The Silver Knights received a major boost before their must-win game against the Colorado Eagles on Friday.
The team announced coach Manny Viveiros will be behind the bench for Game 2 of the team’s best-of-three series with the Eagles at Budweiser Events Center in Loveland, Colorado.
Viveiros took a medical leave of absence April 19 as part of his recovery from prostate cancer. It was his third of the season after a routine training camp physical in September led to his diagnosis.
The Silver Knights lost Game 1 to Colorado 5-2. They need to win two straight to advance to the next round of the Calder Cup playoffs.
