FOUR NHL TEAMS REPORTEDLY LOOKING TO CHANGE LOGOS
Published January 30, 1995
According to an NHL source, four teams have submitted a request for changes in their jerseys and logos. Three are believed to be the Bruins, Nordiques and Islanders. The Bruins want to modernize their spoked "B" logo for the opening of the Shawmut Center, next season. Quebec was rumored to be switching its colors to navy blue and silver, and changing their logo from the "N-igloo" to either a polar bear or wolf. And according to team sources, the Islanders will "lose the Long Island crest in favor of an 'Islander' type character, right now a fisherman in a boat holding a hockey stick for a fishing pole." The team is also rumored to be changing their colors from navy blue and orange to what they call "Atlantic blue and seafoam" (AP/ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 1/29). NHL VP/Corporate Communications Bernadette Mansur said of the Bruins: "At this point, there hasn't been a design submitted that is stronger than the one currently in use." But Kevin Paul Dupont writes that if there is no new logo next year, the backlog of inventory will be the most likely reason (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/29).
