Las Vegas–This morning Vegas Golden Knights General Manager George McPhee made it official by announcing their itinerary for the clubs first ever development camp that is due to begin later this month after both the NHL Expansion and Entry Drafts.

“Our inaugural Development Camp will give our fans in Las Vegas their first chance to see Golden Knights prospects on the ice,” said Vegas Golden Knights General Manager George McPhee.

McPhee added the importance that development camp brings to the organization as an opportunity to see first hand the new talent that is coming thru within the clubs pipeline.

“These players are the future of our franchise. Player development is such a crucial component of any club, but especially ours as we build our team from the ground up. We look forward to an exciting week on the ice and a productive week off the ice, as we will educate our prospects on our city, our culture and what it means to be a Golden Knight.”

The start of development camp kicks off a few days after the NHL Entry Draft that is taking place in Chicago this hosted by the Blackhawks organization.

For the Golden Knights franchise, this event is open to the public. They will get the first look at prospects like Reid Duke who comes from the WHL’s Brandon Wheat Kings and the Czech Republic forward Tomas Hyka who recently played in the Extraliga League. 

Both players recently signed separate 2-way deals with the club.
