The Chicago Wolves, AHL affiliate of the St Louis Blues, revealed their specially designed alternate logo this week commemorating their 20th season of professional hockey.
The Wolves switched affiliation from the Vancouver Canucks to the St Louis Blues this offseason.
The four stars on the Wolves design represent the International Hockey League’s Turner Cups won in 1998 and 2000 and the American Hockey League’s Calder Cups won in 2002 and 2008.
The 20th Season logo will be used throughout the 2013-14 schedule in a variety of ways, including being painted at center ice when the Wolves host their home opener at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Allstate Arena. The players will wear a 20th Season logo patch on their
home, road and alternate jerseys.
“We plan to integrate the 20th Season celebration into our trademark game presentation on and off the ice,” said Mike Gordon, the Wolves president of business operations.
The Chicago Wolves and their collection of top St Louis Blues prospects open the season Friday October 4th. Their home opener is eight days later versus the same team.
