Jonathan Marchessault has picked up 16 points in his last 11 contests.

Marchessault had just two assists in the first round, but he really turned it on in the second and third rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The 27-year-old has been the main offensive catalyst for the Golden Knights and he'll have to keep rolling if they're going to hoist the Stanley Cup.

The Golden Knights reached max capacity during Saturday's practice.

The max capacity was 600 and people started lining up outside the arena at 6:30 AM with the Golden Knights stopping people from entering the rink at 9:00 for the eleven o'clock practice. On top of that, each player received a huge round of applause when they stepped onto the ice. Many people were skeptical of a hockey team in Vegas but the Golden Knights have built a huge following during their cinderella run to the Stanley Cup Final. It's safe to say that the T-Mobile Arena will be rocking on Monday night for Game 1.

Carter Hart was named the CHL goaltender of the year for the 2017-18 season.

In doing so, Hart has become the first goaltender in CHL history to win the award twice after having also won after the 2015-16 season. In 2017-18, the young goaltender led the WHL in goals-against-average (1.60), save percentage (.947) and shutouts (seven). He'll go down as one of the best goaltenders in CHL history. Flyers fans are eagerly awaiting his arrival as they hope he can finally solve the revolving door that is their goaltending. The 19-year-old will likely start his first professional season as the starting netminder for the Lehigh Phantoms of the AHL.

William Carrier (undisclosed) is expected to be ready to return sometime during the Stanley Cup Final according to head coach Gerard Gallant.

Carrier hasn't played since Game 5 of Vegas's second round matchup with the San Jose Sharks. The 23-year-old forward has zero points in nine playoff games so far.

Malcolm Subban (undisclosed) was not present for Saturday morning's practice.

Subban's timeline remains day-to-day as he continues to rehab from the ailment that did not allow him to back up Marc-Andre Fleury for the last three games of the Western Conference Final. Maxime Lagace will continue to serve as the team's backup goaltender.

Vegas forward William Carrier (undisclosed) was on the ice for the start of Saturday's practice but was wearing a red non-contact jersey.

Carrier's last appearance was Game 5 of Vegas' second round matchup with the San Jose Sharks. He appears to have made progress but we still haven't been given a timeline on a potential return date.

Devante Smith-Pelly said he's good to go for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final after taking a Ryan McDonagh shot to the head in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Smith-Pelly added that his neck stiffened up after absorbing the shot and he could have probably returned to the game if the Caps weren't up 3-0. This is good news for the Caps as Smith-Pelly has brought some physical play to the lineup combined with four goals and five points through 19 playoff games. He skated on the fourth line during Saturday's practice alongside Chandler Stephenson and Jay Beagle.

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin spoke about his team's focus heading into Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in Vegas.

"We’re going there to play hockey, not to pool party and play in casino." Ovechkin said. "We’re going there to play hockey and do our thing and then we’re going to have all the summer and whatever we want to do, we can do it." It's taken the Russian captain 13 years, but he has finally made it to a Cup Final after years of heat break. The 32-year-old winger has 12 goals and 22 points through 19 playoff games so far and will face a Vegas goaltender in Marc-Andre Fleury that has given him some problems in the past as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Game 1 is scheduled for Monday night.

Devante Smith-Pelly took part in Washington's practice Saturday morning.

Smith-Pelly left Game 7 against Tampa and did not finish the contest after a shot hit him in the back of the head/neck. However, he participated in line rushes in regular jersey on Saturday, so it looks like he will be available for Monday night.

Brooks Orpik is on the ice for the Capitals' practice Saturday morning.

Orpik, who was boarded by Tampa Bay's Cedric Paquette in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final, appears to be fine to play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night. He managed to return to the game after he was hit.

There were no changes to the Capitals' forward units during line rushes Saturday morning.

In the team's first full practice after defeating the Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final, Tom Wilson skated alongside Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov on the Caps' first unit. Jakub Vrana, Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie comprised the second unit, while Game 7 hero Andre Burakovsky and Brett Connolly flanked Lars Eller on the third line. Chandler Stephenson, Jay Beagle and Devante Smith-Pelly formed the fourth unit.

The Toronto Marlies are heading to the AHL's Calder Cup Final after they swept the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Friday night.

Marlies forward Andreas Johnsson scored a pair of goals in Friday's 3-1 win over the Flyers' farm team. The 23-year-old is having a terrific postseason, as he's accumulated six goals and 15 points in nine postseason games. He also had three points in nine games with the Maple Leafs during the regular season and two points in six games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Marlies will play the winner of the Western Conference Final between the Rockford IceHogs and Texas Stars.
May 26 - 9:24 AM

Tyler Johnson's full no-trade clause will kick in on July 1st.

If the Lightning aren't convinced they want to have him around long term, they will have to consider moving him before that date. The 27-year-old is scheduled to make $5 million per season for the next five years, so that's a significant financial commitment for a team that will have to pay some of its stars in the near future. Johnson had 21 goals and 50 points in 81 games with the Lightning this season. There's a chance he could be on the move at some point this offseason.
May 26 - 9:19 AM

Nikita Kucherov will be eligible to sign a contract extension starting July 1st.

The Lightning forward is entering the final year of his contract, so that's why he can officially sign a deal with the team. The 24-year-old settled for a three-year bridge contract last time, but that certainly won't be the case this time around, as he's put together some impressive numbers. Expect him to get a huge raise from the $4.766,667 per year he's been making over the last couple of seasons. He had 39 goals and 100 points in 80 games for the Lightning in 2017-18. Kucherov will likely become one of the highest paid players in the league whenever he signs his new extension.

Sabres coach Phil Housley admitted that he's been watching Youtube clips of potential number one overall pick Rasmus Dahlin.

The Sabres, who won the draft lottery, are going to take Dahlin first overall, so Housley has been familiarizing himself with the Swedish blue liner. "I know these are highlights and he's a young man and has to mature and really get to the NHL and North American game, but just seeing his poise and his hockey IQ of processing the game at a high speed is really, really something," Housley said. "I've been watching on YouTube and, boy, it's incredible. He's going to be a complete package in today's NHL."
