The Detroit Red Wings made the choice to switch up the look that had been featured at center ice since the 1996-97 season (save for the special 75th anniversary season of 2000-01) at Joe Louis Arena and then the inaugural season at Little Caesars Arena.
The iconic “Hockeytown” wordmark was removed, and a larger logo of the Winged Wheel was featured.
“At center ice, we will debut a fresh, new look: the Winged Wheel, one of the most iconic logos in professional sports, will be prominently featured,” the the club said in a prepared statement after the announcement.
However, we’ve come up with a couple of fresh new designs that frankly, are a little more eye-popping than the current design.
Check them out for yourself.
