Frozen Faceoff

Mike , No Comment

Frozen Faceoff

I’m very upset about the NHL lockout. With giving up college football and not really wanting to go all in on the NFL, the NHL was all set to get a lot more viewing from me this season. What we have here is a positive link for NHL fans.

Center ice designs for all the NHL arenas. So you can see all of them on the homepage. So cool, right? Oh, it’s not done. Click around for historical center ice designs. Yes. Historical.

One thing that stood out is that most teams have gone with the single giant logo these days. Only the Flyers and Canadians have the two logos on each side of the red line.

Looking at all the Flyers designs they have on the site, the only reason they’ve ever really had to change is for the numerous changes to the name of the arena thanks to all the bank buyouts and mergers over the years.

The Spectrum always had the best designs and that early 90s center ice should be the design for all time.

Hershey Bears – New Logo

Mike , No Comment

I’ve never seen the Hershey Bears play but have always liked them. Probably because they’ve been around forever (next year is 75 years). So when I was little (not 75 years ago) the Phantoms (in Philly) were around yet and what kid doesn’t love Hershey. So there you go.

I haven’t thought much of them in a while. The Phantoms moving away hasn’t helped my AHL knowledge. But I spotted their new logo and it’s pretty great.

I didn’t see anything about the jerseys, that will be important to put the jerseys into context and see how the all chocolate works with this solid logo.

One other thing I spotted while on the Hershey Bears site was that they are playing an outdoor game in January at Hersheypark Stadium. Ok, everyone is playing outdoor games these days. But I was excited by the logo.

Actually, I have thought about the Hershey Bears recently. Last month, the Hersheypark Arena roof caught fire. The Bears haven’t played there in 10 years but they still practice there. The arena opened in 1936. Link to a news story about the fire.

Found on Icethetics.

A History of the NHL’s Current Logos

As I do with most items I find that feature the entire league, I look for the Philly team. I had to scroll pretty far to get to the Flyers.

They really got this one perfect on the first try. That or just its design makes it nearly impossible to tweak.
