Golden Knights to test rookies against Colorado Avalanche in preseason match-up
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
The Golden Knights rookies have been preparing to take to the ice at City National Arena for the first time this season.
At 7 p.m., the Golden Knights will take on the Colorado Avalanche in this rookie faceoff, and the fans came out to show their support.
This year, six teams are putting their rookies on the ice to see which players could come in handy this season.
It’s the first game for Knights players since their tough loss last season, coming so close to winning that Stanley Cup Final.
But it hasn’t stopped the support for our Golden Knights franchise. Going into Year Two, News 3 caught up with fans who say last season was just a warm-up, and they’re excited to see what the Golden Knights will bring to the table this year.
“To get through what we did last year -- I was just hoping we could make the playoffs. To get through that was unbelievable,” said Golden Knights fan Steve Kopacz. “That was one of the greatest things in sports history.”
