Just rename the NHL club "Nashville Admirals." The city's already got Commodores.

 

The nickname (Commodores) is one that the school's namesake, Cornelius Vanderbilt, had, as a shipping magnate. Nashville has no significant military maritime history, of its own. Couple that with the fact that UT may still be more popular, in Nashville, and Admirals makes zero sense.

It's official, the Wolves are the new Vegas affiliate.

Interesting to see they decided to forgo a West Coast team (Reno would've been a perfect location, but how do you put an ice plant in the Events Center?)

Wondering who #31 will be for the AHL (if they even do expand?)

The AHL and Blues have confirmed that there will be no expansion, this upcoming season. The Blues will continue to send the Wolves players, though I assume they'll work out a deal with one or two other teams, as well.

True, it's probably not at the point that Vegas needs a squad of their own just yet.

It should be so hard to get players to Vegas from the enormous international airport literally across the street from where the Wolves play.

Rumor is that the Colorado Eagles are looking to join the AHL.

The Avalanche might move its primary minor-league interests from San Antonio to less than an hour drive north of Denver, to Loveland, joining forces with the Colorado Eagles, who could become the Avs’ American Hockey League affiliate as early as 2018-19.

It looks like we'll have another new logo for minor league hockey in Columbus, Ga., starting in 2018-19.

This article makes it seem as though this is the same franchise as the Cottonmouths but that the now former owners do not wish to give up the branding.

This being the former owners who had legal issues with their logo or something like that?
