One of many ways we are celebrating our tenth anniversary is with the return of NCAA center ice designs.
It is hard to believe The Faceoff is 10 years old. When I started this site, it was mostly just to show off a few of my graphics that I had created. I never believed it would turn into what it is today.
Getting back to our throwback series with a look at a return of the 80's and 90's. The Canucks skate logo was around for a couple decades but only appeared in the center ice circle for 6 years.
Just 4 hours ago, we uploaded the final 2021 NHL season center ice graphic, or so we thought. The Islanders have already changed up their ice a bit, just a couple weeks into the season
