The OJHL has announced that a new team called the Haliburton County Huskies will begin playing next season in Minden, ON. No uniforms have been unveiled, but they did release their logo.

For sure... it's one thing for a team like the Toronto Blue Jays to have a leaf as part of their identity.  But a junior team in a league that's more or less localized to a single Canadian province?  Seems a bit redundant.

Evidently someone decided that the AHL needed another "B-major club", because the Sound Tigers are now the Bridgeport Islanders;

I always thought that Bridgeport Sound was the geographic indicator for the team, and Tigers was the nickname. Now I'm trying to wonder what a Sound Tiger is supposed to be.

 

Also, love to see a team not playing on an island called the Islanders.

Probably one of the laziest logos and most uninspired identities ever created. 

 

EDIT: Actually the Belleville Senators, Iowa Wild and Ontario Reign are up there too. Man I never realized the AHL was this bad. I'm never going to complain about minor league baseball branding again.

Bridgeport, CT is located on the Long Island Sound, so that's where Sound came from in the name.

 

The new identity is awful -- I didn't particularly like the old name or logo (although I have a uniform from when they were blue/yellow/black in my closet) but at least it had character.

And it's confirmed, the Sound Tigers are now the Bridgeport Islanders with the leaked logo;

I am thoroughly unpleased with this; not only is it just not a great logo, but it's replacing a unique minor-league identity with yet another goddamned "baby *major club*" team.

Except the Belleville Sens actually look better than their parent club. Or at least they did before they promoted the red jersey to primary status.

They really could have just recycled the stick from the NY logo, and it would have made it a little better. Not by much, though...

Wow.  This is Crew-level stupid.  It looks like something from the concepts area of these boards, but definitely not one of the good concepts.
