Expect to see some action from NHL affiliated players Jake Leschyshyn (Vegas Golden Knights), Nick Henry (Colorado Avalanche) and a pair on the NHL Central Scouting Players To Watch List – Koby Morrisseau (projected fourth to seventh round), Nikita Sedov (projected fourth to seventh round).

Celebrate Pet Night with Paws on Cook, which hosts a draw that night.

As pets are not allowed to attend the game, fans are encouraged to post a picture of their pet or pets showing their Royals’ spirit on the team’s Facebook page and it could be featured on the jumbotron during the game.

Second intermission also includes the Paws on Cook Fitness Relay Race – where contestants compete in a relay race for the chance to win a prize.
