Museum Asks For VGK Memorabilia For Exhibit

A museum is asking Golden Knights fans for souvenirs for an exhibit.

Ilana Short with the Nevada State Museum tells KLAS-TV she wants to turn the team’s inaugural season and its bond with the Las Vegas community into a lasting memory.

The Knights lost the Stanley Cup Final last week, but they went farther and accomplished more than any expansion team in modern sports history while playing a significant role in healing a city scarred by a mass shooting.

They blew past the NHL expansion records for victories and points while winning the Pacific Division. They then cut a swath through the Western Conference playoffs with 12 wins in 15 games.

The museum is asking for T-shirts, white towels and other souvenirs. Its first sports exhibit will debut in 2020.
