The puck drops at 5pm tonight as the LA Kings and Golden Knights write the first chapter of their rivalry at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Vegas is the first NHL expansion franchise since the Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild joined the league for the 2000-01 season. Whether in person, at home or streaming on the go, you don't want to miss the chance to see Kings take on the Knights for the very first time.
How to Watch/Stream
While the NHL amended its expansion process to ensure Vegas would have a more competitive team than its predecessors, few expected the Golden Knights to have such a strong start to their season.
The current high water mark for an expansion team is the Florida Panthers, whose 33-34-17 record came before the NHL introduced the shootout.
The Golden Knights are currently on pace to eclipse the Panthers with a 48-29-5 record and 101 points - which would make them the first expansion team to finish "above .500" and make the playoffs in their first season.
Brayden McNabb is set to face off against the Kings for the first time since being selected in the Vegas expansion draft this summer.
The 26-year-old blue liner was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres before being traded to the Kings in March of 2014.
McNabb played 201 games in a Kings uniform and played a hard-hitting defensive game that endeared him to fans.
Also with the Golden Knights is Colin Miller. Miller was drafted by the Kings in the fifth round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and won a Calder Cup with the Manchester Monarchs in 2014, but was traded to the Boston Bruins in 2015 before ever appearing in a Kings uniform.
Farewell Frozen Fury
Dating back to 1997, Las Vegas was host to the annual Kings preseason games known as "Frozen Fury". Predominantly played against the Colorado Avalanche, the Kings 12-6-3 record over 21 games routinely rewarded the thousands of Kings fans that made the pilgrimage to Sin City.
Sunday is the Kings first opportunity to try and extend that dominance into the new era of NHL hockey in Las Vegas
