LOS ANGELES -- The NHL will hold an All-Star Game in Las Vegas sooner rather than later, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Saturday.

Bettman said the NHL would hold an All-Star Game next season if it does not break for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. He declined to say where an All-Star Game might be but said the Vegas Golden Knights, who will join the League next season, would host one in the near future.

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist

Bill Foley sweated this moment for months -- the name, the logo, the colors -- every detail, every shade of what we now know are steel gray, gold, red and black.

The owner of Las Vegas' NHL expansion franchise, the city's first major-league sports team, wanted to give Las Vegas an identity beyond The Strip. He knew he had one chance to get it right.

So he listened to ideas. He looked at prototypes. He delayed and refined, and delayed and refined again.
