Golden Knights player Reid Duke learning a lot in AHL
By Steve Carp
LAS VEGAS (LVRJ) – Imagine having never stepped foot on a college campus. Then one day you’re enrolled in graduate school.
At times, it might feel a bit overwhelming. That’s what Reid Duke’s world feels a little like these days.
The 6-foot, 190-pound, 21-year-old former center for the Brandon Wheat Kings who was signed by the Golden Knights on March 6, is currently with the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League. Duke, who has a Player Tryout contract with Chicago, has yet to take a shift for the Wolves, who began their first round of the playoffs Thursday at Charlotte.
And he may never get in a game of the best-of-five series given the importance of the playoffs. But he understands his situation is a bit unique.
“They’ve got a very close team,” Duke said Wednesday from North Carolina. “They’re trying to make a deep run (in the playoffs) so I understand.
”For me, I’m here to learn as much as I can and get better. I’m skating every day in practice so I use practice as my games to show them what I can do. I’m just thankful to the Wolves for giving me the opportunity.”
