VGK Prospect Roundup: December 2018

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights /

As the Vegas Golden Knights continue through the NHL season, the team's prospects have been keeping busy on their respective teams. Some of the players in Vegas' system are standing out this season and are receiving attention for their solid play.

Ben Jones, Niagara IceDogs
Jones was selected in the 7th round (189th overall) of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft and has continued to prove the Golden Knights right for picking him. Last season with Niagara, he tallied 79 points (30G, 49A) in 68 games and is on pace for another strong campaign this time around. As the captain of the IceDogs this season, Jones has collected 30 points (11G, 19A) through 26 games. He notched 17 points (5G, 12A) in nine games in November including a hat trick against the Hamilton Bulldogs on Nov. 15.

Brooks Macek, Chicago Wolves
Macek signed a one-year deal with the Golden Knights on June 12 to see what the German forward could bring to the organization. He led the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) with 26 goals in 50 games in 2017-18 and has continued that high-scoring pace with the Chicago Wolves in the AHL. Through 21 games this season, Macek has scored an AHL-leading 15 goals and has a total of 22 points.

Nic Hague, Chicago Wolves
After standing out at the Vegas Golden Knights development camp in September, Hague has gained his sea-legs in professional hockey in his first full season with the Wolves. Touted for his offensive skills from the blueline, Hague has posted three goals and seven assists in 21 games and is only four points behind Erik Brannstrom for the team lead in defenseman scoring.

Jack Dugan, Providence College
Dugan is the leading scorer for the Friars only 15 games into his freshman season. He's registered 16 points (6G, 10) and is the team leader in shooting percentage at .188%. Dugan has been essential to Providence's success in the early part of the season as they've put together a 7-4-2 record and hold the No. 10 ranking in the nation.

Jake Bischoff, Chicago Wolves
Bischoff was part of the opening-night roster for the Vegas Golden Knights, but is yet to see NHL action in his career. Since getting sent down to the Wolves, Bischoff has appeared in 16 games and has recorded one goal and six assists. His is a two-way defensive game and, as he's chipped in offensively, he's helped keep the puck out of the Chicago net as well. He has a +1 rating and has only spent six minutes in the penalty box.
