The Humboldt Broncos name and logo were officially registered more than three years after the tragic Saskatchewan hockey team bus crash.
Junior A hockey club said in a press release that after the April 6, 2018 crash, many vendors began using the name and logo on commemorative items, including clothing and decals.
Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured when a transport truck missed a stop sign at a rural Saskatchewan intersection and got in the way of the bus carrying players and staff to a playoff game.
Members of the Humboldt Broncos board of directors began the process to secure the mark shortly after the fatal accident.
The club say the brand will reaffirm the team’s control over the logo and brand.
The logo was originally created in 2002 and features the team name in large green letters with a yellow border and an image of a bronco.
