New American Hockey League team to be known as St. John's IceCaps

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - The new American Hockey League team in St. John's, N.L., will be known as the IceCaps.

Team president Danny Williams made the announcement during a press conference at Mile One Centre.

He also unveiled the team logo, which features the word "IceCaps" underneath an image of a snow-capped mountain.

The team colours are consistent with the parent Winnipeg Jets — navy blue, silver and white.

With the NHL returning to Winnipeg, the Manitoba Moose were relocated to Newfoundland and Labrador.

The IceCaps jerseys aren't expected to be unveiled until the team starts playing in October.
