Las Vegas Black Knights is the widely rumored name of franchise. And below is what is believed to be the logo. maxresdefault.jpg

The Black Knights name has been brought up multiple times since last September regarding speculation surrounding Las Vegas expansion team identity. One source saying the name is highly preferred by team owner.

 

Oh and, we'll likely know the official identity of the expansion team by the NHL Draft next week.

Who ever said that that was the logo?

Ever since I saw Sparkychewbarky's Las Vegas Aces identity video, I can't get behind any other name.

If this is indeed the logo for the new Las Vegas expansion team, then I'm all for it. That's a great logo. Still not 100% on the name "Black Knights", but maybe/hopefully they'll drop the "Black" from the name after a few years. 

 

Also, bonus points for using Brothers Roman as the font. Love it!

It's done in the same drawing style as most recently-designed college logos, and the wordmark is overly complex with an awkward mixture of angles and curves (the C for example). 

 

Also, the knight is mostly gold, not black. Or at least enough gold to bring it in to doubt. 

 

It's a nice drawing and a nice (albeit a little complicated) logo, and would be perfect for a college team, just not a NHL team IMO. Doesn't have that "iconic" feel to it. Could be other variants in the package though.

That logo is very minor league/college.  Would look terrible at center ice or on the front of an NHL jersey.  Pare it down, make it simpler.

I don't know what color scheme I would like to see for Vegas but I know that I don't want to see another team in predominantly black.

Black, Vegas Gold and Scarlet would be a good combo. But there has to be a good bit of red so they don't look like the Penguins.

It's NOT the logo. It's just a concept: https://www.behance.net/gallery/24304745/Las-Vegas-Black-Knights

... for a semi-pro or amateur girls team in some league that nobody cares about.  

 

Hell, just name them the "Las Vegas 5-10 no-limit players" if an obvious reference is needed.  I think everyone gets it - people gamble in Las Vegas.  

 

You can't have a nickname that's too obscure, but not one that's (as somoene else said) "hit you over the head obvious" either.  There's a middle ground somewhere.  So far, "Knights" is the only suggestion I've heard that falls in to that area.

Yeah when I sit back and think about it, it does sound minor league-ish

Black Aces would be pretty sweet, Bandits would be cool, too.  Outlaws is another one I like.

 

There is no question that black will be one of the primary colors.  It's powerfully stupid, but they will use black absolutely, no question, no way around it.  I just have that feeling.

 

I personally feel they should not use Vegas :censored: ing Gold, but they probably will.  The Penguins going to their throwback look full-time will probably be a necessity now, since otherwise the goddamn Black Knights in Vegas Gold, White, and Black will look the exact same.  

 

The whole freakin' color spectrum available to you, and you choose Vegas Gold and Black.  Shoot everyone involved if this happens.

They should go with a purple color scheme. Also "Aces" is the best name i've heard mentioned. Las Vegas Black Knights doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, and just sounds weird.

That's been known for a WHILE, and that's only because of his Army Black Knights past. However, that is pretty likely.

I would love for them to do a "Vegas Sunset" colour scheme, because the colours are quite beautiful and striking.

But we all know it's going to be majority black with some gold or purple or red or some other "regal" colour, as if Vegas has anything regal about it other than the characters on the cards.
