[Update – this content has been revised to include the recent clinching of the Stanley Cup Finals appearance]
Though Las Vegas has been a long-standing mecca for sports entertainment, validation in the way of a professional, major-league sports team turned out to be a true test of patience. As many residents have experienced over the decades, welcoming a big four sports team always felt like it was just within reach, never to fully come to fruition.
Enter the Vegas Golden Knights.
From long-shot to the year’s best feel-good story, the Knights have proven what residents have always known – Las Vegas is an ideal city for major sports. Breaking nearly every expansion record in NHL history, the Knights’ marvelous story continues as they battle it out for Lord Stanley. Yes, the most difficult trophy in all of sports is being competed for by a year-one team – our Vegas Golden Knights.
From record-breaking performances on the ice to heartfelt community support, the Golden Knights have woven their way into the fabric of Las Vegas in a way that even the most faithful may have never thought possible. To reflect on just what has gone into this most incredible story of recovery, endurance, persistence and pride, we have created a timeline of some of the highlights from VGK’s inaugural season.
Join us as we reflect on our quest for the cup. Go Knights Go!
