While the team name troubles continue inside the offices of the NHL’s newest franchise, the SinBin.vegas jersey concept lab is running full steam ahead. Today’s offering is a name that’s a bit out there, but let me take a moment to sell it to you.
The name is the Las Vegas Peregrines. A Peregrine is a Falcon native to Southern Nevada. They are the fastest creature in the Animal Kingdom with the ability to fly at speeds of up to 240 MPH. And they eat Ducks… like Anaheim Ducks (click this if you have a strong stomach, it’s a Peregrine catching and eating a duck, it’s gruesome, but awesome).
I know the name is a bit out there, and I know it’s not a word commonly used in the English language, but neither was Bruin, Blackhawk, Seahawk, Timberwolf, or many other names that have entered our vernacular due to sports.
A Peregine has everything you can possibly want in a team name. Speed, power, connection to Las Vegas, and most importantly it’s unique. There’s no other team in the world named Peregrines.
So now that I’ve convinced you, here they are, the jerseys and logos for the Las Vegas Peregrines.
Couple things we should point out. First, take a look again at the bird, there’s an LV in there. Next, the P is a beak and there’s a hockey stick and puck in there too. Last, it’s pronounced “Pair-uh-grins” for when you say to you friends and family today, “Oh my god, did you see SinBin.vegas’ Peregrines jersey concept design, it’s so cool!”
The color scheme is Black, Gold, and Grey because the design was in the works before we got word that it doesn’t have to be those colors. So, feel free to visualize them with blues, greens, oranges, whatever you wish.
Once again, massive shout out to Isaac Palestino for designing these from scratch. Check out the rest of Isaac’s jersey designs here.
