About the Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas Golden Knights Tickets
Making their NHL debut in the 2017-18 season, the Vegas Golden Knights are one of the newest teams to join the league. This young but scrappy squad took the world of professional hockey by storm during their inaugural season, easily becoming one of the biggest sports stories of the year.
Nobody expects a brand new expansion team to dominate the league their first year on the ice. Even with the Golden Knights benefitting from expansion draft rules, most onlookers assumed that Sin City’s first pro sports team would take at least a few years to get their feet under them. But the Golden Knights surprised us all.
Out of the gate strong
Vegas played like a team possessed. Their season started strong with some surprising wins, and the victories kept coming. Even as injuries mounted — three goalies were benched early in the season — the Golden Knights persisted. As one of the loudest rinks in the country, the newly-constructed T-Mobile Arena didn’t hurt the team’s momentum, either. Visiting teams were often distracted and disoriented due to the sheer volume of the crowd, giving Vegas a leg up.
Between their home turf advantage and unshattered tenacity, Vegas won game after game. They claimed the Pacific Division in their first season, breaking records the whole way and eventually making it all the way to the Stanley Cup. It was only after five challenging battles against the Washington Capitals that their tank ran dry. Not bad for a team that didn’t exist the year before!
The house always wins
The Golden Knights made some odd choices during the expansion draft, most of which were dismissed or ignored by the competition. And yet their risky bets paid off in a major way. Among their smartest picks were the Penguins’ Marc Andre Fleury and the Blue Jackets’ William Karlsson. Fleury turned out to have a career-defining season all the way through the playoffs, while Karlsson scored an impressive 43 goals for Vegas that year.
So what does the future hold for Vegas? Based on their inaugural year’s performance, all eyes will be on the team to see if they’ll hold tight to success or end up a flash in the pan. No bet is ever a sure thing, though, as anyone from Vegas can tell you. Either way, the Golden Knights are young and hungry — and they’re not afraid to push themselves to the limit to get things done.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the Golden Knights play?
The Vegas Golden Knights play their home games at the T-Mobile Arena, a brand-new, state-of-the-art indoor mixed-use venue just a block from the Strip. The rink’s location between Las Vegas Boulevard and Interstate 15 means this 20,000-seat arena is situated perfectly for a night out on the town either before or after you take in a game or a concert.
When do Golden Knights tickets go on sale?
Golden Knights tickets are made available by the NHL well in advance of every hockey season. The league schedules all regular season games far ahead of time, so you’ll always have a good idea when the Golden Knights will be in town or on the road. This makes planning to catch a game easy, as there’s no rush to pick up tickets.
When is the best time to buy Golden Knights tickets?
Speaking of there not being any rush, the best time to buy the cheapest Golden Knights tickets is usually at the very last minute. You might think that tickets being made available months in advance means you should jump on them early, but the truth is that regular season games are unlikely to sell out — even for a team with as much potential as the Golden Knights.
So why does it pay off to wait? Most NHL tickets are picked up by wholesale resellers who buy directly from the league at discounted rates and then resell them to you. If these tickets don’t sell by the time the game starts, though, they’re worse than worthless — resellers lose out on their original purchase price! Thanks to these market dynamics, resellers will drop their sale price like a rock so they can at least break even. That’s why buying cheap tickets at the last minute is always a good idea.
So what’s the best way to buy cheap Golden Knights tickets?
Since resellers offer the cheapest Golden Knights tickets, it pays to use an online marketplace to get seats for your next Vegas game. Otherwise, you’re just paying too much for seats you could get at a deep discount elsewhere. Same goes for tickets for any other sporting event or concert!
