The Golden Knights announced that Robin Lehner would miss the entire 2022-23 season this past August, and once they did it created a big question mark in the crease for Vegas. New head coach Bruce Cassidy told FOX5 that it will be Logan Thompson who will get the first look as the number one netminder in training camp.
When Bruce Cassidy was introduced as Golden Knights head coach back in June, Robin Lehner was the number one netminder for the VGK, but since then, Lehner has been placed on season-ending injured reserve due to double hip surgery.
For the Vegas Golden Knights, signing Phil Kessel to a one-year, $1.5 million deal was a way to bolster their depth at forward. For the 16-year NHL veteran, it was a chance to play for another team that can contend.
The atmosphere and pregame production inside T-Mobile Arena prior to a Golden Knights game has become a thing of legend around the NHL. Contributing to that medieval mystique is the national anthem, sung by Carnell Johnson, better known as Golden Pipes. The Las Vegas native has turned a standard segment at a sporting event into one of the most important and iconic moments inside the Fortress.
