The owner of the Jets logo is currently the NHL, since they own the Coyotes.


Not if Barry Shankarow held onto the logo and name when he sold the team in 1996. I've read before that he did and that True North wasn't looking to pay him for the rights.

I don't think so because I'm pretty sure the reason no Whalers merchandise was being made until recently even though there was plenty of demand for it was because the city still owned the rights to that stuff.


I was told something similar a few years back. At the NHL Store in Manhattan I was surprised at the lack of Whalers stuff. A clerk told me it was because either the City of Hartford or the state of Connecticut owned the rights and weren't letting anyone put the logo on anything except for pucks and crappy stuff like that. Glad to see they've recently let up on that.
