The team formerly known as the Arizona Coyotes will be called the Utah Hockey Club for its first season in Salt Lake City.

The sale of the team closed Thursday, transferring ownership from Alex Meruelo to Utah Jazz owners Smith Entertainment Group.

The franchise revealed its new look and drawings of its official uniforms for its first season in Utah in a series of social media posts Thursday. The team colors are identified as Rock Black, Salt White and Mountain Blue.

Utah HC is not the team’s permanent name, but it is one of six final options under consideration. Fan voting is open through June 20, with the other five options being the Blizzard, the Venom, the Yeti, the Outlaws and the Mammoth.

“Today is a monumental day for the state of Utah as we officially close on the establishment of a new NHL franchise,” said Ryan Smith, governor of Utah Hockey Club and chairman of Smith Entertainment Group. “The NHL has been incredible to work with throughout this process, providing us with invaluable guidance and support. We have a ton of work to do-training camp starts in less than 100 days-and could not be more excited about what’s to come.”
