Everywhere the Vegas Golden Knights go, it seems like that man is there, waiting for them. Pete DeBoer faces off against the Golden Knights for the fourth time in franchise history.

In fact, the head coach has been involved in all playoff runs for the Golden Knights. He coached for three seasons in Vegas, leading the Golden Knights to two Western Conference Finals appearances before being fired in 2021-22. The Golden Knights are hoping they can get another one over DeBoer this season.
