CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Lake Erie Monsters are now the Cleveland Monsters.
Fresh off their first Calder Cup Championship, the team made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon.
Mike Ostrowski, COO of the Lake Erie Monsters, said as the Monsters enter their 10th anniversary, there was no better way to incorporate the city of Cleveland even further into the team’s brand.
Already over the past few years, the team has integrated the letters “CLE” on the players’ shoulder patches, on the ice and on other merchandise. Cleveland was also incorporated into the team’s primary logo.
Also announced Tuesday was that the team will have newly-designed uniforms for the upcoming season.
The Lake Erie Monsters won the Calder Cup Finals back in June. It was the city’s first Calder Cup Championship in 52 years. It was Lake Erie’s first AHL title in team history.
