Which Golden Knights Have the Best Odds To Win Individual Awards In 2021-22?

Last year the Golden Knights got back atop the individual awards podium when Marc-Andre Fleury took home the Vezina Trophy. Before that Vegas had seen wins by William Karlsson (Lady Byng), Deryk Engelland (Messier), Gerard Gallant (Jack Adams), and George McPhee (GM of the Year) all in 2017-18.

With a stacked roster and the expectation of being a Cup contender once again, there’s a good chance a VGK player could win another individual award this year. Recently, William Hill listed all of their awards futures on the mobile sports app and all are available to bet right now. Here are the VGK candidates.

Norris Trophy (Best Defenseman)

Shea Theodore: +2500
Alex Pietrangelo: +2500
Alec Martinez: +6000

As the odds suggest, this truly is a toss-up between Theodore and Pietrangelo. While Shea had the much better regular season and finished 6th in the voting a year ago (and the year before), the postseason put in by Pietrangelo was the closest thing the Golden Knights have ever seen to a Norris-level performance. Martinez was stellar in the playoffs but his chances of being a true Norris finalist are probably long gone.

Vezina Trophy (Best Goaltender)

Robin Lehner: +2000

Lehner clocks in as the 8th favorite to win the award despite taking over the starting job of the team that just the Jennings. He’s double the price of Fleury and much higher than Philipp Grubauer who is set to play for the expansion Kraken. It’s rare to get good value on a Golden Knight player in one of these, but this one actually looks like it’s decent value. $50 pays $1,000 for a goalie that’s been in the top three before.

Hart Trophy (MVP)

Mark Stone: +3000
Max Pacioretty: +5000
Robin Lehner: +7500
Shea Theodore: +15000
Jonathan Marchessault: +15000
Alex Pietrangelo: +15000

As much as I love Lehner on the last one, I hate him in this one. Heck, I hate all of the Golden Knights in this one, mainly because they all play together. It takes 125 points or so in a full season to win the Hart and there’s yet to be a Golden Knight to even reach 90 (and there probably won’t be again). Stone at 30:1 is clearly the best option, but even that seems like it should be closer to 50 or 60. Stone is 16th on the list and the highest Golden Knight.

If you must take one, the best option value has to be Pietrangelo. If he goes off and has a point per game while the Golden Knights repeat as Jennings winners, maybe. That still probably won’t even get him top five though.

Other notables

Nate Schmidt (Norris): +5000
Marc-Andre Fleury (Vezina): +1000
Marc-Andre Fleury (Hart): +6000
David Perron (Hart): +20000
Tomas Tatar (Hart): +100000

I was planning on leaving these out, then I saw Tatar’s name listed among the lot and I thought, I have to include this. Imagine a world in which the newly signed New Jersey Devil puts in a better season than Connor McDavid. Schmidt for Norris seems almost as ridiculous but at least he’s headed to a place where he was a good chance to be the #1 D-man once again. If Fleury repeats as Vezina winner and pays out that 10:1, let alone Hart at 60:1, there’s a chance City National Arena is burned to the ground.


Playing Around With Lineup Combinations


Next Season Jersey Ads Are Unfortunately Coming To Vegas


  1. Tim

    My faith in Stone has waned after his performance against Montreal I don’t think you have to worry about the Hart, Selky or any other recognition I believe teams now have his number. Theadore can’t get the puck out of the zone half the time and when he does it’s a wing and a prayer shot from the blue line. It’s to bad because Theadore can skate , keeps his head up but just makes dumb mistakes. To bad they can’t get a quality center for Reilly Smith and Shea Theadore and I don’t mean Jack Eichel.

  2. Jerry Crowell

    I’ve lost hope in the VGK. No Flower
    is gonna cost us chemistry.

  3. Tim

    I was just on another site and they claim a trade between the Golden Knights and Buffalo for Jack Eichel is close. This is very disheartening news to me and I’m sure most of the fan base. From what I read they’ve agreed on three pieces but still have to make the 4th piece work. Nick Suzuki, Erik Branstom, Nick Hague, Cody Glass, Payton Krebs will all be gone like the Splash Brothers always say prospects are perishable goods.

  4. Will Riley

    I take the under on Lehner being the starting goalie past February. He will create drama. It’s what he does best. Critical mistake keeping the high adipose Swede. Along with firing Gentleman Gerard Gallant. Acquiring Lehner and firing Gallant were both unnecessary. If McIdiot and unmade bed DeBoring ran In N Out the menu would be six pages long. #FireMcIdiot

  5. Vic

    The only individual awards in the ‘better than average chance’ category are Selke and Lady Byng. If they have an award for hitting the post, maybe #67 wins it.

