On Thursday, the Mavericks hockey team unveiled their fifth season logo in a team press conference that welcomed over 100 people. During the press conference the Mavericks announced their fifth season logo, their home-opener, and player signings.
The Mavericks fifth season logo is a shield-based logo with the word Mavericks on top of a 5, signifying the fifth season. The five is made up of a hockey stick and horseshoe. The design will be featured on the third jersey and the home and away jersey’s will have the design on one of the shoulders. The Mavericks season phrase is still “Give’ Em Hell” but will be in a slightly different font this year.
The Mavericks also announced four player signings: Sebastian Thinel, the 32-year-old forward who had a 96 points last year, John Scott-Dickson, the 29-year-old forward who played all 66 games last year, Andrew Courtney, the 28-year-old forward who had 36 points last year and Dave Pszenczny, the 28-year-old defenseman who is returning for a third season. All played big roles in last year’s conference finals round and all will play big parts in this year’s season.
“With these signings, we add four talented players that will be entering their 3rd full seasons with the Mavericks. They represent a strong nucleus that encapsulates what it means to be a Maverick,” said Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations, Scott Hillman. “They all have great character and are committed to the success of this franchise. We all have felt the heartbreak of the game 7 loss in each of the last two years together and this group is committed to help get us over that hump. We could not be more pleased than we are to have these fine men and their families with us as we enter our fifth season and strive to capture the CHL championship.”
The final announcement was the home opener, which will be played on November 2nd. The team they will play has yet to be announced but they will play at the IEC. The Mavericks will once again have a New Year’s Eve game and the remainder of the CHL schedule will be released in mid-August.
“Seeing the veterans come back and the team Coach Hillman and Co put together,” said Mavericks season-ticket holder and longtime fan, Tracy Rogers on what she is looking forward too next season, “Of course I love my fellow fans and I’m looking forward to the Sin Bin Army growing as well.”
