It still feels a little surreal that there’s really going to be an NHL team in Las Vegas, but Bill Foley & Co. continue to hit some significant milestones.

They’ve already put together a big chunk of their front office, bringing in experienced executives including GM George McPhee.

Of course, money talks, and they’ve been showing promise in that area as well. The [Blank] Knights have already sold out the 16,000 season tickets made available, as the team announced.

“This is a truly historic event for the Las Vegas community, the NHL and all of our fans,” Owner Bill Foley said. “I would like to thank everyone who has supported and continues to support our efforts to make the Las Vegas NHL franchise a success.”

Well, they still have a ways to go to be an on-ice success, but it’s tough to beat up Foley too much for tooting his horn here.

So far, so very good for the NHL in Sin City.

Aside: did the headline get this song in your head?
