Vegas Golden Knights Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Neal (illness) is expected to rejoin the lineup Monday against the Kings, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Impact: Neal's backdated placement on injured reserve prior to Friday's game against the Canucks allowed the winger to return as soon as Monday, and it appears that's just what the veteran intends to do. Official word and activation from injured reserve should cross the airwaves closer to the contest, but the demotion of both Stefan Matteau and Tomas Hyka certainly suggests he will play.
News: Matteau was demoted back to AHL Chicago on Saturday, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Impact: Matteau has a few stints at the top level under his belt at a young age, but the 24-year-old has yet to secure a full-time gig. While there is still time for him to develop, the big-bodied forward may never be anything more than a physical presence when he takes the ice in the NHL.
News: Hyka was returned to AHL Chicago on Saturday, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Impact: Hyka's demotion is believed to be the result of James Neal (illness) and the newly acquired Ryan Reaves both drawing into the lineup for the Golden Knights on Saturday. Hyka took advantage of his first taste of the NHL by scoring his first goal at the top level Friday versus the Canucks. It's unlikely this is the last we'll hear from the 24-year-old, who owns 34 points in 35 games with AHL Chicago this season.
