Kelly McCrimmon sat in a Dallas restaurant Wednesday night and watched his team collect four awards. He soaked in the moment, reflected a bit and then told his scouting staff: let's get back to work.
While Golden Knights GM George McPhee was in Vegas for the NHL Awards Show, assistant GM McCrimmon was in Texas preparing for the NHL Entry Draft.
The Golden Knights collected four awards, including McPhee's GM of the Year nod, at the league's season end celebration.
For McCrimmon, who works hand in hand with McPhee running the club's hockey operations department, it was a happy moment and a nod to the fine work done by the people Vegas has assembled.
