Murray Craven is Foley's advisor

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what his title is or will be but Murray Craven has been a huge contributor to getting the Las Vegas NHL franchise and being Bill Foley's advisor.

While Foley has been the face of the franchise to date, Craven has been its backbone. He has been with Foley from Day One when Foley told him nearly three years ago that he was going to pursue acquiring an NHL franchise for Las Vegas.

 

The former NHL player and Medicine Hat, Alberta, native who has been serving as Bill Foley’s adviser throughout the billionaire businessman’s quest to bring major league sports to Las Vegas is multitasking more than ever now that Foley has his team. Craven is overseeing the final phases of construction of the team’s locker room at T-Mobile Arena. He’s trying to get all the engineering and building permits in place so construction can start on the team’s 105,000 square-foot practice facility adjacent to Downtown Summerlin.

 

He’s helping general manager George McPhee with hockey matters as McPhee is assembling his scouting and operations staff. And he’s involved with the next big announcement — the team’s name and brand.

Craven said his vision for the Las Vegas team is to make it a first-class operation. If you play for this team, he said you can expect the best there is to offer.

 

“Players are going to love playing here,” he said. “In return, all Bill asks is that they give their best every night for the team and the city.”

Foley said Craven has been invaluable throughout the journey of obtaining the NHL expansion franchise and he will remain invaluable going forward.

 

“Murray’s a real practical, smart guy,” Foley said. “He’s been instrumental in helping us get the team and he’s going to be instrumental for us in so many areas. He’s overseeing the practice facility. He redesigned the locker room (at T-Mobile). He helped identify George as our general manager. He’s a friend and a very important part of everything we’re doing.”
