FINAL: Golden Knights 4, Kings 0

The Golden Knights' win in Rookie Camp was the first victory in team history

by Dan Marrazza @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

As our @GoldenKnights Twitter account joked last night when Tomas Hyka scored our first goal at Rookie Camp.

"Shut us out for our first 14 months…but 15 months that's where we draw the line!"

We guess we can say the same for winning a game.

After a five-goal Kings third period sunk the Golden Knights on Tuesday, Vegas roared back on Wednesday and BLANK to win 4-0.

We know, our first regular-season game isn't until October 6.

But forgive us for mentioning the obvious when we point out this was our first win in team history.

Here are three quick takeaways from the game. We'll have more reaction, highlights and analysis later this evening.

 

1. First Win

The Golden Knights scored early, stayed in control and won 4-0. The game doesn't count a thing toward any kind of standings, but for the first major league sports franchise in Las Vegas' history, this is a significant milestone.

It also makes this game the answer to the ultimate Golden Knights trivia question: When did the team get its first win?

The answer will always be September 13, 2017.

 

2. Break The Glass

Cody Glass, the No. 6 overall pick in last June's NHL Draft, is expected to be a large part of this team's future. The center scored 94 points in junior with the Portland Winterhawks last season, and scored his first goal as a Golden Knight.

He also assisted on both of Vegas' other goals and finished with three points.

3. Fergus-on his game

Dylan Ferguson, a goalie who was drafted by the Dallas Stars in June and acquired in a trade days later, started in goal for the Golden Knights.

Ferguson played the entire game, pitching a shutout.

We won't point out another obvious "first" milestone.

We will add that both Ferguson and goalie Logan Thompson finished unscored upon in El Segundo, with all of the Kings' offense coming against Jiri Patera.
