The current Warriors logo is a hockey stick and a puck inside a stylized silhouette of a side profile of face framed by an Indigenous headdress.

Several sports teams have recently stopped using names considered derogatory to Indigenous communities, including the NFL's Washington Football Team, the CFL's Edmonton Football Team and the McGill Redmen of U Sports.

The Warriors said in a statement they would engage with stakeholders and community partners as part of the review process.
