LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Vegas Golden Knights will share the name and logo of their new AHL affiliate with a one-hour "Reveal Knight" special, Thursday night at 7.

The "Reveal Knight" announcement will be televised live on KSNV News 3 and streamed live across the Golden Knights content network including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Twitch. 

"Three short years ago we were gearing up to unveil the NHL's newest franchise: The Vegas Golden Knights," said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. "Today, we're more than excited to find ourselves back where we started as we prepare to launch our new AHL franchise in Henderson. We had hoped to celebrate the day with our fans in person, but with the health and safety of our community at the forefront of our decision- making, we have decided to take a virtual approach. This one-hour special will be packed with exclusive interviews, storytelling and, of course, the unveiling of our team name and logo. We have no doubt this team will leave a mark on our city just as the Golden Knights have done and we can't wait for the journey to start."

Team owner Bill Foley purchased the team, which had previously played in San Antonio, and is bringing them to Henderson.

A new events center will be built for the team on the site currently occupied by the Henderson Pavilion on Green Valley Parkway just south of I-215. Until the center is ready, the team will call the Orleans Arena home.
