The Vegas Golden Knights announced the players participating in the 2023 Rookie Faceoff presented by Martin-Harris Construction. There will be a total of 28 players participating.

All eyes will be on forward Brendan Brisson. Drafted No. 29 overall by the Golden Knights in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, Brisson is expected to take a major step forward. Brisson had 37 points in 58 games with the Henderson Silver Knights last season. The 21-year-old expects to be very noticeable in the rookie games.

Another focus will be on the goaltenders. Jiri Patera figures to be the starter for the Silver Knights. Patera will get the first call to the Golden Knights if Adin Hill or Logan Thompson gets injured.

Isaiah Saville, Jesper Vikman, and Jordan Papirny will be competing to back up Patera in Henderson.

Golden Knights fans will get their first look at 2023 draft picks Mathieu Cataford, Arttu Karki, and Tuomas Uronen. David Edstrom, the Golden Knights 2023 first-round pick, is not listed on the roster.
