LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - There's a new Knight in town.

Thursday night, Vegas Golden Knights Chairman and CEO Bill Foley announced that the team's AHL Henderson franchise will be known as the Henderson Silver Knights.

Black Knight Sports and Entertainment, LLC, who also own and operate the Golden Knights, purchased an AHL membership in February 2020, briniging the former San Antonio Rampage to Henderson.

"Today is a momentous day for our organization, the City of Henderson and the entire Southern Nevada community. After years of planning and preparation, we finally get to welcome the Henderson Silver Knights home," said Henderson Silver Knights owner Bill Foley. "When we started our initial ticket drive to bring hockey to Vegas and create the team we now know as the Golden Knights, it was obvious this community had all the makings of a great hockey city. That being said, the passion and enthusiasm our fans have shown us over the past three years is greater than anything we could have imagined. Now our fans can watch more hockey right in their backyard and keep a close eye on our players' journeys as they advance through our ranks with the intention of achieving the ultimate goal: Becoming a Vegas Golden Knight."

The three primary colors of the Henderson Silver Knights are silver, gold and black.

More information can be found on the team's website, www.hendersonsilverknights.com.

While the team waits for a new events center to be completed on Green Valley Parkway south of 215, their games will be played at the Orleans Arena.
