Golden Knights come home to help Las Vegas 'grieve, heal and persevere'

Golden Knights come home to help Las Vegas 'grieve, heal and persevere'

The tribute included recorded messages from the likes of Keith Urban and Imagine Dragons, followed by each Golden Knights player walking onto the ice with a first responder who helped save lives last week. Of course, I never could have predicted that when the game finally arrived, it would come just nine days after a tragedy like the one this town experienced on October 1. Thanks to their three-game win streak to start the season, Vegas has become the first expansion team in any of the four major professional leagues to start the year 3-0 since the San Diego Padres did so in 1969.

A ceremonial puck drop followed, featuring survivors of the shooting. The Vegas Golden Knights will play the Arizona Coyotes in front of a sold-out crowd at T-Mobile Arena. Knights defenseman and Las Vegas native Deryk Engelland spoke eloquently to the fans, vowing that the Golden Knights "will do everything we can to help you and our city heal". He hopes to follow the Golden Knights in addition to his Maple Leafs.

Our team. That sounds good. The Golden Knights will go without board advertisements, which will be replaced by messaging that emphasizes the strength of the Las Vegas community.

Will Wells Fargo & Company's (WFC) Earnings Grow In Next 12 Months?
Partnervest Advisory Svcs Limited Liability Corporation owns 18,294 shares or 0.46% of their United States portfolio. Wells Fargo & Company's institutional ownership is 77.3%, while its institutional transactions stand at -0.01%.

The Knights have had a nice start to their inaugural season, winning their first two games on the road.

That may provide a little extra energy as the Knights look to sweep the home-and-home series with the Arizona Coyotes after they defeated them 2-1 in overtime Saturday at Gila River Arena. 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. "Obviously, the city is still healing from the tragedy, and as players we're aware of that".

Their performance hasn't been flawless by any means, but it's been held together by enough Marc-Andre Fleury saves and James Neal goals to catapult them into the national sports spotlight. But a fan festival was cancelled, and numerous high-profile festivities scheduled for the opener have been delayed until the Golden Knights' second home game on Friday, when the Detroit Red Wings visit. It's going to be emotional for us, but we know they're going to do a great job memorializing those people and helping everyone move forward.
