Colorado Avalanche

We need to take a moment and appreciate the design of the logo. The flawless incorporation of the avalanche and the puck at the end is what earns them the number 11 spot. Their colors could be better, though, but other than that they get major creativity points.

10. Minnesota Wild

I am obsessed with the horizon incorporated into the wolf head (probably because it reminds me of the Black Hills, but that's beside the point). Wilderness is such a vague concept, but I think Minnesota did an amazing job with what they were given. Red and green can very easily turn too Christmassy, but these take on more of a rugged, outdoorsy vibe than anything else. Overall a success. I'd wear it.

9. Toronto Maple Leafs

Simple, clean and a huge, yet endearing, spelling error. What more can you ask for from an NHL team? (Also, those shoulder pads.)

8. Nashville Predators

This logo made me laugh really, really hard. Probably because it reminds me of myself when I'm about to bite into a panini from Bread Co. Not to mention this is Mike Fisher's (i.e. Carrie Underwood's husband) team, so that makes it a million times better.

7. Pittsburgh Penguins

Okay, so it's not the most intimidating mascot and they didn't go the Batman route like I totally thought they would, but who isn't entertained by a bodybuilder penguin playing hockey? Extra points for creativity and the ability to laugh at yourself, Pittsburgh.

6. San Jose Sharks

Love the colors and it's a lot scarier than Pittsburgh's mascot. Go ahead then, California, we see you.

5. Detroit Red Wings

Watching the Red Wings play is basically to assault your eyes in the best possible way with a sea of red jerseys from players and fans. This could easily be obnoxious and frustrating, but it works spectacularly well.

4. Anaheim Ducks

The Ducks made it onto the list partially because the Mighty Ducks movie is part of my childhood, but mostly because ducks are the most random animal to choose for a mascot for an NHL team and I love it.

3. Chicago Blackhawks

Ah, yes. The one Chicago team I have respect for. Nice colors, classic logo (just look how happy he is) and a killer record to match. I'll give you this one, Chi Town.

2. Los Angeles Kings

Black and white is a classic color combination that exudes pure class, and I am obsessed with this jersey. Like honestly, not even kidding, I would wear this as pj's, an interview outfit, a prom dress - I don't care. Clean lines and classic colors is the way directly to my heart.

1. St. Louis Blues

Oh look, it's the pride and joy of the NHL! Even though I didn't know why the Blues' logo was a music note until high school (judge me, I dare you), they have a class color combination and an original logo with history behind it. I'd be lying if some serious hometown pride didn't influence this decision, but that doesn't matter really.

So there you have it. Hockey isn't merely a violent, fast-paced game that produces god-awful smells from the locker room. It's fashionable, too.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
