The Utica Comets, the Vancouver Canucks minor league affiliate, are asking for fans to vote for the team’s first-ever mascot.
The options are a dog, an alien, or an astronaut.
The Comets likely got the inspiration of a dog as a mascot from Laika, a Soviet space dog. She was one of the first animals to enter space and the first to complete an orbit around the Earth.
Fans can vote online via this form, but it doesn’t appear Canucks fans will be able to vote. The form asks for the voter’s address and home state with no option of selecting a Canadian province. It only looks like voting is open to American residents only.
