As was first reported by SinBin.vegas, the official announcement of the team name and logo for the Las Vegas NHL franchise will be on November 22nd at 5:30 PM on Toshiba Plaza outside of T-Mobile Arena.
The Las Vegas NHL franchise will unveil the team name and logo at an exciting event, which is open to the public. All fans are encouraged to join us for this big announcement. -Press Release
Contrary to prior belief however, jerseys will not be shown off at this event, just the adjective that will precede Knights, the color scheme, and at least one logo. The current plan on jerseys is to show them off them in June and have them for sale either on the date of unveil or shortly thereafter.
Jerseys probably won’t happen until the Expansion Draft. We have to be very careful regarding counterfeiting until we actually have product. The counterfeiters can actually produce product faster than we can. -The Creator
As for the 22nd, shirts and hats will be available for sale with the brand new name and logo. Oh, and SinBin.vegas has a new shirt too.
Here’s the entire press release.

So how were we to fulfill Bill Foley’s dream of seeing LV jerseys at other NHL games leading up to next season?
Very good point. If they have a Q&A session at that event, you better be there to ask it.
Is NHL going to show it for fans that live in other city’s
We assume it’ll be on NHL Network. If we get word they aren’t, we will do a live stream on our Facebook.
So this big reveal is turning out to be a dud. No jersey, real merch, give aways etc. My guess there was no back end stuff set up, no store/online ready further jersey delays and so on. Nov 22nd was a date outta his rear end. At least they’ll pick the most popular name I hope! Las Vegas Desert Knights failing that the whole thing is a Shit show.
