Golden Knights place Fleury and Marchess
The Vegas Golden Knights have placed goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and forward Jonathan Marche sault on the injured reserve list.
Fleury has been diagnosed with a concu sion after an apparent collision with Detroit’s Phil Esposito Jersey Anthony Manthain the Golden Knights’ lo s on Oct. 13. Vegas acquired Fleury from the Pittsburgh Penguins during June’s expansion draft.
Fleury holds a 3-1 record and a 2.48 GAA for the Golden Knights. After leading Vegas to a 3-0recordto begin the season,Fleurywas named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week.
With Fleury out, Vegas has recalled goaltender Maxime Lagace from AHL Chicago. Lagace spent last season with the Texas Stars of the AHL and posted a 11-12-2 record.
Marche sault is recovering from a lower-body injury.
Marche sault, whose 30 goalsled the Florida Panthersin 2016-17, was considered one of the more surprising names made available during the expansion draft. When the Golden Knights snagged the 26-year-old, Vegas expected him to be one of the forwards Ryan Donato Jersey to lead offensively.In four games, Marche sault has just one goal and has beenpaired with forwards Oscar Lindberg and Reilly Smith.
Forward Alex Tuch has been recalled from the Chicago Wolves in a corresponding move.
It’s beginning to seem that the ‘injury bug’ has started to plague the Golden Knights, as forward Erik Haula was also placed on IR Matt Grzelcyk Jersey on Oct. 14.While the trio of Haula, Fleury, and Marche sault are expected to mi s at least the next week,Vegaswill have to rely on a few newcomers to bail them out.
