LAS VEGAS (AP) — With the city reeling from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland delivered an emotional 58-second speech last October that continues to echo through Las Vegas today.

In that span, the bruising defenseman blocked 446 shots and dished out even more hits. That won't make him look more valuable on the stat sheet but certainly builds up respect among Washington Capitals teammates.
"He plays extremely hard," forward Tom Wilson said. "They don't make 'em like Brooks Orpik anymore."

Reaves scored the winning goal, Marc-Andre Fleury made 31 saves and the Golden Knights beat the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Sunday to wrap up the Western Conference final in five games.
