The NHL is not one to miss a good opportunity to add a name to the ice, so the league announced it has created a new list of cruise ship naming conventions.
The list is available at www.nhl.com/cities and www.nbcsports.com and will be updated weekly.
There are currently 11 conventions being used by the NHL, according to the league.
Each convention is based on the cruise ship model and the length of time the ship is owned by a foreign cruise line.
The names are determined by the date the cruise liner was built and is no longer owned by the same foreign cruise lines.
The NHL is also adding names for new properties.
The league is releasing the names for the teams that will be playing in each convention on a weekly basis.
The team names are listed at www:nbcsport.com for the week of March 15, 2017, the date of the league’s announcement.
The list is updated on a regular basis and can be found at www.:nbcs.com.
