Henderson Event Center

HEC Design Proposal

The American Hockey League franchise San Antonio Rampage was bought by Bill Foley on February 6, 2020, with the intent of moving the franchise to the Valley to serve as the Vegas Golden Knights developmental franchise.

HEC Design Proposal

On May 28, 2020, it was announced that the team’s name would change to the Henderson Silver Knights in honor of Nevada’s nickname “The Silver State.” It would also adopt the slogan “Home Means Henderson,” inspired by the Nevada state song “Home Means Nevada.” The plan is to build a new arena in Henderson, Nevada.

Henderson Silver Knights will play their initial season in 2020-2021 at Orleans Arena before moving to a new 6,000-seat arena — currently named the Henderson Event Center — that is currently being built at the former site of the Henderson Pavilion on Green Valley Parkway and Paseo Verde Parkway. Their new home will be ready in time for the 2022-23 season. You can watch the development of the new arena in real-time here.

The team will hold its practices at Lifeguard Arena in Downtown Henderson.
