Las Vegas is famous for putting on a show. It won’t disappoint when it comes to the NHL, says George Parros.

The former tough guy, who retired in 2014, now resides in the desert, and can’t wait for the world’s best hockey to be played in town.

“This is a great sports town,” Parros told’s Pat Pickens. “This is going to be a great hockey market.”

The Vegas expansion franchise – still unnamed – will begin play in the 2017-18 season.

Parros recently played in the Las Vegas Firefighters Youth Hockey charity game, Pickens writes, along with Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker, who also calls Vegas home. And Zucker shares Parros’ enthusiasm.

“Most people don’t realize that there’s hockey here,” Zucker said. “It’s fun to be able to talk to them and maybe open their eyes a little bit. But it is a good hockey community.”
