On Thursday, March 12, the NHL announced the decision to pause the 2019-20 season.

The health and safety of our members, fans and our community as a whole is a top priority. We understand our fans have many questions and we will do our best to answer them as thoroughly as we can. The situation continues to evolve and is very fluid. Because of this, any policies are subject to change based on current circumstances.

We encourage fans who purchased tickets directly through the Golden Knights or the VGK Ticket Exchange to hold on to their tickets for potential future use.

We are asking fans to hold their tickets while these future schedule plans are being determined by the NHL.
