There is an added layer of excitement when you play poker with the Vegas Golden Knights.
The NHL is using the Vegas-area ice time to add more ice to the NHL Network, the NHLPA’s mobile app and online casino platform.
The NHL has played a key role in promoting the game of poker and its ability to be played with cash, according to an NHLPA statement.
“This partnership with the NHL is part of the NHL’s effort to ensure that players can play with cash and to enhance their social game,” the statement read.
“This partnership is the latest step in our ongoing efforts to ensure we are providing our players with the highest-quality, best-supported and most immersive experience possible.”
Players can play online, in person or on-ice in Las Vegas, with the game’s first season in the NHL scheduled for this summer.
The NHL also is set to open a team hotel near the Wynn Hotel & Casino, which is the first in the league.
A total of 21,000 NHL games have been played at the Wynne in the first five seasons, and the NHL has announced that a total of 3,500 new hockey games are planned for the hotel.
The Vegas Golden Knight team has been named one of the top 20 NHL teams.

In addition, the Vegas team is offering a new “Golf” experience.
