Team confirmed our list last night, now hearing LasVegas has eliminated all 3 Hawks names & chosen something else. Didn’t like fan response?

UPDATE (2:55 PM, 8/12/2016) : Now this from Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Here’s the accompanying story to the Carp tweet.
So to sum this all up… the team name is one of these three, wait no it isn’t, but maybe it is. Thanks for visiting SinBin.vegas!
According to a report from the world guru on logos and team names, Chris Creamer of Sportslogos.net, the Las Vegas NHL team will be named Nighthawks, Desert Hawks, or Red Hawks.
There are three names the team appears to be moving forward with: the Desert Hawks, the Red Hawks, and the Nighthawks. These names were all registered as several different domain names by Black Knight IP Holding Company, LLC, the company owned by Las Vegas hockey owner Bill Foley within the last few weeks. -Chris Creamer
