LAS VEGAS, NV – Bookmakers in Las Vegas today released updated odds on what the name of the city's new NHL team will be. 

'Flamingos' was given outsider's odds of 22/1, the 'Black Aces' are listed at 12/1 and the 'Desert Hawks' at 15/2.

The shortest odds for the name of the NHL's newest franchise, however, have been given to "pretty fucking stupid", coming in at 6/1.

"We have seen a lot of money come in the past few days for that," the owner of one of Vegas' largest betting agencies said on Saturday. 

"Recent rumours have led to thousands of people handing over big bucks. We believe it's very well placed."

With the Ontario Hockey League's London Knights quashing the possibility of the Vegas team using the same moniker, rumours have continued to swirl that the name will still include Knights somehow.

"There's only one way this is going to end, and it's only going to be good for the bookmakers."
