The NHL Awards will remain in Las Vegas the next three years <a title="Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey" href="http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/ryan-kerrigan-jersey">Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey</a> , Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday night before the Vegas Golden Knights opened the playoffs against the Los Angeles Kings.
The NHL Awards will be held Wednesday, June 20, at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, also the 2016 venue.
”Las Vegas has been a tremendous host to the NHL Awards and we are thrilled to be coming back to the city for a ninth time this summer and, for a second time <a title="Authentic Philip Rivers Jersey" href="http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/philip-rivers-jersey">Authentic Philip Rivers Jersey</a> , to the Hard Rock,” Bettman said. ”Our players, coaches and fans look forward to coming to Las Vegas each June to honor the award nominees and winners.”
Additionally, the NHL and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) announced a multi-year partnership extension, making this the 10th year of a partnership between Las Vegas and the NHL <a title="Blake Bortles Jersey Black" href="http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-blake-bortles-jersey">Blake Bortles Jersey Black</a> , and the ninth time the league will honor its hockey players in Las Vegas.
And for the first time since the awards have been held in Las Vegas, local fans may see members of their home team. Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant is the frontrunner for the Jack Adams Award, honoring the league’s top coach, while general manager George McPhee is a favorite to win the NHL GM of the Year.
”The bond that developed so intensely and so quickly between the team and the city of Las Vegas, I don’t think anybody could have anticipated <a title="Womens Allen Robinson Jersey" href="http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/allen-robinson-jersey">Womens Allen Robinson Jersey</a> ,” Bettman said. ”We knew it would be successful, but that it happened so fast, maybe it was in the face of the (Oct. 1) tragedy and the team trying to help heal and unify. Maybe it’s the fact that Las Vegas is proud that this franchise has been born here and that its roots will always be here from the beginning.”
Finalists for each award will be announced daily, beginning Tuesday, April 17.
The Bengals turned back to offense in the fourth round of the draft <a title="Youth JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey" href="http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/juju-smith-schuster-jersey-authentic">Youth JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey</a> , filling their need for a backup running back.
They picked up Mark Walton from Miami with the 112th overall pick. He missed most of last season with an injured right ankle.
Although the Bengals' main focus on offense has been fixing the line, they also needed a running back. Jeremy Hill signed with New England after the season, leaving Joe Mixon as the featured back. Giovani Bernard returns for his sixth season. Walton is 5-foot-10 and reminds the Bengals of Bernard.
One big attraction: Walton played on Miami's kickoff and punt coverage teams, so he can fit on special teams immediately.
