The Vegas Golden Knights have announced that forward Jack Eichel will miss Saturday's game against the Dallas Stars with an injury. Eichel's injury is considered day-to-day, and no other information regarding his injury was revealed.
In Winter, Eichel missed 14 games with a lower-body injury. This season the star forward has 65 points in 66 games played.
The announcement was made roughly two hours before game time as the VGK will play the Stars at 12:30 p.m. today from American Airlines Center. Head coach Bruce Cassidy will have to make lineup changes; as a result, likely put center Teddy Blueger back into the lineup.
Here's our best guess at what the team could look like today. We'll obviously find out in little due time.
