  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Provides assist in win

    Karlsson logged an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Karlsson helped out on a Michael Amadio goal in the first period. Over his last 11 games, Karlsson has gotten on the scoresheet seven times, putting up four goals and three helpers in that span. The veteran center has matched his point total from last season -- he's at 35 points in 52 contests in 2022-23 compared to 67 games a year ago. He's added 104 shots on net, a plus-2 rating, 36 hits and 29 blocked shots this year.

  • Golden Knights' Reilly Smith: Adds helper Tuesday

    Smith posted an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Smith found Michael Amadio for the game-tying goal early in the first period. The 31-year-old Smith still hasn't scored in 2023, and with just five helpers and a minus-4 rating in 13 contests in that span, he's been a bit tough to trust in fantasy. The winger is up to 33 points, 132 shots on net, 50 hits and a minus-1 rating through 52 outings overall, putting him five points shy of matching his output from last season.

  • Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Picks up helper in win

    Theodore notched an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Theodore's helper was his first point in three games since he returned from a leg injury that kept him out of action for about six weeks. The defenseman set up a Chandler Stephenson tally in the second period. Theodore has four goals, nine assists, 81 shots on net, 43 blocked shots and a plus-15 rating through 32 contests overall. He'll continue to play in a top-four role with power-play time as a key part of the Golden Knights' defense.

  • Golden Knights' Michael Amadio: Pots goal in win

    Amadio scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Amadio tied the game at 1-1 just 1:23 after the Predators opened the scoring in the first period. The 26-year-old saw his even-strength minutes alongside Reilly Smith and William Karlsson on the second line. Amadio has been limited to three goals in 13 outings since the start of January, and he's up to 13 points, 55 shots on net, 38 hits and a minus-6 rating through 38 contests overall while frequently moving around the lineup.

  • Golden Knights' Alex Pietrangelo: Fills empty cage

    Pietrangelo scored an empty-net goal on two shots, blocked six shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Pietrangelo wrapped a clearance around the boards, and it went all the way down the ice into the empty net. The 33-year-old snapped a four-game point drought with the insurance marker, which was his sixth goal this season. He's up to 32 points, 108 shots on net, 119 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating through 43 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' William Carrier: Earns two points Tuesday

    Carrier scored a goal on three shots, added an assist, went plus-4 and logged two PIM in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Carrier scored the go-ahead goal on a breakaway and also set up Phil Kessel's first-period tally. With three goals and three assists over his last five outings, Carrier has worked well with Kessel and Chandler Stephenson on the third line recently. Carrier's 20 points in 46 contests matches his career-best total from 63 games last season. The 28-year-old has added 116 hits, 96 shots on net, 20 PIM and a plus-11 rating in 2022-23.

  • Golden Knights' Phil Kessel: Pair of points in win

    Kessel scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Kessel and Chandler Stephenson assisted on each other's goals in the contest. After the game, head coach Bruce Cassidy said Kessel is "going to the net, he's contributing" while playing alongside Stephenson, per Danny Webster of the Las Vegas Sun reports. That praise suggests those two forwards, alongside William Carrier, could stick together as a line for a while. Kessel has three goals and two assists over his last five outings, and he's up to 23 points, 101 shots and a minus-9 rating through 52 contests overall.

  • Golden Knights' Chandler Stephenson: One of each Tuesday

    Stephenson scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Stephenson and linemates William Carrier and Phil Kessel each had a goal and an assist in the contest, leading the way in the win. Prior to Tuesday, Stephenson had gone 10 games without a goal while managing four helpers in that span. The 28-year-old is up to 12 tallies, 46 points, 76 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 52 outings. Even from a third-line spot, he plays enough in all situations to be a helpful forward in fantasy.

  • Golden Knights' Adin Hill: Cruises to win

    Hill stopped 16 of 17 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Hill had it pretty easy for much of the game. The Predators scored 5:04 into the contest, but the Golden Knights responded multiple times. The 26-year-old netminder had lost his previous two starts, but he hasn't given up more than three goals in any of his last eight outings. For the season, Hill is 11-5-1 with a 2.63 GAA and a .908 save percentage through 19 contests. Despite Hill's strong play lately, Logan Thompson should be expected to face the Wild on Thursday after getting a bit of a breather following his All-Star appearance.

  • Golden Knights' Daniil Miromanov: Not ready to return

    Miromanov (lower body) won't play Tuesday versus the Predators. Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    Miromanov hasn't played since Dec. 31, and there's been no indication he's anywhere close to a return yet. His status should be updated once he returns to practice.

  • Golden Knights' Adin Hill: Tending twine Tuesday

    Hill will guard the road goal against Nashville on Tuesday, Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

  • Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Activated from LTIR

    Whitecloud (lower body) was activated from long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per the NHL media site.

    This paves the way for Whitecloud to return to the lineup Tuesday against Nashville even though he was listed as a game-time decision. He has provided six points, 26 shots on goal, 56 blocks and 50 hits in 30 games this season.

  • Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Slated to be game-time call

    Whitecloud (lower body) will be a game-time decision Tuesday against Nashville, Owen Krepps of Vegas Hockey Now reports.

    Whitecloud, who has been out since Dec. 11, is very close to being ready to return to the lineup. He skated alongside Nicolas Hague during Monday's practice. Whitecloud has six points, 26 shots on goal, 56 blocks and 50 hits in 30 games this season.

  • Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Back on the ice

    Whitecloud (lower body) was a full participant at practice Sunday, Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Whitecloud has been out since Dec. 11, missing the last 21 games with a lower-body issue. Vegas is back in action Tuesday against Nashville and it's unclear if the 26-year-old will be ready for that contest. He's been held to six points through 30 games this season.

  • Golden Knights' Mark Stone: Out indefinitely following surgery

    Stone (back) underwent surgery Wednesday and will be out indefinitely.

    Stone has now undergone two surgeries on his back in less than a calendar year, though it was previously reported his current injury is different from the one he dealt with last season. The 30-year-old's indefinite absence will continue to test the Golden Knights' offense and forward depth. The winger is not currently on long-term injured reserve, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him placed there at some point if Vegas needs to gain flexibility with the salary cap.

  • Golden Knights' Phil Kessel: Manages helper

    Kessel logged an assist and a team-high seven shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    Kessel and Jack Eichel led the charge with seven shots each, while the Golden Knights put up 45 shots against Semyon Varlamov. The 35-year-old Kessel had the secondary helper on William Carrier's tally in the second period. With three goals and four assists over 12 outings in January, this was Kessel's best month of the season. He's up to nine tallies, 12 helpers, 99 shots on net, 20 PIM and a minus-10 rating through 51 appearances this season.

  • Golden Knights' Chandler Stephenson: Adds assist Saturday

    Stephenson logged an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    Stephenson has picked up four helpers over his last five games, but he's now gone 10 outings without a goal. The 28-year-old set up William Carrier for the Golden Knights' lone goal on 45 shots in this close contest. Head coach Bruce Cassidy has shuffled his lines in an attempt to get his ice-cold offense going, leading to Stephenson playing on the third line, but he still saw 20:15 of ice time to lead the team's forwards. The Saskatchewan native has 11 tallies, 33 helpers, 74 shots on net, 58 hits, 35 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 51 contests overall.

    Carrier tallied at 16:08 of the second period, and that was all the Golden Knights could muster despite putting 45 shots on target versus Semyon Varlamov. Carrier has two goals and two assists over his last four outings, with a five-game absence in the middle of that due to an upper-body injury. He's up to 12 tallies, 18 points, 93 shots on net, 116 hits and a plus-7 rating through 45 outings this season while playing in a bottom-six role.
