Vegas Golden Knights open T- Mobile Arena, honor first responders in Home Opener.
The Vegas Golden Knights used the pregame ceremony at their inaugural home opener Tuesday night to honor the 58 victims of the mass shooting that occurred at a Las Vegas music festival on Oct. 1.
The team relayed video of the ceremony at T-Mobile Arena, which featured first responders escorting players onto the ice:

ESPN.coms Charles Moynihan reported the victims names were emblazoned on the ice before the puck was dropped against the Arizona Coyotes, while his colleague Arash Markazi noted there was a 58-second moment of silence to honor those who lost their lives.

Furthermore, Markazi noted the team opted not to show advertisements on the side boards and instead had those spaces filled by the words Vegas Strong.
Needless to say its not going to be a typical opener, Golden Knights general manager George McPhee said before the game, according to the Las Vegas Suns Jesse Granger. Well save that for Friday. (Tonight) is not about us, its about honoring and remembering the victims, and supporting the families and recognizing the first responders.
