There was an emotional scene on Friday night in Dallas at the American Airlines Center before the Stars and Vegas Golden Knights dropped the puck.

Both teams stood together on the same side of the ice to honor the victims of the horrific mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

The Stars skated out behind the Golden Knights, who were preparing to debut as Las Vegas’ first professional sports franchise and held a moment of silence for the 59 people who were killed and the 489 who were wounded in the tragic attack outside the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Watch the emotional moment below.

“Tonight, Dallas stands with Vegas and those affected by the horrifying tragedy this past Sunday,” the public address announcer said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims of this terrible act. May they find strength and perseverance during this time of grieving.”

The Stars also honored their late graphic designer, Promise Hamilton, who was killed by a drunk driver this summer, and their play-by-play announcer, Dave Strader, who died of cancer Oct. 1.

Both the Stars and Golden Knights wore decals on their helmets to honor the Las Vegas victims.

Well done.
