When it comes to the Stanley Cup Champs, it seems that age is just a number on the Vegas Golden Knights. The season is less than 3 months away and as the team gets ready to defend the NHL title, it might seem the VGK are getting older.

After only six season into the NHL record books, the team made good on a promise made by owner Bill Foley. He came out and said it from the beginning that the team would win the Stanley Cup in six seasons!

Well, low and behold, after getting through the first few rounds of the playoffs, the Knights turned it up a notch when it came to the finals. The had no problem handling the Florida Panthers winning the series and the Cup in 5 games!

It was truly amazing how this city wrapped it’s arms around this team and supported them from day one! And in return, after winning the Championship, it was quite the party on the Las Vegas Strip at the T-Mobile Arena!

However, as we get ready to kickoff season seven, it seems that the team’s overall age in regard to the players is getting older. Now, is the VGK the oldest team in the NHL? We don’t even crack the Top 10! But keep in mind that some key players are getting up there.
