The Army is reviewing the name of the newest addition to the National Hockey League.
The Vegas Golden Knights unveiled its name on Nov. 22 during a ceremony in Las Vegas, and the Army wants to ensure there's no confusion between the sports team and the United States Army Parachute Team, which is known as the Golden Knights.
Alison Bettencourt, a spokeswoman for the Army Marketing and Research Group, said the service is evaluating its rights and the NHL team's use of the name.
"There is no Army connection with this team," said Bettencourt, adding that the Army wants to ensure that the Golden Knights parachute team is known for who and what they've been since the 1960s, when they started using the moniker. The parachute team is one of only three Defense Department-sanctioned aerial demonstration teams, and its soldiers perform at more than 100 events a year.
