Minor hockey group changes name
The newly-formed Halton Hills Minor Hockey Association has bowed to public pressure and announced Friday night it was changing the name of its teams to “Thunder”.

According to the notice on the Georgetown Minor Hockey Association website, www.gmha.on.ca “We have received numerous complaints surrounding the name for Halton Hills Minor Hockey.…however our new name will be the Halton Hills Thunder.”

The announcement went on to say the player who submitted the name “Hitmen” will receive his prize as promised as will now the players who submitted the second place name
vote them out

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 ???
