Golden Knights to Play Outdoors at Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe NHL outdoor games Vegas Golden Knights

The Vegas Golden Knights will be part of a unique weekend February 20 and 21 as the NHL stages two outdoor games at Edgewood Tahoe Resort in Lake Tahoe.

According to a report by Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, the league will play a pair of games outdoors without fans over the weekend. Vegas will host the Colorado Avalanche in the league’s only NHL on NBC Saturday broadcast before April. Sunday, the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers will take to the ice in Lake Tahoe for the second half of the weekend showcase.

While it’s disappointing that fans won’t be allowed, it is an alternative setting that keeps outdoor games on the map for this oddball season. With the cancellation of the Winter Classic, the weekend set in Lake Tahoe essentially replaces it on the schedule and gives the Golden Knights a national TV showcase event in both the US and Canada. Plus the game could be a national TV look at the potential West Division title series.
