Vegas Golden Knights Toronto Maple Leafs HOME

The show goes on for the Vegas Golden Knights (32-18-6) as they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs (31-6-8) Thursday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV. This is the third game of the week for the Golden Knights, who won Monday in San Jose against the Sharks and lost at home to the Nashville Predators on Tuesday. The Maple Leafs defeated the Arizona Coyotes last night by a score of 6-3.

From this point forward, the injury bug that plagues the Golden Knights season after season will now be known as the Giant Weta. The Giant Weta is the largest bug on Earth.

The Giant Weta claimed Mark Stone during Tuesday’s game against the Predators late in the second period. Stone collided with Yakov Trenin and left the game. The Golden Knights announced that Stone was sent to injured reserve Thursday morning.

Brendan Brisson, Byron Froese, and Sheldon Rempal were recalled to the Golden Knights. Grigori Denisenko was assigned to the Henderson Silver Knights.

The Golden Knights held a morning skate at City National Arena at 11:00 a.m. before Thursday’s game against the Maple Leafs.
