Vegas Golden Knights History
Born in 2017 as an expansion team, the Vegas Golden Knights immediately made history by making it to the 2018 Stanley Cup Final. No first-year expansion team in North American major league history had ever accomplished such a feat since the 1968 St. Louis Blues. And the Blues had the advantage of playing in a division comprised of fellow expansion teams.
As the first major league sports franchise in Las Vegas, the Golden Knights faced a unique immediate challenge. Las Vegas was shattered by the Mandalay Bay mass shooting at an outdoor concert a few days before their first-ever game. The organization dove into community outreach to form an immediate bond.
The Golden Knights have sold out almost every game they have ever played at T-Mobile Arena. Visiting teams and media members rave about the incredible enthusiasm and atmosphere at Vegas home games.
Vegas does everything in a first-class manner. Its broadcasting team is of network-level quality. Its team on the ice is a perennial Stanley Cup contender. Its management is openly doing everything in its power to win the Stanley Cup. Any other sport would be fortunate to have such a great expansion franchise.
