Las Vegas Wranglers Jersey Concept

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?’ 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.

Supporting Pro Sports And Supporting Major Pro Sports Not Synonymous

A common theme referenced when talking about the validity of Las Vegas a viable expansion market is support. Fan support, ownership support, corporate support, pretty much anyone who will keep the team upright financially.

We’ve touched on the subject many times here at, but I keep seeing the same general correlationĀ popping up in articles and it finally struck a nerve.

Attendance and support for minor league teams, one off events, and tournaments being hosted in Las Vegas is in no way directly correlated to how the city will support a professional hockey franchise.

The most recent article stating this was from After you get through the off base assumptions, ridiculous conclusions, and factual inaccuracies made in the article, we get to their eventual point.

So can Las Vegas support pro hockey? The answer may be found this weekend, February 19 and 20, when the Mountain West Hockey League hosts the MWHL Classic at Sobe Arena in Las Vegas. Officials will be on hand to determine whether local hockey fans will turn out to support pro hockey in Las Vegas.

This may be “pro hockey“, but it’s not pro hockey. As much as I understand what they are trying to do (get people to believe supporting their league has impact on the NHL’s decision), this correlation has to stop. The Las Vegas Wranglers did not fold because of fan support, and even if they did, that has absolutely no impact on the success of an NHL team in the city.
