Good morning everyone and happy December to you all. The Vegas Golden Knights will look to defeat the Anaheim Ducks tonight on the road after a three-day break from game action. Michael Amadio is cleared to return to the lineup after being in COVID-19 protocols. However, William Karlsson, who is already out with a broken foot, is now in protocol.
Jake DeBrusk and Evander Kane are the two newest names on the NHL trade bail board with DeBrusk requesting a trade and Kane on waivers. The Penguins unveiled a throwback third-jersey that has some ties to the legendary Snoop Dogg. Finally, Patrick Roy is interested in the vacant Montreal Canadiens general manager position.
Vegas: The Golden Knights are getting healthier at forward with players such as Max Pacioretty and Jonathan Marchessault returning. What does this mean for Keegan Kolesar? Can he use his fighting skills to keep a spot in the Golden Knights lineup?
Buffalo: Former Golden Knight Alex Tuch is back skating and led the Buffalo Sabres in team stretches after practice on Tuesday. Tuch was of course involved in the blockbuster Jack Eichel trade.
