The name of the expansion Las Vegas NHL franchise that starts playing in the NHL next season will be announced on Tuesday November 22 outside of T Mobile Arena. I wish I could attend this event which is free to the public and get my merchandise right away (this announcement comes just 3 days before Black Friday,) but at work we now get the entire week off for Thanksgiving and I will be out of town that day.
I'm going to be getting all-in with this team, even though I live in lowly Manitoba, Canada. The owner of our local hockey team was run by the guy who is now the AGM for the Las Vegas franchise. Can't wait to hear the new name.

It is so amazing, the team name Golden Knights was only announced on November 22, 2016.
Less than 18 months later, the Golden Knights have won 11 playoff games in their first-ever season and are knocking on the door (one win away) of the Stanley Cup Finals!
This season continues to be one of the most amazing things I have ever seen in sports and it so exciting to be here in Las Vegas right now watching these Golden Knights games as I did tonight and as I will do on Sunday for Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals!
