As mentioned in a previous slide, the Golden Knights boast some tremendous forward talent in Peyton Krebs, Cody Glass, Jack Dugan, Pavel Dorofeyev and Ivan Morozov.
However, Glass, Krebs and Morozov are all centers and Vegas could do with injecting some fresh talent into their farm system when it comes to wingers.
Outside of the top six and Alex Tuch, the Golden Knights lack a real game-changing wing and this year’s Draft is rich in offensive talent.
As a result, General Manager Kelly McCrimmon could look to use his first-round pick on a high-end wing.
Jack Quinn could be a possibility although he may go before the Knights go on the clock with the No. 24 overall pick after recording 89 points (52 goals, 37 assists) in 62 games for the Ottawa 67’s in 2019-20.
Seth Jarvis of the Portland Winterhawks, and a former teammate of Glass, is another name to keep an eye on having amassed a whopping 98 points (42 goals, 56 assists) in the WHL this year.
There will be a boatload of wings with high ceilings available and, while they are not as valuable to a franchise as a center is, you still need talented wingers in order to be successful in the NHL.
And, given some of the stud centers they have in the pipeline, the Golden Knights would be wise to give them some weapons by going out and bolstering the depth chart with a high-end wing at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.
To finish, there isn’t a date for when the NHL 2020 Entry Draft will take place, or how, but reports suggests it could still happen in June and we will be ramping up our draft coverage in the coming weeks.
