  • Lagace stopped 27 of 29 shots in Sunday's win over the Kings. Although Malcolm Subban (lower body) is back to being healthy, the team still decided to roll with Lagace, who has now won consecutive games. Aside from an awful night againt the Oilers, Lagace has been looking much improved of late, winning three of his last four. The 24-year-old will likely be sliding into the backup role with Subban healthy, but his recent play shows he isn't an awful fantasy play whenever he does find himself in the crease. That said, Marc-Andre Fleury and perhaps even Oscar Dansk will be re-entering the fold at some point.

  • Lagace will get the start against Los Angeles on Sunday. Even though Malcolm Subban is finally healthy from his lower-body injury, head coach Gerard Gallant wants to give Subban more practice and will roll with the hot hand of Lagace, who stopped 19 of 21 shots Thursday against Vancouver.

  • Lagace turned away 19 of 21 shots in Thursday's win over the Canucks. It was the third win of Lagace's NHL career, as the 24-year-old has become the Golden Knights' starter due to a variety of injuries. Lagace's .864 save percentage is a disaster, but he bounced back well after getting pulled in his last outing against the Oilers. With Malcolm Subban (lower body) nearing a return, Lagace might be shifted into a backup role very soon. Even when he does get the nod, it's hard to feel confident with Lagace in the cage.

  • Lagace will defend the cage against the Canucks on Thursday, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports. Lagace was pulled in Tuesday's matchup with Edmonton after giving up seven goals on 29 shots -- with some concerns regarding a potential injury -- but he appears to be back to 100 percent and will take his place between the pipes. Pressed into action due to the multitude of goalie injuries in the desert, the 24-year-old has posted a 2-5-1 record alongside a disappointing 4.12 GAA.

  • Lagace will be in the crease for Tuesday's matchup with the Oilers, Jesse Granger of the Las Vegas Sun reports. Because Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) didn't make the road trip, it's likely Lagace will play Thursday in Vancouver as well. This will be the rookie's eighth consecutive start for Vegas, and he's posted a brutal 2-4-1 record, 3.58 GAA and .876 save percentage. With a tough Oilers offense on the agenda, it's best to keep Lagace off of fantasy lineups for now.
