Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Goals in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden scored a goal on three shots, doled out three hits and added a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 1.

Holden's scoring surge continued into the Stanley Cup Semifinals. He's now scored in back-to-back games and he's picked up seven points in 11 playoff contests overall. The defenseman has added 14 shots on net, 36 hits and a plus-5 rating while working in a bottom-four role.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Lights lamp in Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden scored a goal, doled out four hits and blocked three shots in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche in Game 6.

The Avalanche struck just 23 seconds into the game, but Holden provided a quick response at 1:15 of the first period. The defenseman has been unusually strong on offense with a goal and five assists in 10 playoff outings. He's added 11 shots on net, 33 hits and 12 blocked shots. Holden is likely to compete with Nicolas Hague for a third-pairing role going forward.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Garners helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden notched an assist, three hits and three blocked shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 3.

Holden found Max Pacioretty for the go-ahead goal with 4:33 left in the the third period. The 34-year-old Holden has collected five helpers through eight playoff contests. The defenseman has added 26 hits, six blocked shots and a plus-3 rating since he entered the lineup, and his solid play has helped cover for the absence of Brayden McNabb (COVID-19 protocols).

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Manages assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden recorded an assist, four shots on goal and six hits in Friday's 6-2 win over the Wild in Game 7.

Holden was credited with a secondary helper on Mattias Janmark's opening tally at 5:09 of the first period. In his last five games, Holden has racked up four helpers, 18 hits and six shots on net. He's mostly a defensive presence, but the Alberta native hasn't been a liability in the opponent's zone when he's in the lineup.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Slides helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden posted an assist and four hits in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Wild in Game 5.

Holden helped out on Mark Stone's opening tally in the first period. The 34-year-old Holden has impressed in his three appearances so far -- he's racked up three assists and 10 hits in a third-pairing role. While he shouldn't be counted on for much offense, the Golden Knights will want the Alberta native in the lineup for his steadying veteran presence.

Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Delivers two assists Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holden notched two assists, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Wild.

Holden made his first appearance since April 9 in place of Nicolas Hague (healthy scratch). The lineup adjustment from head coach Pete DeBoer worked, as Holden steadied the defense on the third pairing and helped out on tallies by Patrick Brown and Reilly Smith in the second period. The 34-year-old Holden's strong outing could lead to more playing time during the postseason as a no-nonsense veteran presence.

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

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

Holden will likely fill a depth role for the Golden Knights during the playoffs. The veteran defenseman has been passed by Nicolas Hague and Dylan Coghlan on the depth chart. Holden hasn't played since April 9, and he produced only two assists in 17 contests this year.

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.
