Vegas Golden Knights have pregame ceremony prior to home opener

In the franchise’s first regular season home game that comes nine days after a shooting that took 58 lives, the Vegas Golden Knights had a pregame ceremony prior to their home opener against the Arizona Coyotes.

The team had a video package air to start, showing various landmarks around the city and citizens representing #VegasStrong.

Following the video, players took the ice with first responders from the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and injured over 450.

A moment of silence lasting 58 seconds for the 58 people who lost their lives that day was held.

Lastly, defenseman Deryk Engelland, who lives in Las Vegas, addressed the crowd.

All those moments led to an electric atmosphere inside T-Mobile Arena that translated directly to the team’s play.

They would score the first three goals of the game in seven minutes, including the second goal scored by Engelland himself.
