In an effort to improve the game experience for fans, the NHL announced Thursday that its players will now be able to upload their own logos for their own game websites.
It will take time for the NHL to update the official game logo to the new look and a website will need to be developed that utilizes this new format.
“The NHL is proud to introduce the NHLPA, the Official Official Fan and Player Organization of the National Hockey League, to the World,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.
“The new format will allow fans and players to create the very best-looking game pages they can.
This will not only be a great way to showcase the games they love, but also an opportunity to engage with our fans and help grow the game in ways that will benefit both the game and the fans.”
We hope this new feature will encourage fans to put their logo on the game page, so that the fans can have the most authentic experience possible, whether they’re watching a game on a television screen or playing on a tablet.
“As the game evolves, so will the game.”
The new logo will be available for use by fans in three different ways: by email, text message, or a custom page created by a fan.
It’s not available for public consumption yet, but will be soon.
The NHLPA is a fan-led organization, but Bettman says that the league is taking its time to develop the format, so it’s not a full-fledged fan-run league.
The team will likely keep the old NHL logo but have it removed for fan use, which is standard procedure for a fan club.
The new version of the logo is expected to launch sometime in January.
