Vegas Golden Knights sniper Max Pacioretty has been deemed "unfit to play" for Thursday's Game 2 against the Chicago Blackhawks, the team announced.

Pacioretty did not accompany the team to Edmonton for the round robin as he was rehabbing a minor injury. However, he entered the bubble ahead of the round of 16 and played over 18 minutes in Game 1 versus Chicago.

The 31-year-old led the Golden Knights with 32 goals and 66 points during the regular season.

Chandler Stephenson is expected to take Pacioretty's spot on Vegas' top line alongside William Karlsson and Mark Stone.
