Nate Schmidt has been reinstated from his suspension.

Schmidt was given a 20-game suspension for violating the NHL/NHLPA's Performance Enhancing Substances Program. He is eligible to make his season debut on Sunday when Vegas visits Edmonton. Schmidt produced career highs in 2017-18 with five goals, 31 assists and 36 points, 11 power-play points and 103 shots in 76 matches.

Marc-Andre Fleury let in four goals on 35 shots in Friday's 4-1 home loss against the St. Louis Blues.

Fleury was on fire last season, posting a career-best 2.24 goals-against average. However, he has registered a 2.52 GAA so far, his second-highest total since the 2009-10 campaign with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He remains a must-start fantasy option, and will look to bounce back either Sunday in Edmonton or Monday in Calgary.

Oscar Lindberg will be a healthy scratch Friday night.

Lindberg is spending his ninth straight game in the press box. He has no points in six games.
Nov 16 - 10:05 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start Friday night.

Fleury is coming off a 29-save shutout against Anaheim on Wednesday. He has an 8-7-1 record, 2.51 GAA, and .902 save percentage in 16 games this season.

Marc-Andre Fleury recorded his second shutout of the season in a 5-0 win against the Ducks on Wednesday night.

Fleury was outstanding in stopping all 29 Anaheim shots that he faced throughout the game. In 2018-19, the veteran netminder has an 8-7-1 record with a 2.51 GAA, a .902 save percentage and two shutouts.

With a pair of goals in a 5-0 win against the Ducks on Wednesday night, Cody Eakin extended his point streak to five games.

Eakin scored Vegas’ second and fourth goals of the game, with the latter being scored shorthanded and both came in the second period. Despite his recent success, in which he has collected four goals and two assists, the 27-year old is still owned in only 1% of fantasy leagues. Due to injuries to Stastny and Haula, Eakin has found his way onto Vegas’ second line and centers the likes of Max Pacioretty and Alex Tuch. It would be wise to get him into your lineups, at least until his production cools off for a few games or Stastny or Haula return.

Oscar Lindberg will be in the press box on Wednesday night when the Golden Knights host the Ducks.

In his eighth straight game as a scratch, he will be joined by Jake Bischoff and Brad Hunt.
Nov 14 - 10:04 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury is confirmed as a starter Wednesday night, when Vegas hosts the Ducks.

Make any adjustments to our rosters required here. He has a 7-7-1 record this season with a 2.69 goals-against average and .895 save percentage.
Nov 14 - 7:54 PM

Jon Merrill is expected to play on Wednesday.

Merrill, who has been scratched in three of the past six games, is slated to replace Brad Hunt in the lineup. Merrill has two assists in 15 matches this season.
Nov 14 - 4:08 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start Wednesday night against Anaheim.

Fleury could be using his new gold helmet and gold pads for the first time after he was spotted using them for a second straight practice in the morning. He has a 7-7-1 record this season with a 2.69 goals-against average and .895 save percentage.
Nov 14 - 4:06 PM

Brad Hunt is expected to be scratched on Wednesday against Anaheim.

Hunt has played well for Vegas in nine appearances this season, while contributing five points. His return to the press box is a bit surprising.

Erik Haula (lower body) is "month to month," according to coach Gerard Gallant.

Vegas moved Haula to injured reserve on Tuesday. He hasn't played since Nov. 6 due to a lower-body injury.
Nov 14 - 3:10 PM

Erik Haula (lower body) is reportedly in the process of getting second and third medical opinions.

Vegas still doesn't know the full extent of the situation. TSN's Bob McKenzie said that issue is "complicated/complex" and it may be more month-to-month than week-to-week. However, nothing is certain yet.
Nov 13 - 6:55 PM

Tomas Nosek and Ryan Carpenter have struggled on the Golden Knights' third line this season.

When the duo has skated together, they've been on the ice for just one goal and they've given up 12. "It’s tough when you get scored on every game," Nosek said. " It’s maybe in your head a bit, too. Hopefully we win the next game and build on that. We just can’t overthink it. We have to play our game and trust our game." The Golden Knights seem to have lost that magic they had last year, but there's still plenty of time for them to get their season back on track.

Max Pacioretty replaced Jonathan Marchessault on the top line Sunday.

Marchessault had been a cornerstone of the top line with William Karlsson and Reilly Smith in last season's dream year in which the expansion team went to the Stanley Cup Final but it has been a different story this season. Pacioretty replaced Marchessault while Marchessault saw time on the second line with Cody Eakin and Erik Haula. Pacioretty has only two goals this season in 14 games with nary an assist and should be on your bench at the very best at this time.
