    News

    Marchessault (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against Buffalo, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    Impact

    The Golden Knights and fantasy owners will both be happy to have Marchessault back in their lineups Tuesday, as he was on a roll prior to missing five games with a lower-body issue, racking up six goals and nine points in his last nine games. The 29-year-old will skate on Vegas' first line and second power-play unit against the Sabres.

    Marchessault (lower body) skated on the top line during Monday's practice, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

    Impact

    Marchessault has often skated on the top line during practice lately, but he's missed the last five games with a nagging injury. Coach Gerard Gallant said the team will make a decision on his status for Tuesday's matchup versus the Sabres following morning skate. Marchessault has racked up 15 goals and 16 assists over 43 contests this year.

    Marchessault (lower body) won't be in the lineup Saturday against Columbus, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

    Impact

    It's Marchessault's fifth missed contest with a lower-body injury, but a return is on the horizon after he took part in the team's morning skate. While no official word has been given, it appears likely that Marchessault will return on the Golden Knights' upcoming road trip, beginning in Buffalo on Tuesday.

    News

    Marchessault (lower body) is officially deemed a game-time decision but isn't expected to dress for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    Impact

    Marchessault took the ice for morning skate Saturday, a sign that he's on the right path toward a return to action. Unfortunately, it seems more likely he will have a chance to return Tuesday versus the Sabres than against the Blue Jackets during the evening. Keegan Kolesar is in line to make his NHL debut if both Marchessault and Cody Glass (lower body) can't go.

    News

    Marchessault (lower body) was spotted on the ice ahead of Saturday's morning skate, David Schoen of RJ Sports reports.

    Impact

    This is a step in the right direction for Marchessault, though his status for Saturday's game against Columbus is still up in the air. Expect another update on the productive winger prior to puck drop.
