These three were registered as several different domain name by the owner's company: Desert Hawks, Red Hawks, Nighthawks.

 

Can't imagine Chicago will be happy about that.

Turns out this isn't happening, and probably for the best.

 

The name will be either Desert Knights, Golden Knights or Silver Knights

Both logos are pretty blah to me. I don't like the secondary at all. The primary's gold should be much brighter (not as muted), and I really don't get the turquoise color.

I like the first logo. The helmet with the V looks pretty neat.

Yep. Not very creative. You could have had real fun with a Vegas team name.

Sinners
Insomniacs
Wild (Nothing about Minnesota screams "wild")
Aces
Lucky 7s
Mobsters
86ers (I've read the restaurant term for "cut off" or "run out", 86, is derived from what the mob did to people they wanted "cut off". Taken 8 miles out into the Vegas desert. Left 6 feet under. Graves are also typically 8 feet long and 6 feet deep.)
Wolfpack (Hangover reference)

Golden Knights. Stupid. How do you market that?

I'm sure Caesar's Palace can find a way. And isn't there an Excalibur Casino out there?
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

The name and that first logo makes me think more if Medieval Times than it does hockey.

And Sean, yes, there is an Excalibur Hotel/Casino there.

Lemme get two claps and a Ric Flair
