LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Break the ice with Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Dylan Coghland! He joins KTNV sports reporter Tina Nguyen to discuss


Breaking the Ice with VGK's Dylan Coghlan

Tina Nguyen: A new season is on the horizon! A new chapter for you guys. How are you feeling heading into the season?

Dylan Coghlan: Good, it's been a long off-season. I know it sounds weird because it was a shortened season last year, but it just didn't really feel like a normal off-season. It kind of felt a little longer, which is a little different, but now I'm ready to get things going.

Nguyen: Things didn't end the way you guys wanted last year. How much motivation is that giving you guys going into this year?

Coghlan: The room was really quiet after that loss, and was pretty quiet for a while. You know, everyone thought we had a legitimate chance last year to make the finals. It wasn’t our year. This year, I think we're stronger than ever and we're ready to make a legitimate run to the finals. I think this year could be our year.

Nguyen: Take me back to that Minnesota game for you. Your first career NHL goal and a hat trick. What do you remember from that game?

Coghlan: I had played almost 20 games since that, or until that point, so I was kind of waiting for the feeling of relief more than anything. Just as the game was going on I was playing pretty well, I was in the right place at the right time. I kind of blacked out a moment after the third one and didn't really calm down after that. I didn't get much sleep.

Nguyen: Alright Dylan, we have a new segment called "Breaking the Ice." What is your favorite social media app?

Coghlan: I'm on Twitter a lot, just like reading sports like baseball, football and stuff. So probably Twitter.

Nguyen: Worst habit?

Coghlan: I do my laundry and I'll just like leave my dry stuff in the dryer for a while.

Nguyen: What’s a while?

Coghlan: Probably a couple of days.
