The Vegas Golden Knights are one step closer to looking like a real NHL franchise, announcing Tuesday a multi-year affiliation with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves.

The St. Louis Blues had been previously affiliated with the Wolves. Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said in a statement later Tuesday that St. Louis would not renew its primary agreement with Chicago beyond this season, but would “associate with the Vegas Golden Knights and supply players to the Golden Knights’ AHL affiliate next season.”

The bulk of Vegas’ front-office work will take place between now and the June 21 expansion draft.
