Holden was waived by the Golden Knights on Monday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

This move may invoke curiosity, as Holden hasn't appeared in a minor-league contest since his days with AHL Springfield in 2012-13. However, the physical defenseman will be a taxi squad candidate -- if not rostered by AHL Henderson -- in the event that he clears waivers. Vegas courting playmaking blueliner Alex Pietrangelo in the offseason has rendered Holden expendable, at least for the time being.
