    Bottom one is too wolfish. Huskies are working dogs, not White Fang.

        I've always liked Northern Illinois' huskie logo; just change the letters and you're set: http://content.sportslogos.net/logos.../full/2886.png

          Here's one that I think is all right, though I would like it more if it had thinner and more complex lines (less "vectorized").

            I know Green Bay drafted him as well. Wonder if he'll stay put in Canada or come to the States and play in the USHL?

              I don't think a lot of Canadians play in the USHL. Plus with future Tech teammates there in Penticton, I'm guessing he stays north of the border. The BCHL is generally a half-step better than the Alberta league.

                Back in the 70s, the stacked MTU sticker was common on car bumpers and back windows. It was easily identifiable from a distance. It's still my favorite and I have a cap with it. The bill is black, the mesh is yellow, and the front is white with the 1-1/2" stacked logo centered and HUSKIES in black embroidery on each side.

                I did an extensive search of husky logos when we discussed this back in 2011. Northern Illinois does have a nice logo. Husky logos tend to fall into two categories: wolve-like and friendly (UConn). I've ended up being in favor of a simple paw print á la Clemson. It's simple, works well with the script, and is versatile in many applications. It would look good on the shoulders of jerseys. I'm not familiar with any other "Husky" school using a paw logo:

                    2011... 2013... 2015... Seems this is not a hot topic in even numbered years.
                    Friendly Huskies? In a word, NO.

                    Huskies fans can be friendly, but I don't want a friendly mascot and/or team... kick their ice!

                      So with the Stanley Cup finals starting tonight, it got me thinking - who is the last player from Michigan Tech to get their name on the Cup? Off the top of my head Randy McKay in 2000 I think is still the most recent. I thought maybe Conner or Scott might have snuck on as part season players, but Conner arrived in Pittsburgh the year after they won in 2009. Scott arrived in Chicago just after the Blackhawks won the cup in 2010 and had moved on to the Rangers before the Hawks won again in 2012.

                      I would like to think that Tanner Kero is in the best position to be the next one. If the Blackhawks can find a way to work the salary cap (maybe bring in some younger, lower price talent, *cough* Kero *cough*) they could be back in the Finals again soon when Kero is eligible to play.

                          I think a solid black running husky silhouette would go nicely with the script.
                          Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

                            Yep, it looks good, however, I'd skip the friendly husky on the front and just go with the script. I'd also go with solid black paw prints.

                            There sure are a lot of "Husky" teams. Maybe we should take that Michigan fan's suggestion and switch to the Bears... I think U of Maine is the only Bear school with a hockey team.

                              If we're changing the name, I vote we go with Widowmakers. Plus, then we'd have an official beer, along with a tie in to Copper Country history.

                                UConn's husky crosses the line from friendly to cuddly. More appropriate for a women's figure skating team than a hockey team.
