The team's logo was designed before a nickname was selected. The logo pays tribute to fossils found in May 1971 when construction workers working on the First American Center discovered bones of a saber-toothed tiger -- extinct for over 10,000 years. In a name-the-team contest after the logo was unveiled, the name Predators won out.
