The Daily: William Karlsson Speech for the Ages in Vegas



Chicago Blackhawks fans likely recall the Corey Crawford short, but memorable speech at the 2013 victory parade. The Vegas Golden Knights have one of its own courtesy of William Karlsson.

Karlsson gave a rousing speech to the fans, lauding them for their loyalty while also pointing out those players who were there with the team, along with the fans, from “day f—ing one.”

Karlsson was also one of those players. Exposed by Columbus, Karlsson took the league by storm with 43 goals in his first season with Vegas. He, too, was one of the original Golden Knights who went to the Stanley Cup Final in year one and then returned this past season to finally win it.

You can watch the whole thing here, but be warned there is the some language in there.

A Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there reading.
