Icon48 Welcome. Vegas Golden Knights.

nhl.com is supposed to be streaming this, but I wouldn't be surprised if Sportsnet and TSN picked it up as well.


The speculation based on leaks, social media, graphics, and e-mails the team has sent out points to the team being named the Desert Knights.

Colour schemes from that same speculation are predicted to be red, some kind of gold(maybe beige/sand/tan colour). black and gray.

There is also speculation that the letter V will have a prominent place in the logo.

Hmm... red, gold, and black colour scheme? Prominent 'V' in the logo?

I think it's unfortunate they didn't stick with Wranglers

They're revealing the jersey too? I thought it was just the name and logo for now.

It’s too bad they didn’t do this last night so I would have had something entertaining to watch that was hockey related instead of the flames game

I'm hoping that every "s" in the name has a "$".

also pulling for a typo that changes them from a dry piece of land to a delicious piece of tiramisu.

Desert Knights is an awful name for a sports franchise, despite the pun.

Over/under on how many Dessert Knights jokes/mispellings we see in the next year?

I'm setting the line at at least 1/day.

I think much more importantly than the Vegas jersey/logo/blah blah is tonight will be our first look at what the new Adidas jerseys will look like.

Never noticed how much Thomas Gradin looks like Chris Pronger.

This whole experiment is so WWF. This has a Vince McMahon feel to all of this.

I wish they would just go with Knights. Team names don't need an adjective in them.

Reeks of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, that's for sure. Everyone will just call them the Knights anyway.

I'd be surprised if anyone called them anything other than "Vegas"
