Eichel Reveals Why the Knights won the Cup

The Vegas Golden Knights had a disappointing season in 2021-22 and didn't make it to the Stanley Cup playoffs. However, everything changed when Bruce Cassidy joined the team. His strong leadership transformed the team's atmosphere and helped them win the Stanley Cup.

Jack Eichel shared his thoughts on what led to their turnaround and why they were able to win the cup this year.
"It was incredible. I mean, I think what he did for our group and for me as a player, it was the reason we won, I think he came in and the way that he changed our game, but just push guys and hold everyone accountable and the way that he was able to get us to play, it was great. He was phenomenal. He was great all year." - Jack Eichel on Bruce Cassidy

Eichel played a vital role in the Knights' victory, scoring 26 points in just 22 games. Although he was a top contender for the Conn Smyth award, his teammate Jonathan Marchessault ended up winning it.

Cassidy's Coaching Journey

Having a mediocre coach can really hurt a team's chances of winning the cup, but a great coach can lead a team to the great honors. Cassidy has proven himself to be a coach of the latter category.
After being let go by the Boston Bruins, who won the Presidents Trophy in the 2022-23 season, Cassidy had the last laugh by defeating the team that eliminated the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Cassidy's coaching career began in the 2002-2003 season when he became the head coach of the Washington Capitals. Since then, he has held various coaching positions, including assistant coach for the Blackhawks, head coach for the Bruins, and now head coach for the Golden Knights.
