Vegas hockey team honors victims of shooting

Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc Andre Fleury right makes a save on a shot by Arizona Coyotes center Christian Dvorak during the third period of an NHL hockey game Saturday Oct. 7 2017 in Glendale Ariz. The Golden Knights defeated the Coyotes 2

Before the team's first home game, they honored the 58 victims of the Las Vegas shooting that occurred on October 1.

After a video, the team introduced alongside first responders and those who ran into harms way to help others, in many cases, total strangers. the ceremonial puck-drop?-- flanked by survivors of the shooting. then- 58 seconds of silence to honor the 58 victims who lost their lives, and during that, their names illuminating on the ice-- through that 58 seconds. not a single sound. not one drunk guy screaming for attention, not one audible conversation between distracted patrons. just silence. To the families and friends of the victims, know that we'll do everything we can to help you and our city heal. But they scrapped much of it, including a fan fest and their usual pregame ritual (which will resume for future home games), after Stephen Paddock opened fire indiscriminately on a crowd of country music fans listening to Jason Aldean perform at the Route 91 Harvest Festival Oct. 1, leaving 58 dead and almost 500 more injured. The Golden Knights lacing up their skates for their inaugural National Hockey League home opener.

"Like all of you, I'm proud to call Las Vegas home", Engelland said before the game.

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

Tonight, Vegas showed what it was made of.and we don't mean our hockey team.

People of Las Vegas looking for a feel-good story in the aftermath of last weekend's mass shooting may have found an unlikely one in their newest team, the Vegas Golden Knights. "I think we all need hockey right now".

But after years of work and months of anticipation, the NHL's 31st franchise is officially in business in this gambling mecca, albeit in muted circumstances.

Fleury said he was glad they had a chance to pay tribute. "Vegas is such a huge town, a lot of people living around here, but it didn't feel that way (after the shooting)". The players and coaches hope they can play a role in a return to normalcy.

To their credit they've embraced the city, visiting with first responders and police days after the attack and owner Bill Foley coordinating $500,000 worth of donations.
