Happy Friday morning everyone, hope you all had a great week – certainly was a busy week at SportsLogos.Net with the news about the Whiteout and Royals trademarks being filed by various Canadian based hockey teams; we also launched a new search engine on the main site, give it a shot next time you’re on SportsLogos.Net.
Time for an update of what’s going on in the world of sports logos and uniforms over the last few days.
- As you can see above, we have the logo for next year’s Memorial Cup – to be held in Shawinigan, Quebec – we’ve only seen the French version so far. This is also the first Quebec hosted Memorial Cup to include a poppy, the only Cup logo in the past 6 years to not include the poppy was the 2009 tournament held in Rimouski, Quebec
- The Winnipeg NHL team won’t be called the Whiteout, as we thought it will end up being used for potential playoff appearances by the team
- In other Winnipeg NHL news they will not be getting the Jets history even if they take the identity, True North is concerned about having a team named after the history of another team – and, yes, that would be weird. NHL VP Bill Daly was in Winnipeg reviewing the various name options the club is considering.
