Vegas Hockey Now columnist Steve Carp makes a case for the Golden Knights to aggressively pursue Jack Eichel


The Nashville Predators are the 14th team that will require proof of vaccination this season from fans who want to see a game at Bridgestone Arena. Meanwhile, two more coaches in the Columbus Blue Jackets and Colorado Avalanche organizations are also out because they won’t be vaccinated.
