NEW­FOUND­LAND GROWLERS | 2018-19

AS SOON AS THE logo was re­leased, there was a ton of hype over the new ECHL edi­tion from New­found­land. The an­tic­i­pa­tion was worth it.

On top of that ex­cel­lent crest, the Growlers also have a sharp shoul­der patch with a styl­ized ‘G’ sit­ting on a com­pass-like cir­cle. The north­east­ern por­tion is em­pha­sized, rep­re­sent­ing the prov­ince’s geo­graphic spot in North Amer­ica.

Though the Growlers are af­fil­i­ated with the Toronto Maple Leafs, their color scheme is closer to that of the Ve­gas Golden Knights. The rea­son? Those col­ors rep­re­sent the prov­ince’s mil­i­tary his­tory through the Royal New­found­land Reg­i­ment.
