GRAND FORKS -- The finalization of the University of North Dakota's Fighting Hawks logo is about two weeks behind schedule.

Director of Brand Strategy and Development Conor O'Flaherty of SME Inc., the company working with the school to create the logo, said the delay is due to UND's men's hockey team competing in and winning the Frozen Four championship last month.

O'Flaherty said this means the logo will be finalized in mid-June instead of late May, but the change won't have any impact on the planned rollout for the next school year.

UND played under the Fighting Sioux logo until December 2012. The Fighting Hawks nickname was announced in November.
