Golden Knights' Laurent Brossoit: Progressing after surgery
Brossoit (undisclosed) is "ahead of schedule" but likely won't be ready for Opening Night, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
With Robin Lehner (hip) out for the 2022-23 season, Brossoit and Logan Thompson are expected to handle the goaltending duties for Vegas. Brossoit underwent surgery this offseason and, while the progress has been good, it sounds like he could begin the year on injured reserve. The 29-year-old posted a 2.90 GAA and an .895 save percentage through a career-high 24 appearances last season. An extended absence for Brossoit or a hot start by Thompson could shape how the team utilizes the tandem once both are available.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nolan Patrick: Likely opening year on LTIR
Patrick (upper body) is likely to begin the 2022-23 season on long-term injured reserve, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.
Patrick sustained this latest upper-body injury in late March, and as of July, he'd made no substantial progress in his recovery. The 23-year-old center has dealt with traumatic head injuries for much of his professional career, and it's expected he'll be forced to miss at least the first month of the upcoming season -- and likely much more....

Golden Knights' Jake Leschyshyn: Inks three-year deal
Leschyshyn signed a three-year contract with the Golden Knights on Saturday.
Leschyshyn established himself as an NHLer last season when injuries ravaged the Golden Knights' forward corps. While he managed just six points in 41 games in his age-22 season, he'll have a little job security with a three-year deal. The forward's contract is one-way in all three years, so it seems like he'll have a realistic chance to make the Opening Night roster this season, albeit in a bottom-six role.... See More ...

Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Receives three-year extension
Cotter signed a three-year contract extension with the Golden Knights on Saturday.
Cotter's deal is two-way in 2023-24 and one-way for the two seasons after that. As such, he shouldn't be expected to take on a regular role with the Golden Knights for another couple of years, though he'll be at the top of the list for call-ups when injuries stretch the team's forward depth. The 22-year-old had two goals and 17 hits in seven games last year.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Won't play this season
Lehner will miss the entirety of the 2022-23 season due to pending hip surgery, the team announced Thursday.
Lehner was already in doubt for the start of training camp after having offseason shoulder surgery, but clearly the netminder is dealing with a more significant injury. With Lehner sidelined, the Knights will have to turn to either career-backup Laurent Brossoit, who is dealing with an undisclosed injury of his own, or up-and-comer Logan Thompson. While not yet official, Lehner will no doubt be placed on long-term injured reserve when the season starts to give Vegas some cap flexibility.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Keegan Kolesar: Confirms readiness for camp
Kolesar (lower body) said he'll be ready once training camp opens, Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Kolesar underwent offseason surgery after missing time at the end of the campaign. The winger signed a three-year, $4.2 million contract last week to stay in Vegas, where he figures to be a bottom-six mainstay. As such, he'll be a low-end fantasy target with his biggest production coming from hits and PIM.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nicolas Roy: Inks five-year extension
Roy signed a five-year, $3 million AAV contract with Vegas on Monday.
Roy cashed in after a breakout 2021-22 campaign in which he set new career highs in goals (15), points (39), hits (85) and average ice time (16:16). He also put 145 shots on net and tallied 51 PIM through 78 games. The 25-year-old winger should maintain a spot in Vegas' middle six and see some power-play time for the next several seasons.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Keegan Kolesar: Inks three-year extension
Kolesar (undisclosed) signed a three-year, $1.4 million AAV deal with Vegas on Friday.
Kolesar racked up 24 points and 246 hits through 77 games in his first season as an everyday skater for Vegas. The 25-year-old winger averaged 12:40 of ice time and should add a physical presence to the team's bottom-six for the duration of this contract. He underwent surgery this offseason and it's unclear whether he'll be ready for training camp.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Brayden Pachal: Inks one-year extension
Pachal signed a one-year contract extension with the Golden Knights on Thursday.
Pachal spent most of the 2021-22 campaign in the minors, picking up 11 points through 65 games with AHL Henderson, but he also made two appearances with the big club, going scoreless over that span. He'll likely have a similar role in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nolan Patrick: Making no progress in recovery
Patrick (undisclosed) has not made substantial progress in recovering from an injury he sustained in March, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Patrick's long history of traumatic head injuries is certainly a point of concern, though the Golden Knights have not revealed what's ailing the 23-year-old. He was deemed out indefinitely at the end of the season, and with no progress made so far, it seems likely the center will miss part of the 2022-23 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: At risk of missing training camp
Lehner's (shoulder) timeline to be ready for the start of the 2022-23 season is "tight," Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Lehner underwent shoulder surgery in May, and it's possible his recovery wipes out his participation in some or all of training camp. The Golden Knights have let him rehab his injury individually, though general manager Kelly McCrimmon anticipates the goalie will return to Vegas soon. His status for the start of the regular season will likely be determined later in the summer.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Gage Quinney: Receives AHL deal
Quinney signed a one-year, AHL-only contract with the Henderson Silver Knights on Thursday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Quinney was on a two-way deal with the Golden Knights last year. It appears they like him enough to keep him around the organization after he posted 23 points in 38 contests in 2021-22 with Henderson. It's possible the forward later signs a two-way contract to get on the NHL club's books.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Jake Bischoff: Receives AHL contract
Bischoff (undisclosed) signed a one-year, AHL-only contract with the Henderson Silver Knights on Thursday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Bischoff didn't play in 2021-22, but this move indicates he could be available for Henderson in the upcoming season. The nature of the defenseman's injury isn't known, but he was limited to only seven contests in 2020-21 before missing all of last year.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Sakari Manninen: Joining Vegas
Manninen signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Golden Knights on Thursday.
Manninen was never drafted and has spent the last four years with Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the KHL. He led that team with 19 goals in 38 contests last season, and he's racked up 58 goals across his four seasons in the Russian league. The Finn also posted 10 points in 10 games at the World Championship and seven points in six outings at the Olympics. He'll have the chance to compete for a depth role with the Golden Knights in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Spencer Foo: Returning to North America
Foo signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Golden Knights on Thursday.
Foo spent the last three years with Kunlun Red Star of the KHL. He had 76 points in 154 games across those three seasons, and he also represented China in the Olympic Games. The forward had two goals in four appearances with the Flames in 2017-18, but he's unlikely to be much more than a depth addition for the Golden Knights.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Byron Froese: Joins Golden Knights
Froese signed a two-year, two-way contract with Vegas on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.
Froese spent the entirety of the 2021-22 season with AHL Stockton, picking up 20 goals and 37 points through 55 contests. The 31-year-old forward will almost certainly continue to spend most, if not all of his time in the minors over the next two campaigns.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Michael Hutchinson: Signs with Vegas
Hutchinson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Golden Knights on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.
Hutchinson will likely enter the 2022-23 campaign as the fourth netminder on Vegas' organizational depth chart, so we don't expect him to spend much time in the NHL next season. He went 11-10-5 while posting a 3.23 GAA and an .899 save percentage through 28 appearances with AHL Toronto in 2021-22.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Staying in Vegas
Howden (upper body) signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Golden Knights on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.
Howden went unqualified earlier in the week, but the Golden Knights were able to bring him back and give him a raise. The 24-year-old should compete for a bottom-six job in 2022-23 after posting 20 points in 47 contests before his season ended early with an injury in March.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Jonas Rondbjerg: Pens three-year deal
Rondbjerg signed a three-year contract worth $2.3 million with the Golden Knights on Wednesday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Rondbjerg had six points in 30 games last season, his first at the NHL level. The 23-year-old winger will compete for a bottom-six role in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
