Henderson just got better! Vegas Golden Knights Chairman and CEO Bill Foley announced that the American Hockey League Henderson franchise would be known as the Henderson Silver Knights.
On their website, Mr. Foley welcomed the community through an open letter. It explained the ideology behind the logo and symbolism of the organization: “Knights are the Epitome of the Warrior Class. Knights are courageous, valiant, protect the unprotected, and defend those who cannot defend themselves. The Henderson Silver Knights will embrace these noble qualities on and off the ice and positively represent the Henderson community. ”
Locals have embraced the team; the franchise has already received deposits for 7,600 season tickets. Henderson Silver Knights will play their first season at the Orleans Arena while they await the construction of their new facility named Lifeguard Arena, slated to be open September 15.
