LAS VEGAS (FOX5) — The Silver Knights have started off their inaugural year undefeated with a 2– record.
Head Coach Manny Viveiros is delighted with the results on the ice, as properly as off.
“Down below in Henderson we’ve been great, I am knocking on wooden as we talk, this virus it goes immediately after most people and you in no way know how you’re heading to get it or what can occur in this article, we have been really god so much, our guys have been diligent, every person has,” mentioned Viveiros.
Unlike the Golden Knights, Vegas’ American Hockey League affiliate have had no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the workforce. Nevertheless, they did feel the penalties of the virus in their last exhibition game.
AHL officials suspended and then cancelled the Knights game with the San Jose Barracudas following two intervals, owing to a favourable lab outcome from the visiting locker room.
“This time that we are all heading via below, the situation is generally fluid, you never know what is actually likely to materialize so you have to anticipate the unforeseen,” said Viveiros. “It truly is a little something we’re prepared for as significantly as we can be I guess. Nothing at all that’s offered to us or a little something takes place here is everything that we have not witnessed by now below, we are just making an attempt to continue to be as prepared as substantially as we potentially can in scenario some thing happens.”
The Silver Knights strike the road for their initial game titles absent from The Orleans this weekend in Bakersfield.
Viveiros said COVID-19 travel protocols in the AHL are equivalent to that of the NHL.
“We are in a hotel, we’re in our own very little bubble, we are in our rooms, not likely out to consume, almost everything is in house even though we’re traveling alongside one another. We’re fortunate to just take two buses to break up everyone up and we will break up our team and workers in two buses, that is the best way, our health-related persons say to avert any important outbreaks.”
“We are hunting ahead to it,” reported Viveiros. “It really is an prospect to get absent on the street a small little bit, our coaches and workers to get to know every other a minor bit, sometimes road trips are the very best matters for that, for us to get jointly and shell out that time together.”
