Golden Knights' Grigori Denisenko: Recalled from AHL
Denisenko was brought up from AHL Henderson on Tuesday.
Denisenko is back with the Golden Knights after being temporarily returned to the minors Monday. He was a healthy scratch for Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks but could play Tuesday versus Nashville.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Adin Hill: Facing Predators
Hill is slated to start between the pipes in Tuesday's home game versus Nashville, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Hill hasn't been great of late, suffering back-to-back losses to the Wild and the Hurricanes while posting a sub-par 3.62 GAA and .875 save percentage. He'll try to get back on track in a home matchup with a Predators squad that's 14-10-2 on the road this year.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Playing Tuesday
Theodore will be in action against the Predators on Tuesday.
Theodore will be in the lineup for the first time since Nov. 22 versus Dallas, a stretch of 35 games on the shelf. With the blueliner suiting up, he could be restored to a power-play role where he has registered 10 of his 18 points this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Byron Froese: Sent to AHL
Froese was assigned to AHL Henderson on Tuesday.
Froese hasn't picked up a point in nine NHL outings this campaign but has eight goals and seven assists over 37 appearances at the minor-league level in 2023-24. If Shea Theodore (upper body) plays Tuesday against Nashville, Vegas might dress seven blueliners and 11 forwards.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Zach Whitecloud: Notches assist in win
Whitecloud posted an assist and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Whitecloud has two helpers over his last three games following a 21-game slump. The 27-year-old could be in risk of losing his near-everyday spot in the lineup once Shea Theodore (upper body), who was activated from long-term injured reserve and scratched Monday, makes his return. Whitecloud has just seven points, 33 shots on net, 79 hits, 68 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating over 39 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Alex Pietrangelo: Collects power-play assist
Pietrangelo notched a power-play assist, five blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Pietrangelo has nine helpers over his last 12 contests, and he hasn't gone more than one game without a point in that span. The 34-year-old could see a smaller role on the power play soon -- Shea Theodore (upper body) could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday's game versus the Predators. Pietrangelo has 26 points (eight on the power play) with 116 shots on net, 118 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating over 50 appearances in a top-four role this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Mark Stone: Nabs assist Monday
Stone logged an assist in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Stone has gotten on the scoresheet in four of the last five games, posting a goal and three assists in that span. He's gone a month without a power-play point, his last coming Jan. 18 versus the Rangers. The 31-year-old winger is still one of the Golden Knights' most important forwards. He's been good in 2023-24, racking up 53 points, 116 shots on net and a plus-1 rating over 55 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Alec Martinez: Distributes three helpers
Martinez notched three assists, two shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Martinez assisted on the Golden Knights' last three goals of the game, including one on the power play. He had gone four contests without a point entering Monday. Martinez's time to shine may be near a close -- Shea Theodore (upper body) was activated from long-term injured reserve but didn't play Monday. If Theodore returns Tuesday versus the Predators, Martinez will likely lose some ice time and his power-play role. Through 38 appearances, Martinez has 14 points, 56 shots on net, 125 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating as a defensive ace in a top-four role.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Keegan Kolesar: Pots insurance marker
Kolesar scored a goal on two shots and added a team-high six hits in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Kolesar snapped a five-game drought with his tally. He's scored in line with his fourth-line role lately, posting three goals and two assists over 17 contests since the start of January. Kolesar is up to 11 points, 46 shots on net, 167 hits, 34 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 52 appearances, so he doesn't need to be tracked closely in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Michael Amadio: Scores early in win
Amadio scored a goal on two shots and blocked three shots in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Amadio tallied just 2:28 into the game. It was his second goal in the last three games, an improvement after his recent run of nine contests without a point. The 27-year-old is up to eight goals, 19 points, 69 shots on net and a plus-6 rating through 48 outings overall while mainly working a bottom-six role this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Finds twine in win
Karlsson scored a goal on four shots in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Karlsson gave the Golden Knights a 2-0 lead at 4:25 of the first period. The center has three points over five games since he returned from a lower-body injury. His scoring pace has slowed a bit, but he remains a key all-situations forward with 17 goals, 18 assists, 106 shots on net and a plus-10 rating over 43 appearances this season. Karlsson has been on the third line since his return, but his ice time is still closer to that of a top-six forward.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Mason Morelli: Two points in NHL debut
Morelli scored a goal on three shots, added an assist and logged two hits in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Morelli scored on a power play late in the first period and also helped out on Keegan Kolesar's insurance marker in the second. It was a dream debut for Morelli, who is a bit of a late bloomer at 28 years old. He's averaged roughly a point every two games at the AHL level, so his scoring contributions in the NHL are likely to be modest, especially if he remains in a bottom-six role.... See More ...

Golden Knights' Logan Thompson: Shuts out Sharks
Thompson posted a 29-save shutout in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.
Thompson has seen little playing time since Adin Hill returned from an undisclosed injury. Monday's performance was a strong case for Thompson to play more, as he earned his first shutout of the season and the fourth of his career in a strong outing. The 26-year-old went 5-4-1 with a 2.72 GAA and a .912 save percentage over 10 games in January, but this was his first action since the All-Star break. Hill will likely get the nod Tuesday versus the Predators, but it's unclear how the Golden Knights' goalie usage might develop beyond that as head coach Bruce Cassidy deals with the luxury of having two capable netminders....

Golden Knights' Jack Eichel: Shifts to LTIR
Eichel (knee) was moved to long-term injured reserve Monday, per CapFriendly.
Eichel will still be eligible to return once he's healthy but there hasn't been much update on his status other than the fact that he's skating on his own. The 27-year-old notched 19 goals and 44 points through 42 games before suffering his injury.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Not expected to play
Theodore (upper body) is not expected to play Monday against San Jose, per Jesse Granger of The Athletic.
Theodore took part in the pregame warmup after being activated from long-term injured reserve, but his return will probably come Tuesday versus Nashville. He has piled up four goals, 18 points, 52 shots on net and 26 blocked shots over 20 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Logan Thompson: Between pipes versus San Jose
Thompson will guard the cage against the Sharks on the road Monday, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.
Thompson will make his first appearance in the crease since before the All-Star break when he gave up four goals on 28 shots to the Red Wings on Jan. 27. The Calgary native has allowed 10 goals on 66 shots (.848 save percentage) over his last two outings, which has no doubt factored into the Golden Knights' decision to lean more heavily on Adin Hill of late.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Grigori Denisenko: Summoned from AHL
Denisenko was recalled from AHL Henderson on Monday.
Denisenko has 14 goals and 40 points in 45 games at the minor-league level this season. He hasn't picked up a point in three appearances with Vegas during the 2023-24 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Golden Knights' Shea Theodore: Removed from LTIR
Theodore (upper body) was activated from long-term injured reserve Monday, per the NHL media site.
Theodore appears to be ready to return from a 34-game absence Monday against San Jose. He should occupy a top-four role as well as see power-play time on the first unit. Theodore has picked up four goals, 18 points and 52 shots on net over 20 appearances this campaign.... See More ... See Less
