The last time we chatted with Rick Olivieri, he was the Director of Guest Services at the Washington Capitals (Ep. 272). Now a member of a small sales team in Las Vegas, Olivieri is helping shake up Sin City with the opportunity to bring a Major League hockey franchise to town. Hockey Vision Las Vegas has already begun on a high note, hitting over 11,500-plus season ticket deposits despite not having approval for an NHL expansion franchise. That doesn't deter the local fan base or Hockey Vision's core staff, Olivieri explains, and actually intensifies the amount of effort being pushed out in order to get a franchise team in 2017 when the MGM Grand's new arena is open.
