Avalanche to play outdoor game Feb. 20 at Lake Tahoe, per report – The Denver Post

In what is scheduled as an Avalanche home game, the team will play the Vegas Golden Knights in an outdoor game Feb. 20 in Lake Tahoe, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported Friday morning.

The game will be televised by NBC and part of a two-game event hosted by Edgewood Tahoe Resort, also featuring a Feb. 21 game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins.

“The NHL, searching for something different in a season where fan involvement will be extremely limited, scouted several locations for a scenic event,” Friedman wrote. “Fans will not be in attendance, with the number of people limited to about 400 — basically the teams’ traveling parties and whoever is needed to work. It will give television different opportunities to broadcast the games, such as drone cameras.”

The Feb. 20 game is part of a two-game series between the Avs and Golden Knights. They are also scheduled to meet Feb. 22 at Ball Arena in Denver.
