  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Dishes two assists in loss

    Cotter registered a pair of assists in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Sabres.

    This was Cotter's first multi-point effort since Dec. 21. The 24-year-old has a career-high 22 points, 85 shots on net, 190 hits and 37 PIM through 60 appearances. He's also earned four power-play points, including one of his assists Saturday. Cotter saw 17:23 of ice time in the blowout loss, and he could join Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson on the top line if Brendan Brisson is removed from that spot at some point.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Sparks comeback push

    Cotter scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Bruins.

    Cotter snapped a six-game point drought with his second-period tally, which got the Golden Knights on the board after they fell behind 3-0. The 24-year-old forward is up to 20 points, 85 shots on net, 188 hits, 37 PIM and a minus-10 rating over 59 appearances this season. While he's had some top-six looks, he's most often played on the third line in recent weeks, providing physicality and energy with limited offense.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Chips in with helper

    Cotter logged an assist, four shots on goal and five hits in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Predators.

    Cotter picked up his first point in three games since he returned from a one-game absence due to an illness. The 24-year-old winger is up to 20 points, 79 shots on net, 166 hits, 33 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 55 outings. He's on track for a career year virtually across the board as he continues to log middle-six minutes and occasional power-play time.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Back at practice

    Cotter (illness) participated in the morning skate, according to Jesse Granger of The Athletic, putting him on track to play Saturday against Carolina.

    Cotter, who sat out Monday's 5-3 loss to Minnesota, has picked up six goals, 19 points, 68 shots and 166 hits in 52 games this season. He is projected to play on the third line versus the Hurricanes.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Unavailable Monday

    Cotter (illness) will not suit up Monday against Minnesota.

    Cotter tallied a point in each of his last four games after an 11-game scoring drought. The 24-year-old should be back in the lineup Saturday against Carolina barring a setback. Sheldon Rempal was promoted from AHL Henderson and is expected to dress in Cotter's absence.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Assists in consecutive contests

    Cotter notched an assist, two shots on goal and five hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Cotter helped out on a Chandler Stephenson tally in the first period. The helper extended Cotter's point streak to four games (one goal, three assists). The 24-year-old has a career-high 19 points with 68 shots on net, 146 hits, 33 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 52 appearances this season. He can provide some fantasy value in deeper formats that value physicality while he's logging top-six minutes.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Garners helper

    Cotter logged an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

    Cotter helped out on a go-ahead goal by Chandler Stephenson in the third period. With a goal and two assists over his last three games, Cotter has fared well with more responsibility in a top-six role. The winger is up to 18 points through 51 outings, matching his production from 55 contests a year ago. Cotter has added 138 hits, 66 shots on net, 33 PIM and a minus-9 rating while moving all around the lineup in 2023-24.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Pots goal in loss

    Cotter scored a goal on four shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    Cotter, a Michigan native, scored in his home state to tie the game at 2-2, but Vegas' offense stalled out after that. The winger went from an 11-game slump to a top-line spot with Pavel Dorofeyev (upper body) out Saturday. Cotter has six tallies, 17 points, 64 shots, 136 hits, 33 PIM and a minus-9 rating through 50 outings. He'll likely move to the bottom six once the Golden Knights' forward group gets healthier.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Snaps drought with helper

    Cotter registered an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

    Cotter set up Sheldon Rempal's tally in the first period. The helper was Cotter's first point in 12 January outings. The 24-year-old has generally been a good depth forward for Vegas this season, and his slump came at a time where the team's injuries prevented him from being scratched. Cotter is at 16 points, 60 shots on net, 136 hits, 33 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 49 appearances. Despite the lengthy slump, he's still on track to eclipse the 20-point mark for the first time in his career.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Stays warm with assist

    Cotter registered an assist and three hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

    Cotter has picked up four points over his last four games. That warm stretch earned him a bump up to the second line when Vegas shuffled its forward combinations to successfully snap a four-game losing streak. Cotter is doing his part as a power forward in a middle-six role this season. He's up to 15 points, 113 hits, 51 shots on net, 31 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 37 outings, production worthy of a bench spot in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Registers helper

    Cotter logged an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks.

