    I think it's called "NHL Font that only the NHL has"

    Yes, and with the 24% rollback, the League could afford the accents at the tops of the letters.

    Unless you have a super word processor that can write diagonally, I don't think knowing the font would help you anyway.

    Yeah... who needs a font anyway? It's just 3 letters, I'm sure they just added the accent's themselves, whoever made it for em'.
     

  7. LOL, apparently diffuser is not familiar with the super-secretive WordArt function either.
     
  8. I think you meant to say, "I don't know."

    I think Scugs is likely right. Other than the wedge-like serifs, the typeface is pretty nondescript. I would guess the designing modified a standard font and added the wedges to complement the bottom-to-top flow.

    I doubt a complete font exists. If it did, you would think the NHL would use it somewhere other than the logo.

    You could always try asking on the message boards at Font-Finder.com or on the Usenet at comp.fonts.
