  • Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Role may be substantial early on

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/4/18) Merill could be in line for an increased role to start the 2018-19 season, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

    Merrill's expected uptick in playing time is not based purely on merit, as the Golden Knights are left scrambling to find a replacement for Nate Schmidt, who fashioned a career-high 36 points in 76 games last year but was hit with a 20-game ban for violating the NHL's anti-drug policy Sunday. Brad Hunt is also a candidate for an increased role on Vegas' blue line.

    Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Back in action Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/18) Merrill (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve and is slated to return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Calgary, SinBin.vegas reports.

    The former Michigan Wolverine will be suiting up for the first time since Jan. 4, having missed 20 games while recovering his health. With just a single goal and assist in 14 contests, Merrill doesn't typically offer much from a fantasy standpoint, though partnering with the offensive-minded Colin Miller -- as he's projected to do Wednesday -- could provide a spark to Merrill's attacking play.

    Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Unavailable Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Merrill (undisclosed) was not among the players listed for Saturday's matchup with Montreal, per NHL.com.

    Merrill -- who remains on injured reserve -- is reportedly close to returning to action, but with the reintroduction of Luca Sbisa (hand) to the lineup, there was no reason to rush Merrill back into action. Considering the 25-year-old has served as a healthy scratch periodically, there is no guarantee he will slot back into the lineup even once given the all-clear.

    Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Could return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/18) Merrill (undisclosed) is close to rejoining the lineup and could even return Saturday against the Canadiens, Jesse Granger of the Las Vegas Sun reports.

    Merrill returned to full practice Thursday for the first time since Jan. 4, and coach Gerard Gallant suggested after the session that he was very close to a return. Merrill's return shouldn't draw the attention of many fantasy owners regardless of when it occurs.

    Golden Knights' Jon Merrill: Full-contact participant Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/18) Merrill (undisclosed) practiced in a regular jersey Thursday for the first time since suffering the injury Jan. 4 against the Blues, Steve Carp reports.

    Coach Gerard Gallant relayed after Thursday's practice session that Merrill is very close to rejoining the lineup, though he seems destined to miss Thursday's matchup versus the Oilers. Merrill will likely require another practice or two under his belt, given his extended layoff, but that shouldn't take very long if he avoids a setback. In any event, the team will need to announce his activation off injured reserve before a return is a possibility.
