We have a lot of news to get to today so let’s just jump right into things.

Derrick Pouliot, who was recently signed by the Golden Knights to an NHL contract has been put on waivers. Brayden Pachal and Jake Leschyshyn have been recalled from the Henderson Silver Knights.

There are essentially five options the Golden Knights have for this year’s deadline.

One of these options is for the Golden Knights to trade for a goaltender such as Joonas Korpisalo or Alexander Georgiev. Sources have also told Vegas Hockey Now that the Golden Knights are interested in Semyon Varlamov.

The recent play of Logan Thompson has reshaped the goalie conversation with the Golden Knights.

What the Golden Knights doing at the deadline will be reliant on the status of starting goaltender Robin Lehner and his health.

Standings Update: Central- COL 93, STL 77, MIN 76 | Pacific- CGY 84, LAK 76, EDM 74 | Wild Card- NSH 76, VGK 72

Out: DAL 69, VAN 67, WPG 66, ANA 65, SJS 60, CHI 53, SEA 44, ARZ 44

Vegas will not be competitive again until we fire McCrimmon. I don’t know who he works for, but it isn’t us.
