Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Assist and fight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves posted an assist and a fighting major in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sharks.

It was an unusually quiet game in the hits department, as Reaves had just one Friday. He did, however, help out on Max Pacioretty's second-period tally. Reaves also dropped the gloves with Kurtis Gabriel off the opening faceoff of the third period. The 34-year-old Reaves has only two helpers to go with 18 PIM and 77 hits in 20 outings. His fourth-line role and lack of offense in 2020-21 has left him devoid of much fantasy value.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Shows off physicality in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves collected three blocked shots and four hits in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

Reaves is only averaging 9:14 of ice time per game, but he's a ball of energy when unleashed, as evidenced by his committing to 15 hits through the first three contests. The fourth-line winger has a low ceiling in the fantasy realm, though he's handled power-play ice time in past seasons to suggest that he isn't exactly a one-trick pony.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Registers assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves posted an assist and six hits in Thursday's win over the Ducks.

Reaves set up Tomas Nosek for the Golden Knights' second goal of the contest. It was a classic game for Reaves, who co-led the team in hits with defenseman Brayden McNabb. A notoriously tough player, Reaves has reached the 15-point mark in each of the last two years, giving the 33-year-old winger some appeal in deep formats that reward physicality.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Eligible to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves has served his one-game suspension and is eligible to return to the lineup for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Stars.

Reaves will return to his usual spot on the Golden Knights' fourth line for Game 2. The hard-hitting winger has picked up four assists and 14 PIM while averaging 9:27 of ice time in 15 games this postseason.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Handed one-game ban
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves was suspended for Sunday's Game 1 against the Stars for his illegal check to the head on Vancouver's Tyler Motte on Friday.

Reaves has always walked a fine line with his physicality, but he hasn't been suspended since the 2016 season when he sat for three games for boarding Matt Tennyson. Either Nick Cousins or Patrick Brown will likely fill in for Reaves on the fourth line.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Ejected from Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves received a match penalty for his hit to the head of the Canucks' Tyler Motte in Friday's Game 7.

Reaves absolutely clobbered Motte on an open-ice hit late in the second period. He received a match penalty on the play. It wouldn't be shocking to see the rowdy winger have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety before the Golden Knights open the Western Conference finals with the Stars on Sunday.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Makes presence felt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves posted an assist, five hits and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks in Game 1.

Reaves had a helper on William Carrier's second-period tally as the fourth-liners combined for the Golden Knights' game-winning goal. It's Reaves' third helper in four playoff contests -- he's added 17 hits and a plus-1 rating in that span. The Manitoba native likely won't keep up that scoring pace, but the physicality is a near-constant for Reaves, who had 15 points and 316 hits in 71 regular-season games.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Inks extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves signed a two-year, $3.5 million contract extension with Vegas on Monday.

Reaves was set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason but instead has tied himself to Vegas for another two years. The 33-year-old managed eight goals and seven helpers in 71 outings while averaging 10:09 of ice time this season. The veteran winger won't ever be confused for an offensive powerhouse -- he's reached the 20-point mark just once in his 10-year NHL career -- yet he provides grit and experience in a bottom-six role, having dished out over 300 hits in each of his last two campaigns.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Adds insurance marker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves scored a goal and doled out six hits in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Devils.

The 33-year-old winger buried a rebound in the third period for his eighth goal of the year, just one tally shy of his career high from last season. Reaves is up to 14 points, 302 hits and 59 shots in 68 appearances -- his elite physicality and modest offense could help in deeper formats that reward his heavy playing style.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Collects helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves posted an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 6-5 overtime win over the Ducks.

Reaves is on a three-game point streak, with a goal and two helpers in that span. The 33-year-old winger now has 13 points, 274 hits and 54 shots through 64 outings. With Nicolas Roy (undisclosed) and Alex Tuch (lower body) both out, Reaves may see a slightly larger role in Vegas' bottom-six for the near future.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Slings helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves recorded an assist and a game-high eight hits in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Panthers.

Reaves was once again effective both physically and on the scoresheet. The 33-year-old has two points and 15 hits in his last two games. For the season, Reaves is up to 12 points, 272 hits and a minus-4 rating through 63 appearances.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Adds goal and plenty of grit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves scored a goal and dished a game-high seven hits in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

Reaves tallied just 10 seconds into the third period for what would be the game-winning goal. He snapped a seven-game point drought with the marker. For the year, he's at 11 points, 51 shots and 264 hits. The 33-year-old seems poised to exceed 300 hits for the second straight year -- he may able to help fantasy owners in deep formats that reward physicality.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: New level of physicality
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves is on pace for 343 hits this season, which would be a career high if sustained.

Vegas ranks third in the league in team hits thanks to Reaves' fearless ways. As a fourth-line contributor, he doesn't have much time to sprinkle the box score with points, but six goals on 46 shots to complement three helpers qualifies as strong low-end production from Reaves. Unsurprisingly, his role hasn't changed since the Golden Knights fired head coach Gerard Gallant and replaced him with Peter DeBoer on Jan. 15.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Spry in big home win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves (illness) scored a goal to complement five hits in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blues.

It sure didn't look like Reaves was bogged down by the illness that caused him to miss Friday's practice, as he was quite physical on the way to 11:12 of ice time in his traditional fourth-line role. Now with five goals on the season, Reaves is a reasonable, cost-effective flier in most DFS setups.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves (illness) is on the ice for warmups and will be in the lineup against the Blues on Saturday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Reaves will shake off his illness to avoid missing Saturday's clash. The winger hasn't missed a game this season and will keep his perfect year going. The 32-year-old is far from an offensive powerhouse but has managed to register seven points in 44 contests while averaging just 9:28 of ice time.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves (illness) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matinee matchup with St. Louis, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Reaves missed Friday's practice with what coach Gerard Gallant described as a "minor illness," so he can be considered closer to probable than questionable for Saturday's contest. Confirmation on his status against the Blues should surface prior to puck drop.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Deposits fourth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves scored a goal on two shots and dished four hits in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Reaves is up to four goals and seven points in 40 games this season. More notably, the wrecking-ball winger has 167 hits and 30 PIM. Owners in deep formats may have use for his heavy-hitting style, but he doesn't score enough to be valuable in standard fantasy play.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Pots rare goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves scored a goal and posted four hits in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Reaves was one of five goal-scorers and 11 point-earners for the Golden Knights in Tuesday's game. The physical winger has five points and a league-leading 145 hits in 33 contests this season. The 32-year-old probably won't repeat the 20-point campaign he had last year, but he's never afraid to toss his body around the rink.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Impersonates wrecking ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves delivered 12 hits in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Sharks.

That's a new single-game high for Reaves in 2019-20 -- he had previously recorded nine hits on two separate occasions. With 120 hits in 24 games, Reaves is lapping the field in that category. Washington's Tom Wilson is second with 87. Reaves has been particularly rowdy lately, with a whopping 28 hits in his last three games.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Comes up with rare assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves delivered an assist Sunday in a 3-2 loss to the Red Wings.

Last year, Reaves showed enough offensive flair to warrant averaging 44 seconds of power-play ice time, but that role has diminished in his 11th campaign. The fourth-line winger has three points representing his point total through 19 games.
