Last night was a monumental night for the National Hockey League and Bill Foley who as a collaborative effort brought the NHL's Golden Knights to the city of Las Vegas, and now we know more about who helped make that happen.

While there are a number of people who will boast minority ownership stakes in the team, there are two names from across the sporting world that certainly drew a great deal of attention today when they were revealed. The first big name belongs to New England Patriots superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski who according to ESPN's Darren Rovell is now a minority owner of the Golden Knights. 

Gronk isn't alone either, Rovell also reports that Toronto Blue Jays superstar right fielder Jose Bautista also has an ownership stake in the Golden Knights. It will be very interesting to see if either man plays any kind of role within the organization, although you may want to keep a notorious party animal like Gronk away from your young prospects.
