BILLINGS — Youth hockey players in Billings got a treat Tuesday as they were visited by parts of the Las Vegas Golden Knights hockey team.

The Knights are a fairly new team, in their third season, and each year do a caravan to bring Knights hockey to youth players around the northwest.

This season’s trip included Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Utah.

The team has several Montana connections as the Knights’ trainer is married to a woman from Billings.

In addition, Sage Simmons, communication director for the team is from Cut Bank, Montana.

Knights defenseman Jake Bischoff was present at Centennial Ice Arena on Tuesday to skate with the children. Bischoff, 24, is from Minnesota.

He re-signed a three year deal with the Knights through the 2021-2022 season.
