Knights enter the American Hockey League for Calgary

The Calgary Flames have announced that they've decided on a name for their Omaha AHL franchise. However, you need a mirror to know what the name is.

The Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights. What the *expletive* is that? They couldn't keep it simple, they had to throw in something extra. Do you want to know what it really says? It's just Neb-ras-ka spelled backwards for some reason.
The Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben Foundation is a 110-year-old philanthropic organization with programs that focus on celebrating our heritage, recognizing and fostering voluntarism, and developing new projects that benefit the community, state and region.
The Knights are traditional to the American Hockey League. They were once introduced to the AHL in 1939.
