HENDERSON (FOX5) -- With shattered glass and busted drywall, the Vegas Golden Knights entered a new era bringing hockey to Henderson.

The Golden Knights, along with City of Henderson officials, began the demolition of Henderson Convention Center Monday morning during the "Knock Down, Knight Up" event.

Though the event was not originally open to the public, many fans attended to see defenseman Deryk Engelland shoot a puck through the convention center  windows.

The Golden Knights will continue to practice at their facility in Summerlin. The Henderson facility is expected to be complete sometime in July 2020.
