Still one team short of a full house, the National Hockey League closed the gap when they granted Las Vegas the 31st NHL franchise tag in June 2016. Led by billionaire Bill Foley, the Golden Knights bid was selected over a proposal from Montreal communication company Quebecor who were trying to bring a team back to Quebec City. Since hitting the ice on October 6, 2017, during a 2-1 victory over Dallas, the Golden Knights have been a record setting machine.

Bet On Vegas Golden Knights
Keeping National Hockey League historians very busy, the Vegas Golden Knights inaugural 2017-18 season necessitated a near full rewrite of every “positive” NHL expansion squad record. With their schedule still in progress, while we are writing this review on 14/02/18, some of the Knights first year franchise high-water marks include most wins, most points, longest winning streak and longest run of matches with at least one point. Those numbers helped keep the Golden Knights at or near the top of the Western Conference standings throughout the majority of their first NHL campaign.
As the first Big Four North American sports team in the betting capital of the world, the NFL Las Vegas Raiders will join the scene in 2019, Vegas is also rewriting the NHL playoff history as well. Pacific Division leaders, for the majority of their initial season, the Knights are the first expansion squad to make the postseason in their inaugural year since the 1967-68 NHL campaign. The start is even more impressive when one considers that the six 1967 expansion teams all made up the first season of the Western Conference and four of them had to make to the postseason by rule.
