The teal ban issued by the City of Las Vegas in response to the Golden Knights series against the San Jose Sharks may be lifted, but a new proclamation has taken over for the Knights’ upcoming Western Conference Final series against the Winnipeg Jets.
The Clark County Commission issued a proclamation Thursday dubbing all Knights’ game days “Knight Up Days” throughout Clark County for the remainder of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs.
The commission issued the proclamation “to recognize and honor” the Knights’ historic inaugural season, encouraging Clark County residents to support the team through the playoffs.
