VEGAS (February 13, 2020) - Vegas Golden Knights Chairman and CEO Bill Foley issued the following update regarding the organization s American Hockey League plans:

"We are proud to announce that the American Hockey League version of The Fortress is coming to Henderson. We will work with city officials on developing a second hockey facility in Henderson, which will be a new state-of-the-art, 6,000-seat arena for our AHL team.

While our AHL club will practice and be headquartered at our Lifeguard Arena complex on Water Street, this new venue will be where the team plays their home games and will be where we create the same energy, excitement and programming that fans have come to expect during Golden Knights games on the Strip.

The Golden Knights and the City of Henderson have demonstrated a commitment to bringing major professional sports to this great community and growing the game of hockey in our region. The City has been an outstanding partner on both of these ambitious projects and we look forward to our shared vision becoming a reality." (End Quote)
