Talk about instant success. Established in 2017, the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, the first major professional sports franchise based in Las Vegas, had an immediate impact upon the National Hockey League. In their maiden campaign of 2017-18, the Knights drew 739,740 fans and checked off a whole lot of ‘firsts’: first NHL expansion team to win eight of their first nine games; first expansion team to reel off eight straight wins; first team since the Edmonton Oilers and Hartford Whalers in 1979-80 to reach the playoffs in their inaugural season; first expansion team in major sports to win its division in season No. 1. Vegas would go on to reach the Stanley Cup Finals, eventually falling to the Washington Capitals in five games. Jump on the bandwagon while the team’s still young; grab your Vegas Golden Knights tickets at StubHub.
Vegas Golden Knights Info
Where do they go from here? An astounding 51-24-7 finish, the Pacific Division title and a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals all added up to the strongest debut season for an expansion team in North American professional sports history. Forward William Karlsson proved invaluable in the franchise’s first season in the league. The Swede would finish as a runner-up for the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top scorer, his team-leading 43 goals placing him third behind only Patrik Lane (44) and Alexander Ovechkin (49). He also led Vegas in overall points with 78.
Vegas Golden Knights History
Some folks in Sin City might wonder where the Golden Knights got their name. In fact, it’s an homage to team owner Bill Foley’s alma mater: the Black Knights of West Point. The team used “Golden” because Nevada is the largest gold-producing state in the country.
