NHL Utah owner Ryan Smith revealed Wednesday that the franchise has four front-runners for its team name.

"Mammoth's up there, Yeti's up there," Smith said during an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show." "I think a couple other ones are up there. It should be good. … It'll be out soon."

Utah sent out a survey to fans earlier this month featuring 20 possible team identities. Smith previously revealed the team will wear jerseys with "Utah" during its inaugural season before introducing branding for 2025-26.

The NHL approved the Arizona Coyotes' sale and relocation to Utah in April.
