The NHL did not request for Golden Knights games to be removed from Nevada’s legal sportsbooks, deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN.
The league had 30 days before an event to make the official request; the Golden Knights open their inaugural season on Oct. 6 against Dallas.
“What we’re most interested in is making sure we get equitable treatment with the NFL in terms of how teams are dealt with on the book,” Daly told ESPN. “We had discussions both with the club and MGM, with respect to betting around the arena. There may be some steps done in respect to that, but we didn’t feel like it was an appropriate time to make the global request.”
The Oakland Raiders of the NFL are also relocating to Vegas with a scheduled move in 2020.
