Observations:

March 2017 - With their first transaction in franchise history, the Las Vegas Golden Knights have signed 21 year-old forward Reid Duke. After the Wild elected not to sign the former 2014 sixth round pick, Duke re-entered the 2016 NHL draft, only to go undrafted and become eligible to sign as a free agent with any team. He is currently the Wheat King’s leader in goals and points with 35 goals and 67 points in 54 games. Duke is an all-around forward and played a big role in Brandon’s trip to the Memorial Cup last year. He has displayed his offensive talent this season; however it will remain to be seen whether that talent will translate at the professional level. Although there are still plenty of obstacles to overcome, he should have plenty of opportunity with a franchise that is building from the ground up. Joel Gluss
