It’s official that Las Vegas is getting its own NHL hockey team, starting with the 2017-18 season. This will be Las Vegas’ first major league sports team. The team will be formed by pilfering (i.e. drafting) one player from each of the other 30 NHL teams.
The games will be played at the new T-Mobile Arena on the Vegas Strip, which can seat about 17,500 people for hockey games. More than 15,000 season tickets have already been sold, so apparently this has been a popular idea.
The team doesn’t even have a name yet, and its players won’t be selected till next year, but some casino sports books are already accepting bets on how the new team will perform. Supposedly the odds of Las Vegas winning the Stanley Cup are set at about 100-to-1 against.
One potential name for the team that’s been floating around is the Black Knights, which doesn’t seem very Vegasy to many locals. The official name will likely be announced in the Fall of 2016.
I’ve never been to a hockey game as far as I recall, but I find it inspiring to live in a place that treats physical reality like software, always capable of being reprogrammed and upgraded. You never know what will sprout up next. Did you know that more than 2 million people live here now?
A new team will soon be playing ice hockey in a new arena in the desert. Why? Because some people wanted it badly enough and made it happen.
Your goals are probably easier. 🙂
