Vegas Golden Knights Player News: All Positions

News: Thompson has signed an entry-level contract with the Golden Knights, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Thompson played last season in the ECHL with the South Carolina, where he notched a .929 save percentage. His deal is for two years.
News: Krebs will take part in the Golden Knights' Phase 3 training camp.
Impact: Krebs is coming off another fantastic junior season, as he racked up 60 points in 38 appearances with WHL Winnipeg. Selected by the club with the 17th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, the 19-year-old center could be in line for a regular spot on the 23-man roster heading into the 2020-21 campaign. In addition to Krebs, the organization called in forwards Gage Quinney, Keegan Kolesar, Reid Duke, and Patrick Brown, defensemen Nicolas Hague, Jake Bischoff, Jimmy Schuldt and Dylan Coghlan and netminder Oscar Dansk.
News: Patera signed a three-year, entry-level deal with Vegas on Tuesday.
Impact: Patera went 24-12-4 in 41 appearances with WHL Brandon, along with a 2.55 GAA and .921 save percentage. Selected by the club in the sixth round of the 2017 NHL Draft, the 21-year-old netminder figures to make the jump to the professional ranks and could be suiting up for the newly minted AHL Henderson Silver Knights.
News: Glass will not be available to play this summer when play resumes, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Glass underwent surgery in March for his right knee and was deemed to miss the remainder of the season. It appears event with play being suspended for over three months that he will not be able to return at any point this season. Glass will be an important part of Vegas' future, so he will focus on getting back fully healthy next season.
News: Reaves signed a two-year, $3.5 million contract extension with Vegas on Monday.
Impact: Reaves was set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason but instead has tied himself to Vegas for another two years. The 33-year-old managed eight goals and seven helpers in 71 outings while averaging 10:09 of ice time this season. The veteran winger won't ever be confused for an offensive powerhouse -- he's reached the 20-point mark just once in his 10-year NHL career -- yet he provides grit and experience in a bottom-six role, having dished out over 300 hits in each of his last two campaigns.
News: Dansk signed a one-year, $700,000 contract extension with the Golden Knights on Thursday.
Impact: Dansk has only appeared in one game with the big club this campaign, and it was a disaster with him surrendering six goals on 37 shots en route to a blowout loss to the Flyers on Oct. 21. The 2012 second-round pick has, however, been decent in the minors, compiling an 18-12-4 record while posting a 2.57 GAA and .908 save percentage in 35 appearances with AHL Chicago. The 26-year-old Swede will likely once again spend most, if not all, of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors.
News: Corcoran penned a three-year, entry-level deal with Vegas on Monday.
Impact: In 62 outings for OHL Windsor this season, Corcoran tallied 19 goals and 35 helpers. Selected by the Golden Knights in the fifth round of the 2018 NHL Draft, the 19-year-old has one year of junior eligibility remaining but could make a case for jumping to the professional ranks with AHL Henderson during training camp ahead of 2020-21.
News: According to general manager Kelly McCrimmon, Stephenson (undisclosed) will be available to play if and when the NHL resumes its season, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Stephenson missed Vegas' last game prior to the NHL's suspension of play, but he's had plenty of time to recover over the past two-plus months. The former Capital, who's picked up 11 goals and 26 points this campaign, will return to a middle-six role if and when the NHL resumes its season.
News: Per general manager Kelly McCrimmon, Pacioretty (lower body) will be ready to rock if and when the NHL returns to play, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Pacioretty suffered a lower-body injury in the Golden Knights' final contest prior to the stoppage, but the break has evidently afforded him enough time to make a full recovery. The 31-year-old winger has been one of Vegas' best players this season, racking up 32 goals and 66 points in 71 games, so it goes without saying that the team will be happy to have him available if and when the NHL resumes its season.
News: According to general manager Kelly McCrimmon, Stone (lower body) will be healthy enough to play if and when the NHL resumes its season, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Stone missed the Golden Knights' last five games prior to the league suspending play. At that point he was considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, so the pause couldn't have come at a better time for him. The 28-year-old winger has had a fantastic year, racking up 21 goals and 63 points in just 65 games. He'll resume his duties on Vegas' top line and first power-play unit if and when the NHL resumes its season.
News: Tuch (lower body) is healthy and available to play, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Tuch has used the extra time off to get fully fit. Prior to getting hurt, the winger managed two goals and two helpers in his previous seven outings. The Syracuse native figures to slot back into a third-line role and could be a solid value play in DFS contests once play resumes.
News: Dugan will forego his remaining years of NCAA eligibility to sign with Vegas, the team announced Monday.
Impact: Dugan led the NCAA with 52 points in 34 games for Providence this season and will now make the jump to the professional ranks. The winger was drafted by the Golden Knights in the fifth round of the 2017 NHL Draft. With the start of the AHL 2020-21 season up in the air, the Rochester, New York native could get an immediate shot with the 23-man roster heading into next year.
News: Roy inked a two-year, $1.5 million contract extension with Vegas on Wednesday.
Impact: Roy saw action in 28 games for the Golden Knights this season prior to the league going on hiatus, in which he notched five goals, five helpers and 42 shots. The center frequently moved between leagues this year in order to help the team with a cap crunch but should be a full-time NHL contributor heading into the 2020-21 campaign.
News: Pacioretty (lower body) indicated Saturday that he's working to be ready to play when the NHL season resumes, NHL.com reports.
Impact: The Golden Knights announced March 11 that Pacioretty was week-to-week with a lower-body injury suffered in the team's previous game. One day later, the NHL suspended its season, so the 31-year-old winger has yet to miss any game action because of the injury. Though Pacioretty didn't specify where he stands in his recovery at this point, he'll likely be at or near full health when the Knights are cleared to train again. The NHL has yet to pinpoint a target date for the season to resume, so Pacioretty will presumably continue to work out on his own for at least a few more weeks.
