Hockey fans all over Las Vegas are cheering today for the brand new, official Las Vegas NHL team! Our local Vegas Golden Knights were granted the honor of being the first major professional sports franchise, and the conversation has already been opened up about a football team (potentially the Oakland Raiders being renamed to the Vegas Raiders) joining the ranks.
This new addition to Vegas‘ impressive repertoire of entertainment options could potentially bring in a considerable amount of tourism and travel business. With the buzz around who they’ll begin drafting already at an all-time high, NHL fans across the nation are already waiting on the edge of their seat to find out where the Vegas Golden Knights will go from here.
