Golden Knights' Thompson out Saturday with undisclosed injury
Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Logan Thompson left the team's 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames due to an undisclosed injury Thursday.
Thompson has returned to Vegas and will be unavailable Saturday against the Edmonton Oilers, the team announced. Forward Reilly Smith and defenseman Alec Martinez will also miss Saturday's contest due to an undisclosed injury and personal reasons, respectively.
The netminder exited with 6:07 remaining in the third period Thursday after making a save on Trevor Lewis.
The 26-year-old was activated from injured reserve Tuesday. He dressed as the backup to Jonathan Quick later that day.
Thompson's start on Thursday was his first game action since Feb. 9 when he sustained a lower-body injury against the Minnesota Wild. He stopped 37 of 39 shots he faced from the Flames prior to being forced from the game and was credited with the victory.
In 37 contests this season, Thompson has a 21-13-3 record and a .915 save percentage.
