  1. Victoria Royals (WHL): Save-On_foods Memorial Centre --> Patrick Memorial Arena, named after the Patrick family who played a major role in getting hockey going on the west coast and bringing a Stanley Cup to the city of Victoria back in 1925. The "Memorial" is kept as it was brought over from the old Memorial Arena.
  2. Any news on a broadcasting partner?
  3. I finally went ahead and attempted to use the Sports Templates rugby template and tried Photoshop out for the first time. I attempted a concept for my rugby club for this upcoming season and I felt it turned out pretty well. I've already posted it for the club to see and so far the reactions have been very positive. I know there are some minor things that I need to fix for future concepts (like the placement of arm sponsor logos) but for a first go at Photoshop, I feel it turned out pretty good. As always C & C are always appreciated, as well as tips for using photoshop as I'm using this for the first time.
  4. Any news on when Nike and Canada will be releasing the new kits? I know that the women's team was using a basic kit for their most recent tournament.
  5. So The IIHF has updated their jersey section now with all the new jerseys. A lot of teams went to the new Nike template (produced by Tackla) Belarus: Bulgaria: Chinese Taipei: Hungary: Iceland: Ireland: Luxembourg: Mexico: Morocco: Netherlands: New Zealand: Poland: Romania: Serbia: South Africa: Spain: Thailand: Turkey: Ukraine: (not so much changed design, but upgraded to the new template) United Arab Emirates:
  6. I read somewhere that he actually opened up about the entire Nordiques thing. It had nothing to do with playing in Quebec City, it was more to do with not playing for Marcel Aubut, the Nordiques owner. Take it for what it's worth but either way, I think it worked our for the best for them as they got the key pieces that helped them to win 2 Cups in Colorado.
  7. A little disappointed that they kept the same brand. They could have started fresh with a new name, logo and jersey. Maybe timing was an issue and couldn't get it done in time for next season? Either way, Falcons could have worked or maybe use one of the names the Jets didn't use when they moved from Atlanta... Or maybe go with Winnipeg Thrashers (think there is a midget team already with that name) just as a running joke.
  8. Nanaimo was dead a long time ago after their referendum to replace Frank Crane Arena got shot down. Until they can get an arena that is completely privately financed, They won't be getting a WHL team... Which sucks because I would love to see the old Nanaimo Islanders return using the Gorton's Fishsticks logo
  9. Wasn't there plans to have the Jets AHL team play in Thunder Bay or has that plan fallen through?
  10. I'm going to say Ottawa for the new home, road and alternate.
  11. According to reports, this will be the final season for the Kootenay Ice. They will be relocating to Winnipeg for next season. Kind of unfortunate but I think the Ice have had some difficulty the last few years financially. Report: Kootenay Ice to relocate to Winnipeg
  12. Some updated images: New Zealand's black jersey (looks like colours are just reversed and no shoulder yoke), Bulgaria appears to have a new design as well. Iceland's white jersey, no change to Australia: Hard to get better pictures as they have only released 4 images of the games so far.
  13. The redesigned New Zealand jerseys in action and it looked like Iceland got new jerseys as well.
  14. New Zealand will also be getting new jerseys: The white is the new jersey, the dark was their very first from 1987. The new black one will be unveiled at the Div 3 World Juniors later in the month. "Inside the collar features the words ‘Ake Ake Kia Kaha’ – in English it translates to ‘Forever and ever, be strong.’ The phrase is part of a marching song made famous during World War Two by the highly regarded 28th Maori Battalion, along with being the haka performed by the New Zealand ‘Natives’ rugby team that toured across Australia, Egypt and the British Isles back in 1888."
  15. No. Nike does all the jerseys for the top divisions from U20 and up on men's and women's competitions. The lower divisions are done by Tackla and they usually never have their manufacturer logo on their jerseys (at least from what I have seen). If a team is relegated from the top division, they usually keep the Nike design and Tackla just produces it but with everything on it screen printed instead of sewn on (numbers and logos).
