The Golden Knights have recalled Nicolas Roy from Chicago (AHL).

Cody Eakin is expected to miss at least a couple of weeks with an upper-body injury, so Roy comes back up from the AHL. He has split his first two months between the two leagues, compiling six points (2G / 4A) in 11 AHL games and three points (1G / 2A) in six NHL contests. He is expected to centre the fourth line with Tomas Nosek and Ryan Reaves on his wings on Monday.

The Golden Knights have recalled Nic Roy from Chicago (AHL).

Roy returns to the NHL because Vegas starts a four-game road-trip on Tuesday but also because Alex Tuch was hurt in their last game. Roy, who scored a goal in his season debut (Oct.27), would likely take Tuch's spot in the lineup if he can't play in Columbus. During his time in the AHL, the 22-year-old centre has picked up just one assist in seven games.

The Golden Knights have assigned Nicolas Roy to Chicago (AHL).

Roy scored his first career goal on Sunday but gets sent back to the AHL on Monday. The Golden Knights are off until Thursday, so this could simply be a paper move but Alex Tuch is also nearing a return to the lineup so Roy could be clearing a roster spot for him to be activated.

The Golden Knights acquired Nicolas Roy and 2021 conditional fifth-round pick from the Hurricanes for Erik Haula.

Roy was selected in the fourth-round (No.96 overall) in the 2015 NHL draft. Since then, Roy has appeared in just seven career NHL games but is coming off of a 17-goal, 19-assist (36 points) season with Charlotte (AHL). Roy will likely start in Chicago (AHL) given the depth of the Golden Knights lineup.
