In case you've heard the bad news, Jack Eichel had lower-body surgery, leaving him out on a week-by-week basis. With the sea of injuries plaguing the Vegas Golden Knights, reinforcements are desperately needed. Luckily, they have a former first-round pick that can help. His name? Brendan Brisson.
The former Michigan Wolverine comes in on the heels of Vegas losing arguably their most valuable player. Called up on Sunday, Brisson has the chance to showcase what he's made of during his tenure. The Pacific Division isn't getting any easier, either. Edmonton and Seattle are surging, Los Angeles is not far behind, and Vancouver is atop the league. On top of that, Brisson's a depth piece that the Golden Knights desperately need now.
So let's look at the former first-round pick, shall we? How can he set himself apart from Vegas's previous failures? What strengths does he bring to the table? Here's what Golden Knights fans can expect from their newest Clark Kent, who might turn out to be Superman.
