News Jersey Tournament: The Finale

It comes down to this. Hundreds began and now there are two. The final matchup in our summer jersey showdown pits the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux of the WCHA against the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL.

So yeah, there’s a bit of a theme.

The Fighting Sioux knocked off the venerable Boston Bruins in the semifinals after beating the London Knights and Rimouski Oceanic before that. Chicago continued its domination by taking apart the equally legendary Montreal Canadiens (who were last year’s logo champion), while the Florida Everblades and Ottawa 67’s were earlier victims (view the tournament schedule on The Hockey News Jersey Rankings and Tournament Central page).

Which squad will earn the crown? Both have Midwest roots and rabid fan bases, so it’s anyone’s guess. Chicago probably has the advantage, but don’t count out the underdog Sioux, who have taken on all comers so far.
