Per old KOI friend Danny Webster, Eichel is skating on a line with Reilly Smith and Nic Roy.

Eichel last appeared in a game on December 9 vs. the Philadelphia Flyers, and he logged 20:15 in a win. This season he has posted a line of 13-16-29 in 27 games, and he’s averaging 18:49 a game.
The Golden Knights will gladly welcome him back, as the team went 6-4-1 with 13 points in 11 games with him gone, which equates to a .591 points percentage which is 14th in the league over the stretch of December 10 to January 4.
Of note, Paul Cotter is skating in practice too, but he’s still listed on IR. Jonathan Marchessault also skated in a non-contact jersey. Byron Froese and Jonas Rondbjerg were assigned to AHL Henderson, so it is possible more moves are coming before Cotter is activated.