    Cotter set up Alec Martinez's second-period tally. With two goals and four assists over his last nine games, Cotter has made good on his third-line role, even when his ice time gets a little sporadic. The 24-year-old forward is up to 14 points, 51 shots on net, 110 hits, 31 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 36 outings overall as he remains on track for a career year across the board.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Two points in loss

    Cotter scored a goal on three shots, added an assist, logged three hits and blocked two shots in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Lightning.

    Cotter had been limited to one helper over his previous five outings. After a mostly quiet November, the 24-year-old has earned seven points across his last 12 contests. Cotter has five goals, 13 points, 47 shots on net, 109 hits, 29 PIM and a minus-2 rating over 34 appearances, playing mainly in a bottom-six role.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Records helper Friday

    Cotter posted an assist, three shots on goal and six hits in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Sabres.

    Cotter set up Jack Eichel for a go-ahead goal in the third period. Over his last nine games, Cotter has contributed a goal and four assists despite playing in a bottom-six role. His offense won't stay at that level long-term, but he offers high-end physicality. The 24-year-old is at 11 points, 103 hits, 42 shots on net, 27 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 31 outings this season, mainly as a third-line option.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Racks up two points

    Cotter scored a goal on two shots, added an assist, levied six hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Stars.

    Cotter earned his second multi-point effort of the year in the blowout win. He has four points over his last six outings while adding 24 hits and a plus-1 rating in that span. The 24-year-old forward is up to four goals, 10 points, 34 shots on net, 87 hits, 27 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 28 contests overall. Cotter continues to be more of a bottom-six player by usage, though he can be an effective depth scorer in that role.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Provides assist in win

    Cotter recorded an assist and a team-high seven hits in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Capitals.

    This was Cotter's second assist over the last three games after he opened November scoreless across 12 appearances. The 24-year-old forward saw 13:41 of ice time Saturday, filling more of a middle-six role than a bottom-six assignment, though his power-play ice time has dried up. He's at eight points, 74 hits, 30 shots on net, 27 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 25 outings, providing more toughness than offense.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Snaps slump with helper

    Cotter logged an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Oilers.

    The helper was Cotter's first point in November. He's bounced around the lineup at times, but his slump has earned him a demotion to the fourth line -- further struggles could see him scratched in favor of Pavel Dorofeyev eventually. Cotter is at seven points, 28 shots on net, 65 hits, 27 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 23 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Opens scoring on power play

    Cotter scored a power-play goal on two shots and added three hits in Monday's 3-2 shootout win over the Canadiens.

    Cotter had been held off the scoresheet over the previous two games before tallying in the first period Monday. The 23-year-old has carved out a role on the second power-play unit over the last five games -- he's earned three of his six points this season with the man advantage. The winger also has 12 shots on net, 37 hits, eight PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 10 outings.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Scores again Tuesday

    Cotter scored a goal and added two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Flyers.

    Cotter tied the game at 2-2 with his third-period marker. The 23-year-old is doing everything he can to stay in a middle-six role, though his 10:19 of ice time Tuesday was the lowest on the team. He's picked up two goals, three assists, seven shots on net, 25 hits, six PIM and a plus-1 rating over seven contests this season. He likely won't be able to maintain that pace all season, but he's a solid short-term option for fantasy managers looking for points and hits.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Adding offense to hit machine

    Cotter had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win over the Blackhawks on Saturday.

    Both points came on the power play. Cotter has three points in his last two games and four points in his last four games (one goal, three assists). The 23-year-old secured a role last season with his hard-nosed play, and this season, he already has 23 hits in six games. But now, Cotter may be adding offense to his repertoire. This situation bears monitoring.
