Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) announced that their resolution recognizing the historic win by the Vegas Golden Knights in the National Hockey League Stanley Cup Final passed the Senate and is now an official part of the Congressional Record.
“Las Vegas is a hockey town and I’m excited to pass this resolution to officially recognize the incredible achievements of the Golden Knights’ players, coaches, staff, and fans,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “This is a team of champions, and I can’t wait to see what they accomplish next.”
“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 thrilled this resolution passed unanimously in recognition of 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 2023 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 teams 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.
