After months of waiting, the new NHL team that will play at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada starting in the 2017-2018 season has released its team nickname.

The Las Vegas Golden Knights, whose logo can be seen as the featured image of this article, will be the NHL’s newest expansion team. This will put the league team total at 31 teams, the only major United States professional sports to have an odd number of teams in its league.

The Golden Knights will become the 8th team in the Pacific division and the 15th team in the Western Conference. No teams will need to change divisions or conferences as a result of this league expansion.
