What’s a good way to get fans to forget about a disappointing playoff defeat?
You announce a new uniform is coming!
And that’s what the Vegas Golden Knights did earlier today (kinda) via a Tweet from the official team account, quoting team owner Bill Foley:
As most of you know, at this point in the game there is no “highly likely”, we sit here now with less than two months until the 2019 NHL Draft, right now every new home, road, or alternate jersey for 2019-20 is signed, sealed, delivered.
Foley’s doing what Foley does, he’s teasing his fans (remember all the fun with naming the team?), he wouldn’t have said anything if he didn’t already know it was coming.
So, who’s ready for a metallic gold jersey in the NHL? I certainly am, and I can’t think of a city better suited to be the home of the first truly gold uniform in the league.
