The Golden Knights Watch Podcast is thrilled release their most comprehensive prospect show so far! This week, Jack Manning and AJ Alexander are joined by three outstanding guests that each bring unique insight to the prospects in the Golden Knights development pool.
First, we are joined by Will Scouch of (link: http://Scouching.ca) Scouching.ca who offers his analytic-based evaluation of the top prospects in the Golden Knights system. Will recently released his full analysis of the Golden Knights 2019 draft class on Scouching’s YouTube channel and was kind enough to dive even deeper to discuss some of the Knights up-and-coming prospects from the later rounds. As a special bonus, Scouch relies on his educational background in sports science to give a more informed opinion as to Peyton Kreb’s ability to recover from his achilles tendon injury.
Next, Jack had a one-on-one interview with Cat Silverman, who is a contributor for The Athletic Arizona, EP Rinkside, (link: http://NHL.com) NHL.com and InGoal Magazine. Silverman is both a goaltender and a journalist, and has coached with the Arizona Coyotes Department of Hockey Development and USA Hockey. Cat generously offered her expert perspective on the Golden Knights’ goalie pipeline, including her analysis of the development of the Knights controversial backup, Malcolm Subban. Silverman also broke down some of the Arizona Coyotes’ off-season moves and offered her projections for their upcoming season.
Finally, we are joined by veteran sports journalist, Mark Divver, who has been covering professional and collegiate sports in New England for more than 30 years. Divver had a front-row seat to Jack Dugan’s (VGK 2017 5th round pick) amazing freshman campaign with the Providence College Friars. Divver shares some of his exclusive knowledge about the Golden Knights attempts to get Dugan under contract and what Dugan will need to do to compete for a job in the NHL.
