William Carrier glanced around the Vegas Golden Knights locker room at all the talent around him: leading scorer Jonathan Marchessault, first-line center Jack Eichel, captain Mark Stone and more.

He marveled at the team’s depth and what it has meant.

“It makes a good team, right?” Carrier said. “It makes you win a lot of games.”
