For Sapovaliv, the time is now

With the world preparing to witness the stars of tomorrow play in the 2024 Memorial Cup, it's a perfect chance for Matyas Sapovaliv to showcase his scoring prowess. He can show why the Vegas Golden Knights have faith in his abilities with an incredible performance.

He's in a familiar setting and will be joined by his compatriots in a battle for prospect supremacy. What better time to capitalize on the opportunity and prove himself to the world than now? The superstar of the Spirit is ready to break out and cement himself as a promising young talent. He wouldn't be the only one involved who would prove something to the hockey world, though.

The joke's always been that the Golden Knights don't truly develop their prospects. Instead, they'e sent somewhere else for the next trendy player, with names such as Nick Suzuki and Zach Dean coming to mind. However, there could more incentive to keep the 20-year-old forward on board, especially with the team's farm system looking bleak.
