The Vegas Golden Knights may be headed for the playoffs but a key member of the squad just hit free agency.

Dan Marrazza, who is known for his colorful ideas and one-liners, has announced that he has split with the Golden Knights organization after almost two years behind the keyboards manning their social media pages.

Marrazza gave no hint of future plans on Twitter but he did say this:
