Reid Duke seems desperate for some Vegas Golden Knights teammates.

Unfortunately, Duke is the only member of the Golden Knights at the moment, which left him stuck to play pregame soccer by himself at T-Mobile Arena.

Duke is on the concourse at the home of the Golden Knights explaining the rules of pregame soccer before kicking the ball where his teammates would be.

"This game will be a lot more fun with teammates," Duke said.

Duke became the first player in Golden Knights history when he signed an entry-level contract with them on March 6.

Cheer up, Duke. The expansion draft selections will be released on June 21.
