Vegas Golden Knights rookie defenceman Zach Whitecloud continues to be an emerging force during the 2020 playoffs.
During what was a pivotal second round Game 3 Golden Knights 3-0 victory against the Vancouver Canucks, Whitecloud stepped up by logging 15:19 of ice time where he registered four shots on goal, and scored a goal while finishing the game with a +1 rating. Whitecloud’s goal came in the first period after line mate Max Pacioretty had the puck knocked off his stick. The puck happened to bounce towards Whitecloud who scored a huge insurance marker for at the time a 2-0 lead. This 23- year-old defenceman now has two goals and three points in 11 playoff games. It was a huge win for Vegas as they took a 2-1 semi finals best of seven lead against Vancouver.
