OHL's London Knights new "retro" logo


DEAD!

Recommended Posts

Odd phrasing on the main page.

Those sharp-looking green third jerseys are done. The London Knights are planning a new look.

"Remember those jerseys that looked good? Screw 'em! Buy new stuff!"

The Knights have a perfect timeless logo, one that could pass for an NHL logo (even if the name "Knights" has a minor-league connotation) amidst bus-league dreck like the Sudbury Wolves and the Brampton Battalion. This older logo is a step down, and while the interlocking LK is clever, it winds up a little muddled in practice.

This is disappointing. I grew up a Knights fan, and lived through the Spider-Knight era. Seeing the switch back to green and gold was a god send! The colors and logo they have now are fantastic, one of the nicest in the league by far. This new retro logo that's splashed around the site looks way too dated.

The "sharp-looking green third jerseys are done. The London Knights are planning a new look" quote leads me to believe (or hope) that this new look is ONLY for the alternate uniform. I was never font of the green alternate with Knights across the chest, since Plymouth wore one that is almost identical to it.

This new look is permanent and the OHL isn't doing alternate uniforms next year. They're switching to the dreaded Edge sweaters and everyone is changing somewhat. We've also heard the Knights white sweaters are going to be a cream colour like the Minnesota all-star sweaters or Quebec Remparts, but no confirmation.

I don't get this, really. The last logo, updated from 1987-1994 was really crisp, it was probably the easiest recognized junior hockey logo, and they wore it when they won it all. This new one is a poorly rendered attempt at going back in time - the original was much cleaner and it didn't try to be cartoonish with the yellow striping that looks oddly like a smile a kid might like - and it just doesn't get a thumbs up here.

Booooooo. Huge downgrade. The Knights had the best logo and uniform set in all of junior hockey. The new logo isnt bad but it looks like a school logo, not a junior hockey team logo.
