If your young hockey fan is starting to grasp the game and is learning to count, I may have a way to combine their passion for the game with some learning. Found on a number of sites today and across the Twittersphere, here is your NHL counting chart!
According to historical documents and facts, back on this date in 1997, Peter Karmanos announced to the world that the Hartford Whalers would be leaving the city of Hartford for greener pastures for the 1997-98 season. Along with ripping one of the Adams Division's most beloved underachieving teams out of Connecticut, the fantastic Whalers logo would cease to exist on merchandise as the city of Hartford fought and won the rights to the logo from the NHL for the next ten years.
Needless to say, I miss the Whalers. I loved that logo, and it needs to return along with the Nordiques' logo as well. Megan Fox is wearing that logo well!
