In 2020, the Vegas Golden Knights signed Alex Pietrangelo to a seven-year, $61.6 million deal. The former St. Louis Blue was the best defenseman on the market, giving the Golden Knights the opportunity to make a splash.

The defenseman has made the Vegas Golden Knights blue line exceptional, turning the unit into one of the NHL's finest. The Canadian star uses every part of himself defensively, whether it's blocking shots (576 in four seasons) or taking the puck away (222 takeaways in four seasons).

He's also been an incredible offensive force, notching 118 assists in four seasons with the Golden Knights. That extends to the power play, where Pietrangelo has 35 power play assists in his Golden Knights career.
