It's been over 15 years since the Whalers left Harftord, Connecticut, but former owner Howard Baldwin is bringing a little piece of them back.â†µ
Baldwin, who recently took over business operations of the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack, will rename the team the Connecticut Whale at a press conference on Monday afternoon . Several different media outlets, including the Harftord Courant, have reported the news.
We'll just say it: the name "Whale" is kind of lame. Why wouldn't they just go with Whalers?â†µ
No word on what the logo will look like, or when exactly the name change will take effect.â†µ
