Injury List Grows For The Vegas Golden Knights

from Justin Emerson of the Las Vegas Sun,

It appears the Golden Knights are preparing for the worst when it comes to the health of center Erik Haula.

Haula was placed on injured reserve Tuesday night, according to the team’s website, and coach Gerard Gallant confirmed today that Haula he will be out “month-to-month.”

Gallant also said center Paul Stastny, who played in three games this year before going on IR, is “not close” to returning.

“Injuries are part of the game. Every team goes through them, so we can’t use them as an excuse,” Gallant said. “If we’re going to win, everybody has to step up. That’s the way it is. When guys go down, people have to step up and take a bigger role.”

Gallant said he wasn’t sure if either player would require surgery.
