In today’s ticker, we’ve got some Lunar New Year NHL warm-ups, a redesign in Major League Rugby, and more!
- Japan: The Hanshin Tigers will have just one cap design for the 2023 season, having previously had different designs home and away.
- A photo on the front page of ESPN.com of the last Eagles/Giants game happened to catch that Giants C Nick Gates had lost the “Y” on his helmet logo. (From Wesley Black and Hunter Gingras)
- The Canucks have new practice jerseys to match their throwbacks. (From Wade Heidt)
- Sticking with the Canucks, they also had a very nice throwback-inspired design for their Lunar New Year warm-ups. It is, of course, the year of the rabbit.
- And sticking with Lunar New Year warm-ups, the Kraken also had a very nice one. I love how they incorporated the rabbit and the red ribbon to form not just the outline of the team’s logo, but even included the logo’s distinctive red “eye”.
- Rumor has it that the Oilers could be bringing back this old Edmonton Mercurys sweater for the Heritage Classic, appropriately Oilerified. (From @ibramble)
- The ECHL has unveiled a new Kelly Cup Playoffs logo. (From Mike Chamernik)
- The Wisconsin Herd are bringing back their Wisconsin Curd promotion tonight. (From Brian Kerhin)
- New kit advertiser for the Sounders.
- Georgia: New logo (and kit provider) for Dinamo Batumi of Georgia’s top flight. (From Ed Zelaski)
- England: New Arsenal signing W Leandro Trossard will wear No. 19, which was last worn by W Nicolas Pépé. Pépé is still technically an Arsenal player, but he is on loan at French club OGC Nice this season.
- New logo for Major League Rugby side Rugby ATL. I must say, this is a pretty big downgrade.
- Here’s a breakdown of animal and meteorological team names across the big four of North American professional sports.
- Pink Floyd updated their social media avatars to a 50th anniversary logo in honor of the 50th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side of the Moon. Because the iconic cover of The Dark Side of the Moon features light refracting into the full spectrum of colors — i.e., a rainbow — the logo did too. You can imagine what happened next.
