Matt and his Wild concept now move onto the very important 4th Quarter Vote. The entrants for this vote are listed on the side of the page in the grey banner. You can see the concepts by clicking on the banner or by going to the COTY 2013 page.

Same voting rules apply, but as you can probably tell this is a very important vote to participate in. Voting ends on Friday and the winner moves on to the Concept of the Year Semi-Finals

------------------------------------------------

Are you wondering how those Concept of the Year Semi-Finals will work. It will be the same as the past two years. In case you haven't been around for the past two years take a look at this handy bracket.

The winner of the COTW vote for Dec 30 - Jan 5 was Caleb F., but we already knew that. It was his Saskatchewan Wheat concept that took it home.
Full Results
Caleb (SSK) - 7
Caleb (OAK) - 4

The new COTW nominees are listed on the side of the page in the black banner. You can see the concepts by clicking on the banner or by going to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK page. Anyone can vote and voting ends on Friday.

------------------------------------------------

The winner...the WINNERS of the Delaware Pioneers jersey competition are Matt R. and Austin E!
Matt and Austin will now have their jerseys produced and worn by the club. They will also receive a jersey themselves. I will be in touch with Matt and Austin soon. A huge thank you to everyone that participated!!! Ben, from the club, noted that it was a very difficult choice and he wanted to thank everyone that entered.

------------------------------------------------

It's now time for a new competition to start on HJC. This week will be the AHL Stadium Series Competition. Check out the AHL SS COMP page or click the banner at the top for all of the rules and details.

------------------------------------------------

For those of you that applied to be the new Wednesday writer on HJC. I will be thoroughly going through all of the applications tonight. The selected applicant will hear from me within the next couple of days. Their first post will be January 22.

------------------------------------------------

In case you're wondering what we're working towards with the Concept of the Year, take a look at the championship plaques from 2011 and 2012.

2011 - Josh S.

2012 - Justin C.

------------------------------------------------

Ok, keep breathing. Here it is. The 3rd most important vote of the year on HJC. Think about if you were in this vote. You would want people to vote. You wouldn't want a weak turnout and lose by a 2-1 score. So take the 30 seconds right now and send in your votes...PLEASE!!!!

4th Quarter Vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW Jan 6-12 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)

Sorry @Ryan... I'm tired and didn't see it. I'm working on my AHL Stadium Series jerseys.

Austin Ell said...

Wow. I am overwhelmed with excitement about this news. Huge thanks to Ryan and Ben for the opportunity, can't wait to see these hit the ice! Congrats to Matt too! P.S does this mean our concept gets put into the COTW voting?

Ryan said...

@Austin: No, the AHL Stadium Series winner will be the first to move into COTW.

@Austin and Ryan

But you could still resubmit your jerseys, get reviewed, nominated, and voted on like every other non-contest jerseys, right? Doesn't mean for sure you'd make it to COTW, but it could still happen.
