The Golden Knights 56-game schedule will feature division only opponents during the regular season and Vegas will face each team in the division a total of eight times during the year. The Golden Knights will open the season at home against the Anaheim Ducks at T-Mobile Arena on Thursday, January 14, 2021.
Foley told KSHP's Vegas Hockey Hotline that he expects the season will be less than 60 games, saying it could be "48 or 56 games." But he said the fate of next season relies on when fans can return to NHL arenas.
What if the NHL decides it is safe for its players to resume playing, but not necessarily O.K. for fans to enter arenas to watch? Instead, the league opts to essentially turn their sport into a television studio event, like a soap opera.Many teams have very nice places to practice, with the Golden Knights’ City National Arena arguably the NHL’s best. There are places to set up television cameras, the Vegas Golden Knights already have their locker room. The visiting team’s quarters could be UNLV’s locker room. It would be spartan by NHL standards but when the Knights went to the other team’s place, they would deal with it too.
