Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland wrote a 'This is for Las Vegas' article for the Player's Tribune and explained what it was like playing in the city after the mass shooting.

In the article, Engelland describes how the team felt after the attack and how they believed it was their responsibility to raise the spirits of the city.

At the end of the article, Engelland writes, "Our team will continue to do everything we can to help those who were affected by this senseless tragedy. We are not just strong, we are Vegas Strong."

The Golden Knights have done just that by starting off the season with a miraculous 7-1 record, which is good for second in the NHL's Pacific Division.
