Entry Draft, Not Expansion Draft, Bigger Challenge For First Year Organization


Interview: Chief Marketing Officer – Nehme Abouzeid


  1. Garry

    The worst thing is hearing its Golden Knights, 1 million people or 1000 don’t care, worst news, Golden Knights.

    Here’s why, it is…
    2.Ripoff of a college that dropped it because the Golden part stinks.
    3.Named after parachuting.
    4.Has porn under tones (Golden Shower).
    5.Both Desert and Silver trumped it in voting for months and still do.
    6. Highly disrespectful of others wishes, excludes Vegas residence completely.
    7.Shows disregard for making the community a part of it.

    One look at social media tells his team that Golden is the worst by a huge percentage, what moron says ya lets pick the least liked name.

    I can live and love Silver or Desert but Golden, he loses my support and a lot of the guys in the bars I speak with and social media.

    basically WTF!

    I don’t get it. Where is this coming from? Foley said the team’s colours will be black, gold, gray and red rock red, which screams Desert Knights.

    I’m expecting an army inspired shield logo and curved typography, reminiscent of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Florida Panthers who honoured the military.

      Hope you are right James but after his interview this week it screamed golden knights.

  3. James

    You’re not the only one who came away with that impression, but I interpret it differently. Foley acknowledged he contacted the U.S. Army Golden Knight’s Parachute Team to partake in the unveil, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Golden Knights. Desert Knights, Golden Knights and Silver Knights honour Army in some way shape or form. I got the impression that red rock red will be the home jersey colour, which screams Desert Knights. Gold would be the obvious choice if Golden Knights was chosen.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they also wear “Captain” or “Alternate” banners on the left sleeve. Again, to honour Army. See the Florida Panthers.

    The name Knights, a shield logo, curved typography, curved “Captain” or “Alternate” banners on the left sleeve would honour Army. The name Desert and red rock red as the primary colour placates the locals. You could also have the flag of Nevada on the left sleeve. See the Florida Panthers.

    Personally, I hope I’m wrong. I think Golden Knights sounds better. Garry said ‘Ripoff of a college that dropped it because the Golden part stinks.’ I did some digging, I read that the UCF Golden Knights were originally called the UCF Knights. A new athletic director rebranded them the Golden Knights in 1993. It’s no wonder they eventually dropped Golden. In an ideal world, I would prefer Las Vegas Knights over Las Vegas Something Knights.

    @James, thank you for doing some digging and the insight. Here’s hoping!
