Vegas President George McPhee and general manager Kelly McCrimmon believe Alex Pietrangelo is the missing link in the Golden Knights’ quest for a Stanley Cup just four seasons after entering the league. Pietrangelo spent 12 seasons with St. Louis after being drafted fourth overall in 2008 and was the Blues’ captain when they won the Stanley Cup in 2019. He came to the Golden Knights as a free agent in October and he’s already established a leadership role as Vegas prepares to open its season Thursday hosting Anaheim.
