LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Golden Knights weren’t the only ones smiling ear to ear after Saturday night’s win. One lucky and very talented Knights fan walked home with $30,000 from MGM Resorts after an intermission challenge during the Knights vs. Islanders game! VGK fan Ruben Lopez shot five straight goals from center ice into the net.
“I’m speechless, I don’t know what to say,” Ruben said in a quick interview that was posted on the Knights Twitter account. He also said he had never shot a puck before the game!
No one has ever managed to win the intermission competition before, BigD, the Knights’ arena host said. Each puck placed in the net earned Ruben a prize, but he managed to win the biggest prize of them all.
Ruben told the Knights that he plans on using the money for a down payment on a house.
