I think we can all agree, our favorite aspect of the film “Slap Shot” is the Hanson Brothers (caution: some strong language). Those three provide limitless laughter and entertainment as they decimated their opponents in ruthless fashion. Hockey is a fantastic sport! It’s full of speed, danger, excitement, and occasional fisticuffs. The best part: Las Vegas now has their very own, shiny, fresh-out-of-the-box NHL team!

Recently, FiveSix Productions got to create a super-dope video chronicling the genesis of the team’s name and logo. Now, if you’re curious, the answer is yes, it was the video that was supposed to play during the name-announcement ceremony at T-Mobile Arena. Unfortunately, there seemed to be a technical glitch with the ceremony, and the A/V guys over there, couldn’t get it on screen. We’re not sure if it was just chop-full of too much awesome for their equipment to handle, or maybe they had a little Smeagol turned Gollum moment and wanted to keep Precious all for themselves. Either way, we were proud to be a part of the beginning of Las Vegas’ first professional team: the Vegas Golden Knights, and you can check out the video we made here on their official website.

Oh, and, if you’re curious about the “Golden” instead of “Silver” since Nevada is the “Silver State”, it’s because Nevada produces more gold than any other state in our beautiful Union (looking at you California).
