Eakin (undisclosed) went plus-1 and won only five of 15 faceoffs in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Flames. Eakin was making his season debut after missing the first week-plus of the season. The center had 41 points (22 goals, 19 assists) in 78 games last season, but it's unlikely he repeats the effort, as he likely won't play above the third line in 2019-20.
Eakin (undisclosed) is no longer on injured reserve and will be in the lineup Saturday when Vegas takes on Calgary, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. After Gerard Gallant called Eakin's chances of playing Saturday "good", the Golden Knights forward was removed from injured reserve hours before puck drop and appears ready to fulfill his coach's prediction. The game against Calgary will be Eakin's 2019-20 debut.
Coach Gerard Gallant said there's a good chance Eakin (undisclosed) plays against the Flames on Saturday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Gallant essentially confirmed that Eakin would be in the lineup, but he'll first need to be lifted from injured reserve. Eakin's expected to work on a line with Cody Glass, who will bump to right wing, and he's also slated for power-play responsibilities. Eakin is looking to carry last year's momentum into this year, as he posted career highs in goals (22) and points (41) last season.
Eakin (undisclosed) is nearing a return to the lineup, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. The center relayed Friday, via Jesse Granger of The Athletic, that he'll see how he feels Saturday morning before a determination is made on his status for the evening's matchup with Calgary. Eakin returned to practice on a non-contact basis earlier in the week, marking a step forward in his recovery. While he was unavailable for Thursday's contest, he's labeled day-to-day and the fact that coach Gerard Gallant was willing to offer up the "close" sentiment, combined with Eakin's proclamation, suggests that Saturday and Sunday are likely still in play.
Eakin (undisclosed) is still considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday night's matchup with the Coyotes, NHL.com's Alan Robinson reports. Eakin returned to practice in a no-contact jersey Wednesday, so he's definitely making strides in his recovery, but he's still at least a few days away from getting the green light to rejoin the lineup. Another update on the 27-year-old forward's status should surface prior to Saturday's clash with Calgary.
