Warren Foegele, LW, Edmonton Oilers

Big bodies are heavily appreciated in Bruce Cassidy's system. Whether they can block shots at will or lay out punishing hits, such players can make a difference for a team with lots of size. That's what Warren Foegele would bring to the Vegas Golden Knights. Standing at 6'2" and weighing 198 lbs., the Markham native can lay out anybody.

How so? He's amassed 567 hits during his seven-year career. His ability to use his body in any facet makes him a good talent for any team, including when he has the puck. That's why he's tough to steal the puck from, for he can use his frame to prevent turnovers. However, he does tend to go on cold streaks, as made evident by him not having any points in his last nine games.

This season, Foegele was due $2.75 million from Edmonton, so he should receive a deal within that vicinity. That should bode well for the Golden Knights, who will look to replace William Carrier and Michael Amadio with another big body at a reasonable price. Forward depth at a low cap hit is always appreciated, which is where the Markham native falls.
