Golden Knights' Tomas Nosek: Pots game-winner against Isles
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.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Back in win column
Fleury turned aside 23 of 25 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Islanders.
The veteran netminder continues to roll, and Fleury is now 10-2 over his last 12 starts with a 2.34 GAA and .919 save percentage. The Golden Knights are surging back towards the top of the Pacific Division, and Fleury's huge workload gives him tremendous fantasy value while they do so.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Won't play Wednesday
Stastny (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Islanders.
Stastny was previously considered a game-time decision against the Islanders, but he'll have to wait for Friday's matchup with New Jersey for his next opportunity to return to the lineup. The veteran forward has been sidelined since Oct. 8 due to a lower-body injury, so he'll likely have some serious rust to shake off once he's finally cleared to play.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: In goal against Isles
Fleury will start in goal on the road Wednesday, facing the cross-conference Islanders, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Fleury is tied with Frederik Andersen for the league lead in wins at 17 apiece, though Vegas' go-to netminder has appeared in three more games than the Danish goalie for the Buds. Flower, who has made 28 starts, will turn his attention to an Islanders club that ranks second in the league in converting high-danger scoring chances at even strength at 57.75 percent....

Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Game-time call
Stastny (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Islanders, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports.
Stastny has been sidelined since Oct. 8 due to a lower-body injury, but he was finally cleared for contact ahead of Tuesday's practice, which was the first indication that he was likely nearing a return to the lineup. Another update on the veteran forward's status should surface once Vegas takes the ice for pregame warmups against New York.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Full practice participant
Stastny (lower body) has been cleared for contact and was at practice Tuesday in a regular sweater, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Stastny rotated in for line rushes with the rest of the Golden Knights' third line (Oscar Lindberg, Ryan Carpenter and Tomas Nosek), which could be an indication of where he'll fit into the lineup once given the all-clear. The Quebec native has logged just three games for Vegas since signing with the club in the offseason but appears to be nearing a return to the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Reid Duke: Sent back down to AHL
Duke was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Monday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Duke didn't get into any game action in the time he was up with Vegas. His NHL debut will have to wait until the next time he gets called up. That is, if he actually makes the lineup that time.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Breaks scoreless streak
Miller tallied two assists in a 4-2 victory against the Stars on Sunday.
The two helpers, one of which came on the power play, broke a six-game pointless streak for Miller. He only has 14 points this season, but when he does score, Miller usually accumulates points in bunches. This was his fourth multi-point game of the season. He has two goals and 14 points with a minus-3 rating in 32 games.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Picks up league-leading 17th win
Fleury allowed two goals on 24 shots in a 4-2 victory against the Stars on Sunday.
The 34-year-old continues to be a little inconsistent, but he leads all goaltenders in starts, wins, minutes and shutouts. Fleury has won a lot lately, going 9-2-0 in his last 11 games. During that time, he's steadied himself, posting a .918 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Rocking home net Sunday
Fleury led the Golden Knights out to the ice for pregame Sunday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. As a result, he will draw the home start against the Stars.
Fleury was rocked by the Kings on Saturday, as he permitted five goals on 25 shots, but that game was in Los Angeles. Vegas' celebrated netminder boasts a stellar .929 save percentage at home compared to a wholly substandard .888 save mark outside of Sin City. Fleury will take on a Stars team that will counter with Ben Bishop and boasts a robust conference record of 10-2-2.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Will join team on road trip
Coach Gerard Gallant said Stastny (lower body) is close to returning and will travel with the team on its upcoming four-game road trip, Danny Webster of NHL.com reports.
Stastny has participated in practice recently. The Golden Knights will play the Islanders, Devils, Rangers and Blue Jackets during their trip. He'll need to be activated from injured reserve before he enters the lineup again, but expect him to reclaim his spot as the second-line center when he's ready.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Crushed by Kings
Fleury turned aside 20 of 25 shots in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Kings.
The 34-year-old has been hot lately, winning eight of his last nine starts, but he came out flat Saturday afternoon and the Knights' offense couldn't bail him out. Fleury still has an 11-6-0 record and .913 save percentage over 17 outings since the beginning of November, and barring a serious injury he appears headed for his 10th career 30-win season....

Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Starting in LA
Fleury will guard the cage in Saturday's road game against the Kings, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.
Fleury played pretty well in his last start, turning aside 32 of 35 shots en route to a 4-3 victory over the Blackhawks on Thursday. The veteran backstop will look to stay dialed in and pick up a third consecutive victory in a favorable road matchup with a Kings club that's only averaging 2.41 goals per game at home this campaign, 30th in the NHL....

Golden Knights' Reilly Smith: Ends goal drought among three points
Smith scored on the power play for his first goal since Nov. 18 and added two assists in a 4-3 win over Chicago on Thursday.
Smith has remained a solid contributor thanks to his assist totals, and that's where the majority of his points are likely to come from in Vegas' attack. With the Golden Knights finally playing quality hockey, he's a good starting option in all formats.... See More ... See Less
