The Next Wave NHL
VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS
SUMMARY
The Golden Knights did one thing in the expansion draft well, and that was load up on draft picks, and by and large, make good selections. That gives them a pretty decent pool of potential top line players. Also supplemented by some secondary pieces who have gaps in their game, Vegas looks good for the future, and not just for an expansion team

UP
Jake Bischoff, completed a successful NCAA career and will get a chance to show if his offense is going to translate from college to the pro's Vegas' D is deep, so he likely will spend the year in the AHL.

DOWN
Shea Theodore, at onetime was expected to be the next great Ducks dman, but his lack of physicality, and issues defensively had him low man on the totem pole in Anaheim when it came to making him available. He should get every chance in Vegas to establish himself as a legit top 4 dman.

WHO TO WATCH
Alex Tuchhas a chance to establish himself as a top 6 player in the NHL, after an up and down season last year in the AHL, it's a big year and opportunity for him to get his stock back on track.

TEAM RANK - 7th
