VEGAS (November 15, 2019) - Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz announced today, November 15, that the team will help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 'Miracle On Ice' with a special Vegas Golden Knights season ticket member event on Friday, February 21 at Brooklyn Bowl (3545 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109) from 7-9 pm. Players from the 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team - winners of the Gold Medal and the historic upset over the Soviet Union in the medal round - will be in attendance and participate in a special question and answer session.
"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 individuals 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."
