The Vegas Golden Knights announced recently their plan to purchase San Antonio's American Hockey League team and move them to Henderson.
The team will be the Knight's minor league team and they'll play at a new arena to be built in Green Valley, just east of The District shopping center.
The announcement by the team is the just latest in a series of moves that has brought more companies and businesses to the city of Henderson.
HENDERSON, Nev. — The signs of Nevada’s resurgent economy are everywhere in this community outside Las Vegas, the fastest-growing city in one of the country’s fastest-growing states.
As president and CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, Scott Muelrath is no stranger to construction sites. Wherever he is in Henderson these days, Muelrath typically isn’t far from a building project.
This day, he’s at the construction site for the Las Vegas Raiders’ headquarters facility near St. Rose Parkway and Executive Airport Drive.
“It’s a busy time—the relocations of businesses to Henderson and Southern Nevada as a whole, but also the growth of companies that were already here,” Muelrath says.
