Logo Controversy[]

When the team was established in 2008 the team chose the nickname "Frontenacs" which was the same nickname that the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League had. The controversy occurred when the team used a very similar logo to the Kingston team's logo albeit with different colors. The Illinois team did not get the permission of the OHL team to use the similar logo, which was a registered trademark with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. The OHL team did not register the logo in the United States and as the Illinois team didn't play any games in Canada the issue was not enforcable.
