Golden Knights get even MORE terrible news

Man, Vegas is in shambles right now.


The Vegas Golden Knights have gone from one of professional sports best feel-good type stories to a team known for shrewd moves that blow up in their faces over the course of their short five year history. 

And unfortunately for them, they got another piece of terrible news. Of course, this is already on top of the fact that goaltender Robin Lehner is going to miss the entire upcoming season after undergoing hip surgery, which was preceded by having to trade goal scoring forward and veteran leader Max Pacioretty to the Carolina Hurricanes for literally nothing in return.

According to a report, forward Nolan Patrick will also be joining Lehner on the sidelines this season. For Patrick, it's an upper body injury that is forcing him out of the lineup. 

Patrick, who was the 2nd overall NHL draft selection in 2017 when originally taken by the Philadelphia Flyers, has had more than his fair share of injury troubles in the past. He missed the entire 2019-20 season with a migraine disorder, and also was limited to just 25 games last season, his first with Vegas.
