Las Vegas Knights - Team name announced for the new NHL Team. Partially.

What's in a name?

A lot, actually.  Las Vegas hockey team has chosen their name, but it's  a secret.
We do know it has " Knights" though.   But what kind?

The owners of the Las Vegas Knights has registered 3 names for trademark and domain ownership.
They are:

Las Vegas Silver Knights
Las Vegas Golden Knights
Las Vegas Desert Knights.

How quickly we forget that previous NHL teams that had a two part name dropped the first descriptor.

There was the Minnesota North Stars who dropped "North" when they moved South to Dallas.   This makes sense.

Then there was the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, which dropped the Mighty in 2006 after 13 years in the league when Disney sold the franchise.

That leaves (no pun intended) only the Toronto Maple Leafs and The Columbus Blue Jackets as the only other multiple word named NHL team.   The Chicago Blackhawks used to be the Black Hawks before 1986).
