OHIO Hockey unveils 60th season anniversary logo


OHIO Hockey unveiled the logo to be used for the 60th season of OHIO Hockey. The team first hit the ice at Bird Arena in 1958 where “a standing-room-only crowd of over 1000 watched John McComb’s team debut against powerful and experienced Ohio State,” (Athena, 1959). OHIO would end up dropping that game 6-2. 

Since the first game in 1958, OHIO Hockey has grown from a club hockey program to a full-fledged NCAA Division I program and charter member of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA). Currently OHIO Hockey is a founding member of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) and one of the premier ACHA Division I programs in the nation. 

The logo features the outline of the state of Ohio and OHIO Hockey’s four Murdoch Cups, the ACHA Division I trophy given to the National Champions. OHIO Hockey won National Championships in 1995, 1996, 1997 and 2004. OHIO Hockey has also been in the ACHA National Finals in 1994, 1998, 2003 and 2017. OHIO Hockey has appeared in every ACHA National Tournament since the inception in 1992. 

“We are looking forward to a season-long celebration of the history of OHIO Hockey,” stated Head Coach Sean Hogan. “OHIO Hockey is a very special organization with a lot of history and we are all honored to continue that in season 60.” 

There are plenty of activities planned for the 60th season, including naming of “All Decade Teams,” and the Hall of Fame Alumni Weekend Jan. 19 and 20 vs. PITT. 

The 60th season of OHIO Hockey logo will appear as a patch on the yet to be unveiled 60th season OHIO Hockey jerseys. It will also appear on logo apparel through the season.
