The IceHL will have a new team in Hawaii next season! After four rounds of polls, voters have decided to name the club Honu — Hawaiian for the native green sea turtle. Our final poll will determine the team's full name.
Results are hidden until the poll closes. The bracket ends on Sunday night. Happy voting!
The Honu will be based in Honolulu, Hawaii. However, to prevent a repeat of the "Calgary Cavalry" debacle, we will not be considering Honolulu as a locator for this team.
Instead, you may choose between Hawaii and Oahu, the island on which the city is located.
What's next? On Monday, the winning name of the new team will be officially revealed! Then on Tuesday I'll begin accepting logo design submissions. Check back for details on how to submit your work.
The logo submission window will last about four weeks, longer than any in IceHL history. There are a couple reasons for this. First, I'll need the extra time to organize the naming of our Division A IceHL World teams. In addition, I'll be away for a time in June with limited web access. More details to come.
