Reilly Smith feels fortunate to have some familiar faces with him on the Vegas Golden Knights.
Former Florida head coach Gerard Gallant and assistant Mike Kelly will be behind the bench for the Golden Knights. Jonathan Marchessault was also with Smith on the Panthers. Additionally, Smith knows Cody Eakin from their time together in Dallas. "It's a very exciting experience at the same time, because you're going to be the first person to do something new for a great franchise, so I think everyone is looking at it in that type of excitement," said Smith. "It's going to be fun when we get everything started." He notched 25 goals and 50 points in 82 games with Florida when Gallant was in charge during the 2015-16 campaign. Jul 27 - 6:13 PM

Florida coach Tom Rowe put much of the blame for Saturday night's 2-1 loss to Dallas on Reilly Smith, who left his check Jamie Benn alone on the winning goal.

Rarely does a coach blame an individual player for a loss, but Rowe seemed to do just that. "[Reimer] played great, but when the top guys are cheating for offense, it doesn’t help. It’s pretty simple,’’ Rowe spit out. "We’re not going to make the playoffs playing like that. … All I know is Reilly Smith is blowing the zone, doing exactly what he’s not supposed to do.’’ Yikes. If for some reason you are relying on Smith, we would bench him for now.
