It was an impressive event that built excitement for the Silver Knights to hit the ice. The Name: the Silver Knights This one is a bit obvious, but the name "Silver Knights" pays homage to the parent franchise of the Golden Knights. It was the betting favorite going into the reveal, but the simplicity of the choice should play well. Henderson can build off the Golden Knights brand, which is already a proven success, while maintaining a fan...

Vegas Golden Knights

The Hockey Writers recently completed a full seven-round mock draft, and I had the privilege of drafting for the Vegas Golden Knights. While the attention has been turned to the playoffs following the league's return-to-play announcement, it's never too early to take stock of what prospects the team could get their hands on come the draft. The rules were simple: picks were awarded based on league standings, and no trades were allowed. All the "general managers" could do was pick a player and then move on. Conditional picks were traded instead of retained. Related: Best Late-Round NHL Draft Picks With this in mind, it's time to assess how I did. Despite prior moves, the Golden Knights were able to add five players to their prospect pool in this mock draft. The process began with pick number 24. 24. Braden Schneider What was I thinking?

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...
