BRUSHING UP THE PANTHERS LOGO, 2016
Date: June 2, 2016
In 2016, the Panthers refreshed their logo for the first time in franchise history. Owner Vincent Viola remarked, “the logo harkens to the vanguard of courage; the idea that you put a shield on the hockey uniform. It’s something to protect.” His son, John Viola, added “it’s not necessarily a new direction, but a new evolution, a new maturity for the franchise.” To celebrate the new logo’s unveiling, artist Charlie Turano, III, provided his own rendering of it as a gift to John Viola.
