Player Notes

  • Tallies in Game 1 loss
    Duclair scored a goal in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 1.

    Advice: Duclair's tally late in the second period tied the game at 2-2, but the Panthers couldn't sustain that momentum into the third. The winger has scored in consecutive contests and now has four goals this postseason. He's added six helpers, 33 shots on net, 14 hits and a minus-3 rating through 16 appearances. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Sets up power-play marker
    Stephenson logged a power-play assist, two hits and 12 PIM in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Panthers in Game 1.

    Advice: Stephenson set up Jonathan Marchessault's first-period marker. This was Stephenson's second point over his last five games -- the forward has slowed down a bit while playing in a third-line role of late. He's up to 15 points (four on the power play), 24 shots on net, 27 hits, 30 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 18 playoff contests. Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Fills empty cage
    Smith scored an empty-net goal on the power play and added three shots on goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Panthers in Game 1.

    Advice: Smith put the icing on the Golden Knights' series-opening win, snapping his six-game goal drought. He'd picked up three helpers over his last three contests. The winger continues to play a key middle-six role for Vegas, which has seen him earn 12 points with 41 shots on net, 25 hits and a plus-6 rating through 18 playoff outings. Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Finds twine again
    Marchessault scored a power-play goal on three shots and added three hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Panthers in Game 1.

    Advice: Marchessault has scored all 10 of his playoff goals this spring in the last 11 contests. He tied the game at 1-1 late in the first period to give the Golden Knights some momentum after a sluggish start. The winger continues to be a leader on offense with 18 points in as many contests, and he's added 65 shots on net, 49 hits and a plus-14 rating while playing on the top line. Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Pots goal Saturday
    Stone scored a goal on seven shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Panthers in Game 1.

    Advice: Stone picked off a pass and went the other way for the Golden Knights' fourth tally. He was held off the scoresheet in his previous four appearances, so it's a positive to see him get going early in the Stanley Cup Finals. The captain has racked up seven goals, 16 points, 40 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 18 playoff outings. Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Clear for 2023-24
    Nichushkin (personal) will not be investigated by the NHL and is eligible to play in 2023-24, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: An incident involving police occurred in Seattle during the Avalanche's first-round series, and it caused Nichushkin to be away from the team. The winger was not charged nor considered criminally liable during the situation. He should be a top-six option for the Avalanche next year, especially with Gabriel Landeskog (knee) expected to miss a second full campaign. Yesterday, 4:03 pm
  • Has hip resurfacing
    Kane underwent hip resurfacing Thursday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Advice: Kane is expected to need four-to-six months to recover from the procedure, so his availability for the start of the 2023-24 campaign is very questionable. He recorded 21 goals and 57 points in 73 contests between Chicago and the Rangers in 2022-23 and contributed another goal and six points in seven playoff outings this year. Kane has completed his eight-year, $84 million contract and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Thursday, 12:44 pm
  • Supplies two points Monday
    Kolesar had a goal and an assist in Vegas' 6-0 win over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Kolesar ended his 13-game goal drought when he beat Jake Oettinger late in the first period to push the Golden Knights' lead to 3-0. Kolesar is up to two markers and five points in 17 playoff outings this year. That offensive pace is up from his regular-season finish of 18 points (eight tallies) in 74 contests. The 26-year-old has also recorded 61 hits in the postseason, including a team-high eight in Game 6. Monday, 8:15 pm
  • Has two-point game
    Amadio provided a goal and an assist in Vegas' 6-0 victory over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Amadio was held off the scoresheet over his last four appearances and earned his first multi-point contest since April 22. He's up to three goals and seven points in 11 playoff outings this year. That's a step up from the regular season, during which he recorded 16 goals and 27 points in 67 games. The 27-year-old entered Monday's action averaging just 12:17 of ice time in the postseason, and he was a healthy scratch for six straight games from May 12-25, so even though Amadio has been productive, his limited role will make it difficult for him to sustain his offensive pace.
