Vegas Golden Knights Erik Brannstrom Uses Vision and Speed to His Advantage
LAS VEGAS — Erik Brannstrom of the Vegas Golden Knights is 5-foot-10, likes to join the rush and shoot the puck.
So why is the 17-year-old a defenseman and not a center?
“I like to play, and you play more as a ‘D’ than a forward,” Brannstrom said at Golden Knights development camp last month. “I like to play a lot and have the puck and take responsibility out there, so I think it fits me.”
