  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Returns to AHL Henderson

    Patera was reassigned to AHL Henderson on Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Patera may occasionally cycle to and from the taxi squad ahead of Monday's game versus the Penguins -- those paper moves will likely be dictated based on Henderson's schedule in the AHL. The 22-year-old goalie is unlikely to play in the NHL this season.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Rises to taxi squad

    Patera was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    This is more of a paper move -- Dylan Ferguson and Logan Thompson both moved to AHL Henderson on Wednesday as the Golden Knights don't play again until Monday versus the Penguins. Patera would be the odd-man out with the Silver Knights, so he'll log some practice time at the NHL level while on the taxi squad.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: On taxi squad

    Patera was called up to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    The Golden Knights are missing Robin Lehner (lower body) and Laurent Brossoit (undisclosed), testing the team's goaltending depth. Patera is the No. 3 option among healthy netminders, with Logan Thompson and Dylan Ferguson on the active roster for Tuesday's game versus the Predators.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Added to active roster

    Patera was promoted to the active roster Thursday, per CapFriendly.
