Owen Krepps

Vegas Golden Knights Beat Writer

United States

I am a young, yet experienced sports media personality freshly graduated from Robert Morris University. I enjoy telling stories in sports through writing, broadcasting, podcasting, and interviewing.

On November 1, 2021, I was hired full-time as the new beat writer for the Vegas Golden Knights through Vegas Hockey Now and the National Hockey Now family.

As I enter this new chapter in my career, I aspire to be a stable and well-trusted sports journalist that people look to as comedic and trustworthy. At 21-years old I want my age to be looked at as a man with a bright future rather than an inexperienced kid.
