Knights Nuggets: Gerard Gallant proving to be a superb hire for Vegas

Start your morning off with a hint of hockey news.

It’s Friday! You know what that means? Yes, the weekend is here, but that also means the Golden Knights play tonight! Let’s get freaky (and also check in on what the team’s been up to).

- Gerard Gallant has the Golden Knights off to an incredible start and, in case you needed any more convincing, he’s probably the perfect man to get this franchise moving in the right direction. [The Athletic]

- Lord Stanley’s Cup paid a visit to Las Vegas’ University Medical Center on Thursday, giving some of the hospital’s trauma center workers a little something to smile about after the most trying week of their lives. [NHL]

- It’s been a little while since our last check-in on the Golden Knights’ top prospects. Luckily, not much has changed. All three of Vegas’ first-round picks are dominating for their junior clubs. [Knights On Ice]
