Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz would like to see longtime Las Vegas resident Deryk Engelland score the team's first ever goal.
Bubolz said that would make the goal all the more "special." Engelland played in all 81 games with the Calgary Flames last season and he scored four times. He has 22 markers in 469 career contests, so picking him as the first goal scorer would likely be a long shot. Sep 14 - 7:00 PM

The Vegas Golden Knights have signed pending UFA Deryk Engelland, which will count as their pick from the Calgary Flames.

Engelland will earn $1 million in base salary, but he can pick up another $1 million in bonuses. Vegas was granted an early window to negotiate with UFAs, but anyone they signed during that time would be counted as an expansion draft pick tied to their former team. Engelland had 16 points and 85 penalty minutes in 81 games last season. He played for the ECHL's Las Vegas Wranglers at the start of his pro career, which might make him an early fan favorite.

The Flames will rest Deryk Engelland in Saturday's season finale against the Sharks.

With Troy Brouwer out of the lineup with a hand injury, Deryk Engelland will wear an "A" on his jersey.

The 34-year-old isn't known for his offensive production, but he's shown that he can be a leader both on and off the ice. Engelland has played in 425 career NHL games and regularly sticks up for teammates. He's also a calming presence on a young blue line that features Brett Kulak, Tyler Wotherspoon and Jyrki Jokipakka. We don’t make the decisions, the players do," head coach Glen Gulutzan said. "He’s stepped up for a lot of guys this year and stepped up for our team. That wasn’t a decision the coaches had to deliberate over."

Calgary has already been eliminated from the playoffs anyways, but it would be unfortunate to have Engelland's season end with him on the sidelines given how hot he's been lately. He has two goals and five points in his last five games after recording seven points in his first 64 contests.

Dery Engelland picked up a 10-minute game misconduct in Friday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

Truth is this wasn't so bad. The refs caught Engelland and Derek Dorsett jawing and roughing behind the play with 82 ticks left, and decided to stamp out the fire before things got out of hand. Before then, he also picked up five blocks so he had a great night for some poolies out there. Engelland is up to 36 PIMs this season.
