Logan Thompson Out Week-to-Week With Lower-Body Injury

Logan Thompson left a 5-1 win vs. the Minnesota Wild with an injury, and he is now officially week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

The team recalled Laurent Brossoit from the AHL, and for the interim he’ll play in tandem with Adin Hill.

Thompson has been a big part of the Vegas Golden Knights this year, and the rookie goaltender has a record of 20-13-4 with a 2.66 goals against average, and a .914 save percentage through 36 games played. He represented the team at the All-Star Game in Sunrise, and is someone who likely would have been a finalist for the Calder Trophy.

The loss of Thompson is one that could be a big one, and Hill is now in a position to step up along with Brossoit who is getting another chance in the NHL. Hill is 11-5-1 with a 2.58 goals against average and a .909 save percentage in 18 starts. The most starts he’s ever made in an NHL season is 22, and that came last year with the San Jose Sharks.

Brossoit went 10-9-3 with a 2.90 goals against average and a .895 save percentage last season in 24 games with the Golden Knights. This season he’s been in the AHL, and has posted a line that includes a record of 8-11-3 with a 2.72 goals against average and a .909 save percentage.

Hopefully Thompson’s injury isn’t too bad and the duo of Hill and Brossoit can hold down the fort, but if that doesn’t happen there is always the possibility of making a trade before the March 3 trade deadline.
