Sin City wants its kids to play in the Windy City.

The Vegas Golden Knights, the NHL’s newest expansion team that will begin play next season, are in discussion with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves to partner as its minor-league affiliate, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The Wolves are currently the farm team of the St. Louis Blues, though Golden Knights owner Bill Foley has previously expressed that Vegas will look to share a minor-league affiliate before purchasing its own.

The Golden Knights hope to have their own AHL club in the west in the future, with possible homes including Reno, Nev., Salt Lake City, Utah, and Fresno, Calif.

Foley has previously stated that he hopes to have the Golden Knights’ affiliate finalized in January.
