Jack Eichel spreads the cheer around every time he steps on the ice for Vegas. That’s been well-documented time and time again. However, he changed the Golden Knights’s trajectory with his presence, gifting them a Stanley Cup under the Christmas tree.
He also gifts the first line and power play with scoring opportunities as pure as snow. He even reads opposing defenses well and knows when they’ve been naughty. That’s when he hits them with the ol’ coal in the back of the net.
You probably guessed that Eichel is St. Nick, AKA Santa Claus. His ability to deliver presents in the clutch has been a gift for Vegas hockey fans. Just look at his 26 points from last season’s Stanley Cup playoffs. Fans in Buffalo might not believe in him. But Sin City certainly does.