  6. Galdom

    You people making negative comments are absolute douche bags who have been ridiculously spoiled by this phenomenal hockey team. Calling McPhee McIdiot? Please go cheer for another team.

    I live in Toronto where a real horse crap hockey team exists. Critiquing every move that doesn’t work out is just nonsense. If your general manager is right 65% of the time you are in great shape. Nobody has a crystal ball and predict how everything will work out. While it’s unfortunate that for the second straight year Vegas lost to inferior teams in Montreal and Dallas they still had great long playoff runs.

    I love Marc Andre Fleury like everyone else but how quickly everyone forgets that he had a six month span where he couldn’t stop a beach ball and that’s why they brought in Robin Lehner. I love this team and appreciate having management that is obsessed with trying to win.

    • DOC (Go Knights Go)

      Galdom ….. You will find that many of those on this site, are here JUST to breed negative thoughts. I have been on this site a long time and am leaving it in a couple of weeks for another.

      This place is really not much of a hockey site anymore.

      But, I appreciate your comments in regards to what Toronto fans have suffered for so long. Here in Vegas that magical first year simply ruined the thoughts of the “fans” here.

      They have no concept of what goes into keeping a team in the playoff race each year. Anyway thanks for your thoughts!

    • Daryl

      We’ve been critical of several moves management has made and said upfront how bad they were…. and guess what, those moves came back to bite the team in the ass. I didn’t know that being a fan meant you have to agree with everything management does. As for MAF, you mention a stretch where he was injured and his dad died. You take that stretch away and he played great. And just because your management sucks doesn’t mean we can’t talk about ours

    • Eric VGK

      I could not agree with you more. Our VGK fan base has been spoiled. They have no concept of the hockey business as a whole. It’s all about warm fuzzy crap rather than wins. Thank God the players know what’s up and how to be a dominant team. DoBoer is an amazing coach. McPhee is and has been brilliant since he became a NHL executive. I feel for you and that shit show up there in Toronto.
      Lehner will excel as a full time starter. Those first two lines for the VGK will continue to stack up numbers. Getting Tuch back mid season and healthy will also add to this team. I have great expectations for the VGK this season. I’m excited to see what Patrick can do in a much better situation than Philly. That kid has monster talent. Looking for another deep run and hopefully things fall together for the ultimate prize.

      • Daryl

        Just curious but what makes PDB an amazing coach? He’s taken a couple of stacked teams deep into the playoffs and his record declined every year after that. He’s done decent in a very bad Pacific division. I’ll ask the same of the GM.

    • Vegas pete

      Thank you Galdom!! Another person that shares my sentiments. Some of these people on this site are unreal and have no idea what it’s like to be a fan of a bad franchise. There are a few that seem like great posters but to many wanna be GMS who actually believe they can do a better job running this club. LMAO

      • Daryl

        I posted a link to an article awhile back about GMs… It showed how many actually had high level hockey experience and how having a lot of money was more important to become a GM than hockey knowledge. How many big mistakes had this organization made in its short existence?

  7. Blitz

    I give Lehner +500 to not be the starter at the end of the season. If letting in a soft goal in the first period every 2 out of 3 games is a qualification for being a Vezina winner then Lenher has it in the bag. If not getting any wins against quality opponents is a qualification for a Vezina, Lenher is a sure bet.

  8. There is only one trophy that really means anything and it takes a committed team with the correct attitude to pull ot off. While individual ones are wall paper if it’s not “team first” they will never get to hold the coveted prize and skate around the rink. They were beat the last two years by lesser team despite the individual winnings as they lacked the champion winning attitude which the splash brothers can’t buy and have done a number of things discourage its development. Knowledgeable hockey fans know exactly what l am taking about.

  9. Tyler Durden

    I only give a shit if a golden knight wins the Conn Smythe trophy, because that would mean most likely the knights won the Cup. The rest are bullshit, except when negotiating contracts. If you interviewed the players, they would say the same

    BTW, get vaccinated dummies

    • THE hockey GOD

      If you watch and believe cable news or get your news from social media you probably believe the COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to propagate because of the people who have not or will not get vaccinated.


      According to one immunologist, this is not only false, but the inverse it true: the vaccinated population is driving the variants and propagating the continued spread of COVID-19.

