Eakin is week-to-week with an upper-body injury.

Eakin was hurt in last Friday's game vs. the Coyotes on a hit from forward Brad Richardson and did not return. Head coach Gerard Gallant told reporters that Eakin will miss at least a couple of weeks and Nicolas Roy was called-up from Chicago (AHL) and will take Eakin's place in the lineup. Cody Glass will shift back to centre on the third line to fill the hole left by Eakin's absence.

Head coach Gerard Gallant said that Eakin is “doing well” but probably won’t play Tuesday vs. the Bruins. Vegas plays four games next week, so monitor Eakin’s status heading towards Thursday’s game in Arizona and into their back-to-back over the weekend.

Eakin (undisclosed) will not play in the Golden Knights season opener.

Eakin was left off of IR on Tuesday but still won’t be available for Wednesday’s season opener vs. the Sharks. The early-season injury has opened the door for Cody Glass to centre the Golden Knights second line between Max Pacioretty and Mark Stone. Eakin remains day-to-day.

The Golden Knights have placed Cody Eakin (lower-body) on IR.

Eakin has missed the last week of training camp with a lower-body injury and has been moved to injured reserve to create an open roster spot for a healthy skater. With Eakin expected to miss the start of the season, Ryan Carpenter or Oscar Lindberg will centre the Golden Knights’ third line.

Eakin is eligible to return from his four-game suspension on Thursday.

Eakin was suspended for four games for his hit on Henrik Lundqvist, but is set to return to the lineup tonight. Eakin has had a tough season, collecting just a single assist in 14 games. Jason Dickinson was sent back to Texas (AHL) to make room for Eakin.

Eakin will miss six weeks with a knee injury.

Eakin suffered a knee injury in Stars’ practice last Friday and will miss the first month of the regular season. Injuries are starting to mount for Dallas, but Eakin is expected to miss the most amount of time. Look for Mattias Janmark to shift to centre on their third line while Eakin is out.
