The Knights came into the 2021 season as the second-favorite in the West Division, just slightly behind the Avalanche. It was a fair assessment at the time as Vegas, close as it was to being a complete team, did have a couple of question marks, most notably down the middle since the team lost No. 2 center Paul Stastny.
That left the Knights with William Karlsson, Chandler Stephenson, Nicolas Roy and Cody Glass as the four centers and skeptics wondered if Vegas would be able to contend without a true No. 1 pivot. So far, the Knights have answered those critics with quite a few players stepping into big roles.
Stephenson has grabbed the reins as the team’s No. 1 center between Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty, giving Vegas one of the league’s best trios. Nicolas Hague and Zach Whitecloud have been terrific as the team’s third pairing, adding more depth to a defense that currently sits second in goals allowed.
Dansk, a second-round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, is expected to make his first appearance of the season with veteran Marc-Andre Fleury playing Saturday and Robin Lehner still sidelined by an upper-body injury. He has appeared in five NHL games.
