Remember when the Golden Knights first laced em up this year for preseason games against the Coyotes, Avalanche, Kings, and Sharks?
Yeah, me neither, because those games were not broadcasted in the Las Vegas area. Only the final two preseason games were shown on TV in Vegas leaving five off the air.
In 2019, that won’t be the case thanks to KTNV, Channel 13, who will announce the news as soon as next week.
The Golden Knights are scheduled to play seven preseason games with four of them at T-Mobile Arena. The schedule is likely to be announced in the next month or so but those games should take place in the second, third, and fourth weeks of September with the regular season getting underway the first week of October.
AT&T Sportsnet will continue to air all regular season games that are not nationally broadcast, but KTNV will become the first local channel to air a Golden Knights game with their exclusive contract to show the preseason.
Further details of the broadcast, such as announcers, remain unknown, but this news is great news as no longer are Vegas fans going to be left searching the web for illegal streams of other teams’ Jumbotrons to watch their beloved Golden Knights in the preseason.
