About a week ago we learned Las Vegas fans will not have the opportunity to vote on the final name of our brand new team. The Creator and his staff submitted nine team names to the league for approval and they will follow through and select one in the coming weeks.
Many have speculated what those nine names may be. We know Black Knights and any variation of the name is on the list, but the remaining names are a mystery. We’ve done concepts for names like Aces, Rat Pack, Venom, Headliners, and more, but there’s always been one name that we feel like we’ve ignored.
It’s a long standing tradition in professional sports history to take the name of a previous minor league franchise and use it as the new name for a major league team (see Vancouver Canucks, Miami Marlins, Detroit Tigers, etc.). So why not name the team after Las Vegas’ longest running minor league hockey team, the Wranglers?
SinBin.vegas’ superstar graphic designer and the driving force behind all of our concepts, Isaac Palestino, took the old name and gave it a brand new look.
