New England Whalers
The New England Whalers began play in the World Hockey Association in Boston. They relocated to Hartford in 1975. When that league merged with the National Hockey League in 1979, the team moved to the NHL as the Hartford Whalers. This is because the Boston Bruins did not like the "New England Whalers" name so the league wanted the whalers to drop New England from their name. John Good designed this and the 1979-1992 logo .
John Good designed the original logo, but due to the team's poor performance in the early 90's, the team contacted him to edit the logo to make it look more "intimidating" . He refused, and they added grey to the logo and the team's color scheme.
After the 1996-97 season, the team relocated to Greensboro and became the Carolina Hurricanes.
The original concept for the team's logo was designed by Ken Loh , and the team was originally called the "Carolina Hurricane".
The logo was designed by Peter Thornburgh .
