What is The Faceoff?
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!
David - Founder, Webmaster, Graphic Design: I started the site on April 25, 2011 as a way to show off some wallpaper for all thirty team's ice graphics for that season. I had no idea that it would turn into anything more than that. Now I work on the site daily, adding new graphics, and promoting the site.
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. He is also our official goal horn partner. Follow him on Twitter: @n2balex
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_
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.
