Hello everyone and welcome to Vegas Hockey Now. We are launching at a unique time – the Vegas Golden Knights have just bowed out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, losing the Western Conference Final to the Dallas Stars. But there’s no time like the present to talk about one of the deepest teams in the NHL and the oddball season that was.
SO IT ENDS, SO IT BEGINS
I look forward to doing many things with you on this site. We will take a look back and examine the good and bad. We will also look forward to potential changes, cap considerations, and prospects in the pipeline. Plus I know that every player has a story, and I look forward to telling a few of those too.
We will provide a lot of free content for everyone, and for the more hardcore hockey fan, we offer premium subscription to VHN+ as well.
We’re proud to be a part of the National Hockey Now network of sites including our flagship Pittsburgh Hockey Now, and venerable beat writing professionals Adrian Dater with Colorado Hockey Now and George Richards’ Florida Hockey Now. We also have our flag planted in Boston, New York, and check out former VGK beat writer Sheng Peng in San Jose.
In total, we’re now seven markets strong and more are coming!
A little about me: I spent five years doing play-by-play for the Nashville Predators and have broadcasted professional hockey for almost 20 years. I’ve seen a lot of games at every level, and appreciate not only the speed and grace of the NHL level but the grind and determination it takes to make it from the minor or junior hockey. When it comes to judging a player, I want to see him play and how he performs. I’m not much of a fancy stats guy but believe they have their time and place. Hey, I’ve worked in sales. Numbers can be made to show anything you want.
You’ll find I strive for objective coverage, even when it means having an unpopular opinion or going against the grain. I’m not beholden to anyone but you, the loyal Vegas Golden Knights fans. It’s my job to break things down, explain them, and let you decide for yourself what to think. You may not always agree with me, but I look forward to the back-and-forth talking about the best sport in the world.
Thank you for joining us here at Vegas Hockey Now. I’m looking forward to the journey with you.
Yours in Hockey,
