9. Vegas Golden Knights

Previous: No. 7

The Golden Knights have cooled off a bit after their great start to the year, but they still sit near the top of the league in points. The question is, now that the league knows who they are and everyone has started to settle in to the grind of the season, can the Knights keep up the energy and drive night after night?

They are successful when they are outskating and outhustling their opponent. If that starts to tail off, they will take a dip in the standings.
