NANAIMO — Patrick Bajkov hopes a visit to Las Vegas is a first step toward playing in the National Hockey League.
Bajkov, a 19-year-old from Nanaimo, has been invited to the Vegas Golden Knights' development camp from June 27 to July 1.
Bajkov is coming off a productive junior hockey season with the WHL's Everett Silvertips, where the skilled winger piled up 78 points, including 29 goals in 71 regular season games.
The Nanaimo Minor Hockey grad and North Island Silvertip (BCMML) alumni has compiled 188 points in 270 games over four WHL seasons in Everett.
Bajkov is eligible to return to the Silvertips for his final season of junior eligibility.
