World Expansion: Name Selection

UPDATE · Jun 27 · The time has finally come to select the names for the four newest members of the IceHL fantasy hockey league. Happy voting!

Logo design submissions will be accepted starting Monday when the winning names are officially declared. Get ready to get creative!

UPDATE · Jun 25 · Round 2 polls added for each team.

Last week the Icethetics community suggested some great names for the four expansion teams coming to the IceHL World next season. Now it's time to pick our favorites!

In consultation with the IceHL Design Council, we have brackets for each team containing 8 potential names. Over the coming week, your votes will narrow down the options until we reach our winning names over the weekend. 

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for details on the voting process.

As you may have noticed, there are similar team names spread across the different brackets. In the event that two teams end up with similar names at the end of voting, the IceHL Design Council will make the final decision about which to keep and which to change.

In addition, members of the IceHL Design Council will each have two vetoes to use against the winning names. In order for a community-chosen name to be rejected, two members of the Council must veto it. At that point, the Council will come to a consensus on what name to use instead. These are the rules for this voting process but my guess is we won't need them.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
