Vegas Golden Knights players buy pizza for less fortunate in Edmonton

While NHL players spend time inside the bubble, some of them are finding ways to make a difference in the community.

A number of players on the Vegas Golden Knights made a meaningful contribution this week, buying pizza for some of Edmonton’s less fortunate residents. The Knights, along with 11 other NHL teams, are currently inside a “secure zone” in the Edmonton bubble, which includes Rogers Place, an events plaza, and three surrounding hotels.

NHL players, coaches, and staff are not allowed to interact with the community beyond the bubble — not physically, anyway.

Boyle Street Community Services, a charitable organization located near Rogers Place, says that the Knights bought pizza for some of its community members. The organization supports people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Edmonton.

“Huge thank you to the Vegas Golden Knights for buying pizza for our community members on this beautiful day!” says the organization. “We always appreciate any support from NHL teams, who are playing across the street at Rogers Place.”

A Golden Knights spokesperson told Daily Hive that the players prefer to remain anonymous and that they “weren’t looking for any publicity or fanfare.”

Here’s to a classy and touching gesture, whoever was behind it.
