The Vegas Golden Knights are about to begin their second season ever looking for a repeat of its success last season.

1

Repeating career years

The big reason the Las Vegas Golden Knights had such a good year is because a lot of castoffs had huge seasons. Players like William Karlsson are going to need to come back and show last season wasn't a fluke.

2

New look second line

The Golden Knights revamped their roster a bit this offseason. That includes adding Paul Stastny and Max Pacioretty. They replace David Perron and James Neal. Two players who had very good seasons a year ago. That second line is going to need to step up and still be productive for Vegas to have continued success.

3

Getting around Schmidt's absence

Nate Schmidt has been suspended for the first quarter of the season thanks to violating the league's drug policy. 20 games can make or break a season. The Golden Knights are going to have to find a way to overcome his absence.
