Hockey of the North Atlantic, circa 1994.

Filed under: Hand Drawn Maps,Hockey — admin @ 10:26 pm


This is a map from my early days of sports maps, around 13 years ago.  As you can see, I was way more into the unbridled use of color and form, and less into accuracy.  I can remember, halfway into the map, deciding to put in minor-league hockey clubs, only to realize (pre-internet) that I had little chance of finding the logos for most of these small clubs.  So I improvised:  Ontario Hockey League trading cards I had helped; and for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League teams, I just used their names alone.  This map has teams from the National Hockey League; the American Hockey League; the aforementioned OHL and QMJHL; and the East Coast Hockey League.  Minor league affiliations of AHL clubs are noted by small logos of their parent NHL clubs.  The player in the map’s legend is New York Ranger goalie Mike Richter, in his 1994 All-Star team uniform.
