This is more a factual question than anything, but I’m putting it in CS since it’s sports related(sort of).
My memory is that Detroit got the name “Hockeytown” around the time they won their first recent Stanley Cup(1996). I seem to remember the commissioner saying he was glad the Cup returned to “hockeytown”.
Was it called that before? If so, how did this develop? When was it added to the ice at Jou Louis Arena?
I’ll add a little opinion part to it as well. Does it piss off other cities that Detroit is called Hockeytown or does no one else care about hockey? It is Detroit’s biggest sport.
