Golden Knights' Pavel Dorofeyev: Signs entry-level pact
Dorofeyev signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Golden Knights on Monday.
Dorofeyev was immediately billed as a steal when selected in the third round of the 2019 draft, and his ability to break into the North American professional ranks a year later further supports that notion. He'll begin his stateside career with the Silver Knights of the AHL, and Dorofeyev will likely need some seasoning to adjust to the smaller ice surface before he's ready to contribute at the NHL level....

Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Earning positive report card
Whitecloud is drawing praise from Golden Knights coach Peter DeBoer, who said the defenseman is on an "amazing trajectory," Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
According to the report, DeBoer is particularly impressed by Whitecloud's offensive progression. The third-pairing defenseman has just one point (an assist) through six contests, but he's recorded 12 shots in that span, and recall that the bench boss highlighted Whitecloud's calm demeanor on the ice back in training camp. "He has composure with the puck," DeBoer said. "When he came in last year he was just playing safe. Then I saw another layer in the bubble when we got to the playoffs, where he was starting to make more plays. And you're seeing him add another layer here in training camp where he's really starting to push some offensive situations."... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Max Pacioretty: Aggressive in victory
Pacioretty recorded six hits in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Coyotes.
Mad Max appears to have played with a chip on his shoulder after the Coyotes defeated the Golden Knights 5-2 in the previous contest. However, while Pacioretty's aggressive play helped goalie Marc-Andre Fleury pitch a shutout, he's been held without a goal or assist in two consecutive games after starting the campaign with a four-game point streak....

Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Delivers winner in tight game
Karlsson scored with 43 seconds remaining in Sunday's game against Arizona to lift Vegas to a 1-0 win.
Karlsson now has 18 game-winning goals in the NHL. The goal wasn't without controversy -- the Coyotes thought icing was going to be called so their defender went the wrong way behind the net. Jonathan Marchessault popped the puck out to Karlsson near the right post and he buried it.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Perfection comes easy
Fleury made 16 saves in a 1-0 win over Arizona on Sunday.
It's his first shutout of the season and 62nd of this career. Fleury is alternating starts with Robin Lehner and is now 3-0-0. He has allowed just three goals on 61 shots (.951 save percentage).... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Facing off against Coyotes
Fleury will defend the road goal in Sunday's game versus the Coyotes, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
The Golden Knights are rolling with tandem in the crease, as Fleury and Robin Lehner have been switching off starts. Fleury has won both of his appearances this season, posting a .933 save percentage and a 1.51 GAA in the process. One of those wins came against the Coyotes, too.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nicolas Hague: Promted to active roster
The Golden Knights reassigned Hague to the active roster Sunday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Hauge was shuffled to the taxi squad for Friday's game against Arizona, but he appears on track to return to the lineup. The 22-year-old has recorded one assist and two shots while averaging 15:36 of ice time in the two games he's suited up this season. With Cody Glass demoted to the taxi squad, expect the Golden Knights to roll with 12 forwards and six defensemen for Sunday's game against Arizona.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Cody Glass: Moves to taxi squad
Glass was assigned to the taxi squad Sunday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Glass has posted two points over three games this season, but he's being sent to the taxi squad to open up a roster spot for defenseman Nicolas Hague. In turn, Glass won't play in Sunday's game against the Coyotes. The 21-year-old is eligible to practice and travel with the team. He'll need to be promoted before playing in another NHL game....

Golden Knights' Mark Stone: Extends point streak to five games
Stone collected a power-play assist, three shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Stone kept his point streak alive at five games when he set up Cody Glass's tally in the third period. With points in every game this year, Stone has racked up two goals, six helpers, 11 shots on net and a plus-6 rating. Few players have started 2020-21 hotter than Stone, as the captain has led by example for Vegas.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Cody Glass: Nets power-play goal in loss
Glass scored a power-play goal and won eight of 10 faceoffs in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Glass spent the last two games in a suit as a member of the taxi squad, but he drew into the lineup to center the third line Friday. He also saw usage on the second power-play unit, which led to his goal in the third period. The 21-year-old center has two points in three appearances this year, but Glass has only played when head coach Pete DeBoer uses a 13-forward, five-defensemen lineup. As a young forward, Glass may benefit from sitting out occasionally, making it tough to roster him in single-year fantasy leagues -- he's still a gem for dynasty managers.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Factors in on both goals in loss
Theodore scored a goal on three shots and added an assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Theodore was the most productive of Vegas' skaters, but his two-point effort wasn't enough to salvage a result. The 25-year-old blueliner added a pair of blocked shots, two PIM and a minus-2 rating Friday. Through five games, Theodore has three goals, three helpers, 19 shots on net and a plus-6 rating. He's making the most of his playing time and has yet to be negatively impacted by free-agent signee Alex Pietrangelo on the scoresheet.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Solved by Coyotes
Lehner allowed four goals on 25 shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.
Lehner beat the Coyotes on Monday in Vegas, but the home team has won all three meetings between the two teams so far. Friday was easily the worst of Lehner's three starts this year, but nobody's perfect. Head coach Pete DeBoer has alternated his goalies through five games -- Marc-Andre Fleury is in line for Sunday's start if that pattern holds, but we haven't seen what the boss does after a loss yet....

Golden Knights' Robin Lehner: Seeking third straight win
Lehner will defend the road net in Friday's game against the Coyotes, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Lehner has allowed just four goals on 54 shots this year -- a .926 save percentage. He and Marc-Andre Fleury have been switching off in the blue paint this year, a strategy that has the team undefeated through four games. Both Lehner and Fleury have defeated the Coyotes this year, facing a combined 55 shots between the two contests.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nicolas Hague: Heads to taxi squad
Hague was assigned to the taxi squad Friday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Hague didn't surpass 16 minutes of ice time in either of the last two games, but he added two shots on net, five hits and an assist between those outings. The 22-year-old will be able to practice and travel with the team while on the practice squad, but he's not expected to play Friday against the Coyotes.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Cody Glass: Up with big club
Glass was recalled from the practice squad and is expected to play against Arizona on Friday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Glass figures to take a third-line role against the Coyotes after sitting out the club's previous two outings. The 21-year-old Winnipeg native could offer intriguing fantasy upside playing with Nicolas Roy and Alex Tuch, though he would certainly be a high-risk, high-reward play.... See More ... See Less
