PRINCETON, N.J. – The ECHL unveiled the official logo for its 25th Anniversary Season in 2012-13, making it the third-longest tenured professional hockey league in North America behind only the National Hockey League and the American Hockey League.
The logo has the traditional ECHL logo surrounded by the number ‘25’ enclosed in a classic circle flanked on the left side by 1988 and on the right side by 2013 with the Premier ‘AA’ Hockey tagline on the bottom.
The 25th Anniversary logo will be incorporated into league and team materials as the ECHL proudly celebrates 25 years of hockey, tradition and affordable, family entertainment.
The Premier ‘AA’ Hockey League began in 1988-89 with five teams in four states and has grown to be a coast-to-coast league that will have 23 teams in 16 states in 2012-13. The ECHL is pleased to welcome four new members for the 25th Anniversary season with the Evansville IceMen, Fort Wayne Komets, Orlando Solar Bears and San Francisco Bulls joining the League.
