LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — With a setup so sweet, most fans wouldn't need to go to the game.

"It's here to entertain. It's not here to just sit here and do nothing," said Charles Morrison, describing his home bar, fully decked out in Vegas Golden Knights memorabilia.

Charles Morrison is not your normal Knights fan. Not only is he a season ticket holder, he's made it his personal mission to see his hometown team play in every N.H.L. arena.

"With the golden knights and hockey history and just knowing how great hockey fans are in general, I definitely wanted to make the trip to all of them," said Morrison.

Over the course of the team's first two seasons, Morrison has traveled more than 10,000 miles to cheer on his hometown Golden Knights. From Las Vegas to Vancouver, Minnesota to Montreal, and Tampa Bay to Tennessee, Morrison has already crossed 14/31 arenas off his list.

In case you're curious, Morrison says the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, is his favorite so far.

"The inside of the arena looks like you're out in a lodge in the middle of the woods and it gets loud in there," said Morrison.

His least favorite is the Enterprise Center, home of the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues.

"Their seats there just suck. They're small and the layout is kinda weird and it was just older at the time. It didn't get very loud," said Morrison.

Morrison may be biased, but he says nothing beats the comfy confines of T-Mobile Arena.

"T-Mobile, in terms of your views, the energy, number one, bar none," said Morrison.

Just don't be surprised if you hear his cheer, amongst an otherwise quiet crowd.

""When you get to see them get that win in somebody else's barn and see all their fans walk out the way we walk out sometimes, you get a little more attached to it," said Morrison. "It's great when you're walking out of an away arena and you give a 'go knights go' and everybody kinda boos you or gives you a little heckle."

Charles Morrison says he's hoping to travel to the 17 arenas he's yet to see, this year. But if he falls short, he says he will finish his tour in 2020.
