The Vegas Golden Knights have their triggerman back.

Max Pacioretty is in the team's lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nashville Predators, the team announced. He's missed the last 17 games with a fractured foot.

The 33-year-old sniper has two goals and an assist in two games this season. He led Vegas with 24 goals last year.

Pacioretty is skating in his usual spot on the team's top line with Chandler Stephenson and Mark Stone.

The Golden Knights have been beleaguered by injuries and COVID-19 absences this season. The team is still without Nolan Patrick, William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, and Alec Martinez, while the recently acquired Jack Eichel is recovering from neck surgery.
