|(2/27/18) Lagace was recalled from AHL Chicago and will start Tuesday against the Kings, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.|
Since the Golden Knights faced the Kings on Monday night, Lagace will take the second half of back-to-back matchups. Lagace hasn't started since Dec. 9 against the Stars, when he tamed 36 of 39 shots. Still, he has mostly struggled with the big club, posting a 6-6-1 record with a .872 save percentage and a 3.79 GAA. With its eyes on the playoffs, Vegas wants a dependable backup goalie, so getting Lagace into the lineup against the league's 17th-ranked offense (2.8 goals per game) seems like the right time, but fantasy owners should look elsewhere for their backstop.
