More from Vegas Hockey Knight

It’s a sad day for the city of Las Vegas. The NHL and the Vegas Golden Knights are doing a great job at showing their support. This is one of the first times I have seen players of a team doing something like this. I have a new found respect for the players and the Golden Knights. To take a break from preparing for the season, to respect those first responders and victims. It’s something that I respect gratefully.

More information about the players appearances will be announced on Tuesday, October 3rd.

The Golden Knights start their season in Dallas on Oct. 6th, and don’t play at home until Oct. 10th. There is no word whether or not the Knights will be practising in Vegas before they head out to Dallas to start the season. Even though T-Mobile Arena is four miles away from Mandalay Bay (where the incident occurred), I’m sure the NHL will keep a close eye on the story.

Everybody at Vegas Hockey Knight would like to offer our deepest condolence to everyone affected in by this tragedy. This is a tragic event and we all hope that everyone is safe. This might be a sad day, but I know the city will become stronger.
