When you think of Hockey, the desert doesn't come to mind. But the NHL is looking to create an expansion team and Las Vegas could be the host city for a team that plays in the 2017-18 season.

Quebec City is also in the running for a team. And let's be honest - probably has a stronger fan base. But with a packed Eastern Conference and a new T-Mobile Sports Stadium opening up in "Sin City," the NHL is giving strong hints they want Vegas.
