The Vegas Golden Knights are off today, as they have concluded their January schedule and wait to play the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday. They will welcome back both Alex Tuch and Peyton Krebs to T-Mobile Arena and could also potentially welcome Alec Martinez into their lineup.
The Golden Knights also made news Sunday by resigning three of their players. Could this be a sign of a cap-clearing trade coming soon?
Elsewhere in the NHL Carey Price speaks on his recovery, and the Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks could become sellers at the 2022 NHL Trade Deadline.
Vegas: The Golden Knights resigned three players Sunday to multi-year extensions. Michael Amadio and Logan Thompson got near league-minimum extensions and Brayden McNabb signed a three-year deal with an AAV of $2.85 million. Further analysis of the McNabb signing will be out later today.

Random Thing I Found: So I just finished watching South Park in full- another full watch-through before season 25 comes out this week. I love the show but didn’t think I would get to talk about it in an article until I found this…
I’ve never worked a game at Staples Center/Crypto.com Arena (yet) but I hope they still do these. Funny thing my buddy pointed out though- shouldn’t Eric Cartman be a Colorado Avalanche fan since he is from South Park, Colorado?
