In the 80s, Frolunda and their home arena of Scandinavium was known as Vilda vδstern i.e. The Wild West due to their gun-and-gun style of offensive and physical hockey. Who were known to roam the Old West? Cowboys and Indians. Cowboys was deemed to "violent" in nature, so they went with Indians in '95.

A fan site and fan club for the team is called Wild West Support.

What, you're not even gonna get to watch the play, you said
2 things:

PJ Axelsson is a 4th line player in the SEL now!?!

And, that is a GREAT story about the team name.
