8,000 Season Ticket Deposits For NHL Team in LV

The group attempting to bring a National Hockey League expansion franchise to Las Vegas said today they have deposits for more than 8,000 season tickets. Hockey Vision Las Vegas wants deposit money for at least 10,000 season tickets to show that locals will support a team.

The ticket drive started February 10. The team would begin play in the 2016-17 season in the MGM Resorts International and Anschutz Entertainment Group area being constructed behind New York-New York.
