So, a few weeks back, news broke that the Plymouth Whalers were being sold and relocated to Flint, Michigan. It was also said that there would be a fan vote for the new name of the team. Every article I read about this had tons of comments with people suggesting the name "Flint Tropics".... Why not that name? It comes from a popular and very quotable Will Ferrell movie which I feel would drive team popularity through the roof with casual OHL and CHL fans not only in Michigan, but North America as a whole. Semi Pro apparel and Halloween costumes have been popular since the movie came out in 2008. I love the identity of this team, even if it is fictional and ridiculous for a team in Michigan to be named anything tropical. I think a modernized version of this identity could translate nicely onto a hockey jersey so I wanted to give it a shot. I had a few early sketches for a very crazy third jersey and I needed a placeholder logo. I don't want to reveal that jersey just yet, but my quick little sketch logo actually looked like it would be perfect. It was a palm tree and doubled as a "T", so I've been playing with its shape and am looking for some C&C on the logo.
