  • Golden Knights' James Neal: Tallies pair of assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/18/17) Neal dished out two helpers in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Sabres.

    After scoring six goals in his first four games as a Golden Knight, Neal finally added a couple assists to his point total. Both assists came on goals scored by his linemate, David Perron, including the game-winning goal in OT. While he may not keep up this level of scoring, the 30-year-old winger is settling in very nicely with his new squad.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Continues red-hot start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/11/17) Neal buried two goals -- one on a power play -- in a 5-2 victory over the Coyotes on Tuesday.

    In the team's inaugural home contest, the Golden Knights wasted no time putting on a show, scoring four goals in the first period, capped off by back-to-back scores by Neal. More importantly, his power-play goal was the first in Vegas history, snapping an 0-for-12 start to the year. The 30-year-old winger has scored the game-winning goal in each of his team's first three games and is tied for second in the NHL with five goals.

    (10/8/17) Neal recorded the game-winning overtime goal during Saturday's 2-1 victory against the Coyotes.

    One night after scoring two third-period goals to help Vegas win its first game, Neal did it again in overtime against Arizona. He's stacked his stat line across the board with three goals, eight shots, five hits and two penalty minutes in two games. Neal is quickly becoming the go-to scorer for the Golden Knights and a very valuable fantasy commodity.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Plays hero Opening Night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/17) Neal scored two third-period goals during Friday's 2-1 win over Dallas. He also recorded four shots, four hits and a minor penalty.

    The veteran winger was nursing a hand injury throughout training camp and wasn't a lock to suit up for Friday's game, so his huge third period was all the more special. While the Vegas roster doesn't jump off the page, the Golden Knights should be competitive most nights. As a result, Neal has the potential to move the needle across all fantasy categories and turn in a serviceable campaign. It's definitely important to note that staying healthy will be the key to Neal's virtual value, though.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Will play in season opener

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/17) Neal (hand) will suit up for Friday's contest against Dallas, Sean Shapiro of NHL.com reports.

    There was growing optimism all week that Neal would take part in Vegas' inaugural game and now it's official. The right winger will play alongside Cody Eakin and David Perron on the second line Friday. The 30-year-old should provide the Golden Knights with plenty of leadership and offense all season.
