The D Las Vegas and Vegas Golden Knights Announce 6-year Partnership
On Tuesday, Fremont Street’s 3rd Street Stage held a very big announcement. NHL’s newest team, Vegas Golden Knights had a surprise in store for the city as well as sports fans around the nation with the draft in due course and high anticipation. Thousands tuned in as CEO of the D Las Vegas, Derek Stevens, announced the downtown property’s 6-year partnership with the team (Pictured: Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Derek Stevens, Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant, Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz – Photo credit: the D Casino Hotel)

Cameras flashed from all directions as Stevens recalled memories of growing up in Detroit, where he watched two NHL owners – Peter Karmanos of the Hurricanes and Mike Ilitch of the Red Wings advocate and further youth hockey programs that helped bring southeastern Michigan together.

That experience is what propelled Stevens to make his second on-stage announcement: his generous $100,000 donation to help jump-start Golden Knights’ very own foundation to help fund youth hockey in Las Vegas! Bubolz expressed his gratitude in regards to the gesture and said it will help grow the game quicker. “Downtown is such an exciting place and Derek Stevens is a man who makes things happen”, expressed Mayor Carolyn Goodman.
