D Las Vegas teams with Golden Knights
Helping to bring ice hockey to the next generation, the D Las Vegas resort-casino will provide funding assistance to the Vegas Golden Knights to power the team’s Lil’ Knights program. Offered at all three of Las Vegas’ ice rinks — City National Arena, Las Vegas Ice Center and Sobe Ice Arena — Lil’ Knights is designed to focus on individual skills and team elements of hockey.
“We’re excited and proud to have the support of the D Las Vegas in growing youth hockey in our city,” said Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz in a statement. “Each time a kid touches the ice at one of the three rinks in Las Vegas, another hockey journey begins and our sport captivates another boy or girl.”
Added D Las Vegas CEO Derek Stevens: “Thanks to the Lil’ Knights, kids as young as 4 are quickly falling in love with hockey. Being part of the team’s historic inaugural season was an incredible honor, and we’re excited to continue to find new ways to invigorate Southern Nevada’s youth and invest in the city’s passion for the Golden Knights.”
