Golden Knights recall Reid Duke, reassign Daniel Carr to Chicago Wolves
The original Knight gets his first shot with the big club.
The Golden Knights have recalled forward Reid Duke and reassigned forward Daniel Carr to the AHL’s Chicago Wolves.
Originally drafted by Minnesota in the sixth round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Duke was the first player to sign with the Golden Knights back in March, 2017. He spent 14 games with the Wolves last season but failed to record a point.
However, the 22-year-old has scored six goals and 13 points in 22 games with Chicago this season and could make his NHL debut Thursday night against the Blackhawks, likely replacing Carr on the third line. That will depend on Max Pacioretty’s availability and Oscar Lindberg’s status, though, since Lindberg played well last night against the Capitals, recording his first two points of the season.
Carr, 27, notched one goal in six games with Vegas after leading the AHL in scoring prior to his recall. He is now tied with Brooks Macek with 22 points, good for second on the Wolves behind Brandon Pirri (26). Carr, who helped improve the performance of the Knights’ struggling third line in his short stint with Vegas, played four seasons with Montreal before signing with Vegas this summer.
