Los Angeles Kings to Honor Las Vegas Victims, Including Slain Employee

One victim they will honor is 22-year-old Christiana Duarte, who worked for the team as a Fan and Services Associate.

The Los Angeles Kings will honor the shooting victims of the recent Las Vegas massacre, including one of their own employees.

The team will sport a helmet adorned with a heart sticker that displays their slain employee's initials for at 7 p.m. for Thursday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers at Staples Center.

Twenty-two year old Christiana Duarte of Torrance was in her first year working for the hockey team as a Fan and Services Associate. She had recently graduated from the University of Arizona.

"In just a brief period of time, Chrissy has an immeasurable impact on all of us," the LA Kinds President Luc Robitaille said in a statement. "We want to make every effort to ensure that everyone knows how special she was and the impact she already had made on so many people."

Her heartbroken family describes her as a sweet and diligent woman who had a bright future ahead of her.

Duarte attended the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival with her brother and his girlfriend when a gunman opened fire on the concertgoers.

To commemorate the slain victims of the massacre, the hockey team will hold a moment of silence and present a special video before the game starts. They will also take a moment to salute the first responders who were on the scene on Sunday.
