Last Thursday, the Vegas Golden Knights published their rookie camp roster, which featured 28 potentialities from the workforce’s device. Today marked the primary day of camp with avid gamers doing off-ice coaching and scientific checking out.
Most of rookie camp will likely be away in San Jose, because the Golden Knights will compete within the Rookie Faceoff Tournament from September 16-19. Tomorrow at 10:00 am is the one time you’ll be able to catch those potentialities in motion at City National Arena.
The VGK will then hit the street to play in opposition to the potentialities of the San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks, Arizona Coyotes, and Colorado Avalanche.
Here’s the VGK’s time table. You can song into all video games on OX Sports Las Vegas 98.9FM/1340 AM.
9/16- VGK v ARZ 4:30 pm, Orange Rink, Sharks Ice at San Jose.
9/17- VGK v LAK 2:00 pm, Tech CU Arena.
9/19- VGK v ANA 12:30 pm, Orange Rink, Sharks Ice at San Jose.
Prospects to Watch
Easily the most important prospect the Golden Knights have no longer solely on this camp however of their complete group is Brendan Brisson. The 2020 first-round pick out has the most efficient likelihood of cracking a roster spot this season for the VGK after he signed his ELC.
Brisson is a dynamic offensive scorer who has performed for Team USA on the Olympics, along different best NHL potentialities on the University of Michigan, and maximum just lately with the Henderson Silver Knights.
He can play each middle and wing, and his skillset makes him the most important spotlight of rookie camp. Expect Brisson’s trail to the NHL not to solely be a tale on this camp however in same old coaching camp subsequent week.
Now a 2022 World Junior Gold Medalist, Lukas Cormier is an offensively-gifted Canadian defenseman who has proven flashes of greatness in his junior profession.
He has gained the Emile Bouchard trophy the previous two seasons within the QMJHL, which is largely the Q’s Norris Trophy, signifying the league’s very best defenseman.
With the Golden Knight’s protection set and Kaedan Korczak recently being upper at the intensity chart, it’s not likely that we can see the 20-year-old defenseman this season within the NHL.
But as Senator Palpatine as soon as mentioned, “We will watch your career with great interest!”
Another first-round pick out, Zach Dean, has a bit of extra building to head thru earlier than he may also be thought to be in a position for the NHL. At simply 19 years outdated, the centerman Dean is coming off a 52-point marketing campaign in 47 video games with Gatineau within the Q.
He’s every other forged prospect the Golden Knights will glance to expand at this yr’s rookie camp and into the long run.
I sought after to incorporate William Riedell as a result of he’s recently the one participant signed to a pro tryout with the Golden Knights.
He is an undrafted 25-year-old two-way defenseman who just lately made his skilled hockey debut with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL after 5 years in faculty.
I’m curious to peer what control sees in Riedell and why he, of all avid gamers, used to be given a PTO. Again, the Golden Knight’s protection is about, however he generally is a forged upload to the HSK.
Logan Thompson has the purple carpet layed out for him to grow to be the starter for the Vegas Golden Knights this season. So this implies the Silver Knights will want a new everlasting starter.
Isaiah Saville signed a three-year ELC with the Golden Knights in March of 2022. He is a 21-year-old American goaltender popping out of the University of Nebraska-Omaha.
With Thompson, Adin Hill, Laurent Brossoit, Michael Hutchinson, and if you wish to come with him, Robin Lehner, making up the Golden Knights goalie intensity, Saville will most probably no longer play within the NHL this season both.
But his building might be key to the Golden Knight’s goaltending within the close to long term, with Thompson making the most probably everlasting bounce to the NHL.
