Vegas shooting survivors name daughter after Knights player


Via KLAS-TV, a couple that survived the October 1, 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas had a baby girl not too long ago and named her after Reilly Smith of the Vegas Golden Knights.

The couple, Lauren and Brad Sugars, explained to  KLAS-TV that the idea to name their daughter Reilly was heavily influenced by the effect the Golden Knights had on the community following the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival that killed 58 people.

“Route 91 was a very big negative, but our city turned it into a really big positive, and I think the Golden Knights has been a really big part of that,” Brad Sugars said. “It’s helped immensely to have something positive to focus on.”

Reilly (the infant, not the hockey player) was born May 18, the same day the Golden Knights beat the Winnipeg Jets to advance to the Stanley Cup finals.
