Many fans have voiced their love of the retro (throwback) jerseys the Flames have worn on and off over the past several seasons. It would be great to see the team revert back to their old look, much like Buffalo. If they didn't it would likely mean a change in the primary logo.
Future season ticket holders for the Seattle Kraken have been getting previews of their seat location with some new renderings. These renderings have updated their center ice graphics and they seem to confirm one of our previous concepts, minus the red line design. Of course this could still change several times before they begin play, but at this moment, it would seem like the plan is for the ice design shown below.
Today, the Buffalo Sabres officially announced that they will return to royal blue next season. The logo and uniforms will all have a more modernized version of the original branding first used 50 years ago.
The Golden Knights have played three seasons, on three different center ice designs. Two of them are quite nice, while the inaugural season was a bit underwhelming.
The Senators have talked about rebranding for a couple seasons now, and it appears that they have no ability to keep a secret. A new logo has leaked over the past month, and it is widely speculated that it is in fact the Senators' new brand. It is basically the same as the Senators original logo but with a couple slight variants.
On July 23, the National Hockey League's newest team announced its name for the first time. We also got to see the Seattle Kraken logo and uniforms. Not long before this day, the Key Arena was officially renamed Climate Pledge Arena. With this information, we can now begin to make concepts for their future center ice.
With talks ramping up about a return of hockey and completion of the 2019-2020 season and playoffs, lets take a look at how this might look on ice. Currently the rumblings state that each division could play in a central location, and while this is in no way official, three of those four sites have been discussed by the league in recent meetings with teams.
