Happy Tuesday, folks! Let’s check out what’s going on with the Golden Knights:

- This Vadim Shipachyov situation is pretty gnarly, right? First it looked as if he was ready to go back to Russia, but now it appears he’ll be staying in the Knights’ system after all. This soap opera is far from over. [Knights On Ice]

- Our beloved Marc-Andre Fleury has been named the NHL’s second star of the week! If it weren’t for that Alex Ovechkin fellow, he’d probably have been named first star, but it’s fine. Congratulations, Flower! [Knights On Ice]

- The Golden Knights are making their home debut tonight, but they won’t just be playing for a win. They’ll be playing for Las Vegas. [The Denver Post]

- Speaking of tonight’s game, the Golden Knights and Arizona Coyotes already seem to hate each other quite a bit. Could this be the beginning of a fantastic new rivalry in the Pacific Division? [AZCentral]

- Golden Knights fan Holmes Pooser made a custom “Vegas Strong” jersey honoring the victims of last week’s mass shooting and you’ll definitely want to take a look at it. [KTNV Las Vegas]
