While the official press conference and announcement is set for Saturday February 16th the news came a day early and the Halifax NLL franchise will indeed be named the Halifax Thunderbirds. 

Last month Lacrosse Bucket reported that the NLL had filed trademarks for the Halifax Thunderbirds name as well as a few logos.

The Thunderbirds will start play next season as the current Rochester Knighthawks team moves to Halifax over the offseason. Rochester will receive an expansion team that will retain the name and branding of the Rochester Knighthawks. 

Halifax is one of two new teams coming into the NLL next season as New York will also have a franchise next season. The New York franchise is set to reveal their team name on February 17th at 1:30pm. 

Halifax and New York are just two teams in this second wave of NLL expansion under Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz.

The Halifax Thunderbirds have a live website already and you can follow them on social media @halifaxnll
