Knights Open Offseason Looking To Maintain Golden While Improving Silver

The Golden Knights won the Stanley Cup. The Silver Knights missed the playoffs.
Despite recognizing the impact several AHLers had on the NHL team’s incredible season, last year did not sit well with Silver Knights’ GM Tim Speltz.

Quite frankly, I’m very disappointed we didn’t have a little more success. I think anytime you have call-ups that’s a reason you may be a little more exposed but we sure thought we could keep a little more traction and have an opportunity for the team and players that were here to step and and that didn’t happen enough this year. I think that sometimes we didn’t have enough veteran players or good players and that’s something we’ll hopefully address going forward. -Speltz

On opening day of free agency, the Knights, gold and silver, found a pair of Mason’s, both of which should have a significant impact on the win/loss record in Henderson.

First, the lesser known of the two Mason’s, Mason Morelli.

Like every Golden Knight expected to take the ice next season, Morelli is a champion. As a member of the Hershey Bears, Morelli lifted the Calder Cup and was instrumental in the team’s run.

Morelli scored five goals and added eight assists in 20 playoff games, played in all situations, and often played up on the Bears’ first line.
