Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden was demoted to the taxi squad Sunday, according to CapFriendly.

Holden has been in the lineup for the last four games with Vegas but was scratched Sunday against Arizona. He has two points in 17 games this season.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Gathers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden recorded an assist and two PIM in Monday's 6-1 win over the Blues.

Holden set up Tomas Nosek for the opening tally at 6:25 of the first period. The 33-year-old Holden has seemingly passed Dylan Coghlan on the depth chart since Zach Whitecloud (upper body) has been out. Holden's played in the last two games. He has two helpers, 21 shots on net, 24 hits and 19 blocked shots in 15 appearances. His limited role on the third pairing makes the veteran defenseman a non-factor in most fantasy formats.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Jumps up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden was promoted to the active roster Friday, per CapFriendly.

It's unclear if Holden will stay on the active roster for Saturday's game versus the Wild. He has one assist in 13 games this season.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Surfaces on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden cleared waivers and was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Holden has just one assist in 13 appearances for the Golden Knights this season. The 33-year-old has been passed over by Nicolas Hague for playing time on the third pairing.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden was placed on waivers by the Golden Knights on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Holden has been a healthy scratch for nine of Vegas' last 11 games, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 33-year-old blueliner has tallied one assist in 13 contests this season.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Grabs first assist of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden recorded an assist and two hits in Monday's 5-1 win over the Blues.

Holden was playing in his first game since March 8, as he sat out the last seven contests as a healthy scratch. The 33-year-old earned his first point of the season with the primary assist on Mark Stone's tally 1:20 into the third period. Holden has added 19 hits, 17 blocked shots, 18 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 12 appearances. His inconsistent role in the lineup makes Holden a no-go in virtually all fantasy formats.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden was promoted from the taxi squad Friday, CBS Sports reports.

Holden will suit up for the Golden Knights for the first time since Feb. 20. The 33-year-old has been held scoreless through eight games this season and will stay in a bottom-pair role.

February 23, 2021 12:52 AM
Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden was placed on the taxi squad Monday, CBS Sports reports.

After suiting up in eight straight games with Vegas, Holden was a healthy scratch for Monday's tilt against the Avalanche. The 33-year-old blueliner hasn't scored a point this season and will likely be a depth body more often than not.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Elevated from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden was added to the Golden Knights' active roster Wednesday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

In a corresponding move, Brayden McNabb (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve. Holden has spent the first two weeks of the season on the taxi squad, but he should at least be able to draw into a bottom-pairing role for the duration of McNabb's absence. The 33-year-old Holden is a veteran of 496 NHL games, and he has 141 points in his career. He posted 14 points, 129 hits and 74 blocked shots in 61 outings last season with the Golden Knights.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Waived by Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden was waived by the Golden Knights on Monday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

This move may invoke curiosity, as Holden hasn't appeared in a minor-league contest since his days with AHL Springfield in 2012-13. However, the physical defenseman will be a taxi squad candidate -- if not rostered by AHL Henderson -- in the event that he clears waivers. Vegas courting playmaking blueliner Alex Pietrangelo in the offseason has rendered Holden expendable, at least for the time being.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Back in lineup for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden is in the lineup Tuesday for Game 5 against Vancouver.

The veteran rearguard sat out Game 4, presumably as a healthy scratch, in favor of Jon Merrill -- who's scratched for this one. Holden has gone nine straight games without a point dating back to the regular season, averaging a modest 14:07 of ice time during that span, so he probably shouldn't be on too many fantasy radars at this point.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Pair of points in road victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden scored his sixth goal of the season and collected an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Flames.

Holden played 14:05, far less than his average ice time this season. It didn't matter, because the defenseman made the most of his opportunities against Calgary and now has 17 points in 2019-20. Three more points will give him 20 on the year, a mark Holden has failed to reach in each of his past two seasons.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Produces helper Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden picked up an assist, three shots on goal, three hits and three blocked shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Sabres.

Holden has collected a goal and three helpers over his last 10 games. The mostly defensive blueliner is up to 13 points, 123 hits, 99 shots and 72 blocks through 57 contests. His solid non-scoring numbers may give him fantasy value in deeper formats.

February 25, 2020 02:36 PM
Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Lands two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden signed a two-year, $3.4 million extension with Vegas on Monday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

The 6-foot-4 blueliner has five goals and 11 points in 54 games this season. Holden has also racked up 117 hits while averaging 19:16 of ice time.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Churns out assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden posted an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Panthers.

Holden has four points in his last eight games, an unusually productive run for the more defensively oriented blueliner. The 32-year-old is up to 11 points, 92 shots on net, 116 hits and 62 blocked shots through 53 contests this year.

February 17, 2020 09:40 PM
Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Scores in workhorse effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden had a goal on four shots and dished out two hits with a plus-2 rating in Monday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.

Holden led the Golden Knights with 23:58 of playing time, a season high for the 32-year-old. He opened the scoring less than four minutes into the game with his fifth goal of the year, his first since Dec. 19. Those five goals represent Holden's best total since he scored a career-high 11 in 2016-17 with the Rangers.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Assists in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden picked up an assist, four blocked shots, three hits and two shots on goal in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Holden now has helpers in back-to-back outings after a 16-game scoreless run. The 32-year-old has nine points, 81 shots, 102 hits and 58 blocks in 47 appearances this season. Outside of deeper fantasy formats, Holden probably won't contribute enough to help fantasy owners.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Tallies fourth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden potted a goal on two shots and added two hits in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Canucks.

Holden scored just 1:09 after Reilly Smith to tie the game at three in the second period. Holden has scored twice in the last three contests, an unusually productive run for the defenseman. He's at seven points, 62 hits, 40 blocked shots and 45 shots on goal in 29 appearances in 2019-20.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Opens scoring in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden scored a goal and had three shots with a plus-2 rating in a 6-3 win versus the Canucks on Sunday.

Holden struck for his third goal of the season just over two minutes into Sunday's game. He hadn't scored since Oct. 22, a span of 15 games without a goal. The 32-year-old journeyman has six points in 27 games for Vegas this season.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Earns assist in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden produced an assist and three hits in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

Holden had a shot attempt blocked, which fell to Cody Eakin, who chipped the puck in for the Golden Knights' first goal of the game. Holden had been a healthy scratch for the last three games, but he skated 20:58 in this contest. He's up to five points, 45 hits and 33 blocked shots in 22 appearances this season. The assist also snapped a five-game point drought for the 32-year-old defenseman. Holden may return to a more consistent spot in the lineup, but it's not likely to make an impact in fantasy circles.
