Golden Knights Wrap: Five Years #VegasStrong



No matter which way you count, the Vegas Golden Knights play regular season hockey in less than 10 days. Season six is almost upon us, as we are entering the final week of training camp.

Yesterday was Oct. 1, the Remembrance Day of the 2017 Las Vegas Shooting. The Golden Knights were out in the community in an attempt to give back to the wonderful men and women first responders.

I was in high school back in Pennsylvania when this shooting happened, and cannot imagine the horrors that day brought here to Las Vegas. Rest in peace to all those who lost their lives senselessly. 

Las Vegas Sun: Great piece here. An oral history on the 5-year anniversary of Oct. 1. Accounts from members of the Golden Knights, past and present, are included.

Now onto the news and notes from around the National Hockey League.

Cuts: The Golden Knights have made their second batch of roster cuts. Here’s the full list of every player sent down to the Henderson Silver Knights and to their respective junior teams.

Sheldon Rempal, Byron Froese, Brayden Pachal, and Michael Hutchinson have been placed on waivers.

Free Agency: The Golden Knights signed development camp walk-on Joe Fleming to a three-year entry-level contract. He’s the definition of a bruiser and an all-around fun player to watch.
