The Vegas Golden Knights are paying a heartfelt tribute to the victims of the recent Las Vegas mass shooting.

Instead of ads on the boards around the ice for their home opener against the Arizona Coyotes at T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday, the Golden Knights decided to put #VegasStrong as a symbol of solidarity with the community.

Tweet from @GoldenKnights: There won't be any advertisements on the boards tonight. Instead, our boards will reflect who we are. #VegasStrong pic.twitter.com/29pL7wmMwJ

The team set up a text to give campaign for the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation. Fans can text "VEGAS" to 51555 to make a donation.

The Coyotes will also be wearing #VegasStrong decals on their helmets, just like the Dallas Stars did for the season opener on Oct. 6.
