The Vegas Golden Knights are the first team in NHL history to reached 100 points during their inaugural season in the league.

Vegas captured their 100th point after a 2-1 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks Thursday.

At this point, the Golden Knights lead the Pacific Division by seven points and are likely to be the first NHL expansion team to win their division. Vegas is currently the second seed in the conference and fourth in the league in total points.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, coach Gerard Gallant said, “It’s a huge number. Definitely satisfied and happy with that. What do we got, eight games left in the season? So let’s keep adding on to the points, but it’s definitely a huge feat for our group so far.” (RELATED: Daily Caller Hero Nate Schmidt Ripped Away From The Washington Capitals)

The top three players in the NHL in +/- are William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith, all of whom are on the Golden Knights.

Vegas is preparing to enter the playoffs for the first time and will likely have home ice advantage for at least the first two rounds if they make it that fair. During the regular season, the team is 26-9-2 at home.

The Golden Knights has already set NHL records for wins, home wins, road wins and points by a team in its inaugural season. There are a multitude of other records that the Vegas Knights could conceivably set during the NHL playoffs. How far can they go?
