And then there were four.
The team name is one of those four. It’s not Black Knights, that’s been sort of vetted and there were too many objections from my alma mater and then some push-back from some other people so we’ve put that one aside. But the name is going to have that kind of you know (K)Nights somewhere in some fashion some way. Or, there’s one particular animal… a bird, that we have available to us that we might use. -The Creator
We’re still holding out hope the bird name is Peregrines, but the last time I asked him about that name he told me “there are some concerns with the pronunciation.”
Based on the quote, it sounds like the other three are all Knights related. But as I alluded to in the transcription, it’s possible he was saying Nights rather than Knights. If I had to guess, I’d say the three are Silver Knights, Neon Knights, and Nights.
He did not mention the London Knights today, who have been causing issues with the name Las Vegas Knights. Steve Carp of the RJ says because of the team in London, Ontario, that name is “unlikely.”
We have a video conference tomorrow with the NHL and Adidas. So I should have a good feeling of what the name’s going to be tomorrow. I’m not going to release it because we want to have a party, and we want to have an announcement, and we want to have our logos completed, and we want to have jerseys and T-Shirts and hats available for fans so we’re close. -The Creator
If all goes according to plan, you’ll be able to pick up that Las Vegas Night/Sliver Knight/Neon Knight/Peregrine/(Insert Other Name Here) gear at the team store at T-Mobile Arena almost immediately the announcement, and then at casinos like Bellagio, Monte Carlo, New York New York, and other MGM properties shortly thereafter. The Creator is also in contact with McCarran Airport trying to get his apparel there as well.
We’ve also confirmed a few local outlets have outstanding orders for Vegas NHL gear and one particular owner is expecting to open a “hockey-only” shop later this fall.
The Creator did go on to say the jerseys may be a little further delayed, but it still appears the timeline has remained the same with the unveiling coming in Mid-September.
While you wait the month and a half, scroll through our jersey concepts, and continue wondering what might be.
