Golden Knights Getting Positive Reviews From "VGK University" Package For Fans

The Golden Knights have launched a program that allows fans to "experience five film sessions" with Senior VP Murray Craven and Dir of Hockey Operations Misha Donskov, along with a "pre-game skate on the ice at T-Mobile Arena," according to Jesse Granger of the LAS VEGAS SUN. Fans can purchase the VGK University package for $495, which comes with a "ticket to five games" as well as an "hour-long class and a skating session prior to each game." In the first session, Craven and Donskov "set the groundwork with an introduction to hockey, and on the second session they went into an in depth analysis of how NHL teams create offense." Fans are "given a notepad with hockey rink diagrams so they can take notes along the way." Craven: “We want people to be able to leave here and have a much better appreciation for the game and be able to appreciate what’s happening out there on the ice." Granger noted the 50 spots for VGK University "sold out quickly, but the team said it plans to hold another enrollment if they continue to get good results during the current one" (LAS VEGAS SUN, 12/16).
