ESPN & Turner Sports Showcasing Vegas In 2021-22

News broke yesterday that the Golden Knights will be featured a dozen times on ESPN and Turner Sports this upcoming season. With the new television partnership in place, the two networks are leaning heavily on Vegas to help kick off their first season broadcasting the NHL.

One major complaint about NBC’s hockey coverage was their lack of diversity. The network tended to schedule more games with the league’s more established franchises and most likely from the eastern time zone, with the exception of the Chicago Blackhawks. However, as new media outlets take over, Vegas was identified as a perfect team to present to a potentially new audience. The Golden Knights are a Stanley Cup contender with a loaded roster, and they so happen to play in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. That’s enough intrigue for sports fans unfamiliar with the NHL.

Turner Sports have become the standard in NBA broadcasting having been able to successfully keep an audience for an entire double-header. It’ll be tough to mimic the chemistry and content TNT developed around basketball but they’ll try with familiar faces that are well aware of the Golden Knights roster. Also, Turner split their games up evenly across the league. Vegas will appear four times on TNT in 2021-22, facing off against St. Louis, Dallas, Seattle, and Vancouver. Add in the other eight games on ESPN and the 31st franchise will be given plenty of exposure to the rest of the hockey landscape.

As for the eight contests on ESPN, the Golden Knights will greatly benefit from Worldwide Leader’s global audience. Vegas brings its own unique elements that may even help break in the network known more for dumping hockey rather than covering hockey. Although, ESPN will bring some Vegas flair with their infamously elegant hockey analyst Barry Melrose. The partnership between the entertainment network and a highly competitive team like Vegas should be more than enough for viewers.

Vegas has quickly become a premier NHL team in terms of demand and success, enough to feature 12 times nationally. Of course, fans will get their fill of eastern located games but clearly, the new television partners want to present fresher and more successful teams than the standards of the past decade. As the Golden Knights continue to pile up wins and postseason appearances expect their national television schedule to grow. Hopefully, the networks won’t fall back to the old habits and broadcast the big named organization. It should be reserved for teams like Vegas that will put on a winning show.

Las Vegas Starting To Dress Up For The Playoffs

It’s the best time of year, playoff time. One of my favorite things about the playoffs is how the city responds to the excitement of a potential Stanley Cup run.

Of course, we kicked things off with the launch of our playoff hashtag, #FourTheCup and are starting to ship out shirts, tanks, hoodies, and stickers tonight.

The city is also starting to come alive with VGK pride too. First, the Credit One building right off the 215 has been wrapped with the words “Knight Up” and a gigantic logo.

Next, the nightclub at Red Rock has been transformed into Crimson at Knight.

You can see more pictures of Crimson on Fox 5’s website.

My favorite is the VGK themed food starting to pop up around town. First, at one of the best restaurants in the entire city, Zuma, is the Golden Maki Roll. An eight-piece sushi roll of bluefin tuna, tempura flakes, and pickled daikon topped with toro, fried ginger, Ossetra caviar, and 24-karat gold leaf.

Staying with the sushi theme, Sushi Ichiban has the Golden Knight roll made with soft shell crab and onion crunch and topped with peanut butter, spicy crab meat, spicy garlic ponzu, and spicy yum sauce.

And lastly, this post would not be complete without a doughnut. Pinkbox Doughnuts offers the Golden Knight.

And this is just the start. It’s go time and Vegas is ready.

Pat McAfee Commits To Donate $100,000 To Charity If Fleury Scores A Goal

Vezina frontrunner Marc-Andre Fleury joined former NFL punter turned radio superstar Pat McAfee’s radio show today in what became a must-hear interview.

Fleury chatted about pranks he’s pulled on the road, hitting guys in the balls when the refs aren’t looking, Stanley Cup celebrations, and so much more.

Near the end of the interview McAfee, while showing off his puckhandling skills, tells Fleury he’s willing to donate $100,000 to a charity of Fleury’s choice if the three-time Cup winner scores his first career goal this season.

Ah jeez, you’re going to get me trying every night now. -Fleury on Pat McAfee Show

The interview is about as good as it gets if you are a fan of Fleury and/or the Golden Knights. Give it a watch, you won’t regret it.

Local Company Behind The Face Coverings Worn By VGK Players And Coaches (And Where You Can Get Them)

Usually when the cameras cut to the Golden Knights bench during games we see plenty of familiar faces. This year, many of those faces are hiding behind masks, but they aren’t ordinary masks.

Each of the coaches, the backup goalie, and many others on the Vegas bench have been wearing black masks adorned with the Golden Knights logo on one side and a trio of stripes matching the team’s jersey on the other.

Unlike the team’s jerseys who are made by Adidas, the equipment made by companies like CCM, Bauer, and Warrior, or fan gear mostly produced by Fanatics, the face coverings seen on the Golden Knights bench are produced by a local company with a physical store right here in Vegas.

That company is Boomer Naturals and their signature product is a three-layer, adjustable, silver-infused face covering. They printed a few with Golden Knights logos as a gift to some members of the organization. They were hand-delivered to City National Arena and they impressed the team so much they called to say they needed more.

We were so excited to get the news. We’re a Vegas-based company with a staff full of Golden Knights fans. I’m very proud of our graphics team who did an incredible job working with the designs. -Amberly Quaintance, Boomer Naturals Director of Marketing and Business Development

So far, the Golden Knights have been seen wearing black masks but there are new gold ones they’ll also be wearing soon.

I really wanted to see Fleury wearing one of the masks. I actually missed it on TV the first time and then my phone started blowing up with screenshots after they showed him. -Quaintance

The masks are only available for purchase locally. You can get them now at Boomer Naturals, located at 8670 W Cheyenne. They are also available at Modern Rivals at 545 W Sunset in Henderson and Findlay Chevrolet at 6800 S Torrey Pines.

The team will be wearing the black and gold styles, but they also come in white with the alternate logo.

Don’t forget! We’re undefeated since they started wearing them! -Quaintance

Social media was set ablaze on Saturday night following the pay-per-view boxing event featuring Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr., and Jake Paul.

After Paul knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson, many other athletes stepped up asking for their shot at the YouTuber. Robin Lehner held little back with his initial tweet.

Evander Kane wanted some too.

From there, things got crazy.

Kane took a shot back at Reaves, but later apologized and deleted this tweet.

Reaves responded.
