The Golden Knights have added a bit of cap flexibility as CapFriendly reports that defenseman Nicolas Hague and center Brett Howden have been transferred to LTIR. Both players were injured last month and the placements have been dated accordingly – Hague to March 15 and Howden to March 21. With the designations, both players have to miss at least 10 games and 24 days from the placement which means Hague is pretty close to being eligible to return already.
Howden (upper body) was moved to long-term injured reserve Friday, per CapFriendly. Howden will miss his sixth straight game Saturday, and he won't be eligible to return until April 20 at the earliest. He's not considered close to returning -- the Golden Knights moved him to LTIR to obtain a bit more cap flexibility.
Howden (upper body) is not expected to return in the near term, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Head coach Pete DeBoer reported Tuesday that none of the Golden Knights' injured players are close to returning. Howden was stretched off the ice March 24 versus the Predators, and can likely be considered out indefinitely going forward.

The Vegas Golden Knights have been ravaged by injury this season and now find themselves at risk of missing the playoffs entirely.

Not anymore, as Pacioretty suffered a setback according to head coach Peter DeBoer, who spoke with reporters including Jesse Granger of The Athletic.
Howden (upper body) is expected to be out for a while after being stretched off the ice against the Predators on Thursday, per NHL.com. While Howden was released from the hospital and appears to have avoided any neck or spinal damage, the 23-year-old center is still set to miss a chunk of time. In his last five outings, the Calgary native registered one goal, three shots and 10 hits while averaging 10:38 of ice time. Pavel Dorofeyev figures to get an extended look at the NHL level with Howden sidelined.
A game between the Nashville Predators and Vegas Golden Knights became secondary Thursday night when Vegas' Brett Howden was taken off the ice on a stretcher after going headfirst into the boards after what appeared to be an inadvertent collision with Filip Forsberg with 3 minutes, 31 seconds left in the first period.
Howden (undisclosed) was stretchered off the ice in the first period of Thursday's game versus the Predators, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Howden fell awkwardly and was then shoved into the boards by Filip Forsberg. It's unclear what Howden hurt on the play, and the Golden Knights typically don't reveal much about injuries. There should be an update on the 23-year-old's status prior to Saturday's game versus the Blackhawks.
Howden (undisclosed) has full movement and has not suffered a neck or spine injury, per head coach Pete DeBoer. The Golden Knights will know more about the 23-year-old's status Friday after further tests are conducted at the hospital. Howden left Thursday's game after an awkward crash into the boards in the first period.
Howden scored a goal and added two hits in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Panthers. Howden missed seven games with an upper-body injury, but he made an impact with the Golden Knights' first goal in his return. The 23-year-old saw 13:20 of ice time, indicating he's back in his usual bottom-six role, though he could move up the lineup if Jack Eichel (upper body) misses time. Howden has nine goals, 20 points, 37 shots on net, 54 hits and a plus-8 rating through 43 appearances this season.
