Golden Knights Prospects

A little over a month ago, I made the case that Vegas Golden Knights prospect Jack Dugan was NHL-ready, and would be a part of the squad for the 2020-21 season. Last week, Vegas general manager Kelly McCrimmon announced that the forward out of Providence College has agreed to join the Golden Knights organization. We are pleased to have the opportunity to continue to play a key role in the development of Jack Dugan as both a hockey player and as a young man within our organization... Jack took significant steps in his growth over the past two seasons as one of the best all-around players in college hockey, and has proven that he is ready for the next challenge in his young career.Knights' GM Kelly McCrimmon via NHL.com Although Dugan has not yet officially signed the deal, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports that the sides have agreed on a two-year entry-level contract beginning with the 2020-21 season (from ‘When will Jack Dugan play for the Golden Knights?,’ The...

Vegas Golden Knights

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. As it stands, the Vegas Golden Knights are in eighth place in the league, meaning they would pick 24th. This draft is supposed to be one of the deepest in recent memory, so it would be best to stock the prospect cupboard with another future asset. There is no question that Alexis Lafrenière will be picked first overall and the top-10 is forward heavy, but the first round is loaded with talent and there are several defensemen who should be picked in the second half of round one. This series will dive into who the Golden Knights should select with their first-round pick. Related: Golden Knights' 2020 Draft Target - Jeremie Poirier As mentioned, their exact pick is undetermined and could be higher or lower depending on if the league resumes (or doesn’t). No matter how the 2019-20 season ends, it will...

Vegas Golden Knights

With all due respect to Vancouver and Edmonton — both absolutely lovely cities — (if) when the NHL gets down to making the hard decisions of which four cities will host the divisional playoff tournaments, there is really no choice when it comes to the Pacific Division. Las Vegas is the only real choice. Follow along as I lay out the clear case for Las Vegas to host the Pacific Division playoff rounds. Welcome to Las Vegas sign (photo: madlyinlovewithlife CC) For the purpose of this article we will use the current rumor of the day — a 24-team expanded playoff format. The Main Ingredients While there are literally dozens of points that will need to be agreed upon between the league, the players association, and the host city, there are five absolute musts; housing for teams and support staff, availability of ice for practice and games, addressing safety, the ability to create and maintain a bubble, and how to safely produce the games for TV. Housing the Players and...

Golden Knights History

The most successful team in the National Hockey League made plenty of noise on this date throughout the years. May 16 also featured plenty of overtime drama, broken records and raised Stanley Cups. Canadiens Rule the Day When you’ve won as many Stanley Cups as the Montreal Canadiens have, you are going to have a lot of memories during the month of May. On May 16, 1971, Jean Beliveau picked up two assists in a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final. These were the final two points of Beliveau’s legendary career as he announced his retirement shortly after the Canadiens win Game 7. He retired with 176 career playoff points, which were the most in NHL history at the time. The Canadiens ended the two-year championship run of the Philadelphia Flyers on May 16, 1976. Guy Lafleur and Wayne Stephenson score in the third period to lead the way to a 5-3 win, completing a four-game sweep. This was Montreal’s 19th Stanley Cup win and their first of...
