About Us

This site is designed to capture the past and present of center ice designs. It serves as a historical archive of NHL ice designs and also explores other pro and minor leagues. We also branch out into other off the ice audio and visual details such as scoreboards and goal horns. The site is always expanding and will likely never be 'finished'. You may feel free to use these images on another site. All I ask is that you give credit and link back to this site!

Who Is Behind The Faceoff?

TheFaceoff.net is run by one person, but benefits from the invaluable contributions of several partners and contributers.


Ryan - (Dryve) - 3D Graphic Design:  Ryan began working with the site in 2019, working on 3D scoreboard designs. He is turning many of our 2D scoreboard recreations into 3D masterpieces. Follow him on Twitter: @TheDryve_

Famous Goal Horns - Goal Horn Partner: Check out his channel on youtube.


Alex (N2B) - Animation Design:  Alex has created animations for our scoreboard videos and has even helped bring a few of our scoreboards to life. His animations are professional quality and we are excited to be working with him. Follow him on Twitter: @n2balex

Cory - Research, Promotion: Cory came on board in September of 2012 having already done a lot of research on historical NHL center ice designs. Along with a lot of accuracy-checking, he also spread the word about the site and was largely responsible for the fan-base that we have now.

CF92 - Research, Graphic Design: CF92 also jumped on board in September of 2012 with previous experience in designing ice graphics. His experience has led him to make many of the older ice graphics and has given him a keen eye for accuracy checking on existing ice graphics.

Shawn Jones - Ice Research, Graphic Design

Shawn has provided research and reference material for NHL and CHL ices. His work has allowed us to add authentic in-ice advertisements for the CHL section and improve the accuracy of many other ices around the site. Follow him on Twitter: @jones1_shawn
