Vegas Golden Knights forward Jack Eichel made the mistake of leaving a few things in his locker as he rushed to meet with TNT after Wednesday night's 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.
Seen under Eichel's no. 9 stall was a black wig, pair of retro sunglasses, and an iPad on Spotify with "Dancing Queen" by ABBA on pause. The media was naturally curious about what was assumed to be a postgame celebration, and Eichel broke it down postgame.
"They've (the glasses and wig) been going from the majority of the year. I think we ordered them at the beginning of the year. Yeah, we got Elvis, glasses, and the Elvis wig," said Eichel, who scored two goals in the Golden Knight's victory.

As one of the leaders on the team, Eichel admitted he is one of the go-to DJs in the locker room, although he admits that Shea Theodore and massage therapist Raul Dorantes get the AUX frequently.
“We have a bunch of songs that we kind of go to as a team. We have our win song and there are a few more that when they get played it kind of gets all the guys going. It's been a lot of fun,” said Eichel.
Eichel revealed that "Never Going Home" by Kungs is the Golden Knight's postgame locker room victory song.
Given that the VGK knocked off the best team in the Metropolitan division, you're free to have a listen.
