    2h ago

    Janmark is expected to make his Golden Knights debut Wednesday against the Kings, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    Janmark, who was recently acquired by Vegas in a trade with the Blackhawks, will likely slot into a bottom-six role for Wednesday's contest, but he could see some power-play time as well.

    Head coach Dave Tippett said Nugent-Hopkins will be evaluated again with hopes he can join the team at practice Thursday. The 28-year-old is on the wrong track ahead of Friday's game versus the Canucks, but a return to practice Thursday would certainly be a step in the right direction.