      Dr. Byram Bridle, Associate Professor of Viral Immunology at the University of Guelph in Canada, recently told Laura Ingraham this and more.
      Learn more about RevenueStripe…

      He explained that the “spike protein” generated by the vaccine, which triggers the body’s immune response, is attaching itself to many different tissues throughout our bodies, such as the lungs, the spleen, and other tissue, which causes our immune response to attack all of these cells, not just the infected cells.

      Recent autopsies by German physicians have found high levels of spike proteins in organs of those who took rna vaccine and yet still died of covid.

      Dr. Bridle said, “We’re gonna cause cells all throughout our body to express essentially this flag on the surface, this spike protein and then (inaudible) as we start mounting an antibody response, which takes about a week to two weeks, it’ll peak at about three weeks. Yes, that’s gonna try and clear the spike protein from the body, but the problem is, the spike protein is now on our own cells. So It’s going to be killing cells in our body.”

      Bridle also explained that the manner in which we are rolling out and disseminating the vaccines applies what he called “selective pressure” to the virus that actually promotes mutation and the emergence of variants.

      Bridle goes so far as to say that the unvaccinated are building natural immunity naturally, which is known to be stronger than immunity gained from the vaccine. This is in no way a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

      Dr. Bridle responded with, “Absolutely it’s untrue to be calling this a pandemic of the unvaccinated. The reality is, the nature of the vaccines that we are using right now and the way we are rolling them out, are going to be applying the selective pressure to this virus to promote the emergence of new variants. If anything, the unvaccinated are likely acquiring – probably in pretty substantial numbers, naturally acquired immunity. which I would argue from an immunological perspective, is going to be much more protective than the vaccine-induced immunity against novel variants.”

      get vaccinated with rna based vaccine and you are likely contributing to the problem and not the solution.

      • THE hockey GOD

        sorry i forget to snip the ads

      • Tyler Durden

        “Misinformation alert: A video that’s currently circulating social media claims the spike proteins contained in COVID-19 vaccines kill or damage your body’s cells — but medical experts say there’s no evidence to support the statement.”

        “The video interview relies heavily on claims made by Canadian viral immunologist Dr. Byram Bridle, who claimed COVID-19 vaccines produce “toxins” that can travel to the brain. In his often-cited quote, Bridle said, “We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now, we thought the spike protein was a great target antigen.” But countless researchers dispute this.”

        “The biggest strike against the claim is simple: None of the vaccines currently authorized in the U.S. (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) even contain live COVID-19 or its spike proteins. Instead, the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines use messenger RNA (mRNA) to tell the body how to attack spike proteins by creating small amounts afterward. Medical researchers and doctors say these amounts are nearly insignificant and not unlike other existing vaccines.”

        Not even gonna bring up Laura Ingram, she’s such a fucking nutcase, her own family hates her.

    • Daryl

      BTW, vaccinated people can get and cash transmit so what’s the point???

      • Tyler Durden

        If you can’t even be bothered to proofread a one sentence post, nobody should listen to a word you say.

        • Daryl

          Oh my look at this guy!!! Watch out we have the English Professor in here all worried about grammatical errors and wrong words from people using small cell phones for input.

          If you couldn’t understand what I was trying to say then maybe nobody should listen to a thing you post.

          BTW, how many fuck-up does Dementia Joe have on every broadcast? Too many for me to count using both hands and both feet

        • Daryl

          If you are fully vaccinated can you get covid? Can you pass covid onto others? Can you die from covid?

          Maybe you can read that… but probably not

  10. Jake

    A salary cap environment makes it tough to keep expensive, but declining players. Lots of fans don’t like it, but it is what it is.

    I enjoy the management’s desire to win.

    Go Knights!

  11. Games to watch this season. VGK vs. Blackhawks and VGK vs. Rangers. Pay back can be a bitch.

  12. T

    best disappearing act- Mark Stone and Max pacioretty tied for first

  13. DOC (Go Knights Go)

    Thank you Eric & pete!

    Good common sense posts!

  14. Vegas Pete

    I’m not sure about a reward, but I do hope that Danault sent Mark Stone a thank you card for single handedly being responsible for the big pay day he received in the off season.

  15. DOC (Go Knights Go)

    See, just look at THg rambling rant. Nothing to do with hockey. Just more right-wing bullshit that has taken over much of this site.

    The worse part is that the “owner” of this place does NOTNING to keep it AS a hockey forum. NOTHING!!!

    Just continues to allow NON HOCKEY political & even racist rants to take over here. People like this will do all they can to ruin sites with this kind of crap, especially when the one person who can stop it, doesn’t give a shit!
