It’s always a party in Vegas and it seems like players across the NHL agree. 

T-Mobile Arena was voted as the arena with the best atmosphere in the  National Hockey League Players’ Association Player poll on Wednesday. Bell Centre in Montreal ranked second, and Bridgestone Arena in Nashville was third.

There is no doubt players love the atmosphere in Vegas and fans of the latest team in the circuit can be proud of their love for hockey. 

The home of the Golden Knights also ranked in fifth place as the arena with the best ice. Bell Centre was voted the arena with the best ice for the second year in a row, according to NHLPA.

Some of the players from the Knight’s roster were also candidates in different categories. Marc-Andre Fleury was voted the fourth best goalie, behind Carey Price of the Canadiens, Pekka Rinne from the Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy.

In the trash talking category, fan favourite Ryan Reaves was voted the third best, behind Boston Bruins’ Brad Marchand and Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings. He also placed third as the player who would make the best TV analyst once they retire. Predators’ P.K. Subban, the brother of Knights goalie Malcolm Subban, placed first, followed by Keith Yandle of the Florida Panthers.
