Last week, Vegas general manager Kelly McCrimmon announced that the forward out of Providence College has agreed to join the Golden...

Golden Knights' 2020 Draft Target: Braden Schneider

May 18th, 2020 With the unfortunate pause of the 2019-20 season, no one knows if the 2020 NHL Draft will be held before or after there’s a decision on the remainder of the season.

Golden Knights History

This date has given us a little bit of everything over the years, including some very late regular-season games as well as Stanley Cup playoff milestones. Also, one of the greatest blueliners in National Hockey League history is celebrating his 50th trip around the sun. Goalie Power On April 28, 1970, Jacques Plante recorded his 14th and final career postseason shutout. He led the way in the St. Louis Blues’ to a 5-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, in Game 5 of the Western Division Semifinals, with Frank St. Marseille scoring a hat trick. Plante’s 14 shutouts have him tied with Dominik Hasek for the seventh-most in Stanley Cup playoff history. Plante's final season in St. Louis proved he had something left n the tank. (THW Archives) Patrick Roy of the Colorado Avalanche became the first goaltender to earn 16 shutouts in the playoffs on April 28, 2001. He hit the milestone by blanking the Los Angeles Kings 2-0, in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals. Roy...

Even though the season is not technically over, we were in the stretch run of the season. With only 11 games left and a return date not in sight, we thought this would be a great time to share our season awards and favorite moments. I'll be joined by fellow Hockey Writers staff Josh Bell, Eddie Rivkin, Will Stanton, and The Athletic's Jesse Granger to remember the season that was and dive into a potential first-round playoff matchup. Golden Knights Team Awards Team MVP Shea Theodore - Jesse Granger Shea Theodore wasn’t the best player on the team, but he was close. That honor goes to Mark Stone, and an argument could possibly be made for Max Pacioretty. However, Theodore was the most valuable player on the Golden Knights this season, considering his age, contract value and position. The 24-year-old was expected to improve this year, but not to the near-elite level that he did.  LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - SEPTEMBER 28: Shea Theodore #27 of the Vegas Golden Knights. ...

When you play a sport and accomplish a task as a team, it is something worth celebrating. Whether you hit a home run, score a touchdown or light the lamp, it makes you happy and creates an expression you want to let out. Scoring a goal while playing in the best hockey league in the world is definitely cause for celebration and Mark Stone is one of the best at showing his feelings. The Vegas Golden Knights forward has been recognized on Twitter as having some of the best cellys when he or his team scores. The hashtag "#ExpressiveMarkStone" has become a trend online and whenever they score a goal, you can bet there is a camera on him to catch his emotion.

He recorded 63 points in 65 games, only 10 points behind his career-high he set last season. Perhaps it is the fact that he was drafted at the...

It has been an up and down season for the Vegas Golden Knights. In mid-January, they were sitting outside of a playoff spot in the Western Conference, and as of the NHL pause, they have a three-point cushion at the top of the Pacific Division. The Vegas Golden Knights celebrate. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) While we wait for the season to resume, let's take a look at some of the best and worst moments from the Golden Knights' season so far. The Worst: An Early Losing Streak, Gerard Gallant Fired There have been tough moments for the team throughout the 2019-20 NHL season. It is difficult to pick from the lowest, but there are a couple that stand out: November 16th: 4-3 Loss to LA Kings At the time, the Golden Knights had lost four in a row and six of their last seven. They were 5th in the Pacific and on the outside of the playoff hunt. Related: 11 NHL Teams Without a Stanley Cup After their fourth loss, at home to the struggling Chicago Blackhawks, the...
