Blizzard, Yeti among finalists for Utah’s NHL team name

Arizona Coyotes logo

The list of candidates for Utah’s NHL team name was whittled to six on Thursday.

Blizzard, Mammoth, Outlaws, Venom, Yeti and Utah Hockey Club (Utah HC) made the initial cut after 520,000 votes from fans.

Round two of the voting to select the winning name runs through June 20.

The NHL announced in April that the Arizona Coyotes are moving to Salt Lake City but leaving the Coyotes name in the desert.

Whatever name eventually is selected will not make its debut until the 2025-26 season, with the logo, colors and mascot to be introduced that season.

This fall, the players will take the ice in jerseys that say UTAH and wear them throughout the first season before transitioning to the new name in 2025-26.
