OK Daily: Marchessault Misses Out On ASG, NHL To Stop Testing Asymptomatic Players



Jonathan Marchessault Vegas Golden Knights west division

About last night…

The Vegas Golden Knights blew a three-goal lead to the Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night at T-Mobile Arena and lost the game 5-3. Several things are to blame. Shaky goaltending, weak defense, and a lack of urgency on offense. But the Golden Knights are moving forwards and not looking in the rearview mirror. The team had yet again another multi-day break before their next game. They take on the struggling Montreal Canadiens Thursday night, once again at home.

Vegas: Robin Lehner wanted a call for goaltender interference on the Penguins’ first goal in their comeback. He never got the call, but head coach Peter DeBoer thought about challenging the play on the bench.

Nazem Kadri, Steven Stamkos, Jake Guentzel, and Troy Terry have been named the “last men in” for the 2022 NHL All-Star Game in Las Vegas. Terry has beaten out Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault as the Pacific Division’s “last man in.” The Golden Knights will still have Alex Pietrangelo, Mark Stone, and head coach Peter DeBoer at the All-Star Game.

Breaking News: The NHL and the NHL Players Association have agreed to stop testing asymptomatic members of teams. The new testing format will be implemented after the NHL’s All-Star break in early February. This will likely drastically decrease the number of COVID-19 cases in the NHL as fewer people are being tested. Alec Martinez is the only player on the Golden Knights who is currently in COVID-19 protocols.

Henderson: The Henderson Silver Knight’s new home of the Dollar Loan Center is hosting a job fair to look for potential new employees for the complex.

Happy 32nd birthday to Alex Pietrangelo today as well!
