Mark Stone Scores Hat Trick, Saves Hat

Good choice.

Tuch’s Tattoos

A lot of our VGK boys have some cool ink, and we’ve heard your requests to talk about the tats and give you a better look at them!  First up, beloved former Knight, Alex Tuch.

Alex’s first, and largest, tattoo is across his upper back, done during two sessions over TEN hours by Ink Masters Champion Joey Hamilton in Las Vegas. This piece features his nickname for his great-grandmother, Stephanie Mohacek: “Gigi” and the Slovakian coat of arms, featuring two lions holding, what else?  Hockey sticks.  The quote “The strength of a family lies in its loyalty to each other” rounds out the piece.

Author’s note: It looks as though Joey tried to cover up a grammatical error in ‘its’ by adding shading over the apostrophe, but it is still quite visible in later photos of the piece.

Alex’s other two pieces are on his right arm, also completed in Vegas.  The upper is based on the area surrounding his family’s cottage in upstate New York, including some local points of interest that have special meaning to him.  This piece also features a compass with his last name and the initials L-L-S-C, which represent his siblings and parents.

The piece on his lower arm is of a cheetah, an animal which Alex says he has always loved because of their speed, aggressiveness, and their ability to prowl and hunt.

Jonathan Marchessault Learns New Word

The sun is bright. It often makes your eyes close a little bit, even when wearing eye black. In English, we have a word for this. Excellent teammate Michael Amadio taught Marchy this word.

Join Vadim and I in wishing our favorite Swede a very happy birthday!!

Do not call him Mr. Foley.

It’s a longstanding rule at the Golden Knights to not call the owner of the team by anything other than his first name, Bill. Early on in franchise history so many of the players called him Mr. Foley that he started to fine the players $1,000 every time they did it.

According to a recent interview, he’s still waiting on payment from one former Golden Knight.

The only guy that did it twice, he actually did it three times, was Colin Miller. He still owes me two grand. -Bill Foley to The Hockey News

Bad boy Colin. Pay that man his money.
