The Whalers beginnings were in the WHA in 1971 and in New England for 7 years before moving to Hartford, Connecticut. Their only logo is a rich logo with items from the area of a fishing rope as the border of the logo and a whale harpoon across the center of the logo.
1973 - 1979
The original Whalers logo featured a harpoon going through a white “w” on a green circle. A wordmark “NEW ENGLAND WHALERS” in black on a white circle. Surrounding the white circle is a green looking rope as a border.
