VGK Sled Hockey makes financial bond


The Vegas Golden Knights have made multiple efforts to grow the sport of hockey here in Las Vegas, but they can’t do it without the financial backing of local businesses.

Monday, the Golden Knights announced a sponsorship deal with Zappos to fund the VGK Sled Hockey team.

The Golden Knights define sled hockey as a sit-down version of ice hockey for players whose disability prevents them from playing stand-up hockey.

The Knights' Sled Hockey team has several upcoming tournaments and exhibitions, including during intermission of the Vegas Golden Knights versus the Anaheim Ducks game on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at T-Mobile Arena.
