  • The Vegas Golden Knights traded for two forwards to add to their depth at the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline, Teddy Blueger and Ivan Barbashev. But these past two games, a different kind of “new” player has been turning heads in the Golden Knights lineup, Pavel Dorofeyev. [Vegas Golden Knights]
  • The injury to Artturi Lehkonen will be a tough one for the Colorado Avalanche to overcome.
