This past October the Western Hockey League’s Saskatoon Blades ran a jersey design contest giving a fan an opportunity to see their creation come to life and be worn on the ice for the Blades’ game against the Swift Current Broncos on February 2nd.
Today the Blades announced the lucky winner, Fabio Burà who wins a team autographed version of his jersey as well as tickets. Fabio’s jersey was chosen via a fan poll amongst four other finalists and was the clear winner according to the Blades.
Burà’s design features a logo he designed, a “Blades” wordmark in which the “L” is also a hockey stick with tape, “SASKATOON” below. A nearly impossible to see maple leaf appears in the top left of the “B” on “Blades”. A shoulder logo was also designed by the winner, crossed hockey sticks and a maple leaf (did you know they were from Canada?) with the team name around it in a round logo.
The other finalists jerseys are shown below… did the Blades fans make the right choice? Have your say in our comments:
