2021-22 Golden Knights Season Preview
Vegas surprisingly traded goalie Marc-AndrÃ© Fleury to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Fleury, 36, got the Golden Knights franchise off to a good start, helping them reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2018 and fight for a Cup in the past two seasons. He also hasn’t seen a drop last season, posting a 26-10-0 record, a 1.98 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage.
The Golden Knights will now be with Robin Lehner as the starting goalie. He was 13-4-2 for Vegas last season, allowing 2.29 goals per game and a .913 save percentage.
Lehner has never played more than 59 regular season games. Arguably his best outing was in 2018-19 with the New York Islanders when he posted a .930 save percentage in 45 games played.
Vegas also has backup goaltender Laurent Brossoit, who had some success last season with the Winnipeg Jets in 2020-21. He was 6-6-0 with a 2.42 goals-against average and .918 save percentage. He signed with Vegas as a free agent this summer.
The Golden Knights are hoping for a big season from right winger Evgenii Dadonov, who had 20 points last season in Ottawa. Dadonov had three big seasons of 47 or more points with the Florida Panthers before his one-year stint with the Senators. Dadonov joined the Golden Knights via a trade.
Likewise, Vegas will be looking for center Nolan Patrick to have a big season that is more like his first two in Philadelphia with 30 or more points each year. He had nine points last season in 52 games played before signing with the Golden Knights before training camp.
Vegas has its offensive tandem of forwards Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty back. Stone scored 21 goals and assisted 40 last season. Pacioretty scored 24 goals and 27 assists.
On the defensive side, the Golden Knights have back Alex Pietrangelo. He was over-under 20 last season and contributed 23 points on offense. Vegas also sacked Shea Theodore, who had an over-under of 28 and 42 points on offense.
Center Peyton Krebs set to have a breakout season according to James O’Brien of Pro Hockey Talk. Krebs has a “mix of playfulness and keen sense,” O’Brien wrote. The Golden Knights drafted him in the first round of the 2017 draft, and he’s spent most of the last three seasons in the minors.
Vegas has a favorable division, the Pacific, where only one other team finished above .500 last season – the Edmonton Oilers. The Golden Knights are expected to amass 103.9 points in the standings and they earned the third best odds to win the Stanley Cup. according to Athletic’s Dom Luszczyszyn.
