There are some players on the Vegas Golden Knights roster you may want on your fantasy team.

With the regular season just around the corner, the Vegas Golden Knights inaugural season is sure to be one fun ride. The regular season also comes with another popular game to the fans, and that’s fantasy hockey. Who would’ve thought Vegas hockey fans would be drafting players from their franchise?

For those not familiar with fantasy hockey, let me explain some of the rules. Fantasy hockey leagues are usually made up of 10-12 teams where players build a team that competes with other players. Scoring is based on statistics generated by professional hockey players or teams.

It’s pretty simple; the most frequent scoring is Head to Head categories, Head to Head points or just points. In most leagues, you must pick two centers, two left wings, two right wings, four defensemen, one utility player and two goaltenders for your starting lineup. You also have a few reserve spots on your team, usually around four or five players.

I won’t bore you with the rest of the rules, but I will write this based on the most common scoring which is Head to Head categories. I’ll give you some Golden Knights players who may breakout and a few players who I think will fall short of expectations.
