Golden Knights Abroad Reach Men's Worlds Semifinals

VGK players in IIHF Men's World Championship advance

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

The IIHF Men's World Championship has reached the semifinals and all four Vegas Golden Knights players in the tournament are still vying for the gold medal.

Thursday, forward Nikita Gusev recorded one goal and two assists to power Russia to a 4-3 win against the United States in the quarterfinals. On the other side of the bracket, Mark Stone posted three points of his own as Canada pulled off a dramatic 3-2 win against Switzerland to advance to the next round.

After Stone scored a second-period goal, he and Jonathan Marchessault helped pull the puck out of a scramble in front of the Swiss net as Canada trailed, 2-1, in the dying seconds of the game. Stone made a pass to New Jersey's Damon Severson who snuck a shot through Switzerland's goaltender to level the score with less than one second left. Stone ended the game in overtime as he redirected a pass from Blue Jackets forward Pierre-Luc Dubois into the cage and Canada emerged with a 3-2 win.

VGK Fans Support Wolves In San Diego

Vegas fans made trip to Game 3 of Western Conference Finals

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

As the Vegas Golden Knights' affiliate, the Chicago Wolves, took the ice for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the San Diego Gulls, fans from Vegas filed into Pechanga Arena to support the Wolves.

San Diego and Las Vegas are separated by a five-hour trip down I-15 or a brief flight into San Diego International Airport. For dedicated Golden Knights fans, the 331-mile journey to the coast was worth it to catch some of the organization's top prospects.

Golden Knights hats and jerseys were scattered through the crowd at Pechanga Arena and the fans sprung to their feet when the Wolves scored the game's first goal. Chicago wound up on the losing end of a 3-2 game, but passionate supporters of the Golden Knights caught early glimpses of some of the franchise's young stars.

"I flew out to meet my brother for his birthday and it worked out perfectly to catch the Wolves," said Golden Knights season ticket member Zachary Peterson. "I'm excited to see guys like Glass and Hague. I saw them at Development Camp last year and throughout the preseason so it's exciting to see them again."

Wolves Want To Gain Winning Experience Together

Chicago teammates have developed close relationships during playoff run

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

The Chicago will look to take a 2-1 series lead in the Western Conference Finals against the San Diego Gulls at 7 p.m. at Pechanga Arena in San Diego.

Vegas' AHL affiliate split the first two games of the series with the Gulls in Chicago before flying to the west coast for the next three contests. As the Wolves prepare for Game 3, Head Coach Rocky Thompson said he's confident that the team will stick to the plan they've followed all season long.

"We want to play in the offensive zone and force them to defend," Thompson said. "If our transition game can allow us to do that, we can be heavy on the puck and do what we do best."

As a team makes a deep playoff run, a new level of camaraderie develops in the locker room that bring the players closer together. Thompson said he's seen how his group has made sacrifices for one another in order to keep their season going.

"This is one of the best groups I've ever worked with," said Thompson. "Not only are they great teammates, but they're great people. They love being around each other. They don't want this to end. They're fighting so hard just to get to the next day so that there can be another day after that."

City Of Henderson And VGK Partner On Community Ice Hockey Facility

by Vegas Golden Knights @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

Henderson, Nev. - It's a golden night in Henderson after the Mayor and Council unanimously approved a lease agreement with the Vegas Golden Knights to build and operate an indoor ice hockey facility in downtown Henderson.

The Henderson hockey facility will be built on 3.2 acres at the southwest corner of Water Street and Atlantic Avenue, adjacent to Henderson City Hall on a site currently occupied by the Henderson Convention Center, which will be demolished this summer. The new facility is tentatively scheduled for completion by July 2020 with an estimated construction cost of $25 million.

"The City's partnership with the iconic Vegas Golden Knights will be a catalyst for business investment and social activity in Henderson's burgeoning downtown area," said Mayor Debra March. "The team already has a huge fan base in Henderson and their presence in our community will actively engage residents and the next generation of players in the sport of hockey."

Proposed facility amenities include two National Hockey League regulation-size ice rinks, retail space, a full-service restaurant overlooking the ice and Water Street, and approximately 5,000 square feet of meeting space. The project will expand the recreational facilities available to the community through youth and adult hockey programs and leagues, youth and adult figure skating programs, free hockey play and open skate events, tournaments, and camps for hockey and figure skating. The facility will also be home to five official watch parties annually and host player and team executive appearances.

AHL Proves Strong Breeding Ground for VGK

Chicago Wolves Currently Competing in Calder Cup Western Conference Finals

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

Nine hundred and ninety nine players skated in an at least one NHL game this past regular season and 88 percent of those players claimed AHL service time on their stats sheets.

The AHL is the breeding ground for the NHL and it's not just on the ice. The Vegas Golden Knights have 55 people in the organization with AHL ties including 23 players and 32 staffers.

From No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to graphic designer Brady Hackmeister to head coach Gerard Gallant to president and chief operating officer Kerry Bubolz - the AHL and its many lessons has its fingerprints all over the Golden Knights.

Vegas has an affiliation agreement with the AHL's Chicago Wolves who are tied 1-1 with the San Diego Gulls in a Calder Cup best-of-seven Western Conference Finals.

Games 3, 4 and 5 are scheduled for San Diego. Game 3 goes Wednesday night and can be heard here in Vegas on Fox Sports 98.5 FM and 1340 AM.

For Golden Knights GM George McPhee having his prospects go deep in the Calder Cup playoffs is a huge plus.
