Bruce Cassidy Welcomed In Vegas

from Matt Porter of the Boston Globe,

What a welcome. Before Bruce Cassidy works a single game in Vegas, they’re building a statue of him.

Thousands of them, actually.

The Golden Knights will pass out miniature busts of their new head coach to fans attending their Sept. 26 home preseason game against the Kings.

“I thought that was interesting,” Cassidy said this past week over the telephone. “Anyway, what are you gonna do? Hopefully it comes out looking good.”

It has been a whirlwind summer for the former Bruins coach, who was fired after general manager Don Sweeney told him his job was safe, and scooped up six days later by Vegas GM Kelly McCrimmon.

Cassidy has hired a staff, connected with all his new players in person or via phone, and had a long sitdown with Jack Eichel. Cassidy has uncertainty in net and a hungry group that missed the playoffs for the first time in five years.
