Golden Knights honor victims of Las Vegas shooting in emotional opening ceremony

Vegas Golden Knights will honor #VegasStrong for home opener

Vegas Golden Knights will honor #VegasStrong for home opener

Instead, the all-white boards simply displayed the message "Vegas Strong".

It's impossible to predict what the prevailing mood will be inside T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday night as the Golden Knights make their long-awaited regular-season home debut.

Considering the history of weak starts by expansion teams in the National Hockey League, the Golden Knights are doing something quite remarkable.

The Vegas Golden Knights used the pregame ceremony at their inaugural home opener Tuesday night to honor the 58 victims of the mass shooting that occurred at a Las Vegas music festival on October 1. The packed house stands in darkness and silence for 58 seconds, one second for each murder victim, whose names are projected onto the ice.

Police said the remains found at Port Douglas have been sent for further testing, but there is no indication of foul play. He added that as the items were "located near (a) creek bank, we can not rule out the possibility of a croc attack".

For their first walk onto home ice, the Knights skated out with first responders, doctors and nurses who saved so many lives during the tragic shooting.

Neal's goal at 3:46 of overtime Saturday night gave the Golden Knights a 2-1 victory at the Arizona Coyotes, one night after Neal scored both goals in a 2-1 victory in Dallas. But while it is an important moment for the expansion team, hockey will take a back seat for an emotional pre-game ceremony and the players have something more meaningful to play for.

"I wasn't going to miss it", said Joan Simmons, a Las Vegas native wearing a brand-new Golden Knights T-shirt with the tag still attached.

The Knights, like all expansion teams, weren't expected to be competitive in the first year. He's called Las Vegas his summer home each of the last 14 years, met his wife there, and shares a bond with its other residents more intimate than any other player on the ice.

She never learned the conclusions the investigation reached, but she hasn't encountered Price since, she told the Reporter .

"I really feel we have a role to play in this and I think our players have really embraced that and it helps to galvanize our players with this city and our fans and shows what kind of people they are".

Now they play their first home game under some very unfortunate circumstances. However, it is scheduled for 15 minutes, and fans who are planning to attend are urged to arrive well ahead of the 7:30 p.m. scheduled puck drop. "We're playing for our city, for the tragedy that happened, for all the people that were here tonight and were affected by the tragedy".

Like us, they'll need to remain, "Vegas Strong".
