Hockey in Vegas
Hockey traces its roots in Las Vegas back to the year 1970 when the Las Vegas Gamblers joined the Pacific Southwest Hockey League. That stint however lasted for a year only and the Gamblers folded in 1971. Their place on the Vegas hockey landscape was taken by the Las Vegas Outlaws the same year. They began to play as an independent team. Unfortunately for hockey fans, they stopped playing in 1973 as well.
It was in 1993 that the Las Vegas Aces arrived as members of the Pacific Southwest Hockey League but they folded two years later too. A lot of teams came and went in the years that followed but it did not turn into anything. Hockey however was still making its impact in Las Vegas.
NHL and Las Vegas
September 27, 1991 was a big day for NHL fans in the Sin City. That day the Los Angeles Kings took on the New York Rangers in an outdoor encounter outside the famous Caesars Palace. It was a preseason clash that took place in the parking lot of the famous venue and the game was watched by a pretty sizeable crowd live.
The Las Vegas Thunder was a minor league side that used to be based in the Thomas & Mack Center. They remained there from 1993 and 1999. Then there were the Las Vegas Wranglers who played in the ECHL and were based at the Orleans Arena between 2003 and 2014.
Las Vegas has also hosted the annual Frozen Fury every year since 1997. 2004-2005 and 2012-2013 were the only two years when Frozen Fury did not take place in the Sin City and that was because those were two lockout years. Frozen Fury is an annual competition that sees the Colorado Avalanche and the Los Angeles Kings play each other.
It was in 2009 when reports began to surface about the NHL awarding an expansion franchise to Las Vegas. That did not turn into anything substantial though. In 2014, reports began to resurface. The media reports began to generate pace and on February 10, 2015 a season tickets drive was initiated. People interested in the season tickets of the prospective franchise had to put up a 10% deposit. The target was 10,000 deposits and that target was reached in April.
Las Vegas gets a hockey team
The NHL then officially began to ask prospective bidders to bid for expansion sides on June 24, 2014. The Las Vegan team’s drive was being led by the Maloof families and Bill Foley. After successfully negotiating Phase I and Phase II of the bidding process, on June 22, 2016, the National Hockey League officially announced that a new hockey team had been awarded to Las Vegas.
George McPhee was brought in as the General Manager on July 13, 2016. The team’s home arena, the T-Mobile Arena saw ice being laid for the first time on July 30, 2016. The team’s name was made official on November 22, 2016 and Reid Duke became the first ever player in the Golden Knights’ history when he was signed on March 6, 2017. Just over a month later, Gerard Gallant was brought in as the head coach.
The management has been hard at work to get everything ready for the upcoming season. Since the Vegas Golden Knights are a new side, there is a lot of work to be done too. Hopes are high that they will not let the fans down. The support of the fans will count for a lot as well in order for the side to become successful. If you are a hockey fan from the Sin City, grab your Vegas Golden Knight tickets and root for your team live.
