I really think that Hitmen is a terrible choice of name ( branding ) for the Halton Hills Minor Hockey Association. Im not sure if the person or persons that made the decision on the new name actually know the meaning of Hitmen. The Oxford Dictionary states that the meaning is ” a person who is paid to kill someone “. In another dictionary ” A hired killer “. Do we really want our team, image and children to be known as “hired killers”. I certainly know that I dont want my 5 year son to be known as a “Hitman”. Maybe the hockey association needs to sit back down and decide on a new name. Does the name change also mean that the players that are already established on teams are now going to have to pay even more money for new uniforms, bags etc ???

Beginning next fall Halton Hills rep hockey teams will be known as the Hitmen instead of the Raiders or Tanners. Do you think this name is appropriate?
