However, our city’s National Hockey League team, the Vegas Golden Knights, certainly is! So, if you’ve been supporting this Vegas-born team since its inception in 2017, you’ll want to show your pride. Being that the Golden Knights are the NHL’s 2022-2023 Stanley Cup Champions, I thought I’d browse the internet for some championship gear for the upcoming season. After all, what’s the point of rooting for your favorite team if you can’t boast a little when they win it all?   Vegas Golden Knights: Quickest Expansion Team To Win A Stanley Cup  Not only are Las Vegans proud and excited to be able to claim that we live in a championship city, but we can also boast that our team was the quickest expansion team to win a Stanley Cup.  As a matter of fact, the Vegas Golden Knights sipped champagne from the Cup in their sixth season. Before they accomplished that feat, the Philadelphia Flyers were the quickest NHL expansion team to win a championship. They skated around the ice with Lord Stanley’s trophy in their seventh season.  Vegas Defends Their Title And Attempts To Repeat As special as the Golden Knights’ Stanley Cup victory is, I think it’s also pretty amazing they won in their sixth season as management promised. Certainly, that’s unheard of in professional sports. So, now the goal is to successfully defend that title and attempt to repeat the feat.  Since 1990, only four NHL teams have managed to become repeat champions. The Pittsburgh Penguins, led by future Hall-of-Famers Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr won two straight Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. Later that decade, the Detroit Red Wings, captained by Steve Yzerman, recorded consecutive championships in 1997 and 1998.  Henceforth, during the “Salary Cap Era” which began in 2005-2006, the only teams to win consecutive Stanley Cups are the Pittsburgh Penguins, led by captain Sidney Crosby, in 2016 and 2017. Then, the Tampa Bay Lightning repeated the feat in 2020 and 2021.   Accordingly, let’s check out what we’ll be wearing when the Vegas Golden Knights attempt to repeat the feat of winning a Stanley Cup championship in consecutive seasons.
