Sports tycoon Ryan Smith wants hockey fans to cast their votes to help name Utah's new NHL team.

State of play: Voters will get to do so once in the first round and select up to four names from a list of 20 through a Qualtrics survey.

  • Options include Blizzard, Yeti, Mammoth, Venom and Black Diamonds.

What's next: The first round of voting is open until May 22 and subsequent steps will be announced later this summer.

  • For their inaugural season, the team will wear jerseys that say "Utah."
  • A name, as well as a mascot, colors and branding, will be chosen before the start of the team's 2025-26 season.

Flashback: We asked Axios Salt Lake City readers last month to tell us what they'd like the team to be called.
