Coach Pete DeBoer labeled Stephenson (undisclosed) a game-time decision for Thursday's clash with the Wild, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Stephenson was initially expected to be re-evaluated after the five-game road trip came to its conclusion, but he has apparently made some progress since Monday and could make it back for one or both of the remaining two contests. Clarification on his status should arrive on game day.
Stephenson wasn't available for Monday's game in Edmonton and will be re-evaluated "when the team returns to Vegas," David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Stephenson was a late scratch Monday, but it appears that he'll be held out of the next two games, as well, as Golden Knights' next home contest is March 17 against Dallas. The 25-year-old forward has eight goals and 22 points in 41 games this season.
Stephenson posted an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Sabres. Stephenson earned the secondary helper on William Karlsson's go-ahead goal in the third period. With Mark Stone (lower body) out, Stephenson bumped up to the second line. The 25-year-old winger has three assists in his last four games and 25 points through 61 appearances overall.
Stephenson generated an assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 6-5 overtime win over the Ducks. Stephenson set up the second of William Karlsson's three goals in the game. The 25-year-old has racked up a goal and five assists in his last nine contests. Stephenson has 24 points, 62 shots and a plus-24 rating in 59 outings this year.
Stephenson registered an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Panthers. The helper snapped a three-game mini slump for the forward. Stephenson has compiled 23 points, 59 shots, 50 hits and a plus-24 rating through 58 contests this year. The 25-year-old is operating as Vegas' third-line center -- with the team's top forward options fully healthy, there's no room for him on the scoring lines.
