Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Earns contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud inked a two-year, $1.45 million contract extension with the Golden Knights on Sunday.

Whitecloud's contract will run through the 2021-22 season. The 23-year-old saw action in 16 games with the big club this year, earning an assist across 14:19 of average ice time. Whitecloud still doesn't warrant fantasy relevancy yet with low numbers across the board to this point in his career.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Picks up first career assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud collected an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Sabres.

Whitecloud needed 12 career games to finally get on the scoresheet, 11 of which came this year. He's added a plus-4 rating, seven shots and 10 blocked shots. With low numbers across the board, Whitecloud likely won't merit fantasy consideration this year.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights recalled Whitecloud on Tuesday.

Whitecloud was bounced to the minors Monday, but he returned to the club a day later, likely in a move to preserve his eligibility for the remainder of the AHL season. The 23-year-old is still searching for his first NHL point and has averaged 14:08 across nine games this year. He's part of a crowded blue line at the top level, as Whitecloud is the eighth healthy defensemen on the roster.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Back to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud was demoted to AHL Chicago on Monday.

Whitecloud has bounced between the AHL and NHL levels several times over the last month. He's been held scoreless in nine games with Vegas this season as he continues looking for his first NHL point. The 23-year-old blueliner will likely be promoted back to the big club in the near future.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Back with parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud was recalled from AHL Chicago on Friday.

Whitecloud continues to bounce between leagues this season. The 23-year-old will likely serve in a depth role while with the parent club, as they will be carrying eight defenseman for the weekend's back-to-back against the Panthers and the Ducks.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights reassigned Whitecloud to AHL Chicago on Thursday.

Whitecloud was recalled Wednesday as a paper transaction in order for Vegas to get the most cap relief possible while placing Alex Tuch (lower body) on long-term injured reserve, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. He'll return to a top-four role with Chicago, where he's picked up seven points in 35 games this campaign.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud was promoted from AHL Chicago on Wednesday.

Whitecloud has frequently moved between leagues this season, as the Knights work to save as much cap space as possible. The addition of Alec Martinez via trade could see the 22-year-old Whitecloud's shuffle come to a close. In seven NHL appearances this year, the Manitoba native has notched six shots, six blocks and four hits while averaging a mere 14:12 of ice time.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vegas reassigned Whitecloud to AHL Chicago on Tuesday.

Whitecloud appeared in six games during his two-week stay with the big club, going scoreless while averaging 14:17 of ice time per contest over that span. The Golden Knights only have six healthy defensemen on their roster following Whitecloud's demotion, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him back in Vegas ahead of Thursday's matchup with Tampa Bay.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Bounces back to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights recalled Whitecloud from AHL Chicago on Monday.

Whitecloud was sent down following his season debut in Saturday's win over the Predators. The Golden Knights will carry seven defensemen into Tuesday's clash versus the Lightning, so it's unsettled whether the 23-year-old Whitecloud will crack the lineup again.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Returning to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud was sent down to AHL Chicago on Saturday.

Whitecloud skated 13:34 with a hit, a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating in his season debut in place of Deryk Engelland, who was a healthy scratch. It's unclear when Whitecloud's next chance with the big club will come.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Ascends to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud was called up from AHL Chicago on Friday.

Whitecloud has just seven points in 35 games with the Wolves this season. The 23-year-old will likely serve as the seventh defenseman while with the Golden Knights. Vegas continues its road trip Saturday in Nashville.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Sent to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights assigned Whitecloud (upper body) to the AHL on Tuesday, SinBin.vegas reports.

Whitecloud has been working his way back from an upper-body injury he suffered during one of Vegas' final preseason games, which is the only reason he's technically been on the big club's roster this long. The 22-year-old blueliner will spend most, if not all of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Will be placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud (upper body) remains week-to-week and will be designated for non-roster injured reserve, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Once cleared to play, Whitecloud figures to be shipped down to AHL Chicago and could spend the majority of the season in the minors. The defender made his NHL debut last year, in which he registered one block and a plus-3 rating in 16:42 of ice time.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Deemed week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud (undisclosed) is considered week-to-week, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Whitecloud was fully expected to be sent to the AHL prior to Vegas' regular-season opener, but now that he's going to be sidelined long term, he'll likely begin the campaign on the big club's injured reserve list. The 22-year-old blueliner notched six goals and 28 points in 74 minor-league appearances last year.

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Injured in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitecloud is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury suffered in Wednesday's preseason loss to the Avalanche, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

The Golden Knights had some attrition Wednesday with both Whitecloud and Shea Theodore both leaving the game with undisclosed issues. Coach Gerard Gallant didn't offer any further details on Whitecloud's status beyond him being day-to-day. The extent of his injury should be determined before Vegas' next preseason game Friday.
