Newest Pro Hockey Franchise to be Named CutthroatsMay 17, 2012 - Central Hockey League (CHL) Denver Cutthroats
The Cutthroats will bring professional hockey back to the Coliseum for the first time in 13 years, hosting 33 regular season games. The team's colors consist of green, blue, red, and white, and the team took its name in honor of the state fish of Colorado - the Greenback Cutthroat Trout.
"It's a great looking logo that really incorporates a lot of what the state of Colorado is about," said head coach Derek Armstrong. "Colorado has always been an active state with beautiful scenery and the logo focuses on that between the Cutthroat Trout, the mountains, the water, and the colors. There's no other logo like it in hockey."
The Denver-based company, Adrenalin, had the responsibility of developing the team's logo and color scheme.
"We wanted to be sure the logo included elements and colors that depict the state of Colorado and the city of Denver," said Adrenalin President Dan Price. "The trout maintains a position between white mountain peaks and river rapids, and breaks through a forward moving 'D' - representative of Denver's progressive population."
The Cutthroat Trout was named Colorado's state fish in 1994.
The team's official Facebook (facebook.com/DenverCutthroats) and Twitter (@DEN_Cutthroats) pages have also launched today. The Cutthroats official website, http://www.denvercutthroats.com, is currently under construction and will go live later this summer.
