The Vegas Golden Knights announced the team's regular season awards winners after their game against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night at T-Mobile Arena.

For the second year in a row, Deryk Engelland received the Vegas Strong Service Award for his outstanding work in the Las Vegas community. Since the team's inception, Engelland has been the leader in community service for the Golden Knights as he uses his time away from the ice to help the city the team calls home.

Ryan Reaves was honored with the Seventh Player Award presented by GEICO as the player who most exceeded expectations during the 2018-19 campaign. He set new career-highs in goals, assists, points, game-winning goals and shots on net. His league-leading 304 hits through 79 games were no surprise as he led the NHL in that category.

Marc-Andre Fleury and Cody Eakin shared the honor of the First Star Award for having the most three stars appearances on home ice this season. From Fleury's shutouts to Eakin's timely scoring, these two Golden Knights were integral parts to Vegas' success on home ice during the 2018-19 season.

Each player received a watch courtesy of T-Bird Jewels to commemorate the honor.
