5 Knights To Sparkle In Silver This Year

The Henderson Silver Knights take center stage this week with the unveiling of their jerseys today, the opening of Lifeguard Arena tomorrow, and an open house at The Orleans on Friday and Saturday.

The current plan is for the AHL season to start on February 5th with the Silver Knights playing in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference (the Wolves were in the Central).

There’s still a lot to be determined as to exactly how the Henderson roster will look when they play their first game at Orleans Arena, but here are five lesser-known Silver Knights to keep an eye on.

Jonas Rondbjerg

Rondbjerg was impressive in Development Camp in 2019 and followed it up by playing well early in training camp before being re-assigned. The Danish forward only played one game in the AHL before breaking his arm and missing the rest of the year. This year, he’ll look to rebound and put up the season that was expected from him last year. He’s a two-way forward who is an excellent forechecker and has enough finishing ability to turn defensive errors into goals. As long as he’s not a different player following the injury, he should push to become the yo-yo player this year at the bottom of the VGK depth-chart.

Ryan Murphy

Returning from a season in Russia, the former 1st round pick (12th overall in 2011) boasts an NHL resume matched by no one on the projected Silver Knights roster. Murphy has played 175 NHL games, just 20 short of his 195 AHL games. He was an alternate captain and played nearly 20 minutes per night for Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk. He’ll have a lot of younger defensemen to hold off for playing time in Henderson, but there’s no way Manny Viveiros will be able to keep Murphy out of his lineup. He was a sneaky good signing by the Golden/Silver Knights, and it’s not out of the question he comes into VGK camp and pushes for a spot on the big club.

2019 Rookie Camp Non-Roster Invitees; Who Are They?

We’re almost out of the woods, hockey is right around the corner. In less than two weeks Golden Knights rookies report to camp with a trio of games to follow in Anaheim the weekend of September 7th. The Golden Knights announced the roster set to participate in those games. It includes 26 players with 18 of them under Golden Knights control.

That means there are eight players who are camp invitees by the Golden Knights. Here’s a look at each one of them.

Justin Ducharme
Forward – Chicoutimi Saguenéens

Ducharme attended Development Camp this summer after not being listed on the original roster to do so. He’s coming off a stellar season in the Q scoring 30 goals in 66 games. His best asset is his skating. He’s quick, has high-end top speed, and excellent acceleration.

Pavel Gogolev
Forward – Guelph Storm

A player that previously had no ties to the Golden Knights will be the most intriguing non-VGK player in rookie camp. The 19-year-old forward has slick hands as has shown an ability to score in bunches in the OHL. He was traded from Peterborough to Guelph last season and went on to help the Storm win the Memorial Cup. He’s been described in scouting reports as “dynamic” and “heavily offensive-minded.”

Taro Jentzsch
Forward – Sherbrooke Phoenix

SinBin.vegas intern Alex Norwood profiled Jentzsch during Development Camp where he played on both squads but didn’t really stand out. The German-born forward is very small but has a knack for making the right play at the right time. He’s certainly one to keep a closer eye on this time around as he really didn’t pop, but the Golden Knights kept him around, so they must see something.

Jermaine Loewen
Forward – Kamloops Blazers

Loewen had a lot of hype heading into Development Camp as a Dallas Stars selection that was not offered a contract. As the first Jamaican to ever be drafted there’s certainly a story to be written about him, but he never saw the ice in Vegas in July due to an injury. He’s a massive forward, standing 6’4″ and weighing in over 220 pounds. Plus, he’s one of the few old enough (he’s 21) to make the leap directly to professional hockey this year. If he succeeds in camp, it wouldn’t come as a shock to see him in a Wolves uniform this season.

Cole Mackay
Forward – Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds

A smaller guy that scores seemingly every time he steps on the ice. MacKay tallied 61 points in 65 games as a 17-year-old in the OHL. He attended Golden Knights Development Camp this summer after going undrafted in the 2019 Draft. It will be interesting to see who he plays with in the rookie games because if he’s put in the right situation, he’ll find ways to score.
