    So, I have only spent one night at MGM on the tail end of a trip in 2013, but had a great summer offer for four nights in a suite, limo, resort credit and freeplay. Called VIP services today to give them our flight details for the limo pick up, and just thought I'd ask if they could help me get two tickets to the NHL awards that were announced yesterday that just happen to be at MGM while I'm there. The very nice lady asked if she could put me on hold while she called a host, came back and we now have two comped tickets to the NHL Awards!! My friend that I am bringing, a vegas virgin, is a huge hockey fan so it should be fun! Also got an email from the host in case I need anything else at all before we get there. Can't wait to see how this trip goes!

    That's awesome! I've attended many games and events, even a couple of NHL drafts (I work for a Sports TV network in Canada) but I've always wanted to check out the awards. Maybe in a few years when my dream comes true and I get a job covering the Las Vegas NHL Team (Dreams!) I will be able to attend. Though my luck, they'll move the awards somewhere else by then

    Went to it a few years ago at the Palms, great parties before and after. Should have the Cup on display.

    Hadn't even considered that the awards may influence the atmosphere a bit and lead to some parties. Coming from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, I don't usually think of Vegas as a hockey town when I'm there. Looking forward to it though, for sure.

    Not sure if this offer is specific to me or if it was sent to everyone (I have virtually no status with MGM), but I got an email today for a room at the MGM Signature and two tickets to the NHL Awards for only $155 total. I wish I could go, but I can't. Seems like a great deal. Here's the link if anyone is interested:

    Have fun Maqaiti! Hopefully you let us know how it was afterward.

    If you head downtown at all, go to the D or Golden Gate and ask for host Darren Banks. Guy played about 25 games for the Bruins in the early 90s. He's got some stories to tell about fighting the heavyweights. When you see him you'll be surprised to know he's a former hockey player, looks like an NFL tight end. Said he usually meets up with guys like Crosby and Subban when they're in town. Also talks to alot of former Red Wings players. Really good guy.
