Digging Into VGK’s Historical Shootout Stats

Despite being the shortest summer in franchise history, it’s starting to feel like it’s been a long time since hockey. This summer’s sports news has been dominated by another collection of people trying to put an object into a net. From the Women’s World Cup to Messi’s arrival in America to The Creator’s Bournemouth team buying every player they can find it’s been hard to ignore soccer.

Now, some of us like soccer, many don’t (I won’t judge), but everyone can agree though that the most exciting part of any soccer game is the shootout. The American women fell in theirs, Messi succeeded in his, and there was a marathon one between France and Australia a few days ago.

All these shootouts had me missing hockey shootout. So, today I bring you VGK’s stats in shootouts from last year and beyond.

Last year, 10 Golden Knights participated in the nine shootouts Vegas played in. The Golden Knights as a team went 9 for 35, 25.7%, and won five of the nine games that were decided in the skills competition.

Here’s the rundown of how each player did, and how each has done in their VGK career.

The most successful shootout artist for the Golden Knights has been Shea Theodore. He’s a stellar 8 for 19 in his Vegas career and has scored the game-deciding goal five times.

Last year, Reilly Smith, Paul Cotter, Mark Stone, and Theodore each potted a game-winning attempt in shootout with Smith being the only member of the team to do it twice. The Golden Knights have won 20 shootouts in team history. Theodore leads the pack having the deciding goal in five, followed by Alex Tuch’s four, Smith’s three, and Erik Haula, Marchessault, and Stone each having two. Pavel Dorofeyev and Cotter also have one a piece.

Next season, Bruce Cassidy will have plenty of great options when games head to shootout. Despite losing some of the team’s best weapons over the years, he still has an arsenal of Theodore, Marchessault, Eichel, Roy, Cotter, and Dorofeyev to choose from.

On the flip side, VGK goalies have been a mixed bag in the shootout.

2022-23 SeasonVGK CareerCareer
Thompson.778 (14 for 18).800 (28 for 35).800 (28 for 35)
Hill1.00 (4 for 4)1.00 (4 for 4).773 (17 for 22)

LehnerN/A.667 (16 for 24).545 (67 for 123)
LagaceN/A.667 (2 for 3).667 (2 for 3)

Adin Hill was perfect last year but has been just average in his career. Logan Thomspon was average last season but had been stellar in his VGK career.

Once again, the Golden Knights are in pretty good hands if the game remains tied after 3-on-3 next season.

    USA women soccer is not really sports, it is a political rug muncher anti american shit show.
    with purple colored, tats, weirdos trying to act and look like white men.

    would be nice to compare stats to other teams

    soccer is boring, more exciting things to do : watch golf or bowling on TV,
    watch hunter biden snuff coke off rear end of hooker, watch grass grow, watch poker live, watch reruns of leave it to beaver,etc. I think you all get the picture

      Joe Biden spent the weekend at the beach.

      Kamala Harris spent the weekend in Martha’s Vineyard.

      Hawaiians spent the weekend wondering why Biden * is sending another $24 BILLION to Ukraine.

      *Biden’s proxy war with Putin (which many NHL RUSSIAN players refuse to denounce putin, there hockey is politics, once again the left wing haters can’t stand that fact). Biden has no plan to quickly end his proxy war with putin , another DEM started endless war. Dems started or initiated every war in past 50 to 60 years. From JFK escalating vietnam, to clinton’s failing to get osama bin laden which led to afghanistan, to iraq’s invasion of kuwaite via UN stupidity of no fly zones, etc etc etc. Dems are lame. Everyone with a brain knows it.

    The biggest problem with Soccer/Football is the disparity in talent between different leagues. If you’re watching MLS or the Mexican league its like watching AA Baseball.

    Regarding women’s sports, the insistence on equal pay when you don’t bring in 1/10 of the revenue is outrageous! What Women’s sport is profitable? Maybe Tennis? Golf?

    As for this edition of the USA Women’s Soccer squad, they should have gone with younger players. 2 or 3 players in their prime didn’t play and will be 4 years older next time. What a waste!

    peace everyone

    Hard to admit for some, but THG is correct 92.3% of the time and he brings receipts.

    Back to hockey……Just get rid of the shootout, and a tie after the OT is a point. Or as Pistol Pete may say…Let Dorofeyev take all the shootout attempts.

  9. Jailbird

    Go Georgia! You got them all this time.
