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.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Nets go-ahead goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves potted a goal on two shots and added four hits in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.

Reaves scored only 2:54 after Mark Stone in the first period, giving the Golden Knights a lead they'd never relinquish. The heavy-hitting winger had gone seven games without a point prior to Sunday. For the year, Reaves has two goals and 60 hits in 13 appearances.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Grinder gets big goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves scored his first goal of the season and went plus-3 in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Flames.

Reaves capitalized on two Flames defenders running into each other, allowing the big winger to collect the puck and drive it past goalie David Rittich. It's Reaves' first point of the year, to go with 24 hits in five contests. The 32-year-old enjoyed a small breakout with 20 points in 80 appearances last year, but he's never reached double-digits in goals, and that's not likely to change in 2019-20.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Continues to mash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves committed to nine hits in Friday's 5-1 road win over the Sharks.

Reaves came out of nowhere to produce a career-high nine goals and 11 assists in his ninth season, but it will be difficult for him to sustain such lofty production as long as he's averaging less than 10 minutes per game. On the other hand, he's delivered 14 hits through Vegas' first two contests, as physicality remains his bread and butter.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Physical in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves (undisclosed) dished five hits and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

Reaves missed a large portion of training camp, but it didn't slow down the bruising winger in Wednesday's rivalry game. While hardly a threat to produce much offense, the 32-year-old has delivered over 200 hits in each of the last six seasons, and he topped the 300-hit mark in 80 appearances last year to go with a career-high 20 points.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Expected to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves (undisclosed) is expected to suit up for Wednesday's Opening Night matchup with San Jose, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Reaves missed most of Vegas' training camp due to an undisclosed injury, but he's evidently recovered just in time to draw into the lineup for what is quickly becoming one of the NHL's most intense rivalries. The 6-foot-1 bruiser is expected to skate with William Carrier and Tomas Nosek on the Golden Knight's fourth line against the Sharks.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Slated to miss training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Kelly McCrimmon said Thursday that Reaves sustained an undisclosed injury during summer training and will miss training camp, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Schoen also reported Thursday that Reaves is considered day-to-day. While the injury is serious enough to keep Reaves out of training camp, it's unclear how long he'll be sidelined after camp, if at all. In 2018-19, the 32-year-old posted his first 80-game season since the 2016-17 campaign. Reaves also logged career highs in hits (305), goals (nine), assists (11) and shots on goal (95) last season.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Tosses season-high 10 hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves dished out 10 hits and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Sharks in Game 4.

Reaves posted 305 hits in 80 regular-season games, and has added a staggering 25 more checks in four postseason games. He also has 15 PIM in the series. The shots were a bit unusual, as he hadn't put a puck on net in seven games, and has only managed 17 shots in his previous 19 contests.

Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves: Points in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reaves supplied a helper in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

Reaves has a goal and an assist as well as 32 hits in seven games since the calendar flipped to March. Reaves has had a career year on offense with nine goals and 19 points in 71 games, as well as a league-leading 272 hits. The winger will always play a heavy game, but the points have made him relevant in some deeper formats.
