With the Las Vegas Golden Knight’s season in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start looking for new fans.
It’s been a roller coaster ride for Vegas, and it’s only been two games since the franchise first appeared on NHL Network.
There’s no better time to look ahead at what the Golden Knights might have in store in the near future.
The team is hoping to add a veteran presence with the likes of Justin Abdelkader, Justin Schultz and Anthony Duclair in addition to two young players in Joonas Korpisalo and David Perron.
« We’re excited about the opportunity to add another young, versatile player to our lineup, » general manager Jim Benning said in a press release.
« As we move forward, we want to build upon the solid foundation that we have built for years and improve upon our core group of players. »
The Golden Knights also signed former Carolina Hurricanes forward Ryan Johnston, who will likely fill in as a backup goalie for Schultz and Abdelkady.
« Ryan Johnston is a tremendous addition to our group and we look forward to his continued success in the AHL and our top professional leagues, » Benning told NHL.com.
« He’s a player that we like and have had success with in the past and will fit well into our team. »
The Vegas Golden Order is led by veteran center Taylor Hall, who has been a fixture for the team in the NHL since 2009-10.
He has a solid understanding of how to play the game, having made his debut with the team as a 17-year-old.
« I’m extremely excited about being part of this organization, » Hall told the team’s website.
I know that this organization is committed to making sure that I’m playing my best and contributing to the team, and being successful. » »
