UPDATE 7:30 P.M.: The Vegas Golden Knights revealed that their AHL team will be the Henderson Silver Knights in a reveal made-for-TV special.

“Today is a momentous day for our organization, the City of Henderson and the entire Southern Nevada community. After years of planning and preparation, we finally get to welcome the Henderson Silver Knights home,” said Henderson Silver Knights owner Bill Foley.

The Vegas Golden Knights have announced that they will share the name and logo of their new AHL affiliate at 7 p.m. Thursday during a special livestream.

"Three short years ago we were gearing up to unveil the NHL's newest franchise: The Vegas Golden Knights," said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. "Today, we're more than excited to find ourselves back where we started as we prepare to launch our new AHL franchise in Henderson. We had hoped to celebrate the day with our fans in person, but with the health and safety of our community at the forefront of our decision- making, we have decided to take a virtual approach. This one-hour special will be packed with exclusive interviews, storytelling and, of course, the unveiling of our team name and logo. We have no doubt this team will leave a mark on our city just as the Golden Knights have done and we can't wait for the journey to start."
