The Las Vegas Wranglers are a professional ice hockey team based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Wranglers were founded in 2002 as an expansion team in the West Coast Hockey League to begin for the 2003–04 season. The WCHL was absorbed by the East Coast Hockey League to form the ECHL and the Wranglers along with the former members of the WCHL were awarded expansion franchises in the ECHL. They are a member of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the ECHL. The Wranglers have played all eight of their seasons at the Orleans Arena, which is attached to the The Orleans Hotel and Casino.

The Wranglers have qualified for the Kelly Cup playoffs seven times in eight completed seasons and were the runner-up in the 2008 Kelly Cup finals, losing to the Cincinnati Cyclones in six games.

Las Vegas made their first playoffs in their inaugural season of 2003–04. The Wranglers worst season was the 2004–05 season in which they finished in seventh place in the National Conference's West Division with a record of 31 wins, 33 losses and 8 losses in overtime or shootouts. The Wranglers won their first division title in 2006–07 when the won the National Conference's Pacific Division with a record of 46 wins, 12 losses and 14 losses in overtime or shootouts, a record that earned the Wranglers the Brabham Cup as the team in the ECHL with the best record during the season.

  1. Code explanation; GP—Games Played, W—Wins, L—Losses, T—Overtime/Shootout losses (worth one point), GF—Goals For, GA—Goals Against, Pts—Points
  2. The result of the playoff series with Wranglers' result first no matter of the outcome, followed by opposite team in parenthesis.
  3. Due to the Fresno Falcons folding during the 2008-09 season, the Wranglers and the Ontario Reign played an unbalanced schedule of 73 games compared to the 72 that the Bakersfield Condors and Stockton Thunder played which is the league's standard. Due to the unbalanced schedule, the Pacific Division standings would be based on Winning percentage instead of points earned. The final standings were: 1-Ontario (.562), 2-Las Vegas (.521), 3-Bakersfield (.514), 4-Stockton (.493).
