Three Vegas Golden Knights prospects are representing their respective nations at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship. As the tournament carries on, keep your eye on the Golden Knights draft picks skating for the United States and Russia.

Pavel Dorofeyev, Russia
Dorofeyev is playing for the Under-20 team for the first time. The 2019 third round pick (79th overall) has one goal in three games for the Russians. In 36 games for Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL, Dorofeyev has seven points (4G, 3A).

Ivan Morozov, Russia
The 2018 second round pick (61st overall) has appeared in three games for Team Russia but is yet to record a point. Morozov has six points (1G, 5A) in 10 games for SKA-Neva St. Petersburg of the VHL.

Isaiah Saville, United States
The University of Nebraska-Omaha goaltender made the World Junior Championship team as a college freshman. Though he hasn't seen action in the tournament yet, Saville has manned the Omaha net with a 5-5-2 record in 13 starts in the NCAA. He was selected in the fifth round (135th overall) in the 2019 NHL draft.
