LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Vegas Golden Knights announced today, June 18, the club's official seven-game 2019 preseason schedule, which will begin on September 15 against the Arizona Coyotes at T-Mobile Arena.
All seven preseason games will be broadcast locally by KTNV Channel 13 in Las Vegas. Dave Goucher will provide the play-by-play call with Shane Hnidy providing analysis and KTNV will produce half hour pregame specials before each game as well. KTNV is owned by The E. W. Scripps Company and is an affiliate of ABC.
"We are extremely excited that our fans in the Las Vegas Valley will be able to watch all seven of our preseason games this year thanks to our agreement with KTNV Channel 13, the local ABC affiliate in Las Vegas," said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. "The team's success in the first two seasons has driven up the demand for our team's coverage, which includes preseason contests. We are proud to be one of the few organizations in the NHL to televise all of the team's preseason games."
"KTNV's partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights represents the first time every preseason game will be available to our Southern Nevada community," said Chris Way, KTNV's vice president and general manager. "We are excited to continue the momentum around the Golden Knights with best in class pregame coverage from our team at KTNV, as part of our ongoing commitment to our audiences."
