Dawson Mercer Takes on the VMAs Black Carpet | BLOG

Dawson Mercer is certainly hoping to be a part of some big moments at Prudential Center, as the 20-year-old enters his second NHL season. His hockey skills will certainly drive those big moments, but on Sunday night, he was part of another, the non-hockey big moment at Prudential Center, the 2022 MTV VMA’s.

Mercer, along with Arthur Kade, was posted up along the signature black carpet ready to meet and interview the performers as they made their way into the Prudential Center.

It was a long way from home in Newfoundland, but Mercer handled himself like a champ.
