3 years ago|5 views
On Wednesday, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made it official that the league is putting an expansion team in Las Vegas for the 2017 season. A state-of-the-art T-Mobile Arena in the city opened in April and is capable of seating 17,500 fans for hockey, meaning that the new team will have a home from day one. Over a year ago, the league also granted potential owner Bill Foley permission to launch a ticket drive in an effort to demonstrate the viability of the market.
