A new logo design has been unveiled by the Superior International Jr. Hockey League ahead of what will be its 20th anniversary season of 2021-2022.
SIJHL commissioner Darrin Nicholas noted that the new logo “really covers the whole spectrum. What emerged was a consensus on a design we felt would pay homage to our past but also properly represent our league as we head into our third decade.”
The final designs, submitted by Steve Cramsie, who also does some graphic work for the league’s Wisconsin Lumberjacks, incorporates a clean, modern shield look, bisected by the league acronym “SIJHL” with images representing the Canadian and American flags.
“We think Steve scored a hat trick with this final design, which preserves the history of our league, captures where we are right now and gives us branding that will accurately represent our league and what it stands for into the future,” Nicholas noted of the new logo.
The SIJHL is slated to usher in the 2021-2022 season with seven teams: Dryden Ice Dogs, Kam River Fighting Walleye, Fort Frances Lakers, Red Lake Miners, Thunder Bay North Stars, Thief River Falls Norskies and Wisconsin Wilderness. The Minnesota-based Norskies and Wisconsin are the league’s two American entries.
