NHL EXPANSION TEAM GETS A NAME: VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The NHL’s newest team is named the Vegas Golden Knights.
Owner Bill Foley and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced the Las Vegas expansion franchise’s official name and revealed its logo and colors Tuesday night at a gala ceremony for about 5,000 fans outside T-Mobile Arena, where the Golden Knights will begin play next season.
The Golden Knights’ logo is a simple front view of a fighting helmet with a conspicuous “V” in the middle. Their colors are steel grey, gold, red and black.
“Our logo and our name is really going to exhibit the highest element of the warrior class – the knight,” Foley told the crowd. “The knight protects the unprotected. The knight defends the realm. The knight never gives up, never gives in, always advances, never retreats. And that is what our team is going to be.” – READ MORE
