After a major overtime win over a division rival, Vegas got on his bus to leave the SAP Center with no idea where they were going.
In one of the strangest stories for getting out of the strangest 12 month stretch, the Downtown San Jose Fairmont Hotel where the Golden Knights were staying suddenly closed on Friday afternoon just before the team left for their game against the Sharks .
“This is a first for probably everyone on our team,” Golden Knights defender Nick Holden said, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
I guess so.
Golden Knights head coach Pete DeBoer was still in shock when he spoke about it at the team’s morning kate on Saturday.
“It was a surreal experience. Hopefully this is the end of the COVID year, but it was almost the topping-out of what the last year was for everyone in the world. Just another thing that was thrown at you, another Thing to be done with.
“Not that I put it in the same breath as COVID, but it was just one of the things we threw ourselves into. We looked into it and found a way to get off to a good start, so a good one Resilience from our group, “said DeBoer.
Downtown Fairmont has been crushed by the troubled hotel and travel industries, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The owners filed for bankruptcy after accumulating massive debts of “between $ 100 million and $ 500 million”. The hotel expects to reopen within two to three months after finding and refinancing a management partner.
It looks like the league needs to find a new “isolation hotel” for visitors to San Jose to rest.
