Looks like a cross between the Smirnoff logo:

The name is absolutely horrible by the jerseys and logos are amazing. I'm calling them the Faucons. I don;t care.

I am not sold on the name however. The Sherbrooke Phoenix. Le Phoenix de Sherbrooke...it just doesn't work for me. Sorry. I'm not entirely sold on the double blue as I feel it's already covered, but honestly, an instant classic logo. I love looking at it.

Name is awful...and not even French nor bilingual.

Jerseys and colours are awesome, though.

Who's your brother? I totally would've guess this was Slavo Kiss's (Sigma Kappa) work - seems totally in line with his style.

Regardless, the whole package looks amazing!

If you're interested, here's the website of the agency that designed the branding.

Awful name....... Just awful, the jerseys are great, they're so legit, sophisticated.

The colors are meh.... The name and the colors go hand in hand, blue for the phoenix ???

Like wtf ????? Everything else is perfect, but the name is awful which ruins the color scheme.....

From what I heard, every teams have to protect 12 players, and Sherbrooke will pick within other players. For the 2012 draft, we have the first pick of every rounds.

every team protect 16 players and sherbrooke pick from the rest. Also Sherbrooke will be allowed to have 5 overagers on their team in 12-13 + they have the #1 pick in the midget draft (or maybe theirs a draw with the worst team not sure? )

Daniel Audette, Keven Bouchard or Julio Billia are the guys who could be #1 but they aren't on they same level of a Jon Drouin.

Billia and Bouchard are goalies.

Can't believe there will be business lodges and a press box

They are thinking it 'big'.

Daniel Audette should go #1 overall. His father Donald Audette is also rumored to be in the running for the head coaching job.

IIRC, the name Phenix was already taken by another team in the Sherbrooke area-and they didn't want to run the risk of confusing THAT team with the other one.

As far as the jersey...I'm getting that one for NEXT Christmas.
