Gotta See It: NHL logo history in 85 seconds

An awesome new video shows a geographical time lapse of the all NHL logos since inception.

Ann Frazier has done us all a favour.

In her YouTube-uploaded video titled “NHL Through the Years,” Frazier creates a geographical time lapse of all NHL logos since the league’s inception in 1917.

We see the Toronto Arenas become the St. Pats become the Maple Leafs; the Atlanta Flames morph northwest to Calgary; the New York Islanders become Captain Highliner’s favourite team; and the L.A. Kings get more makeovers than an L.A. commoner.

Simple yet enchanting stuff that’s worth 85 seconds of your life:

Not only does the time lapse illustrate the expansion of the NHL and the frequently altering logos of some of the identity-crisis-suffering clubs within, it is wonderfully set to “Brass Bonanza,” the longtime theme song of the now transposed Hartford Whalers.
