Ottawa Fans Lobby for Logo Change


Aug 11, 2009

It is the NHL offseason, which means it's time for change. Most teams focus on changing their rosters.

The Senators, however, are taking some time to focus on fashion.

After debuting a third jersey in 2008-09, Ottawa fans are hungry for more — and graphic designer Jacob Barrette is taking things into his own hands with an Internet petition lobbying for a vintage "O" logo, which serves as a decorative touch to the shoulders of the team's current jerseys.

According to Yahoo Sports, Barrette believes that the newer, older logo could help bridge the gap between today's fans and the team's history.

"I think it's a good way to promote the history of the team and its roots in Ottawa," Barrette told the Ottawa Citizen. "I think they've done a good job of promoting the team towards kids, but I think they're lacking a bit in celebrating the heritage of having an NHL team in Ottawa."

Winning is fun. But it's important to make sure the players look good doing so. Hopefully, Ottawa will catch on.
