s23 - New-look Golden Knights [WB1]


Vegas, NV - Now that the offseason appears over and preseason action is underway it’s safety to conclude the Vegas Golden Knights we’re not happy with their season 22 performance.

Missing the playoffs narrowly led Golden Knights General Manager David Zammit to turn over half the clubs roster in the offseason (with only 11 players are returning).

Why don’t we start with the team landing a pair of top six centre’s in Henrik Sedin and Mike Fisher. The first came early via the trade market with San Jose as Sedin was bought up for a 1st, 2 2nds, and Brett McLean. And Fisher was inked to a great deal to round out free agency.

“I wanted a true number one centre to add some skill to our lineup and I went after it by trade,” Zammit told the media as training camp opened up. “I got lucky and convinced Fisher to sign a fairly team friendly deal as well.”

Between the pipes also saw the Golden Knight revamp the position. They traded starter Roberto Luongo and backup Johan Holmqvist. And bought out rookie Alex Stalock. They were able to land the best goalie on the free agent market in Marc-Andre Fleury to a four year deal with an average annual value around $5.4 million. They also signed backup Ray Emery to a four-year contract.

“I was thrilled to see MAF agree to come to Vegas,” Zammit said. “I’ve been searching for a legit top flight starting goalie for awhile now and I hoped Luo would be that and he wasn’t last year. I’m hoping Fleury is this year.”

The defence saw some movement as well as for the second summer, Robyn Regehr signed with the Golden Knights. The team also traded for Dennis Seidenberg and signing 7th defenceman Kevin Klein.

To help fill out the bottom six, Tomas Fleischmann signed a sweetheart deal on a four year term to be the fourth line centre. The club also promoted Shawn Matthias and Nikolai Kulemin. All three will carry most of the forward penalty killing minutes and Matthias will get a shot on a second powerplay unit too.
