New Sharks Logo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the San Jose Sharks,

The new San Jose Sharks Primary Crest, joined by eight supporting marks, is both a reimagination and a tribute to the original triangle logo used since the team’s inception in 1991.  The updated crest incorporates more Pacific Teal, the primary color of the Sharks, and emphasizes speed, strength and determination.  Smith, the designer of the original Sharks logo, created the new marks over an 18-month period in conjunction with Sharks players and front office.

History Of Gambling In Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Legends of Hockey Network,

Here’s a little rundown on hockey’s history with gambling. Hockey had two scandals back in the 1940s.
On January 30, 1946 Pratt was suspended by the NHL. Pratt was the centerpiece of an infamous gambling scandal. Babe Pratt was suspended for betting on NHL games involving games that didn’t involve his Leafs. Initially the banishment was forever, but Pratt later admitted his ways and promised not to do them again. After 16 days, Pratt was reinstated. The NHL would change its constitution shortly afterwards to eliminate any appeal process for players found guilty of gambling.

Emery Heads To Arbitration Today

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

There still could be a deal before today’s salary arbitration hearing for Ottawa Senators goaltender Ray Emery, but as of Monday it appeared as if the decision would be left to a third party.
The hearing, scheduled for this morning in Toronto, comes after weeks of talks between Emery’s agent, J.P. Barry, and Senators general manager Bryan Murray.
Despite the lack of progress between Emery and the National Hockey League club, Barry said there was still a chance a deal could be worked out before the hearing takes place or before the arbitrator releases a decision, which could come as late as early August.

NHLPA Delays Meeting With NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,

The National Hockey League Players’ Association is going ahead with today’s business planning session with one notable exception: its principal business partner, the NHL, won’t be attending.
The NHLPA’s stand is that it is “reviewing all aspects of our business relations with the league” and the joint meeting with the NHL is simply being postponed.
However, sources said the NHLPA was sending a message by “uninviting the league” to a gathering aimed at ways to better market the game and promote the players.
