The Vegas Golden Knights are in the midst of a three-day break from the NHL schedule. They have attempted to use this time to rest and recover from their injuries but luck has not found their way.
William Karlsson, who is already out with a broken foot is now in COVID-19 protocol. Michael Amadio has been taken off the list and is eligible to return. Alec Martinez and Nolan Patrick are still a ways out from returning.
There has been a good bit of NHL trade rumors circulating around these past few days. Evander Kane and Jake DeBrusk have found themselves centered in the NHL trade chatter. DeBrusk has officially requested a trade from the Boston Bruins and Kane has cleared waivers going from the San Jose Sharks to the San Jose Barracuda of the AHL.
Vegas: In case you missed it, there were three unique fights in the NHL recently which included a prosthetic leg, a thrown glove, and a biting incident.
