LAS VEGAS, NV – It wasn’t difficult for Las Vegans to get behind their Golden Knights during the first-year team’s incredible, improbable run to the Stanley Cup Finals. And the community’s whole-hearted acceptance of the Knights allowed the city’s newest residents to get comfortable quickly.

“We realized very early on how important the team was to this community,” said forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, a native of Paris suburb Le Blanc-Mesnil who played for three seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers before Vegas grabbed him in last year’s expansion draft. “You’d go to the store and see all these people wearing Golden Knights gear and it just made us all feel unified.”

Bellemare’s first year in Las Vegas was just as special off the ice as he and his wife, Hannah, welcomed their first child, Leandre, in January, giving new meaning to the Knights’ mantra of being “Vegas born.”

My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
