Earlier in the night, Kypreos indicated that he would be out week-to-week, but he updated it to more of a 7-10 day window. That’s good news for the Dallas Stars, but not so much for Canada.
If this report is accurate, then Canada will have some time to figure out a replacement. During that same Sportsnet intermission report, Elliotte Friedman notes that they have 24 hours until the tournament begins to bring someone else in.
Whether it’s Huckleberry Hound, the Incredible Hulk or The Big Bang Theory’s Howard Wolowitz, the average Pop figure adheres to the same template: It stands 3.75 inches tall in a neutral pose. It has a square-shaped head with rounded edges — one large enough to account for half the piece’s height. It should have pupil-free, button-like black eyes, a small nose and no mouth. Most importantly, it should be adorable.
“The name is definitely set,” Foley said Monday. “But I can’t tell you exactly what it is. That’s a secret.”
Foley indicates that announcement will be made sometime in mid-October.
Plenty of speculation
The Vegas team’s owner admits that he’s been very happy that all of the speculation regarding the team name is keeping his franchise in the news.
First, it seemed like the team would involve “Hawks” in some way. Lately, reports indicate that the team name will include “Knights” instead. The latter Knights seems like it will be in play, barring a swerve by Foley.
ICYMI Bill Foley confirmed today that the Las Vegas team name will be (Something) Knights. Golden, Silver, or Desert https://t.co/9CkGAxK4e0
Many of us always imagined a Vegas expansion team with some fun gambling reference, but it’s easy to see why Foley and the NHL would resist such a temptation. Here’s hoping they choose the right Knights.
