Kevin Fiala celebrated his anniversary Thursday night. In a 4-1 away win over the Vegas Golden Knights, the St. Gallen forward played his 500th NHL game (regular season). After Roman José (839), Nino Niederreiter (822), Mark Street (786) and Luca Sbisa (549), he became the fifth Swiss to reach this number.
And Fiala did what he does best for the Metropolis player so far this season: setting up goals. The 27-year-old had an assist in the 3-0 win over Pierre-Luc Dubois.
Fiala is one of the best preppers
With 13 scoring points, 12 of which are assists, Fiala is the Swiss player most diligent in collecting points so far this season. And one of the best coaches in the league in general. In the top assist stats, Fiala is currently ranked seventh.
For the Kings, who narrowly lost their first game with the Golden Knights at home a week and a half ago, it was the fourth straight win.
