.Pro Roster

 

Forwards:    A. Panarin, J. Eichel, T. Teravainen, M. Ferland, R. Faksa, B. Ryan, A. Cogliano, J. Hughes, M. Joseph, S. Noesen,

      

 

Defence:      B. Burns, Z. Werenski, R. Dahlin, N. Zadorov, M. Pysyk, J. Oesterle.

                                                                                       

 

Goalie:          C. Primeau, A. Lyon, K. Kinkaid

 

 

Off Season Team Needs:      2RW, 2LW,top 4 D, Starting Goalie

 

 

Free Agency:            The Knights need an entire 2nd line but when you have Jack Hughes, you keep that spot open to give him a chance to play with quality wingers.

 

If you include a starting Goalie and a top 4 D Vegas just doesn’t have enough cap space to fill those 4 spots.

 

The Knights GM’s will have to use some imagination to figure out a way to fill all of the spots they need to fill if they want to compete with the top teams in the DCHL.

               

 

2020 / 2021 Season Outlook:    Vegas has a good enough team to make the playoffs but has mentioned earlier they need to improve the top 6 up front, add a top 4 D and a starting Goalie if they want to make a deep run in the playoffs.

 

Also, the Knights need to be careful, because they will have many RFA’s looking for raises over the next 3 years, they can’t get themselves in Cap hell just to win now.

 

 

Top Prospects / Under 25’s:      J. Eichel, J. Hughes, M. Joseph, J. Anderson-Dolan, E. Tolvanen, I. Lunderstom, D. Rymsha, Z.Werenski, R. Dahlin, D. Samorukov, A. Neilsen, A. Peeke, F. Allard, S. Durzi, C. Primeau, B. McLaughlin, E. Afanasyev, P. Dorofeyev, A. Thomas, T. Smith, M. Samuelsson, E. Rasanen, R. Laavainen, D. Tarasov.

 

 

Future Outlook:     The future is bright for the Vegas franchise, the GM’s were able to acquire a lot of young talent and add talented players to help the team right now.

 

But with young players like Hughes, Dahlin, Werenski, Thomas, Lundestrom, Ty Smith and Cayden Primeau in nets the Golden Knights fans will have many opportunities to celebrate wins in the near future.
