Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) delivered a resolution to the United States Senate recognizing the historic win by the Vegas Golden Knights in the National Hockey League Stanley Cup Final on June 13, 2023.
“From inspiring Nevadans across the state to clinching their first Stanley Cup title, the Vegas Golden Knights’ achievements in just six seasons are truly remarkable,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “Their teamwork, talent, and dedication to Nevada have made them champions since day one, and now they have the trophy to prove it.”
“Since they started in Las Vegas six years ago, the Golden Knights have been making our entire state proud year after year,” said Senator Rosen. “After an incredible season, they have brought the Stanley Cup to the Battle Born State and once again proved that Las Vegas is a world-renowned sports hub. I’m proud to help introduce this resolution to recognize a truly historic achievement.”
This is the second time in six years that the Golden Knights have made it to the Stanley Cup Finals, and their win marks the team’s first NHL championship and the second major league professional sports championship in the history of the state of Nevada. The resolution highlights the historic win, the Vegas Golden Knights players, coaches, and staff, and the fans who have made the Golden Knights one of the most exciting new sports team in recent history. It also honors the team’s special role in uniting Las Vegas during their inaugural season following the Route 91 Harvest Festival tragedy, and their continued dedication to serving the City.
