Alex Pietrangelo will be away from the Vegas Golden Knights for an undetermined length of time due to an illness in his family.

Bruce Cassidy initially commented on the Golden Knights rearguard’s status at practice ahead of tonight’s game vs. the New York Rangers, and offered his support for Pietrangelo while he was dealing with a family matter.

While Pietrangelo is away from the team, he will be off the team’s active roster, and in order to recall Jonas Rondbjerg the team also placed Brett Howden on LTIR retroactive to November 23rd.

Pietrangelo last played on November 26th vs. the Vancouver Canucks, and has been out of the lineup since then. At this point in time we don’t have many details, and frankly we don’t really need them. At a time like this all you can do is wish Pietrangelo and his family the best of luck as they deal with whatever is going on.
