LAS VEGAS — In a matter of months, former NHL player Murray Craven has gone from being the Montana-based golfing buddy of Bill Foley to calling Foley, the owner of the NHL’s newest expansion team, his boss. The 52-year-old Craven — who played 1,071 games for the Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers, Hartford Whalers, Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks, and collected 759 points along the way — was a semi-retired hockey dad and businessman before he re-entered the game with a bang. Now, he oversees the building of a brand-new practice facility for the newly-minted Vegas Golden Knights, as well as getting his first taste of being an NHL scout.
I had sat down with Craven — who was officially named the 31st NHL franchise’s senior vice president in August — recently to talk about how he’s helping prepare the Golden Knights for their inaugural season next fall.
ESPN.com: How did you end up Montana?
Craven: I’m from Medicine Hat [Alberta]. Whitefish, Montana, was our vacation place. It’s a ski resort. And it’s beautiful. Skiing in the winter time. Great golfing and boating in the summer.
ESPN.com: How did you end up meeting Bill Foley?
Craven: Golfing. We belong to the same golf course there.
ESPN.com: Who’s better?
ESPN.com: How many strokes do you have to give him?
Craven: It’s kind of not fair. I have to give him quite a few now. He owns his own golf courses, though. He gets up there with the greens keeper and has the tees moved up to wherever it’s best for him. It’s not a fair fight anymore.

ESPN.com: Do you remember the moment that Foley said, “I’m thinking of putting an NHL team in Las Vegas. What did you think?”
Craven: I remember it distinctly. He pulled up in his boat at my dock. We were playing golf later that day. We chatted about golf and then, as he was pushing off, he said, “Oh, and by the way, I think I’m going to try and put a team in Las Vegas.” And I said, “You are out of your mind. They will never let you do it.” As I walked away, I said to myself, “I think he’s serious about this.”
At that point it was just an idea, even for him. And it gained momentum and slowly picked up speed — now we’re sitting here in Las Vegas.
ESPN.com: At what point did you go from providing advice as a friend and former player to being part of team?
Craven: We never talked about it that much, mostly because there was so much uncertainty about the whole thing. Everyone thinks this was kind of baked in the cake, that we were getting this thing a long, long time ago. It really wasn’t like that. It was…

Johansen, Wilson Each Net a Pair, Preds Finish Off Perfect Home Stand
Wilson, Johansen Score Two Each, Nashville Now 8-1-1 at Home
Thanksgiving week turned out just fine for the Nashville Predators.
Behind two goals from both Colin Wilson and Ryan Johansen, the Preds defeated the Winnipeg Jets by a 5-1 final on Friday evening to complete a perfect 3-0-0 home stand. The victory gives the Preds points in eight-straight games at home and a 10-7-3 record overall as things continue to come together in the right way for the club.
“I think even early in the season we had some games that were good too, and we just couldn’t score – especially at 5-on-5,” defenseman Roman Josi said. “I think today we got a couple bounces and one or two goals; they kind of bounced for us. We played a really good game, really sold it. [Pekka Rinne] was great again, like he has been all month.”
Matt Carle Retires from National Hockey League
Nashville, TN – Matt Carle and the Nashville Predators announced Friday that the defenseman is retiring from the National Hockey League after a successful, 12-season career.
“It has been an honor to be a player in the National Hockey League and play for four great organizations over the past 12 seasons,” Carle said. “At this time, I have decided to retire as a National Hockey League player. I want to thank the San Jose Sharks, Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning and the Nashville Predators for the opportunity to play for each organization. I would also like to thank all the fans that I have met throughout my career for the support that you have given me. Most importantly, I want to thank my family for all the sacrifices they have made on behalf of my career. My Parents, brothers, and wife Clancey allowed me to focus on the pursuit of playing the best sport in the world, in the best League in the world and I will always be grateful.”
Bitetto, Saros Return to Preds Morning Skate, Nashville Looks for Sixth Straight at Home
Defenseman Anthony Bitetto, forward Miikka Salomaki (Injured Reserve) and goaltender Juuse Saros returned to the Nashville Predators morning skate on Friday. The Predators are seeking a sixth consecutive victory at Bridgestone Arena tonight.
For the visitors, however, the road has been unkind. The Jets are losers of four straight away from home and will try to right the ship in part one of the teams’ home-and-home series (tonight at 5 p.m. CT). The Preds and Jets will meet again on Sunday at noon at MTS Centre.
