The Golden Knights Watch Podcast is back for a guest double-header! This week Jack Manning and AJ Alexander were joined by two outstanding guests, J.D. Burke of EliteProspects.com and Tyler Bischoff, host of Technically Correct on ESPN 100.9 F.M.
Just before he leaves for his first prospect scouting trip of the 2019/20 season, we sat down with J.D. Burke, the Editor in Chief of EliteProspects.com, a contributor to The Athletic, and the new host of Hockey Prospects Radio on SiriusXM NHL Network Radio.
“Krebs going at 17 [to the Golden Knights] was absurd. Just categorically absurd. He is one of the best playmakers in the draft… Krebs has the highest motor in the entire class, and has captain written all over him.”
“Dorofeyev has some of the best puck skills in this draft. His hands are amazing. I think they really hit a home run with that pick.”
-J.D. Burke Editor-in-Chief of EliteProspects.com
Burke gives his expert opinion on all of the picks the Golden Knights 2019 draft picks (Peyton Krebs, Pavel Dorofeyev, Kaeden Korczak, Marcus Kallionkieli, Layton Ahac, Ryder Donovan, and Mason Primeau), and top prospects (Cody Glass, Lucas Elvenes, Jake Leschyshyn, Nic Hague, and Jonas Røndbjerg). Burke also talks about his new role with EliteProspects.com, including his upcoming article about the newest Golden Knight, Nicolas Roy.
Just before heading to the latest match for Las Vegas Lights FC, Tyler Bischoff of Technically Correct on ESPN 100.9 F.M. joined us to give some insight into his time covering local sports in Las Vegas. Bischoff has covered the Golden Knights since inception.

"Based on last year's regular season, [Nate Schmidt] was the most important player on the team... Everything about Schmidt is fun, and it's also one of the best contracts they have."
