Golden Knights power forward Ryan Reaves joined After Hours on Sportsnet this weekend to catch up during the NHL pause and answer some fan questions. Isolating with his family in Summerlin, Reaves fielded a range of topics from staying in shape to Evander Kane.

I got to say my brother now because he plays in the CFL. It would be pretty disrespectful if I said me. When we were younger me and my brother were really good at football, we dominated our league. He was really good at basketball and I was really good at football. He tried playing basketball coming out of college but he couldn’t find work… he’s such an athlete that he was able to jump into the CFL after not playing football since he was fourteen.- Ryan Reaves

Reaves was asked why he doesn’t score more often? For three seasons we’ve seen the big fella come close but he’s usually good for just eight or nine goals a season. However, he’s had some memorable goals in Golden Knights history.

I ask myself that all the time. It’s been ten years asking myself that and I just don’t have an answer for you. I should probably do that a little more often. -Reaves

With gyms, parks, and facilities are closed, walking and jogging around the neighborhood is how people are staying fit during the shutdown. Reaves is making the most of what he has, which includes his swimming pool, some weights, and some hiking in his surrounding area to keep in shape.

Practice Facility Location Moved Yet Again

Once it was planned for Durango and the 215, then it moved northwest a bit to Far Hills and the 215, now, it appears the location of NHL practice facility for the brand new Las Vegas franchise has found it’s final home.

The team is finalizing a deal with The Howard Hughes Corp. to lease land on Pavilion Center Drive between Rosemary Park Drive and Summerlin Centre Road and hopes to break ground in September or early October on the 105,000-square foot facility. –Steve Carp, LVRJ

The location is directly next to Downtown Summerlin on the east side, the side further away from the highway. Here it is on the map.

The Creator still expects it to be up in time for the opening of the NHL season in 2017. It would be an impressive feat since the original timeline indicated it would take 18 months to build the facility and October 2017 is just more than 15 months away and they aren’t planning on breaking ground for another four months.

According to the RJ, the plans have not changed citing there will still be two sheets of ice. However, the previous location offered an expandable area which would allow for two more sheets as well. It’s yet to be seen if this location will have the ability to house a total of four sheets.

This location actually makes a bit more sense as it’s more in the thick of things in Summerlin rather than on the outskirts. I can already envision it, morning skate, Lazy Dog for lunch, couple hours shooting craps at Red Rock, then down to T-Mobile to watch some Vegas domination. Let’s do it!
