Vegas is the first team in NHL history to reach 100 points in their inaugural season.
The Golden Knights hold a seven-point lead over San Jose in the Pacific Division despite a 2-1 overtime loss to the Sharks on Thursday night. "It's a huge number. Definitely satisfied and happy with that," coach Gerard Gallant said. "What do we got, eight games left in the season? So let's keep adding on to the points, but it's definitely a huge feat for our group so far." Mar 23 - 12:04 PM

After being virtually unbeatable at home for most of the season, the Golden Knights have dropped their last four games at T-Mobile Arena.

As Vegas beat writer Steve Carp so cleverly put it, "Guess the house doesn't always win". Vegas will still make the playoffs, which is a monumental achievement for an expansion club. However, it is questionable how deep a run they will be able to sustain. In any event, it has been a joy to watch the Golden Knights play this season.

The Vegas Golden Knights are second in the NHL in takeaways.

That's amazing for an expansion team but everything they have done this season is amazing. They have 642 takeaways this season, second to only Carolina, and are over 100 ahead of the third place Rangers.

Vegas won for the 33rd time on Tuesday night with a late comeback victory over Calgary.

The win tied the Golden Knights with the Florida Panthers (1993-94) and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (1993-94) for most wins by an expansion team in their inaugural season. Vegas leads the Western Conference with 70 points and they sit second overall in the league with a 33-12-4 record.

The Vegas Golden Knights have not allowed a power play goal in their last 23 attempts.

The Golden Knights have jumped up to 13th overall in penalty killing efficiency with their recent outstanding play. "When your PK is good, it starts with goaltending," Knights coach Gerard Gallant said Sunday after the team’s 40-minute practice at City National Arena. "We talk about special teams a lot. They can win you a lot of hockey games." It's just another reason to love the expansion team this season.

As implausable as it may have seemed when the season started, Gerard Gallant will coach the Pacific Division in the All-Star game.

The honor goes to the coach on the team with the best record in the division and Vegas has a five-point lead and a game in hand over second-place Los Angeles. It is truly amazing what Vegas has done in 40 games thus far posting a 28-10-2 record as an expansion team. It will be interesting to see if they can keep it up in the second half. Although we have been skeptical for a long time, we at Rotoworld are beginning to believe.

Most hockey experts predicted that the Vegas Golden Knights would struggle this season and deal their pending free agents for future assets at the trade deadline.

With the team doing so well (leading the Western Conference in winning percentage) GM George McPhee is at least willing to consider straying from his original plan. "Don't know that it's really changed anything", said McPhee. "We have a master plan, but as we all know, you go day to day in this business as well. We'll just keep our fingers on the pulse to continue to try and do what’s best for this club every day and in the long term." It will be interesting to see if Vegas can keep up their success and what McPhee does as a result.

Although Vegas' latest road trip didn't go as hoped, coach Gerard Gallant was happy with how the team played.

Vegas went just 1-4-1 on the road. "I’m happy with the way we’ve played on the road," Gallant said. "We just took some bad penalties at bad times. We had probably a five- or seven-minute lapse in a couple games on the road, but besides that, we played really good hockey. If we go on the road and play as well as we played last trip, I think we’ll win more points." Vegas earned a 5-2 win over Winnipeg on home Friday night, but now the Golden Knights are set for a two-game road trip that will take them to Edmonton and Vancouver.

The Vegas Golden Knights' penalty kill will be tested this afternoon in Ottawa

Vegas is near the bottom of the league in PK stats and the Senators are in the top 10 in power-play efficiency. We are certain Golden Knights' coach Gerard Gallant will be advising his team to stay out of the penalty box if they want to have a chance to break their current three-game losing streak. You might want to consider starting any Sens who get power-play ice time today given this matchup.

The Vegas Golden Knights might not name a captain this season.

The expansion team was able to acquire some interesting veterans, but they may not want to hand someone the "C" right away. "We may be better off just having a leadership group than naming one guy captain," general manager George McPhee said. "We really don't want to put a 'C' on a guy unless this is going to be the person that's going to lead us for a long time. We'd like to get to know these players a lot better than we know them right now."

The Vegas Golden Knights are working hard to build a strong fan base.

"Obviously, we're trying to build a fan base," head coach Gerard Gallant said. "It's going to take a lot of work, and it's going to take a lot of work from all our staff, not just the players. It's going to be the coaching staff. It's going to be the management and our office staff. You reach out. You do the events you can do. I mean, we know what's important is winning games, and that's how you build your hockey team also. The people that are working for our club, it's going to be a fine line of what to do and what not to do."

Ryan McGill has joined the Vegas Golden Knights as an assistant coach.

McGill spent the previous two seasons as the bench boss of the OHL's Owen Sound Attack. The Sound Attack had a 81-42-10-5 record under his tenure and McGill was named the CHL's coach of the year for the 2016-17 campaign. "We are very excited we were able to land Ryan as an assistant coach," said Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant. "We've got a nice blend of personalities on the bench and in the room now. Ryan has an impressive resume and a great reputation amongst the players and coaches who have worked with him."

Mike Kelly will serve as an assistant coach with the Vegas Golden Knights.

Kelly will be reunited with bench boss Gerard Gallant as they previously worked together as part of the Florida Panthers and QMJHL's Saint John Sea Dogs. Kelly also has experience working as an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks. "We are very proud of the addition of Mike to our team's coaching staff," said Vegas Golden Knights GM George McPhee. "His experience as a coach at various level within professional hockey and as a recent assistant coach under Gerard with the Panthers made him a well-rounded candidate. His familiarity with Gerard's coaching style and practices will make this a seamless transition for our club."

The Vegas Golden Knights will have a 72-hour window to present their submission list from the expansion draft.

The protected players lists will be provided to the Golden Knights at 10 a.m. on June 18 and they will have until 10 a.m. on June 21 to make their roster selections. Vegas can also sign any restricted or unrestricted free agent left unprotected during that time. The team will be revealed at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas on June 21.

Gerard Gallant has been named the first head coach of the Vegas Golden Knights.

Reports surfaced Wednesday night that this announcement was coming, but now it's official. In Gallant, the new franchise is getting a veteran coach with 327 games worth of experience as a bench boss between his stints with Columbus and Florida. He was also a Jack Adams Award finalist for leading the Panthers to the playoffs in 2014-15. "We are proud to announce Gerard as the first head coach in Vegas Golden Knights history," said Golden Knights GM George McPhee. "He is an experienced head coach, has had success at multiple levels and has a great reputation amongst the players who have played for him. We undertook a very detailed due diligence process over the last several months and canvassed a number of qualified head coaching candidates to ensure we found the best coach for our group. And we believe we have found that coach in Gerard. We look forward to working with him to build a team that our fans and our community are proud to support."
