Look: Golden Knights, Stars add 'Vegas Strong' decal to helmets

The Vegas Golden Knights will play their inaugural game in Dallas against the Stars on Friday, but their hockey home won't be far from their hearts, minds, and helmets.

In light of the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, the Golden Knights have added a "Vegas Strong" decal to their helmets.

The expansion franchise, the Foley Family Charitable Trust, and the NHL also announced a joint donation of $300,000 to aid victims and first responders earlier this week.

Dallas will also don the Vegas decal, along with honoring broadcaster Dave Strader, who died Oct. 1 after a fight with cancer.

Teams around the league have been honoring those affected by the Vegas tragedy by holding a moment of silence prior to opening-week games.
