Behind the Logo

Written by

We have been getting a few questions concerning our logo. What does it all mean? Why is it like that? Well it's all simple really. We wanted to have a logo that would incorporate hockey with a shortened version of our name. This eventually led to an acronym with hockey sticks used to form the T, and a hockey helmet sitting on top of the R.

We originally though of THR (The Hockey Resource) but since this is an online website, we started calling the project The Hockey online Resource (THoR).  This obviously brought up relations to Thor, the mythical norse god which in our opinion would make quite the power forward.

Due to this resemblance we decided to add wings to the hockey helmet (typical of modern Thor illustrations including the Marvel version of the character) and a hockey puck to represent the o. The puck can be seen as part of the acronym or not. Some interpret the logo as The Hockey Resource (THR) others as The Hockey online Resource (THoR), in the end, there is no right or wrong way!

For the record, it was all Stéphane's work so if you like it, give him a thumbs up!

 

Here are some different versions of the logo used throughout the internet.

About Us

Written by

The Hockey online Resource - THoR 

ThoR was started as a hobby project.

Objectives

Its objective is to be an online resource where amateur hockey players can find useful information about hockey. Being news, tips & tricks, equipment reviews or just general information about hockey. Another goal is to help people who are new to the game become better hockey players. It is often hard for adults and young adults that have never skated in their life to become hockey players, therefore this site is there to provide help so those people can succeed.

 

Who we are?

We are just two normal guys that have been playing hockey all their lives. We are hockey enthusiasts that realize that for regular people, hockey is very expensive. Therefore we want to find the best quality equipment you can get for your money. Also we know that if your an amateur like us, you don't always need the super expensive and shiny new piece of equipment. Depending on which kind of league you play in and what kind of player you are, you have different needs in terms of equipment.

Plus we want to provide a good source of information for coaches and new players alike. We have hockey knowledge and we know people around us that have many years of hockey experience and it's that knowledge that we want to share. Because hockey is a great game and it can be enjoyed by everybody!
