Prior faced a big challenge early in the team's first season, when Fleury missed almost two months with a concussion. Their dream of finally hoisting the Stanley Cup ended Thursday night with a 5-1 loss to Winnipeg - their fourth home loss of the playoffs. Eliminated Minnesota in five, Nashville in seven.

That's not to mention the bounty of draft picks the Golden Knights extracted from the rest of the National Hockey League, including three first round picks in 2017, that should make them a contender for years to come.

The Jets, led by center Mark Scheifele, are 13-0 in their last 13 home games at MTS Centre, although the total has gone over in just six of those contests.
