Bischoff was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Monday. Bischoff will link up with the Wolves for games Tuesday and Wednesday and could still be an option for the Knights for Thursday's matchup with Montreal. The blueliner recorded six shots, four PIM and eight hits while averaging 15:36 of ice time in four appearances. Even if he is recalled from the minors, the Minnesota native could still land in the press box as a healthy scratch.
Bischoff will make his NHL debut Saturday in Pittsburgh, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. The 25-year-old Bischoff was originally a seventh-round selection of the Islanders back in 2012. The University of Minnesota product was a strong offensive contributor at the NCAA level, but he scored only 11 points in 60 games with AHL Chicago last season.
Bischoff was recalled from AHL Chicago on Friday. Vegas suffered a shocking 4-1 defeat at the hands of the Coyotes on Thursday, and it looks like the young club is trying to find the right balance with Nate Schmidt (lower body) out of commission. Bischoff is physical with the potential to produce offense in spurts; his resume includes 68 points (17 goals, 51 assists) over 139 games with the University of Minnesota.
Bischoff was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Monday. The Golden Knights are preparing their final rosters for the 2019-20 campaign, and Bischoff was a late dismissal from training camp, which suggests that he may be close to making his NHL debut. Originally selected by the Islanders in the seventh round (No. 185 overall) of the 2012 draft, Bischoff remains a quality depth option for the young franchise.
Bischoff signed a three-year, $2.15 million contract with Vegas on Tuesday. Bischoff has yet to break into the NHL after two seasons in the minors, but apparently has shown the organization enough to warrant a multi-year deal. The University of Minnesota product won't provide much offensively, which limits his fantasy value, but he could still become a solid, shutdown defender for the Knights.
