The 2017/18 NHL season is finally here and the Pittsburgh Penguins look to three peat this season after beating the Nashville Predators in six games in the Stanley Cup Finals last season. The Las Vegas Golden Knights make their NHL debut as a team, it's the first NHL team in the city of Las Vegas.

I will like to take this time and say my thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families in Las Vegas! My heart goes out to the city of Las Vegas! #VegasStrong
