Rotating Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot at Sports Illustrated,

With so many goalies moving this offseason, facemask artists can bank on a backlog of work based on redesigns. The turnover hasn’t precisely been from A-to-Z but from Aebischer to Weekes comes pretty close.
While there hasn’t been a blockbuster deal like last year’s Roberto Luongo from Florida to Vancouver heist, several teams have tried to shore up their number one status. Not coincidentally, the Panthers helped themselves the most by pilfering Tomas Vokoun from the payroll-letting Nashville Predators and, in the process, moved themselves into the mix as a team capable of becoming the Southeast Division’s fourth different champion in four seasons.

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.
