Just a brief note here. We've got three leagues to cover with the CHL so you can help decide in what order we do them. In the sidebar is a poll that will be open for two weeks. Cast a vote for the league of your choice. The league with the most votes will go first. The league with the fewest will go last. Your choices are OHL, QMJHL and WHL. Vote now!
Tournament of Hockey Logos

CHL logo voting will begin Friday, March 14!
All right, I've finally worked out the schedule to bring logo voting back to ToHL. We're going to dive in with the CHL after I get back from my trip to Vancouver. Look for the new tournament to begin Friday, March 14.
We'll do all three leagues individually followed by a poll in which the champions from each league face off for the title of Best Logo in the CHL. I apologize for the delay, but I'm getting this back on track now. So stay tuned!
Just wanted to take a second to let you all know I haven't forgotten about this site. Plans to start up a new tournament are in the works, but it's a lot of work and I've had a rather hectic schedule lately. Sounds like the majority of you are looking forward to a CHL tournament. That's probably what we'll be doing. We'll do one league at a time culminating with a final poll between the three logos left standing. I guess all that's left to decide is do I go east to west or west to east?
Also, it's a lot of logos to collect, so if anybody would be interested/willing to help me out in acquiring current, accurate logos, I'd be forever indebted. If you know a good site, post the link in the comments, or if you have images, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
I'm looking forward to getting the next tournament started!
Just wanted to congratulate the Moose on their win one more time. But just because we're finished with the AHL, by no means are we finished with this blog. We've still got dozens of minor leagues to cover. And as promised, the ECHL will be next!
Beginning Monday you'll be able to start casting votes toward determining the ECHL's best logo. The new bracket can now be found in the sidebar, so I'll take this moment to briefly explain it. As always, the combinations were determined completely at random (thanks, Random.org).
Like the AHL tournament, since we have an odd number teams, we'll have to do a preliminary round. As far as differences, since there are 16 teams in one conference and 9 in the other, I had to randomize each side of the bracket just to even things out. Also worth noting is the fact that the first logo from each side to advance to the third round will get an automatic bye to the fourth round. That's just the way it had to be.
If you've got any questions about the bracket, feel free to leave them in the comments area or email me.
So, look for the first poll to be posted tomorrow at some point. It'll be the Columbia Inferno and Cincinnati Cyclones.
In honor of the Battle of Connecticut going on in today's poll, I have a rare feature for the ToHL. Concept art!
Nothing much, but a reader came up with this jersey concept for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
Not bad. What do you guys think? And remember, if you've got an AHL concept art to share, feel free to do so. You can send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
