Favorite Things Auction!

Every year, VGK players (with some help from their spouse/significant other) put together a basket of their favorite things to auction off with the proceeds to benefit local charities. This year, the proceeds will benefit Cure 4 the Kids and Shade Tree, as designated by the player’s spouse or significant other. Check out this year’s baskets by clicking this link! You can also text VGKFavorite to 76278 to participate.  This is a fun way to learn more about what our favorite guys in gold do for fun OFF the ice and get some very cool memorabilia (usually autographed!) directly from a player.  Auction ends April 14!

Anyone want to buy us the Stephenson basket?  Even if you’re not going to bid, check out the fun baskets these guys put together.  We also love Marchy’s unique basket design!

Hoppy Easter!

Wishing all of you a very Happy Easter!  Some of the VGK families are also celebrating today!

Meet Mr. Mantha!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last 72 hours, surely you’ve heard that Vegas is now home to Anthony Mantha, a left-shooting, right-wing forward, formerly of the Washington Capitals.  Just who is Anthony Mantha BEYOND his on-ice performance?  Let’s take a look…

Height: 6’5″ (just an inch shorter than Nic Hague!)

Nickname: SuperMantha (Hey, I don’t make these up, I just report ’em…)

VGK Emoji:   Ant emoji

Birthday: September 18, 1994

Hometown: Longueuil, Quebec, Canada

Married: Yep! (Sorry, ladies)

Anthony was drafted 20th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft and has played in 476 NHL games for the Red Wings and Capitals and will reportedly suit up for his first VGK game on March 7 against Vancouver.  Good luck, and welcome to the Golden Knights!!

Small Business Pop-Up

A few of the VGK guys and their significant others have rescued their furry family members via some amazing organizations, including Retriever Rescue of Las Vegas, which is one of the organizations that will benefit from the raffle held by Vegas Sports Shop at this event! There’s a special hockey guest attending, and rumor has it it’s going to be a CLOUDy evening!  Visit for additional information.

All-Star Break Getaways!

As we mentioned earlier, lots of the VGK guys headed somewhere tropical with their wives/girlfriends/families for this All-Star Break and we want to make it as easy as possible to live vicariously through them, so we’ll be posting all of the updates on this post!

Gala Season!

Many NHL teams host a fundraising or VIP fan gala in the spring of the year, and VGK is no exception. We’ll be giving you a look back at the VGK Galas of the recent past soon, but we thought you might appreciate a snap from a familiar face at his new team’s gala!  The Penguins hosted Night of Assists at PPG Paints Arena on January 24 and our beloved Reilly Smith was in attendance with his beautiful wife, Melissa.  We’re hoping Reilly will be back in town this summer for B4V, and will keep you posted if we hear any plans in the works.

Congratulations to the Haula family as they announced that another little fella will be joining their family before too long, and a bittersweet farewell as they also shared that they’ve sold their house here in Vegas.
