Goal-scoring from top-six forwards is an essential piece to an NHL team's success, and it tends to separate premier clubs from the rest of the league as the season progresses. And with the Vegas Golden Knights losing right winger James Neal to the Calgary Flames in free agency, this leaves a hole in the depth chart up front. The 30-year old forward was a mainstay on the second line and notched 25 goals last season, fourth-most on the team, while also adding six goals in the postseason. How should Vegas fill the void? Enter Artemi Panarin, a consistent 25 to 30-goal scorer who is only 26 years old and has one year left on his contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets. What Panarin Brings to Vegas Ever since he entered the league in 2015-16, the Blue Jackets forward has been a consistent goal scoring threat. Beginning his career with the Chicago Blackhawks, Panarin burst onto the scene as a rookie with 30 goals and 77 points in 80 games played, as both his goals and points totals...

The Vegas Golden Knights are still in on the Erik Karlsson trade sweepstakes, depending on who you believe. They have the cap space and, potentially, the trade chips available -- and adding a generational talent like Karlsson would surely help shore up a back-end that needs some help. But...at what cost? Perhaps the reason he has yet to be moved is that the price is HIGH -- reportedly as steep as two first-round picks, a high-end prospect, a couple good young players the Ottawa Senators can plug into their lineup right away, as well as the ability to absorb Bobby Ryan's albatross contract in the deal. Not many teams have the ability to do that, but the Golden Knights might be one such franchise. After locking up defenseman Colin Miller, the Golden Knights currently have roughly $15 million in available cap space, with restricted free agents William Karlsson, Shea Theodore, Tomas Nosek, and William Carrier yet to sign. Of course, some of these players might be pieces of...

Many hockey players are not only stars on the ice but are also heroes within their own communities. They use their platform as athletes and the aura of their team’s social and corporate responsibilities to participate in philanthropic initiatives that benefit individuals in their franchise’s city. The Vegas Golden Knights are entering their second full year of existence. Already, many of the players on the team are taking part in charitable events, benefiting underprivileged individuals living in Las Vegas. For a city that showcases glamour and charisma regularly, it is masked by an underlying economic disparity, where many families and young people are struggling socioeconomically. The Golden Knights have a prime opportunity to utilize partnerships within the community, in order to raise awareness and make a difference in improving social issues in Las Vegas.

The Vegas Golden Knights have signed goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to a three-year, $21 million contract extension, per Fleury and the Golden Knights via the Golden Knights official Twitter account. This deal will carry a $7 million cap hit starting in 2019-20 due to the fact that Fleury already had one year remaining on his current deal. He'll be under contract through the 2022-23 season. https://twitter.com/GoldenKnights/status/1017794856603680768 In his first season as a member of the Golden Knights - their first year in the league and Fleury's first away from the Pittsburgh Penguins following 13 seasons with the club, Fleury posted a very good 2.24 goals-against average and .927 save percentage en route to a 29-13-4 record. The Golden Knights were among the best teams in the NHL in their first season and while Fleury was hurt for a significant portion of the season, his performance in the 46 games he was a part of was as significant as any other performance from Golden...
