The Buffalo Sabres have updated an old favourite and returned to their Goat head logo.
There had been rumours that Buffalo would reintroduce their Goat head logo for a couple of months, and they didn’t disappoint. The Sabres unveiled the updated logo on Twitter, and it got the attention of hockey fans.
The past and present collide…

There were no drastic changes to the original goat head, just bolder and angrier.
It’s a pretty sweet-looking logo, and I assume that the Sabres will go back to their black jerseys as well. The new-old look gives me “foot in the crease” vibes, and that’s when the Sabres were at their best. Being from Toronto, the battle of the QEW has been a little lame for a few years; maybe a fresh coat of paint will motivate the Sabres to get things going.
Black and red are also the best colour combination in sports. I believe in having a psychological advantage with your jersey colours; we all see it in football. The New England Patriots may not have Tom Brady anymore, and the Las Vegas Raiders may no longer be the bad boys from the 70s, but opponents still stop to take a peak during warm-ups.
I fucking love the change; it’s lovely. If I cheered for Buffalo or gave two shits about hockey, I would probably buy one.
