Las Vegas–This morning, NBC Sports Group released their 2018-19 broadcasting schedule and the Vegas Golden Knights will be featured nationally nine times this season.

This is good news for the Golden Knights national visibility going into their second season in the NHL.

“With the impressive growth of fan interest in non-traditional NHL markets combined with the emergence of a number of rising stars, we felt the time was right to broaden our Wednesday night schedule and evolve the brand.” said Sam Flood, Executive Producer and President, Production, NBC Sports and NBCSN.

“Fans will still see plenty of games between traditional powers, but our new approach to Wednesday nights – including a record number of doubleheaders – allows us to show more rising stars and more Western Conference and Canadian teams than ever before.” Flood added.

Well that growth that Flood is talking about also includes the Golden Knights amazing inaugural campaign where they finished with an outstanding 51-27-4 record for 109 points, which has never been done before by an NHL expansion franchise in the leagues 100 year history.

Their impressive regular season record led them to go on a deep playoff run that saw them make it all the way to Stanley Cup Finals where they eventually fell to Alexander Ovechkin‘s Washington Capitals in a quick five game series.

With that success, the Golden Knights are getting a reward for their efforts last season by getting more exposure by being featured on NBCSN four more times than the previous year where they were featured only five times.
