Silver Knights to open Lifeguard Arena on Tuesday

The Henderson Silver Knights will open the doors to their practice facility, Lifeguard Arena, at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The 120,000-square-foot hockey facility, built in partnership in Henderson, will give the Silver Knights a home while helping expand the Golden Knights’ youth programs. The Silver Knights will play their games at Orleans Arena for two years before a new rink is built at the Henderson Event Center.

Lifeguard Arena, which has a similar design to City National Arena, features two sheets of ice, retail space, meeting space and team space for the Silver Knights. It will also have a McKenzie River Pizza restaurant and Public Works Coffee Bar that will open at a later date.

The Silver Knights’ retail store on site will open at 10 a.m. and have the team’s jerseys, which will be revealed Monday night, on sale.
