The team at Adam S. Kutner & Associates was able to give away two tickets and a Zamboni ride to last night’s preseason home game. Take a look through our Facebook post for more pictures of our winner. Continue reading for a full-game recap!
The Vegas Golden Knights made another statement this week by trading for Canadiens star forward, Max Pacioretty. Vegas continues its summer of adding talented forwards with leadership ability. Vegas GM George McPhee traded and signed for another elite misfit player out to prove something. The former captain is primed to have a great statistical season after leaving his stress behind in Montreal.
We’ve added a couple of players in Stastny and Pacioretty that are very good two-way players, very good character people. So I hope that we are a better team than we were last year. Time will tell. – Vegas GM George McPhee
The big story this week is the surprise 20-game suspension of Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt. One player that’ll need to step up in Schmidt’s absence is linemate Brayden McNabb.
“We knew we were contenders. We knew we could possibly go far in the playoffs and even win. We believe in that room and it’s contagious.” -Brayden McNabb
Not many players are as steady and even-keeled as Reilly Smith. The Golden Knights top line forward put together arguably his finest NHL season in 2017-18. Smith and fellow linemate, Jonathan Marchessault, played a major role in William Karlsson’s Lady Byng award-winning campaign. It’s hard to imagine Vegas’ success without Smith’s leadership, or his 0.90 points per game average.
“We want character people… good leadership, great character and good work ethic.”– Gallant on Reilly Smith’s team influence
The 2017-18 NHL regular season happened to be career years for several Vegas players. Obviously, William Karlsson stole that category and flipped it through his legs. For other players, statistics didn’t show their true success. For the Golden Knights team, that player is Nate Schmidt.
“You go do what you can on your shift, and you rely on the next guy to go do his job on his shift, and hopefully that wear and tear will eventually push the opponent into making a play they don’t want to make.” – Nate Schmidt
By this point, all of the Golden Knights Nation know about Deryk Engelland’s Las Vegas roots. His wife is a Southern Nevada native and from 2003-2005, Engelland was a gritty, physical defenseman for the Las Vegas Wranglers. But most importantly, Engelland’s simple, yet emotional statement on October 10th united himself and his teammates with the city of Las Vegas.
“Like all of you, I’m proud to call Las Vegas home… I met my wife here. Our kids were born here. I know how special this city is. To all the brave first responders that have worked tirelessly and courageously through this whole tragedy, we thank you. To the families and friends of the victims, we’ll do everything we can to help you and our city heal. We are Vegas Strong.” – Deryk Engelland on October 10, 2017
On Saturday, August 4th, the Latin Chamber of Commerce hosted the La Oportunidad Expo “Back to School” Fair at the Boulevard Mall in Las Vegas. The event helped students welcome in the new school year with fun, culture, and school supplies.
The Adam Kutner Cares team attended the event and distributed school supplies to the many children that attended. Not only did several groups of children and their families attend the event, but many community leaders came to support these students as they go back to school.
Over the weekend, the Vegas Golden Knights announced they had come to terms with William Karlsson, a restricted free agent. The star center penned a one-year contract through the 2018-19 season. “Wild Bill” got a well-deserved raise from $1M to $5.25M per season, setting himself up for an extended deal next summer.
“I’m happy to have my deal and we don’t have to speculate other things. I want to prove that I can do it more than just once. Hopefully I play good and can look at a longer deal in the future.”-William Karlsson, VGK Center
