Kurtis Gabriel didn’t win the King Clancy Trophy — Pekka Rinne did — but this doesn’t take away from Gabriel’s efforts as a social activist and a humanitarian.
You’ve been passionate and committed to ensuring this game is available to everyone since you arrived in San Jose.
Thanks for leading by example @kurtisgabriel – we’re here to support as you continue to make an impact, on and off the ice 💙 pic.twitter.com/WeHrKWNK7l

Jack Eichel to…Seattle? Imagine that. Per our Jimmy Murphy, Ron Francis has “checked in on Eichel”:
Per the NHL: “Theodore (12-33—45 in 61 GP) scored his 12th playoff goal since joining Vegas in 2017-18, which leads NHL defensemen over that span. He also leapfrogged reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner Victor Hedman (11-33—44 in 56 GP) for the most postseason points among all blueliners since 2018.”
The Golden Knights became the 3rd team in the last 10 years with 3 different defensemen scoring goals in a single postseason game. Vegas defensemen outshot Montreal's defensemen 18-0. pic.twitter.com/Hn6KvEXFLb
