The Rise of the Vegas Golden Knights: How a New NHL Expansion Team Became Playoff Contenders in Just a Few Years
The Vegas Golden Knights are a relatively new team in the National Hockey League (NHL), having joined the league as an expansion team in 2017. However, in just a few short years, they have already established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
In fact, the Golden Knights have made it to the third round of the playoffs four times in just six seasons. This is an incredible achievement, especially when you consider that most expansion teams struggle to even make the playoffs in their first few years of existence.
How have the Golden Knights achieved this level of success in such a short period of time? There are a number of factors that have contributed to their success on the ice.
For one thing, the Golden Knights have a talented roster of players, including some of the top scorers and defenders in the league. They have also been able to attract top free agents and make savvy trades to bolster their lineup.
In addition, the team has a dedicated fan base that has helped create a unique and exciting atmosphere at their home games in T-Mobile Arena. The "Golden Misfits," as the team is sometimes known, have quickly become a beloved part of the Las Vegas community.
