Robert MacDonald - Feb 20, 2022

Not long ago, Mason Marchment appeared destined for a short professional hockey career. He started playing junior hockey at 19, older than most and only offering him two seasons at that level of play. He never reached the point-per-game plateau at that level, and unsurprisingly was never drafted by an NHL club. Fast-forward just over […]

NHL Rumours
Matthew Mountjoy - Feb 1, 2022

The Vegas Golden Knights are in a tough spot now that goaltender Robin Lehner underwent hip surgery, and is expected to miss the entire 2022-2023 season.
