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.

According to TSN’s Frank Seravalli, Canadian teams will actually fly less this year. The more you know. (TSN)

Pierre-Luc Dubois scored last night, but he also didn’t play very much. Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella has denied benching him. Either way, this looks like two semi trucks headed right at each other. Not good. (TSN)

What is the trade market like for Dubois anyway? Lyle Richardson took a good look at it. (Spector’s Hockey)

Tom’s Daily: Tuch Returns; VGK on national TV 10 times; Rangers goalie controversy already; Rask still answering questions about his desire to be a Bruin and more.

VGK

Day Three of Vegas Golden Knights training camp didn’t yield much in the way of news except Alex Tuch returning to the ice after a maintenance day. The Golden Knights are scheduled to skate again today (Thursday) and have an off-day on Friday.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal has a piece on the quirks of this year’s schedule. While it might resemble baseball a little bit more, when we broke down the schedule before we told you the VGK have a great shot at winning 8-of-10 to start the regular season (if not more) and launch themselves quickly towards a division title.

The NHL and NBC Sports have announced its full national broadcast schedule for this season, and the Golden Knights will be featured a total of 10 times. Not too shabby. (NHL.com)

The New York Rangers have a goalie controversy brewing already. (NHL.com)

Poor Tuuka Rask, he’s going to have this cloud hanging over him all season because he left the bubble to be with his daughter who was very ill last year. For me family comes first. But not for every sports fan. Despite all that, Rask says he wants to finish his career in Boston. (BostonHockeyNow)

On the heels of some AHL teams shutting it down for this season, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers have agreed to share an affiliate for this season. (FloridaHockeyNow)

Colin Wilson retires after 11 seasons in the NHL. I saw his first five or so in Nashville with the Predators, and he was a streaky scorer. Too bad it looks like his body is saying “time to go”. (NHL.com)

Day two of Vegas Golden Knights training camp wasn’t quite as exciting as the first day, but Jonathan Marchessault did score for the second straight day. Alex Tuch was the only VGK forward out, but it was just a rest day according to head coach Pete DeBoer. (VHN)

DeBoer says he’s ready to go for his first full season with the Golden Knights. With video. (News3LV)

We said this months ago, but it bears repeating that Cody Glass has to take a step forward this season. Especially coming off season-ending knee surgery. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

I’m a regular reader of Elliotte Friedman’s 31 Thoughts columns. Not only is he extremely plugged in when it comes to the league, his takes tend to be well thought out. If you haven’t read one before, start now. If you do read, here’s the latest. (Sportsnet)

Welcome to the Honda Division Golden Knights Fans! No, I’m not kidding. The NHL has sold the sponsorship title to all four divisions this year. (NHL.com)
