Every day here at Vegas Hockey Now, we try and do a daily post detailing news around the NHL to provide you all with hockey world updates. For the 2022-23 season, we’ll switch it up a bit.

With it being Sunday, we’re stealing an idea from Montreal Hockey Now and going to start doing a week-in-review type of thing. Here’s a recap of the Golden Knight’s 10/3- 10/8 week.

But first, some Sunday news.

  • Jonas Rondbjerg has been placed on waivers and will need to clear to be sent down to the Henderson Silver Knights.
  • The Golden Knights and every team in the NHL have until tomorrow afternoon to submit their starting 2022-23 roster. Nicolas Hague remains unsigned.
  • Expect a couple more roster cuts as the Golden Knights have to trim their roster to 23.
  • Paul Cotter, Jake Leschyshyn, Sakari Manninen, Pavel Dorofeyev, Jake Bischoff, and Kaedan Korczak are all still up with the big club.
