The Howard Hughes Corporation and Black Knight Sports & Entertainment, LLC Bring Las Vegas NHL Franchise’s Practice Facility to Downtown Summerlin

    On Sep. 26, 2016 The Howard Hughes Corporation and Black Knight Sports & Entertainment, LLC announced the signing of a 20-year ground lease to build a two-rink practice facility for the newly awarded NHL franchise inLas Vegas on a 4.6-acre parcel in Downtown Summerlin.

    On October 5,2016 Majority team owner team owner Bill Foley and several others gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Las Vegas hockey team’s practice facility. Located near Pavilion Center Drive and Griffith Peak Drive, the 120,000-square-foot facility will include two full sheets of ice that will service not only Vegas’ first major professional sports team but also local youth and adult leagues. About 200 people turned out for the event, adding further proof, Foley said, that Vegas is ready for hockey. The facility is expected to be open by Sept. 1, 2017. That’s a little more than a month before Las Vegas will play its first-ever game, and it gives the team a home in what Foley called “the prime site in all of Las Vegas.” The games will be played on the Strip, but Foley and company want the team to really feel like part of the entire community. Many of the players will live out near the facility, and in less than a year, it will be a common to occasionally see NHL players skating alongside youth players.

    On November 22, 2016 The Golden Knights’ name was announced amid fanfare at Toshiba Plaza as an estimated 5,000 people waited outside the team’s home, T-Mobile Arena. They listened to speeches from team majority owner Bill Foley, general manager George McPhee and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman before the revealing of the nickname, colors and logo.

    Groundbreaking on the new facility is expected to take place later this month with a tentative completion date set forAugust 2017. “This will be another amenity for our residents and further distinguish Summerlin as the premier place to live in the region. The practice facility will also provide the community with a venue to host other sporting activities such as youth hockey and figure skating. “This facility will be a giant step in the development of an expanded youth hockey and adult league program inClark County, saidBill Foley theNHLfranchise’s majority owner. During the off-season, it will serve as another kind of community jewel as an ice skating center open to the public, right next to an enticing array of restaurants and shops at Downtown Summerlin.
