    Tonight the HFNHL Vegas Gold Knights embark on a franchise first. The 2019/20 HFNHL playoffs, this will be the first time the club has reach the post season in it’s now 3 year history. The opponent will be the Los Angeles Kings led by star players like Patrick Kane, Brad Marchand and Mark Scheifele just to name a couple. Vegas on the other hand will be led by some lesser known players such as Adam Henrique, Shea Theodore and Jack Campbell. Most of the experts are not expecting Vegas to win this series, but the club and fans are just excited to have made it to this point in it’s build.

    Some of the brief history of the Vegas Golden Knights, the teams first coach was and still is Mike Sullivan. Shortly after naming Sullivan has the coach of the franchise the Golden Knights acquired their first player. Daniel Sedin in a trade with the St.Louis Blues that seen the Golden Knights agree not to select Zdeno Chara, Andrew Shaw or Johan Larsson in the expansion draft. Sedin would go onto finish his career that year in Vegas with brother Henrik whom the Golden Knights signed in free agency.

    The clubs first ever entry draft pick was 6th overall Elias Pettersson, who was eventually traded to Anaheim for Kailer Yamamoto, Tyler Parsons and two 1st round picks which turned out to be Barrett Hayton and Serron Noel. Yamamoto was eventually flipped to Philly with Kasper Bjorkqvist for Nic Hague and Michael McLeod. While the verdict is still out on this trade the clear early winner for this is not Vegas. The development of Hayton and Hague will greatly influence how this trade is finally viewed a few more years down the road.

    The clubs first ever game was played in Dallas which resulted in the clubs first ever win 6-2. Many other firsts were accomplished that night goal (Philip Danault) which was on the PP, assists (Tyler Pitlick, Rick Nash) penalty (Matt Moulson) fighting against Fedor Tyutin. Goaltender Mike Smith was credit with the W. Other players that made history that night for Vegas were Rick Nash, Luca Sbisa, Henrik Sedin, and Melker Karlsson for things like first shot on goal, first face off win, blocked shot, hit, even strength goal and game winning goal.

    Some of the career leaders for Vegas include Dylan DeMelo games played 228. Goals tied Cedirc Paquette and Paul Stastny 45, Assists Paul Stastny 78 and points Paul Stastny 123. Cedric Paquette also is the career leader in PIM 151 and hits 395. Between the pipes Mike Smith as the most wins 36 and games played 67. Currently starter Jack Campbell has the most shutouts 3 and leads in GAA and SV% 2.56 and .923.

    Tonight will be another night of firsts for the club only this time they will happen on home ice in front of 17,500 fans at the T-Mobile arena.
