In news that could, quite literally, shake up all of professional sports as we know it, the NHL awarded an expansion franchise to Las Vegas last week. The team — which will begin play during the 2017-2018 season — will become the league’s 31st team overall, and the first major professional sports team in Vegas period.
It also raises the question: Will the NHL open the doors for other professional franchises to relocate to Las Vegas? Specifically, could the Oakland Raiders end up as the NFL’s representative there? Owner Mark Davis has more than shown interest in the proposition, but many believe that it will never happen, and that he is simply using Vegas to leverage a new stadium in Oakland.
It’s a question that those who live in Vegas have to prepare for, although one prominent local voice believes that not only are the Raiders in play, but potentially more professional sports franchises as well.
