As if you needed a little more proof the powers that be believe the NHL is expanding to Las Vegas, check this out.
It’s clear MGM and AEG believe the NHL is coming to Vegas, and soon. They’ve held off the paint in the locker rooms, they’ve purposely not booked the arena from September 2017-June 2018, and they’ve got a Zamboni Room, a skates and sticks room and now NHL locker rooms. (And also, you are now caught up on everything we know about hockey and T-Mobile Arena)
Oh yeah, and don’t forget, T-Mobile Arena also had a pretty significant visitor over the weekend for the big fight.
We have on very good authority that NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly is at Canelo/Khan sitting in Foley’s box.

If the saying goes, “where there’s smoke there’s probably fire,” then there’s a mushroom cloud in between New York New York and Monte Carlo, and it’s just a matter of time Gary Bettman tells us it is indeed a fire. (I love that picture by the way)
