Some Ugly-Ass Hockey Logos

As hockey fans may know, the Buffalo Sabres unveiled a new logo and jersey which has met with rather mixed reviews. The logo has already been named the ‘Buffaslug’, possibly because of its resemblance to a banana slug.

In response to Buffalo’s design gaffe, my newest sports blog discovery James Mirtle has assembled a big list of mostly non-NHL logos which are incredibly fugly. I think my favourite must be the spur-enabled hockey skate (blade-enabled cowboy boot?) from the Denver Spurs.

    I’ve only caught one snapshot of players on the ice with these jerseys. I had a feeling that I was looking at Pittsburgh and not Buffalo. Yuck.

    Wow. That is bad. Not only does it look like a slug but it looks sissy. Maybe “sissy” is too strong a word, but it certainly doesn’t look imposing. I think it’s the color…makes it seem weak…

    Darren – you’re in luck. Even though the Denver Spurs died during the 1970s, their logo appears to be making a resurgence with the Osoyoos Spurs of the newly revamped WHA. http://www.officialwha.com – click on link for Osoyoos to induce gag reflex.

    The logos are not the important thing …this new league has more kids playing a great sport and most importantly having fun. I watched a game Fri. nite and it was very entertaining. If you go to a game the last thing you will be looking at is the logos!!!
