The ECHL Las Vegas Wranglers have long been one of our favorite minor-league hockey franchises, from having strippers at the game to wearing ridiculous Santa themed jerseys to promoting "Rapture Night" and the final hockey game played on Earth. (Spoiler: It wasn't.)
On Monday night, the Wranglers were at it again. Returning to the ECHL Kelly Cup championship for the first time in four seasons, the Wranglers rustled up a sports legend to sound their siren at the start of Game 1: Iron. Mike. Tyson.
There was that moment after he cranked the siren in which Tyson looked around for what to do next, and it appeared he might knock it out with a right hook. Alas, he just smiled and clapped. This isn't Tyson's first mingling with hockey, having previously met Alex Ovechkin. For those keeping score, Mike Tyson has now been on the ice longer in a Cup Final than Ovechkin.
Who will the Blades call on for inspiration when the series shifts to Florida? Obviously, they need someone who can counteract Mike Tyson. Which means it has to be this guy.
