The good news about Max Pacioretty's Golden Knights tenure is he was productive. The former Michigan Wolverine scored 97 goals in four seasons with the Vegas Golden Knights. In fact, he was a bright spot on the power play, scoring 22 power play goals with Vegas.

One problem he had was his last season had a wave of injuries, mainly undisclosed. Pacioretty ended up playing only 39 games in 2021-2022, cutting his tenure short in Vegas.
