Golden Knights' Jack Eichel: Traveling with team
Eichel (knee) joined the Golden Knights for their five-game road trip but may not play during the trip, Luke Fox of Sportsnet reports Monday.
Eichel is still skating on his own and has yet to be cleared to practice with the team, so he shouldn't be expected to play in the short term. Still, the 27-year-old center making the trip is certainly a good sign that he will be back sooner rather than later. Until then, William Karlsson is poised to feature as the first-line center, while Chandler Stephenson will also handle significant minutes.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Adin Hill: Starting in Toronto
Hill will defend the road net Tuesday versus the Maple Leafs, per Mark Masters of TSN.
Hill has gone winless in his past four starts, allowing 14 goals on 115 shots en route to a record of 0-3-0. He logged just 14:20 of ice time, permitting three goals on 20 shots, in Thursday's 7-3 loss to Toronto before being replaced by Logan Thompson in the first period. The 27-year-old Hill has a 14-5-2 record this season with two shutouts, a 2.27 GAA and a .927 save percentage. Toronto ranks first in the league with 3.68 goals per contest this campaign....

Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Contributes two more assists
Theodore logged two assists in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Senators.
Theodore is giving the Golden Knights a boost from the blue line with five helpers over three games since he returned from an upper-body injury. The defenseman has earned two of those assists on the power play. He's up to 23 points, 57 shots on net, 33 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating over 23 contests overall.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Plucks pair of apples
Karlsson notched two assists, four shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Senators.
Karlsson has three goals and two assists during his four-game point streak. The 31-year-old center reached the 20-assist mark Saturday, a level he's achieved in each of the last seven seasons. He's at 39 points, 117 shots on net, 31 blocked shots and a plus-12 rating through 46 appearances. Karlsson was on the top line amid a lineup shuffle Saturday, and he'll likely continue to put up solid offense if he stays there.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Jonathan Marchessault: Goal, assist in shootout loss
Marchessault scored a goal, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Senators.

Golden Knights' Logan Thompson: Light workload harder to manage
Thompson made 30 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to Ottawa on Saturday.
Thompson has a 1-2-2 record (one shutout; 17 goals against) in his last five games dating back to Jan. 22. Overall, he's 17-11-5 in 31 starts with a 2.74 GAA and a .907 save percentage. Looking back to January, the goaltender was able to get into a groove, winning five of six games over a stretch where Vegas leaned on him heavily. As the Knights move toward the postseason, we hope Thompson can get his head in the game while managing a lighter workload. Keep an eye on matchups right now. The only team he's beaten recently is San Jose.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Chandler Stephenson: Nets two goals in defeat
Stephenson scored twice Saturday in a 4-3 shootout loss to Ottawa.
Stephenson has picked up two goals and two assists during a modest four-game point streak. Still, he has taken a step back in 2023-24 following two straight 60-plus point seasons. Stephenson has 34 points through 54 games this campaign. Vegas needs more efforts like Saturday's contest from Stephenson due to the absences of Mark Stone (upper body) and Jack Eichel (knee). Stephenson should also be motivated for a second-half surge because he is eligible for unrestricted free agency in the summer.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Logan Thompson: Between the pipes Saturday
Thompson will get the road start in Ottawa on Saturday, Danny Webster of the Las Vegas Sun reports.
Thompson was perfect in his last start, turning aside 29 shots in a 4-0 win over San Jose on Monday. He made a relief appearance against the Maple Leafs on Thursday, giving up four goals on only 22 shots, after Adin Hill was pulled. Overall, Thompson is 17-11-4 this campaign with a 2.74 GAA and a .907 save percentage over 33 appearances. Ottawa has 3.35 goals per game this season, which ranks ninth in the NHL.... See More ...

Golden Knights' Brett Howden: On injured reserve
Howden (upper body) was put on injured reserve Friday, according to Danny Webster of the Las Vegas Sun.
This move can be retroactive to Tuesday, which is when Howden last played. That would make him eligible to return for Thursday's game against Boston. Howden has five goals, 13 points, 62 hits and 38 blocks in 54 contests this season. Sheldon Rempal will likely play regularly during Howden's absence.... See More ... See Less

Golden Knights' Brendan Brisson: Picks up assist
Brisson logged an assist and two hits in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Brisson has an assist in each of his last three appearances, though he also spent a stint at AHL Henderson before he was recalled Thursday.

He's up to 32 points, 74 shots on net and a minus-9 rating through 53 outings overall while filling a variety of roles for the Golden Knights.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Ivan Barbashev: Hands out assist in loss
Barbashev notched an assist and four hits in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Barbashev has four helpers over seven games since he last scored a goal. In Thursday's blowout loss, he was shuffled off of the top line later in the contest, but it's unclear if the new line combinations will stick when the Golden Knights begin their road trip Saturday in Ottawa. The 28-year-old winger has 34 points, 84 shots on net, 117 hits, 35 PIM and a plus-15 rating through 57 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Dishes pair of assists in loss
Theodore notched two assists, three shots on goal and five blocked shots in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Theodore hasn't missed a beat after a three-month absence, picking up three assists over two games since he returned from an upper-body injury. The defenseman is up to 21 points, 56 shots on net, 32 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 22 outings. He'll continue to log time on the first power-play unit as well as his regular usage on the second pairing at even strength.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Michael Amadio: Nets goal Thursday
Amadio scored a goal on five shots and added two hits in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Amadio has four goals over his last five games, giving him 10 tallies on the season. It's a strong scoring run for the 27-year-old, who continues to see middle-six minutes but should also feature more regularly on the power play while Mark Stone (upper body) is out. Amadio has 21 points, 76 shots on net, 31 hits and a plus-5 rating across 50 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
