PEI Rocket “Name the Team” Update

Written By:  •  Monday, September 3, 2012

The PEI Rocket of the QMJHL are still accepting submissions for their “name the team” contest in which they will pick a name sent in by a fan as their new team name for the 2013-14 season.

Earlier this week the club released the 20 most popular names submitted thus far, and they are as follows:

  • Abbies
  • Chiefs
  • Confederates
  • Coyotes
  • Cyclones
  • Highlanders
  • Icebreakers
  • Islanders
  • Jr./Junior Islanders
  • Mariners
  • Pacers
  • Phantoms
  • Pirates
  • Predators
  • Prince Edward Islanders
  • Reds
  • Riptides
  • Royals
  • Thunder
  • Wave


I am both surprised and disappointed at the lack of “Spuds”, “Potatoes” or any other potato reference (unless you count “Reds”, but that’s a bit of a stretch)

One stipulation the club has added since the beginning of this contest is that they will retain the “Prince Edward Island” or “PEI” locale name and will not be switching to “Charlottetown”.

Get your ideas into the team quickly, names are only being accepted until this Wednesday, September 5th – you can submit your name to the team via this link here.

      Prince Edward Islanders sounds really good !

  • Seth

    Confederates doesnt sound bad

  • Aaron

    I definitely like the Prince Edward islanders idea. I also like the fact they’re using the PEI to show it’s the provincial team, just like the BC Lions, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Colorado Avalanche/Rockies, New Jersey Devils, Utah Jazz try to do with their teams. Although no teams should be named after a state or province, this and the mentioned teams are the exception. I kind of wish Spuds was on the list though

  • Brendan

    Haha, that’s awesome to see that the idea I submitted (Prince Edward Islanders) is in the top 20, but I’m guessing I wasn’t the only one to submit it then. The Highlanders and Riptides names are other ones that I like, too.

    • Matt Marczel

      I submitted the Prince Edward Islanders name as well. I also submitted Predators and Mariners too.

  • Cole

    Prince Edward Island Prince Edward Islanders. Has a nice ring to it.

  • Thomas

    Royals! Prince Edward Island Royals! Its a very appropriate name for them.

  • Ryan

    I also submitted Prince Edward Islanders, believe it or not.

    Guess it was a popular (and obvious) idea….

  • Jean-Marie Blue Pale

    Coyotes! It will guarantee that they will never move from PEI!
