If we're being honest, it's a part of innate human nature to occasionally check up on our exes. In most cases, we want them to be doing well, just maybe not too well - or at least not better than us. Those same sensibilities apply to players who have moved on from your favorite team. There remains some attachment from your time cheering for them, but now they sport another jersey and will actively, at least once or twice a season, be trying to win at your team's expense. For any fond memories you may have and even if the split wasn't acrimonious, the bond simply isn't the same. Vegas Golden Knights fans aren't particularly familiar with tracking the goings-on of prominent former players plying their trade elsewhere. Part of that, of course, stems from the relative infancy of the franchise. But there's also been considerable stability, with six players who suited up for the franchise's inaugural game still on the roster. Like any organization, though, goodbyes are a...

Cody Glass was selected sixth overall by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. He has spent some time in the NHL, but the young player was limited due to the depth of the Vegas roster. He was given an opportunity with the higher-end players, but ultimately it was not his time to receive a full-time roster spot. However, with the Golden Knights trading Paul Statsny to the Winnipeg Jets in a salary dump, it seems Glass will have an everyday role with the team for the 2020-21 season. Wing or Center Glass is unique because he can play down the middle or on the wing. This allows him to be used on any line. It is looking like he will end up centering either the second or third line depending on where head coach Peter DeBoer will put Chandler Stephenson. With that being said, there is also a chance that he could be paired with Alex Tuch on the third line to create a high-scoring, explosive duo lower in the lineup. This possibility comes from the emergence of Nicolas...

An expansion draft is a time of change in any sports league. Adding a new franchise shakes up the routine, creating immediate buzz, speculation, and hype about what the future will be for not only the new guys but also your team of choice. The Vegas Golden Knights expansion was an interesting time for the Tampa Bay Lightning. Despite missing the 2017 Playoffs by a single point, the Bolts were still seen as one of the franchises to beat, with a roster full of talent that carried them to at least Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final in 2015 and 2016. Due to this depth, the franchise had some prime talent for the Golden Knights to draw from. From budding first-round picks to veteran players who could start on day one, there were a number of Lightning players that could have been the right choice for Vegas at the time.
