The Vegas Golden Knights are hosting the 2020 Fortress Invitational, January 3-4 in Las Vegas. Tickets for the event go on sale to the public Monday, Aug. 19 with select presale options available starting Wednesday, Aug. 14.
The Golden Knights will be inviting four collegiate hockey teams to T-Mobile Arena to showcase their skills and give fans the chance to see some of the sport's future stars. The competing squads are the Ohio State Buckeyes, Providence Friars, Cornell Big Red, and the Army Black Knights.
Several of the players scheduled to compete have ties to the Golden Knights. Ohio State forward Gustaf Westlund was invited to Vegas's development camp this offseason, after being named the Buckeyes' Freshman of the Year. Providence forward Jack Dugan was drafted by the Vegas Golden Knights in 2017 and still has his sights set on playing for the team, even as he was the second highest-scoring freshman hockey player in the entire country last season.
The two-day tournament will feature plenty of non-stop action on the ice. Army will play Providence on Friday at 5 pm, followed by Ohio State vs. Cornell at 8:30 pm. The winners of those two games will determine the lineup for Saturday's matches, which will begin at 5:30 pm with the final game starting at 9 pm.
