If/when the National Hockey League returns next month, 16 of the 24 remaining teams will be thrown into the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, a playoff round invented due to the sudden end of the 2019-20 regular season.

The Stanley Cup Qualifiers are basically meant to simulate the remainder of the season. The qualifiers round pits the bottom four playoff teams in each conference against the top four non-playoff teams in a best three-out-of-five series with each winner moving on to face the conference’s top four teams. Those four teams will be playing their own round-robin tournament to determine their seedings from 1-4.

With a new format comes an opportunity for new logos, and yes, the NHL now has a series of logos specifically for this situation.

The logos all follow the same format of the existing 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs and 2020 Stanley Cup Final logos with the final word swapped out for “Qualifiers”. The NHL has used since 2013. In French, the new round is being referred to as Ronde de Qualification de la Coupe Stanley 2020, which is reflected in that logo.

Each of the eight 2020 NHL Stanley Cup Qualifiers matchups will also have their own specific matchup logo, this again follows the same format as the usual Stanley Cup Playoffs and Final round “matchup logos”.

There’s been no date set yet for the start of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs however speculation has been that things could get underway in the last week of July. The league has set July 10th as a target date to open team training camps.
