The news comes ahead of the Golden Knights’ scheduled game vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the latest addition to the COVID-19 protocol will have an impact on the lineup.
Shea Theodore has been one of Vegas’ best defenders this year, Nicolas Roy is having a tremendous season, and Nolan Patrick only recently returned to the lineup. The Golden Knights are getting familiar reinforcements in Jake Leschyshyn, Jonas Rondbjerg and Daniil Miromanov from the Henderson Silver Knights, and they will slot in somewhere in the lineup.
Heading into tonight’s game, the Golden Knights are 6-3-1 over their last 10 games played, but are coming off a loss. The Leafs are 6-2-2 over their last 10, and are coming off an overtime loss vs. the Colorado Avalanche.
