Las Vegas Golden Knights, NHL's 31st Franchise Name, Logo Unveiled

Realistically, what would have made the most sense was either moving the New York Islanders, Carolina Hurricanes, or Arizona Coyotes to Las Vegas.

Exactly five months after being awarded an NHL expansion franchise, owners of Las Vegas' new hockey organization will officially unveil the team's new nickname, colors and logo at a gala presentation Tuesday evening.

"I thought Las Vegas Golden Knights, four words, too much".

Foley said Tuesday, "We selected "Knights" because knights are the defenders of the realm and protect those who can not defend themselves".

"They are the elite warrior class", Foley said.

"Silver Knights was an option because this is the Silver State, but Nevada is the largest gold producer in the country", Foley said. That, at least, seems to make sense.

Las Vegas" new National Hockey League was officially unveiled as the "Vegas Golden Knights' on Tuesday. It remains to be seen what the three-letter abbreviation they use on scoreboards and league leader charts will be (yes, this absolutely matters to people like me!) VEG? VGK? VGS? And hockey players are warriors.

Jerseys for the Golden Knights will not be for sale until mid-February, at the earliest, Foley said. It is the first professional major league sports franchise in the city and the 31st NHL franchise, the first new NHL team since 2000.

"I guarantee you we will be better in the rink", shouted majority owner Foley, making light of the video problems.

A secondary logo incorporates the Fabulous Las Vegas Star paying homage to the Las Vegas residents while also underlining the team's commitment to the community.

Gronkowski isn't the only member of the Patriots to acquire ownership of a sports franchise this past year. When asked about how he plans to build his team, McPhee said they would like to build a foundation for their team in the expansion draft and free agency, and expects the Entry Draft to be where they hope "hit home runs". Kerry Bubolz was hired as team president in October after 13 years with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Quicken Loans Arena organization. The colors are black with a gold outline, as Foley had long preferred. They'll join the Pacific Division in the Western Conference and will select players during an expansion draft next summer.
