I think because North Americans introduced and built up hockey in Scandinavia.
But today it's not much of that no more. Few teams in Sweden still use names like that. Brynäs Tigers, Frölunda Indians, Malmö Redhawks, Leksand Stars, Färjestad Wolves, Djurgården Lions, Södertälje Lightning, Luleå Bears, Timrå Red Eagles, Hv71 Blue Bulls, Linköping White Lions, Västerås Eagles.
In Norway a few also like Stavanger Oilers, Sparta Sarpsborg and Storhamar Dragons.
