Owner of the relocated Arizona Coyotes to Utah, Ryan Smith, claims a lengthy list of possible nicknames has been narrowed down to a final four.

There are currently four teams competing in the conference finals of the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but only four names remain on a long list of possible names for the Utah hockey team, according to the league's newest owner.
Ryan Smith, who bought the Arizona Coyotes and relocated them to Salt Lake City, gave an update on an online poll featuring 20 possible nicknames for Utah HC today on the Pat McAfee Show. Smith stated there will be an announcement soon but did not mention all four. However, he made special mention of the Utah Yeti and Mammoth.
"We've got our fourI think Mammoth is up there, I think Yeti is up thereit should be good."

Along with these two, the online vote included a number of additional names, such as Outlaws, Venom (there are seven different types of dangerous snakes in Utah), Blizzard, Fury, Caribou, and Black Diamonds.
"Black Diamonds, Frost, Powder -- Utah's new #NHL team has released its list of *20* finalist team names and the details on their uniform design process.

Full list of team names and where you can vote on your choices in my story here: "

"Utah hockey team's (real) list of potential names. People can vote!"

Smith has said that he would be willing to stick to Utah HC for the 2024-25 season in order to get the name right. That seems like a huge missed opportunity for merchandise sales.
