The team said that Robone is out of surgery and in intensive care.

The UNLV hockey Facebook page said early Monday morning that every player on the team was accounted for and safe.

Authorities have said that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire at concert goers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, which was located across the street from the concert.

It is the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history, after more than 50 people were killed and 400 injured.
