  • Merrill (undisclosed) signed a two-year contract extension worth an average of $1.375 million per year on Tuesday, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Despite seeing action in just 14 games this season between injuries and healthy scratches, Merrill has apparently satisfied the Golden Knights to the point that they want to have him on their defense for at least the next two seasons without completely breaking the bank. The Oklahoma native hasn't done much in the way of offense when active, but his plus-5 rating and 18 blocked shots speaks to his defensive efficiency.

  • Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Lands on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Golden Knights placed Merrill (undisclosed) on injured reserve Friday. The specific nature of Merrill's ailment is unclear, but he'll miss Vegas' next two games at a minimum now that he's been placed on the injured list. Fantasy owners shouldn't need to concern themselves with the 25-year-old blueliner's availability, as he's only tallied one goal and two points in 14 games this campaign.

  • Merrill scored his first goal of the season in a 2-1 win over Pittsburgh on Thursday. Merrill's tally 8:17 into the third period handed the Golden Knights -- and former Penguins netminder Marc-Andre Fleury -- the victory over the visitors. The blueliner rarely plays, as he's regularly been relegated to the press box as a healthy scratch this season, and his career high is 14 points in 66 games back in 2014-15. Translation: Go ahead and avoid him when it comes to your virtual squad.

  • Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Sits out Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Merrill was a healthy scratch in a 3-2 overtime victory Sunday over Arizona. The 25-year-old has certainly struggled to find consistent playing time on Vegas' crowded blue, appearing in just five games this season. Merrill had a good collegiate career, notching 47 points in 82 games for University of Michigan, but he likely won't see regular minutes with the big club unless injuries hit.

  • Merrill has been a healthy scratch the last three games, and hasn't played since Oct. 17. After skating in 51 games for New Jersey last season, Merrill has only been used sparingly by Vegas after being selected in the expansion draft.
