Las Vegas community to name streets after inaugural Golden Knights team

The first ever Vegas Golden Knights team made quite the impression after they entered the NHL for the 2017-18 season. Shattering expansion records and ultimately reaching the Stanley Cup Final was a better than expected start.

There were numerous memorable moments delivered by those players as the team and city developed an immediate connection.

To honor that first Golden Knights team, a new 82-acre, 405-home community in North Las Vegas — Palmer Ranch by Taylor Morrison — will honor players and staff with 30 street names. That means you’ll be able to mosey on down Golden Knights Way to head toward David Perron Street, or maybe George McPhee Road, or even Erik Haula Court.

“We wanted to capitalize on all the excitement that the Golden Knights bring to the city, and especially in northern Las Vegas,” Taylor Morrison division president James Gomez told Jesse Granger of The Athletic. “The community has been such an integral part of our growth and so supportive of our opening. The idea to name the streets after players’ names has created quite a buzz and we’ve already had a lot of interest from different prospects on what street they will buy on, based on their favorite players.”

A Taylor Morrison representative told the Review-Journal that the street signs should be installed sometime this summer.
