Ask Vanessa Stegall anything about the Vegas Golden Knights and she has an answer. 

"Who's the goalie? " 

"Marc Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subben!," Stegall shouts.

Thanks to Opportunity Village and the Golden Knights, Stegall was recently given the chance to test her knowledge as the team's sports reporter for the day. 

First, Stegall was put through a quick coaching lesson with Golden Knights Insider Sports Journalist Gary Lawless. 

"It's my world, you're just living in it," Stegall jokes with Lawless. 

After a couple shots in front of the camera, Stegall got her shot at interview the players. 

Her first question was for VGK Goaltender Marc Andre Fleury. 

"How does it feel to be apart of the all star game?" Stegall asked. 
"It's an honor to represent our team," Fleury said. 

Stegall got the chance to interview several players on everything from their favorite moment of the season to questions on their victory dance. 

She even got the chance to sit in on a press conference with Head Coach Gerard Gallant where he thanked her for coming to visit the team. 

"So cool! I met some really amazing people," Stegall said. 

The Vegas Golden Knights will post her interview interview in the next months on their website.
