The newest Vegas Golden Knight, Jack Eichel, made his Golden Knights debut last night against the Colorado Avalanche. The long-awaited debut of Eichel has created a ton of anxiety within the fan base, but in a good way.
Eichel has always been considered a top player in the league despite playing for one of the worst organizations in the NHL. Now, you can’t say that he didn’t play with some good players, but for the most part it was Eichel elevating the team.
What Eichel offers in terms of speed, a great shot, terrific playmaking, it’s what makes him such an exciting player. Putting him on a team as talent and as well-rounded as the Knights, it’s going to be a lot of fun moving forward. Especially when Mark Stone returns and we can get a line of Max Pacioretty-Jack Eichel-Mark Stone.
Jack Eichel made his official return to the ice yesterday night against the Avalanche. The Vegas Golden Knights welcomed him to T-Mobile with loud cheers, long applauses, and lots of banging on the glass.
Eichel made the most of his first game as a Golden Knight. There were good and bad takeaways, but at the end of the day, I think it’s safe to say he’s going to fit in just fine.
So, let’s talk about his return to the ice and how he did.
