History in the making for the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

In their first ever season being a member of the NHL they have miraculous landed a spot in the Stanley Cup Final against the Washington Capitals.

As a new member of the NHL this season, the Golden Knights are an expansion team, meaning they basically had to scrap all of their players off of other teams in order to build their own. The way it works is each team in the NHL can protect a certain amount of players on their team that they do not want to be drafted, and whoever is not protected, could be a possibly for draft bait for the Golden Knights as they continued to build their team. For that reason, it’s tough for any team to pick from players who haven’t played together or may not have experienced the ice like any other NHL star has. Not to mention, any expansion team isn’t immediately getting an all star caliber player in their first season of joining a major league association.

As the week winds down and the Stanley Cup Finals begin on May 28, both the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals have overcome so much and this season can without a doubt can be a season to reminisce about in each team’s history. Just as soon as June 4, there could potentially be a victor and would be a historic season for either team. Playoff hockey is about to go to a completely new competitive level.
