CANUCKS FEEL RESTRICTED BY NAME, LOGO -- MAY CONSIDER CHANGE
Published May 23, 1995
The Canucks, who feel like they're "operating now under a restrictive name and logo," could consider a name change "if there was overwhelming support for a change," according to Northwest Entertainment Group's Larry Donen. Mike Beamish writes in this morning's VANCOUVER SUN that the NEG's NBA Grizzlies have "turned the sporting fashion world on its head" with their uniform designs, and the company's creative types are "always thinking." Donen says the Canucks will soon introduce a third, "special events" jersey "in the near future." Beamish writes that this jersey could be a "weaning-off process" for the team's fans before a new jersey or logo change (VANCOUVER SUN, 5/23). AFFILIATE SWITCH: The Blues are expected to announce today they are naming the AHL Worcester IceCats as their main minor- league affiliate. The Blues will drop their IHL affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen (USA TODAY, 5/23).
