"We are sincerely excited and honored to be hosted by the Vegas Golden Knights and the City of Las Vegas for this important anniversary," said 1980 team Captain, Mike Eruzione. "We rarely get the chance to get together as a full team, and have never told some of the stories that only we know about the Miracle on Ice, so this will be a memorable night for us and fans of the Miracle."
The Vegas Golden Knights, in their third NHL season and partners of the Relive the Miracle event, also look forward to honoring the 1980 team, as well as bringing hockey history to their fans and the City of Las Vegas.
"Our team is no stranger to the unexpected magic that occurs when a group of misfits and underdogs come together at the right time. We're honored to host a group of men who experienced that same magic on the ice in 1980," said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. "Our organization and our fans are thrilled to host the members of the Miracle on Ice team for an unforgettable 40th anniversary."
