Neal (illness) is questionable for Monday’s game in Los Angeles.

Neal has missed the last three games with an illness, but head coach Gerard Gallant said that Neal has had a couple of good skates so they’ll see where he’s at on Monday. Neal has been a horse for the Golden Knights this season, picking up 24 goals and 15 assists (39 points) in 58 games.

Neal (hand) will play in the Golden Knights’ season opener.

Despite being on the non-roster injury list, Neal will play in the season opener after participating in the last few practices. Neal will be expected to carry the Golden Knigts offence for much of the season and he will start on a line with Cody Eakin and David Perron.

The Golden Knights have placed James Neal on the injured-non roster list.

Neal sat out of the preseason while rehabbing a broken hand that he suffered during the Western Conference Final last season and will miss the start of the regular season. However, Neal was skating on the Golden Knights’ second line during Tuesday’s practice, so that suggests that he might not be too far off. Vegas is going to struggle to find offence in their inaugural season and Neal’s health will be imperative if they’re going to have any success.
