Vegas Golden Knights Recall Pavel Dorofeyev from Henderson Silver Knights

The Vegas Golden Knights have recalled prospect Pavel Dorofeyev from the Henderson Silver Knights.

Dorofeyev was selected 79th overall during the 2019 NHL Draft and is having a nice season in the AHL. The 21-year-old winger has a line of 23-18-41 in 53 games played, and he leads the team in goals, points, and is second in overall assists. Last year was Dorofeyev’s first in the AHL, and in 24 games he tallied 9 goals, 4 assists, and 13 points in the regular season, and 2 goals in 5 playoff games for the Silver Knights.

Dorofeyev made his NHL debut on October 12, 2021 for the Golden Knights, but only skated 4:07 over the course of 5 shifts. There’s a very good chance he’ll log more ice time if he gets into a game this time around, because Vegas is at a point where many roster regulars are out of the lineup. The Golden Knights’ next game is on Wednesday against the Seattle Kraken, and between now and then we should get a better idea of where Dorofeyev will be slotted in the lineup.
