Squall? Yeti? 20 names under consideration for Utah NHL team

NHL puck general view

Hockey fans in Utah have until May 22 to vote in the first round of balloting to help select an identity for the state’s NHL team.

The NHL announced last month that the Arizona Coyotes are moving to Salt Lake City, leaving the team name in the desert.

Utah Jazz owners Ryan and Ashley Smith added the hockey team to their Smith Entertainment Group portfolio, and Ryan Smith announced the fan participation on his social media.

“Utah’s NHL team is for the community and will be named with help from the community,” he said.

In the first round of voting, fans can choose up to four possible names from a list of 20, which was put together following a social media survey. Each fan can vote only once in the initial round.

The name options are: Black Diamonds, Blast, Blizzard, Canyons, Caribou, Freeze, Frost, Fury, Glaciers, HC (Hockey Club), Hive, Ice, Mammoth, Mountaineers, Outlaws, Powder, Squall, Swarm, Venom and Yeti.

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.

Come this fall, the players will take the ice in jerseys that say UTAH and wear them throughout the first season in Salt Lake City.
