Jose Bautista among list of celebrity owners of Vegas Golden Knights NHL team

The NHL’s 31st team unveiled their new name and logo on Tuesday, as majority owner Bill Foley introduced us to the ‘Vegas Golden Knights’.

Foley is a former attorney that serves as Chairman of the Board for Fidelity National Financial. More interesting than that are the resumes of his minority partners with the Golden Knights, that include a number of celebrities and current/former athletes.

As reported by ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the list of minority owners includes (soon to be former?) Toronto Blue Jays’ outfielder Jose Bautista.

 Here’s a list of the other minority owners:

  • Mark Recchi (former NHL right winger)
  • Alexei Yashin (former NHL centre)
  • Carol Alt (model)
  • Rob Gronkowski (New England Patriots)
  • Prince Amukamara (Jacksonville Jaguars)

The Golden Knights are Las Vegas’ first major pro sports franchise and will begin play next season.
