The Golden Knights enter 2022-23 in an unfamiliar situation having missed the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. Now, franchise history is only five seasons, but it’s still significant. Vegas has a new coach in Bruce Cassidy. Jack Eichel is healthy and ready for his first full season with the Knights. Logan Thompson is expected to take over in net with Robin Lehner out for the season.
The Kings are coming off a surprising 2021-22 in which they rallied to make the playoffs over the Knights. Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Jonathan Quick and Drew Doughty still remain as the old guard looks to compete for one last Stanley Cup. Kevin Fiala was acquired from the Wild over the offseason to give the Kings a boost on offense.
