THN.com Logo Tournament: Group Stage

The Hockey News

The Hockey News

The votes are in and the preliminaries are done. The Hockey News extended 40 logo tournament bids throughout North America and we’re one step closer to choosing the best logo in hockey.

After weeks of ranking the different leagues from top to bottom, champions have emerged from Ontario, Calif. to Rimouski, Que., down to Florida and back up to Calgary.

With the league voting closed, we move on to pool play. The advancing 40 teams have all been slotted geographically into four groups of 10. This week, you will be able to vote on your favorite from each of the new pools.

From there, the top four per pool will be slotted into a single-elimination bracket of 16. Each week (view the schedule HERE) your vote will determine who moves on until we are provided with an ultimate champion.

Will the sentimental favorites, the Chicago Blackhawks, be the victors? The rabid fan bases of the North Dakota Fighting Sioux or Ontario Reign may have something to say about that.

The Boston College Eagles and London Knights also cruised to victory in their respective leagues, but, of course, there’s only one way to make sure your team continues on the path to glory…
