Vegas is getting a USA Hockey store


Sin City has hockey fever.

Just weeks after officially scoring an expansion NHL franchise, Las Vegas has announced it will open a USA Hockey store at the Fashion Show mall on the Strip, “one of the most sought-after retail destinations in the United States.”

More, from USA Hockey:

The store, operated by Redline Hockey, will be located on the west side of the second floor at space 2590 near Dillard’s and will feature the latest USA Hockey merchandise, U.S. Olympic Team-branded items, National Hockey League apparel and other unique hockey-related products. The grand opening is set for Saturday, Oct. 1.

“We are very pleased to extend our relationship with USA Hockey,” said Matt Nyman, president and chief executive officer of Redline Hockey. “Because of the interest in the sport of hockey created by the announcement of the new Las Vegas NHL franchise, we feel this is a great location for a USA Hockey Store.”

The first USA Hockey Store opened in Lake Placid, N.Y., in 2011.
