Golden Knights prospects suited up for their third day of Development Camp, presented by Martin-Harris Construction – this time, away from the ice. Hockey gear was swapped for aprons and plastic gloves as the team spent the morning at the organization’s annual visit to Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada. Players then divided the afternoon between meetings and content features before heading to a Las Vegas Aviators game. 

Every camp, Vegas Golden Knights prospects volunteer at the Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada. Players help serve meals to some of the state’s most vulnerable residents, a philosophy that the team hopes will stay with them throughout their entire careers and beyond. A full meal featuring chicken parmesan, pasta, green beans and tiramisu was served by the players to the less fortunate.

Director of Player Development Wil Nichol maintains the essentiality of this camp tradition for all young players in the organization. 

“It’s really important,” he said of the trip. “We help those who can’t always help themselves…It’s really important that our guys understand that message.” 

After taking in Wednesday night's Las Vegas Aviators game at the Las Vegas Ballpark, Golden Knights prospects will return to the ice on Thursday, July 4. Ice sessions will be held at 9:15 and 10:45 a.m. PT. Fans are welcome to attend any on-ice activities throughout the week at City National Arena.
