The Golden Knights forward lineup is about as potent as any team in the NHL. They have two bonafide first lines, a third line that includes another top-six quality player, and a fourth line that should continue to get the job done.

No matter how Gerard Gallant opts to run out his 12 forwards, they’re going to be good. After that first 12 though, it gets thin, and quickly.

A lot can change between now and October 2nd, but as it stands, the most likely forwards to be in the lineup against the Sharks are as follows.

Centers

William Karlsson
Paul Stastny
Cody Eakin
Tomas Nosek

Wingers

Reilly Smith
Jonathan Marchessault
Mark Stone
Max Pacioretty
Alex Tuch
Brandon Pirri
William Carrier
Ryan Reaves

That leaves this group as the 2019-20 reserves.
