Isaiah Saville's Vegas Connections Run Deep

by Kelli Pfiffner @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

When Isaiah Saville visits Vegas, he has more than a few options for where to stay. There are the endless choices near The Fortress on the Strip, Red Rock Hotel within walking distance of City National Arena... or his brother's house. As luck would have it, Saville's brother just moved to the desert a couple months ago from their hometown of Anchorage, Alaska.

The siblings found out they'd be neighbors again at a draft watch party hosted by Isaiah's uncle in Alaska.

"He got in at 2 in the morning here and when we found out he was so excited," said Saville. "He's pumped to hopefully be living in the same state again, finally. He was at a loss of words as well as I was. I'm just really excited."

That's not the only connection the 2019 fifth round draft pick (135th overall) of the Vegas Golden Knights has to the city. In 2017, his parents were in attendance at the first Golden Knights game ever played at T-Mobile Arena.

Development Camp Provides Leadership Role For Dugan

by Garrett Calloway @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

Returning to his third development camp in as many years, Jack Dugan knew he wouldn't be nervous the way he was during the Golden Knights inaugural season development camp.

A fifth round pick by Vegas in the 2017 NHL Draft, Dugan has seen the past two professional camps as an opportunity to do more than just impress on the ice.

"There are definitely some guys that are looking to some of the older guys for some guidance," Dugan said. "That's a nice honor, those guys are looking at you to guide them."

Coming out of the 2017 camp, the forward played with the Chicago Steel of the USHL recording 31 goals and 35 assists in 54 games. His 66 points ranked third in the USHL in scoring.
