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.
