The Golden Knights earned some accolades the morning of the NHL Awards on Wednesday, with forward Ryan Reaves and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury winning NHL Fan Choice Awards.
Reaves beat out three other finalists to win top hidden talent thanks to his high-pitched goal siren impression at practice. He earned 35 percent of the votes in the fan-driven contest, 10 percent more than second place.
