Vegas Golden Knights logo, team name announced

Vegas Golden KnightsJust five months after the National Hockey League announced it would be expanding into Las Vegas, the team now has a name…the Vegas Golden Knights. 

The announcement was made during a public ceremony Tuesday night at the Toshiba Plaza outside T-Mobile Arena.

The team will be Las Vegas’ first major league sports franchise. 

Bill Foley, majority owner of the Vegas Golden Knights unveiled the team name.

“We want our team to be known for dedication, honor, strength, courage and a commitment to never give up – both on the ice and off,” said Foley. “We want our team to be committed to teamwork, service to this great city and integrity in all things – and we wanted a name and logo that represented all of this and was unique to Las Vegas and our community. Vegas Golden Knights is that name.”

Foley explained, “We selected ‘Knights’ because knights are the defenders of the realm and protect those who cannot defend themselves. They are the elite warrior class.”

“The Vegas Golden Knights team name and logo embody this great city and the mission of our team. When people see it, we want them to say ‘These guys never give up. These guys are going to win’,” said Foley.

Bryan Bickell diagnosed with multiple sclerosis

bryan-bickellBryan Bickell of the Carolina Hurricanes has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

The team’s general manager, Ron Francis, announced the news in Friday.

Bickell hopes to keep playing, but he will require a lengthy period of rest before determining whether his hockey career will go on.

“He’s a special guy. We’re thinking about him, and our thoughts and prayers are with him,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said, according to Fox Sports. “It’s tough to hear something like that. He has a tough road ahead. He was special for us, and instrumental in us having a lot of success here. We wish him well.”

The Hurricanes picked up Bickell in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks in June. He’s been out of action since October 30th. He initially thought the issue stemmed from an infected tooth.

“Since the 2015 playoffs, I’ve been struggling to understand what was going on with my body. Again during the past few weeks, it felt like something wasn’t right,” he said, via Bleacher Report. “Obviously this is a bit of shock for my family and me, but I am hopeful I will be able to return to the ice and continue playing the game that I love.”

On August 3, 2013, Bickell married his longtime girlfriend, Amanda Caskenette. They have two baby girl together. Bickell and his wife established the “Bryan & Amanda Bickell Foundation”, which helps rescue abused pit bulls.
