The National Hockey League’s (NHL) latest franchise, the Vegas Golden Knights, have announced the D Las Vegas as their official downtown Las Vegas casino partner.

The six-year partnership will see the hotel and casino carry out various activations and events for fans during the ice hockey team’s inaugural season.

Additionally, D Las Vegas chief executive Derek Stevens confirmed that the property will make a US$100,000 donation to the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation.

Kerry Bubolz, president of the Vegas Golden Knights, said: “We're very excited for this partnership with Derek and the D Las Vegas. Every time I hear him speak about Downtown Las Vegas, I get more and more excited about working with this part of the city.”

Derek Stevens added: “Coming from Detroit, which is a true hockey town, I've had the opportunity to see how Mike Ilitch with Little Caesars Arena, and Pete Karmanos with Compuware AAA Hockey have impacted the community and youth sports. I am hoping to bring the same spirit to Las Vegas.”

The Vegas Golden Knights will play their home games at the T-Mobile Arena, and will make their first appearance at the venue in a pre-season game against the Los Angeles Kings on 26th September.
