Brayden and Charlie, two recent graduates of the Vegas Golden Knights Learn-To-Play program, have been entered into the Little All-Stars Skills Event and Jamboree. They will also receive tickets to the NHL All-Star Skills Competition Watch Party, All-Star Red Carpet Event Participation and tickets to the 2020 NHL All-Star Game.
This part of the All-Star Weekend is meant to promote the league-wide Learn-To-Play program, which allows children to learn to experience hockey for the first time.
Brayden and Charlie were selected from a group of more than 100 kids because of how well they demonstrated the Declaration Of Principles, which includes courage, perseverance, acceptance, humility, respect, teamwork, integrity and passion. They participated in a skills challenge at City National Arena, and were required to submit video footage explaining how the Declaration Of Principles has affected their life.
"As an organization, we are extremely proud to have two of our own youth hockey players represent Las Vegas for this once-in-a-lifetime event on one of the NHL's biggest stages," said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. "We are thankful for the D Las Vegas helping the Golden Knights grow the great sport of hockey throughout Las Vegas and beyond. This opportunity for our Lil' Knights is a direct testament of our combined support and commitment to growing the game."
