Hockey Quiz No. 4

It's was good to see longtime Hound Central 4.0 reader Brett make a return visit to our little monthly assortment of brain-teasers, thought-provokers and mathematical gymnastics. To his credit, he picked up right where he left off -- the first to successfully navigate the labyrinth of hockey knowledge.

He was the first of only two people to enter, though. Surely, these quizzes can't be that hard, are they?

Half of my mission is to inform, educate and promote the sport. C'mon, learning takes a little effort. I've done my part, putting these together. It'll take you less than an intermission to finish.

Name this Logo

Well, I'm thinking last month's logo, which featured a popular Russian club, proved a bit too easy. That's what I get for trying to slip one past.

I imagine this month's contestant, this striking artistic representation, might prove familiar to North American hockey fans. It looks like a face, but no one I've ever seen.
