Reign Need Fans To Make Logo #1
The Hockey News holding logo contest; 16 leagues, 1 winner
ONTARIO, Calif. – The Ontario Reign of the ECHL, proud affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings, needs the Inland Empire community and Ontario Reign fans to make the Reign Logo number one in an online logo contest hosted by The Hockey News.
The Hockey News, a publication that provides complete coverage of the hockey world, is holding a two-month Ultimate Logo contest that pits team logos against each other from the NHL to the OHL. Each hockey league will have the chance to have one of its member teams named as the best hockey logo in North America.
THN staff members selected ten teams from each league based on “uniqueness, impact and overall aesthetic” and now, Ontario Reign fans, it is your turn to vote! The Reign made the Top 10 list of ECHL logos and need your help to win it all. Visit The Hockey News and vote for the Ontario Reign.
Based on fan votes, the top 40 logos (at least one from each league) will enter the final logo tournament beginning September 1. Until September 1, vote often, tell your friends and may the best team win (the Reign that is!).
