With the 10 year naming rights deal expiring this past summer, and no known extension being announced, it is possible the Canucks could soon return to a renamed arena. Here is who we believe might be the front-runner, and fans are not going to appreciate it.
While we didn't get too excited over the Reverse Retro jerseys, this did lead to a few ideas for other uses of these new logos. What if we put them on ice. So head over to our Reverse Retro Center Ice Concepts to see these as they are added.
Our suspicions following the "Pepsi" branding omission in NHL 21 have now been confirmed. The home arena of the Colorado Avalanche has been renamed Bell Arena.
The Blue Jackets are gearing up for their 20'th anniversary season and they are kicking it off with a brand new commemorative logo. The Jackets have never used an anniversary logo at center ice as you can see by visiting the center ice archive. In fact, the only deviation from their primary logo at center ice was for a brief time leading up to the All Star weekend in 2015.
Many fans have voiced their love of the retro (throwback) jerseys the Flames have worn on and off over the past several seasons, and now it appears the team may be doing just that. If they do, 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.
