Partner Post: VGK Playoff Tickets 3rd Most Expensive In Round One

With a 1-0 win in over the LA Kings first ever playoff game on Wednesday, the NHL’s expansion-team extraordinaire Vegas Golden Knights continue their miracle season. While technically not the first expansion team to reach the NHL playoffs, they’re the first to do so in the modern NHL expansion era, which began in 1991.
At 7/1 odds to win the oldest trophy in sports, their casino neighbors have also made them one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup–definitely a first.

As a result, demand for Vegas Golden Knights playoff tickets are the third most expensive in the first round. For tickets to Game 2 register on TicketIQ and use referral code SINBIN to get $20 off your first purchase. You can register here.

Having filled T-Mobile arena at 103% during the regular season, it’s been high demand since October when #VegasBorn was born. Whether or not the Knights are still playing in the June desert heat, the season has been more successful than anyone could have imagined. While Vegas is technically the 5th expansion team to qualify for the playoffs, they’re certainly the best. While neither the Whalers, Nordiques or Oilers made it out of the first round, they were also not truly expansion teams. They’d been competing in the World Hockey Association for years. Additionally, after the NHL- WHA merger, 16 of 21 teams qualified for the playoff, which made it hard to not qualify.

Stanley Cup Facts FAQ

Today, the Stanley Cup made what we hope to be one of many trips to Las Vegas over the course of the next few months. We had a chance to sit down with Keeper of the Cup, Mike Bolt to talk answer a bunch of questions about the world’s most famous trophy that were mainly sent in by you guys via social media.

How much does the Cup weigh and what is it made out of?

The Cup weighs 34.5 pounds and is made of silver and nickel alloy. It’s 35.25 inches tall.

How many Cups are there?

There are three versions of the Cup. The “Presentation Cup” is the Cup that travels and is given to the team that wins. The “Replica Cup” lives at the Hall of Fame in Toronto and serves as a stand-in when the Presentation Cup is traveling. The “Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup” was donated by Lord Stanley and also lives at the Hall of Fame.

How long does the winner get to keep the Cup?

100 days is the standard but it varies depending on the season schedule and the Cup’s event schedule.

What do cities display in their arena after they win?

Replicas created by the team. They must be smaller than the actual Cup.

How many names does each team get to put on the Cup, how are they chosen, and what are the guidelines?

A total of 52 names are allowed to be engraved into the Cup. Each person must have been with the organization when the team won the Stanley Cup. The organization chooses the names and sends them to the league. There is no minimum number of games a player must play to be on there.

How is it transported?

There is a “road case” with plenty of padding that goes along with it. Due to TSA guidelines, it must be checked on airlines. There have been mishaps with the airlines but normally it checks and makes it to the next destination without any problems.

Who travels with the Cup?

One of the Keepers of the Cup is present with the Cup at all times including on each player’s “Day with the Cup.” The people who travel with it rotate.

Not Ready To Reminisce, Not Yet At Least

The Vegas Golden Knights are headed to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Those are the words I wrote in a tweet on Monday night as the clock ticked down towards zero. Against all odds, those words were about to become a reality in the very first year in Golden Knight history.

I remember when Vegas Wants Hockey was an idea that was laughable to most of North America. I remember the launching of the ticket drive and Gary Bettman standing in front of the media with a sheepish “how the heck is this actually happening” look on his face. I remember the number reaching 10,000 and all you could hear were haters crowing about how Winnipeg did it faster, and I remember the owners’ meetings afterward where the word “expansion” was not even on the agenda. Then I remember when it was.

I really remember June 22, 2016, November 22nd, 2016, and June 21st, 2017. I even remember the little things like the day The Creator’s final payment cleared and the team was officially a member of the NHL, seeing Bill Daly hold up a card with the Golden Knights logo on it during the lottery, the signings of Reid Duke, Vadim Shipachyov, and Tomas Hyka before the Expansion Draft even occurred, and hearing the words “Vegas is on the clock.”

Yep, this really happened on September 17th, 2017.

I remember Development Camp, informal practices, and the time I had to watch the first period of the first preseason game on an iPhone because DirecTV couldn’t figure out that ATT SportsNet Rocky Mountain was now a local channel to Vegas.

More VGK Bobbleheads!

If you weren’t one of the lucky 18,000 who got Chance the Bobblehead (or if you sold yours on eBay because they are more valuable than tickets to tonight’s game), your bobblehead collection can still have a Golden Knights representative.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, yes that’s a real thing, released a limited-edition bobblehead of Marc-Andre Fleury. This is the first bobblehead ever produced of a Golden Knights player in the team’s uniform and it’s available now.

But wait, there’s more!

Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson bobbleheads will be available soon, followed by Deryk Engelland, Erik Haula, Nate Schmidt, James Neal, and Reilly Smith. Plus another Chance bobblehead will be available, this time in the grey jersey.

The Fleury one is on sale now, the rest are expected sometime this Summer.

Also, we should have one to give away soon, so keep your eyes peeled for the next edition of #HockeySquares.

Upper Deck Vegas Golden Knights Team Set Now Available

Earlier this season, we posted Upper Deck’s new Young Guns insert set featuring Vegas forward Alex Tuch.

With a limited number of Vegas players printed, UD explained to us that more VGK cards would be produced as the year went on. Well, the waiting is over. Upper Deck hooked up local fans with a 2018 Golden Knights Inaugural Season 15-player team set.

Oscar Dansk, Cody Eakin, Deryk Engelland, Erik Haula (twice), William Karlsson, Brendan Leipsic, Oscar Lindberg, Brayden McNabb, Colin Miller, Tomas Nosek, David Perron, Luca Sbisa, Nate Schmidt, Malcolm Subban, and Shea Theodore all made Upper Deck’s Inaugural Images commemorative set. Unfortunately, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare didn’t make the cut.

I mentioned Haula has two cards in the set, which is sort of true. The new UD Golden Knights commemorative set even comes with an error card. How awesome is that? Those of us who collected cards in the late 80’s all remember the highly coveted Billy Ripken error card.

Due to the events of 1 October the Golden Knights decided to cancel Fan Fest and instead have the players make appearances at the LVMPD headquarters, at the convention center to visit with families of victims, and at a local blood bank.

At the time Fan Fest appeared to be cancelled rather than postponed, but now, Fan Fest is back on. It’ll take place at The D Casino in Downtown Las Vegas on Sunday, January 14th from 3-5PM.

The event on October 3rd was scheduled to include the entire Golden Knights roster, The Creator, CEO of The D Derek Stevens, Kerry Bubolz, Gerard Gallant, and TV announcers Dave Goucher and Shane Hnidy.

The Golden Knights have yet to confirm the official list of attendees for the rescheduled event.
