It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Friday is the final day to seize upon it.
In a season that the Golden Knights have not yet acquired players nor played a game, NHL All-Star Weekend on January 28-29 in Los Angeles is a unique proposition. After all, while the NHL's other 30 teams will have players representing their franchise that weekend, the Golden Knights are in a bit of a bind.
If the team doesn't have any players, who could Vegas send?
As of last week, the franchise announced the #BoldInGoldContest, of which the winner will earn the right to represent the franchise at its first NHL All-Star Weekend.

The #BoldInGoldContest, which calls for fans to submit their best photos and explanation of why they'd be the best representative of the Golden Knights, closes on Friday at 12:00 PM (PST).
It recently received attention on Fox 5 Las Vegas.
"This Friday, entries close," Golden Knights senior vice president and chief marketing officer Nehme Abouzeid told MORE Las Vegas. "And then we'll compile them all, look at them all. You can already see them on our website.
"People have painted faces, they've made makeshift helmets. It's just tremendous the creativity, the passion of the fan base. That's what we want to reward. The most creative and passionate entry will join us next weekend in LA."

The #BoldInGoldContest has already received several tremendous submissions, which makes the competition for the contest title significant. But considering the unique opportunity to be part of an NHL franchise' first All-Star representation in team history, stiff competition is warranted.
