Golden Knights' Jonathan Marchessault: Picks up apple in narrow loss
Marchessault collected an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins.
The top-line winger has dropped box-score goose eggs in 12 of 20 games this calendar year, but he continues to meet value in plenty of DFS setups thanks to his heavy shot volume. Marchessault already has 226 shots in 62 games, putting him on track for a career-high 299 of those this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Quiet in return
Holden (undisclosed) skated 19:15 in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins on Wednesday.
Holden skated on the third pairing with Deryk Engelland. Holden supplied one hit after missing 10 games with an undisclosed injury. With 13 points in 52 games this year, he's not a defender who would be on most fantasy owners' radar.... See More ... See Less

Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Yields two goals in shootout loss
Fleury stopped 25 of 27 shots but suffered the shootout loss in a 3-2 game versus the Bruins.
Fleury had backed up Malcolm Subban in the last two games, but made a strong return to the Vegas crease. Fleury is 29-18-5 this season, with a 2.58 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He should retain control of the crease for the Golden Knights now that he's had some rest.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Activated off IR
Holden (undisclosed) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
Holden has missed the Golden Knights' last 10 games due to an undisclosed issue, but he was a full participant at Wednesday's morning skate, which was the first indication that he was likely close to returning to game action. The 31-year-old is expected to slot into a bottom-pairing role for Wednesday's matchup with Boston.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Jake Bischoff: Sent back to minors
Bischoff was shipped to AHL Chicago on Wedensday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Bischoff didn't see the ice in this stint with the Golden Knights, but merely gave the team an eighth defensemen. Wednesday's transaction likely occurred to make room for Nick Holden (undisclosed), who is planning a return from injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Back in crease Wednesday
Fleury will start Wednesday's home contest against the Bruins, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Fleury got a much-needed break the past two games but is back in the crease after amassing an ugly 3.49 GAA and .889 save percentage in his past six starts. The 34-year-old could be busy between the pipes when he faces an offense that's generated 32.7 shots per game.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' William Carrier: Sustains upper-body injury
Carrier is considered week-to-week due to an upper-body injury, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
There are some concerns that Carrier suffered a concussion, though the team wouldn't go beyond an upper-body designation. Based on his announced timeline, the winger will miss at least the next two games and could be a candidate for injured reserve in order to free up an extra roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Malcolm Subban: Holds own in loss
Subban allowed three goals on 38 shots Monday's 3-0 loss to the Avalanche.
He made his second straight start but saw his three-game winning streak snapped in this outing. This was just Subban's ninth start of the season, and he's landed above a .920 save percentage in each of the last five. If he keeps playing like this, Subban could rotate in more often to ensure Marc-Andre Fleury is fresh for the playoffs.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Nick Holden: Ruled out Monday
Holden (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup against Colorado on Monday.
Holden is set to miss his 10th game due to his undisclosed issue, having last played Jan. 21 versus Minnesota. The blueliner has tallied 13 points this year and could still reach the 20-point mark before the end of the season if he can return soon. Jon Merrill or Colin Miller figures to get bumped from the lineup once Holden is cleared to play.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Malcolm Subban: Guarding cage against Avs
Subban will be in goal on the road versus Colorado on Monday.
Subban will be making back-to-back starts for the first time this season, having made 29 of 30 saves in Saturday's victory over Nashville. The young netminder will give starter Marc-Andre Fleury an extra day of rest, but shouldn't expect to take too many starts away from the three-time Stanley Cup champion.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Tallies goal
Theodore scored another goal in a 5-1 victory against the Predators on Saturday.
It was his first goal since Feb. 1, but it was his ninth of the season, which is a new career high. Theodore is three points away from also setting a career best in the points category. He has nine goals and 26 points in 59 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Max Pacioretty: Breaks out of cold streak
Pacioretty scored two goals with nine shots on net in a 5-1 victory against the Predators on Saturday.
The 30-year-old had only one assist in the last five games, so this breaks him out of a dry spell. Pacioretty missed a few games because of injury and has seen his average ice time plummet this season, but he still has more goals than he did in 2017-18. The veteran winger has 18 goals and 32 points in 47 contests.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Malcolm Subban: Wins third straight

This was just his third start since Dec. 29, but it was also his third straight victory after beginning the season with five consecutive losses. While Subban doesn't play much, he's a nice streaming option when he does. During his three-game winning streak, he owns a .960 save percentage. Overall, Subban is 3-5-0 with a 2.73 GAA and a .911 save percentage this season.... See More ... See Less
