The NHL’s Lake Tahoe Rink Looks Amazing & Ready To Go This Weekend

What a day it’s going to be in Lake Tahoe Saturday when the Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights will play with one of the most beautiful backdrops you’re ever going to see in professional hockey. The NHL literally went out and built a regulation rink on the shores of Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nevada at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort.

Two games will be played on the rink. Saturday’s Avs-Golden Knights game starts at 3 ET on NBC, while Sunday’s Bruins-Flyers game will start at 2 ET on NBC. Both games will be regular-season contests. The rink for the games was built on the 18th fairway of the resort’s golf course.

There are tents for locker rooms that will also have training equipment. “Flanking the TV tower are two tents that will house GM booths, the off-ice officials who record real-time statistics, and the game production crew,” NHL.com’s Nicholas J. Cotsonika reported this week. “They will be made to look woodsy. NHL chief content officer Steve Mayer is calling them collectively ‘the chalet.’

“Behind them are two tents that will serve as the locker rooms, complete with lockers; training, medical and equipment areas; and restrooms. The only thing they won’t have is showers. The players will have to clean up at their hotel.”

As for Saturday’s weather forecast, it’s going to be a chamber of commerce day, according to Weather.com: 37, sunny, a couple of passing clouds, 10-15 mph winds.
