The Vegas Golden Knights are off to the best start an expansion team has had in the NHL's modern era. They hit the ice in St Paul Thursday night to face the Wild tied with the Los Angeles Kings for the Pacific Division lead.
Wild forward Jason Zucker grew up playing roller hockey in Las Vegas, and is the first Nevada-native ever to play in the National Hockey League.

The Golden Knights have been the feel-good story of the NHL this season.
Making their debut just days after the tragic mass-shooting in Las Vegas, the Golden Knights are off to a 15-7-1 start.
In other Wild news Thursday morning, the team re-signed Nate Prosser for a third tour-of-duty in St. Paul. The Elk River-native was waived by the St Louis Blues.
Prosser has played 282 games for the Wild over the last eight seasons.
He played just one game for St. Louis this season before being waived, which paved the way for his return to the Wild.
