Nosek signed a one-year, $1 million contract Monday to remain with the Golden Knights.
Earlier reports suggested that Nosek was on the verge of procuring a long-term contract extension with Vegas, but with William Karlsson garnering an eight-year extension valued at $5.9 million annually, GM George McPhee went with a more cost-efficient route regarding one of the team's most proficient penalty killers. Nosek recorded eight goals and nine assists through 68 games in a bottom-six role last season, but he'll need to start playing more to warrant a fantasy selection, even in deep formats.
Nosek is closing in on a long-term deal with Vegas, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Contrary to earlier reports, Nosek did not receive a qualifying offer from the club, but it appears the winger won't test the open market anyway. The 26-year-old projects to slot in as the third-line center for the Knights next season, though he could find himself playing top-six minutes from time to time. The Czech should be capable of reaching the 20-point threshold if he can stay healthy and play in 70-plus games.
Nosek was qualified by Vegas on Tuesday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Nosek was a primary fixture in Vegas' bottom six a year ago, appearing in 68 games and collecting 17 points while logging 12:28 of ice time per night, a career-best mark for the 26-year-old. He failed to record a point in seven playoff games in 2018-19.
Nosek's eighth goal of the year came while down a man in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Jets.
William Karlsson (three points) and Reilly Smith (two goals) will likely get the headlines, but Nosek's shorthanded goal in the second period gave the Golden Knights a 3-0 lead. Nosek has a career-high 17 points in 61 games, and has also fired 103 shots on goal this year.
Nosek (lower body) will return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Stars, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Nosek missed Sunday's game against the Flames due to a lower-body injury, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The 26-year-old, who's notched seven goals and 15 points in 57 games this campaign, will return to a bottom-six role against Dallas.
Nosek will sit out Sunday in Calgary due to what coach Gerard Gallant described as a minor lower-body injury, David Schoen of RJ Sports reports.
Since Gallant described the injury as minor, Nosek's unlikely to miss extended time, especially with the Golden Knights off until Friday's clash with Dallas. Brandon Pirri will enter the lineup in Nosek's stead Sunday.
Nosek scored a goal, dished a helper and went plus-3 in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.
Nosek's two-point output helped him match his career-high 15 points from last season in 10 fewer games (just 57 appearances this season). He's shooting more frequently than last season, with 97 shots on goal for the year. Having Alex Tuch and Cody Eakin on his line in recent games has seen him score a goal and add two assists in six games since returning from an illness. However, Nosek has a minus-10 rating as well, and the limited point production makes him mostly a non-factor for fantasy purposes.
Nosek (illness) was among the healthy scratches on the ice at morning skate Thursday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Nosek skipped practice Wednesday due to illness, but it appears that issue is behind him ahead of Thursday's contest. Still, he'll watch the contest from the press box as he awaits his next opportunity to draw in.
Nosek missed Wednesday's practice as he deals with the flu, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Nosek was already in head coach Gerard Gallant's doghouse due to his recent play, having been benched for the third period of Saturday's loss to Columbus. He sat out Tuesday's loss to Arizona, but it's unclear if that was due to the flu or if it was the coach's decision. Regardless, signs point to his participation in Thursday's game against Toronto being doubtful at best.
Nosek was benched for the third period of Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Nosek and Valentin Zykov both rode the pine for the final 20 minutes of the contest, but Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said, "I think we played a real good third period," despite how Cam Atkinson scored two unanswered goals to win the game for the visitors. Otherwise known for his strong two-way play in a bottom-six role, Nosek has gone nine straight games without a point, and that won't help him avoid being a healthy scratch on occasion.
Nosek scored a goal and an assist in a 3-2 victory against the Ducks on Friday.
The 26-year-old isn't known for scoring, but he does have a respectable five goals and 11 points in 39 games this season. He's also averaging more than a hit per game and owns a whopping 67.5 faceoff win percentage. However, he hurts owners with a minus-11 rating. The good news, though, is Nosek is improving in that area -- he has a plus-3 rating in the last 13 games.
Nosek scored the game-winner in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Islanders.
The 26-year-old continues to see limited ice time in a bottom-six role for Vegas, but Nosek has at least been a little more productive lately, scoring two goals and five points in his last 11 games. It would likely take an injury or two above him on the depth chart before he'd get a chance to show whether he's capable of anything more, though.
Nosek (undisclosed) skated for 10:33 in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Flames.
Nosek's biggest knock has been his minus-14 rating through 18 games, but he remarkably stayed at an even plus-minus despite being torched by the Flames. With just two points in 19 outings, Nosek isn't a viable fantasy option.
Nosek (undisclosed) is set to join the lineup for Monday's contest in Calgary, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Nosek will bump Oscar Lindberg back to the press box. On the season, the Czech forward has just two points and a hideous minus-14 rating. This shouldn't have much impact in most fantasy leagues.
Nosek (undisclosed) will not suit up for Sunday's game in Edmonton, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
It's unclear why Nosek is out of the lineup or how long he may be out. However, it may not be bad for the Golden Knights. The 26-year-old has just two points and a minus-14 rating in 18 games.
Nosek (undisclosed) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Oilers, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
It's unclear if this is, in fact, injury-related, as Nosek has two points and a horrid minus-14 rating through 18 games. If Nosek is scratched, expect Oscar Lindberg to enter the fold.
Nosek is bogged down in an 11 game pointless streak.
Not only is Nosek failing to find the back of the net, he is also sporting a minus-10 rating during his point drought. The winger has registered just 14 shots in those 11 outings, which isn't going to help him find the back of the net. If Nosek can't find his scoring touch soon, coach Gerard Gallant could decide to bench him in favor of Oscar Lindberg.
Nosek scored two shorthanded goals in the preseason finale Sunday, helping Vegas to a 5-2 home win over San Jose.
The Golden Knights shined on special teams, as they totaled three shorties and even had a power-play goal complementing Nick Holden's 5-on-5 tally from the first period. Nosek is a quality line defender who tends to come through in the clutch, so keep an eye on him as a sleeper option at the tail end of fantasy drafts.
Nosek produced three assists -- including a power-play helper -- Sunday, en route to Vegas' 7-2 win over the Coyotes to open the preseason.
Nosek was phenomenal in the 2018 postseason, as he compiled four goals and six points to complement a plus-5 rating over 17 games. The Czech skater only averaged 11:34 of ice time in the deep playoff run, too, which makes his numbers all the more impressive. A strong two-way presence, Nosek is a legitimate sleeper heading into the 2018-19 campaign.
Nosek secured a one-year, one-way contract worth $963,000 on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Nosek was a clutch contributor during the Golden Knights' unpredictable playoff run, scoring three goals against the Capitals in the Stanley Cup Finals. The 25-year-old had a more modest stat line during the regular season, with seven goals and 15 points in 67 games. Expect him to remain in the bottom-six for 2018-19.
