Shea Theodore is trying to do all he can to make Vegas' roster.

Theodore picked up one assist and six shots in 23:12 of ice time in Sunday's 9-4 preseason win against Vancouver. He quarterbacked the power play and played 8:04 with the man advantage. Theodore doesn't have to clear waivers to be sent to the minors, which is weighing on his mind, but he thinks he has what it takes to stay with the Golden Knights. "I'm here to play the best hockey I can and make the team," Theodore said. "In the back of my head, I know about the waiver exempt option, but you have to come in with a glass half-full mindset. I'm here to make the team and do what I can to stick on the blue line. That's all I can do. I'm not shy to the business side of it. I dealt with that for two years in Anaheim going between (the Ducks and AHL). But when I'm playing well, I know can play against anyone."

Shea Theodore believes he is ready to be a full-time NHLer with the Golden Knights.

"It's definitely a lot about confidence. I know I saw that last year when I was playing consistently with Anaheim, I felt like that's when I was playing my best, I was playing well and playing a lot of minutes," Theodore said. "I'm going to be coming into camp in the best shape I can and try to secure a spot with Vegas." With the Ducks, he spent the last few seasons moving between the AHL and the NHL. He has five goals and 17 points in 53 career big-league appearances. Theodore has sleeper potential in 2017-18 if he becomes Vegas' power-play quarterback and he could be a top-four blueliner.

The Vegas Golden Knights have acquired Shea Theodore from the Anaheim Ducks.

Theodore, 21, had two goals and nine points in 34 games with Anaheim in 2016-17. He also had five goals and 20 points in 26 AHL contests. He was the Ducks' 26th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
