The Vegas Golden Knights are back in the NHL Playoffs after a successful 2022-23 season. After missing the postseason for the first time in franchise history last year, the Golden Knights must take on the Winnipeg Jets in their playoff return.

Here's everything you need to know about the Golden Knights' first round series.

What Seed Are the Golden Knights in the 2023 NHL Playoffs?

The Golden Knights finished the 2022-23 NHL regular season with a 51-22-9 record, which earned them the No. 1 spot in the Pacific Division. Teamwork was one of the driving forces behind Vegas' success, proven by six of its players finishing with at least 53 points — including Jack Eichel, who led the charge with 66 points in 67 games.

The Golden Knights last qualified for the playoffs in 2020-21, losing 4-2 to the Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup semifinals.

Who Are the Golden Knights Playing in the 2023 Playoffs?

As the Pacific Division's No. 1 team, the Golden Knights will play the Jets -- who finished as the West's second wild card team -- in the first round of the NHL Playoffs. This will be a typical best-of-seven series that follows the 2-2-1-1-1 format. That means the better seed (Vegas) will host Games 1 and 2, plus Games 5 and 7 if those are necessary. The worse seed (Winnipeg) hosts Games 3 and 4, plus Game 6 if that is necessary.

Looking ahead, if the Golden Knights win this series and advance, they would face either the 2-seed Edmonton Oilers or 3-seed Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference semifinals.
