Golden Knights’ original Misfit, wife expecting second child

Updated June 10, 2024 - 11:32 am

The Golden Knights’ family is growing.

Center William Karlsson is expecting his second child, his wife Emily announced on Instagram on Friday. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Beckham, in May last year during the Knights’ run to a Stanley Cup championship.

Beckham’s birth was part of the “dad bump” the team received during the 2023 playoffs. Karlsson was one of six Knights who became first-time fathers between the time the 2021-22 season ended and the team lifted the Cup. All had significant contributions to the franchise’s first championship.

Karlsson isn’t the only player on the team with a growing family. Center Chandler Stephenson and his wife Tasha welcomed their second child together, a daughter named Nellie, in April. Their son Ford was born in May 2022.

Defenseman Shea Theodore and his wife Mariana announced on Instagram they were expecting their first child together in March.
