The last team in Nick Burton's WNHL series — a fictional Women's National Hockey League — hails from the Canadian capital, Ottawa. Here's what Nick has to say about the design:
Ottawa Nationals — The nation's capital takes the name Nationals to show its pride. It drops the black from the Senators scheme to give the team a more classic look. The logo is a maple leaf, with a sublimated Peace Tower inside the leaf. The maple leaf used for the logo is the same from the old Nationals team of the WHA, just updated.
The six-part Women's National Hockey League from Nick Burton continues this week with the Quebec City Wolves. From Nick on the origin of the design:
Québec Wolves/Loups du Québec — The team takes the color scheme of the Quebec Nordiques. The unused logo of the Nordiques was to be a wolf, so the team takes the name Wolves. The logo is an edited Minnesota Timberwolves logo.
Just one more team to go now. Check back next Wednesday for the finale. As for tomorrow... something "devilish" is in store.
