Top Brett Howden News

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: On injured reserve

    Howden (upper body) was put on injured reserve Friday, according to Danny Webster of the Las Vegas Sun.

    This move can be retroactive to Tuesday, which is when Howden last played. That would make him eligible to return for Thursday's game against Boston. Howden has five goals, 13 points, 62 hits and 38 blocks in 54 contests this season. Sheldon Rempal will likely play regularly during Howden's absence.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Day-to-day with upper-body injury

    Howden's slated to miss Thursday's game against Toronto due to an upper-body injury, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. The team regards him as day-to-day beyond that.

    Howden has five goals and 13 points in 54 contests in 2023-24. With Howden unavailable Thursday, Sheldon Rempal is likely to draw into the lineup after being summoned from AHL Henderson.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Goal, assist vs. former team

    Howden notched a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.

    Howden picked up an assist on Keegan Kolesar's tally late in the second period before burying an empty-netter in the third, sealing the Vegas victory. The goal was Howden's first since Nov. 30 -- he came into Thursday's matchup with just one assist in his last 11 contests. Overall, the 25-year-old center has five goals and 13 points through 43 games this season.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Garners helper in win

    Howden posted an assist and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

    Howden set up Nicolas Roy's second-period marker, which stood as the game-winner. Their line with Keegan Kolesar was effective Saturday, serving as an energy and checking combination for the injury-riddled Golden Knights. The helper snapped a six-game point drought for Howden, who has still gone 16 contests without a goal. The 25-year-old forward is at 11 points, 37 shots on net, 35 hits, 27 PIM, 24 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating through 38 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Dishes two assists

    Howden logged a pair of assists and two hits in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Howden has three helpers over his last two games. He's seen time anywhere from the second through fourth lines, though it rarely amounts to much more than 14-15 minutes per game. The 25-year-old is at 10 points, 32 shots on net, 30 hits, 25 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 31 outings overall. He may continue to serve as the fourth-line center as long as Keegan Kolesar (undisclosed) is out.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Posts assist Sunday

    Howden logged an assist in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Senators.

    Howden set up Jonathan Marchessault's game-tying goal in the first period. It's been a fairly quiet stretch for Howden, who has three points over his last nine outings. The 25-year-old is a middle-six forward at best, but he's never one to be a leading scorer. He's managed eight points, 31 shots on net, 25 PIM, 28 hits and a minus-1 rating over 30 contests this season.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Snags helper in victory

    Howden posted an assist in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Stars.

    Howden hadn't earned an assist since Nov. 17. The 25-year-old forward has been an occasional contributor on offense, but he's also gone four games without a hit -- physicality is a noticeable part of his game. Howden has seven points, 30 shots on net, 24 hits, 23 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 26 contests. With modest production across the board, he's best left on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Knocks in goal

    Howden scored a goal on four shots, added three hits and logged two PIM in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Canucks.

    Howden tallied just 16 seconds into the third period to stretch Vegas' lead to 4-0. The 25-year-old snapped his six-game point drought after a move to the third line alongside Chandler Stephenson and Michael Amadio. If these line combinations stick, it could be good news for Howden, though his offense is likely to remain limited throughout the season. He's at four goals, two assists, 22 shots on net, 23 PIM, 24 hits and an even plus-minus rating through 22 outings.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Lights lamp Thursday

    Howden scored a shorthanded goal and added two hits in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Canadiens.

    Howden's second-period marker got the Golden Knights on the board. He's scored twice over the last three games, though this goal was his first special-teams point of the season. The 25-year-old forward is up to five points, nine shots on net, 15 hits, 21 PIM and a plus-3 rating over 15 contests. While his production is middling, he could get a second-line look until Chandler Stephenson (upper body) returns.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Finds twine Friday

    Howden scored a goal, added two PIM and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-0 win over the Sharks.

    Howden tallied midway through the third period, ending his nine-game point drought. He'd gotten on the scoresheet in his first three contests of the season. The 25-year-old has two goals, two helpers, seven shots on net, 13 hits, seven blocked shots, 21 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 13 outings. He's lined up as the fourth-line center recently with Chandler Stephenson (upper body) unavailable, though Howden had previously spent much of the season as a middle-six winger.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Scores in win

    Howden scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Jets.

    Howden tallied his first goal of the year 49 seconds into the second period, deflecting a Mark Stone feed past Laurent Brossoit to put the Knights ahead 2-1. The 25-year-old Howden has now logged a point in each of his three games this season (a goal and two assists) while missing two contests due to suspension. While he's not likely to continue at a point-per-game pace, Howden could still offer some upside in a bottom-six role, particularly in leagues that value physicality. He logged six goals, 13 points and 107 hits in 54 games last season.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Grabs helper in return

    Howden notched an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Stars.

    Howden returned from a two-game suspension and picked up his second helper of the season. The 25-year-old was on the third line Tuesday and logged 12:40 of ice time. He's at two assists, 15 PIM, two hits and one shot on goal through two appearances. Howden figures to play in a middle-six role for a majority of the campaign.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Eligible to return

    Howden has served his suspension and is eligible to play Tuesday versus the Stars.

    Howden was suspended for a hit he delivered in the season opener versus the Kraken. Jonas Rondbjerg has been playing on the fourth line with Howden suspended, but Rondbjerg may slip out of the lineup. Howden produced one assist in his only appearance of the year so far.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Suspended for two games

    Howden was suspended for two games Wednesday after delivering an illegal check to the head of Brandon Tanev (upper body) in Tuesday's game versus the Kraken.

    Howden will miss Thursday's game in San Jose and Saturday's home game versus Anaheim. The 25-year-old's absence will test the Golden Knights' depth early on, as William Carrier (upper body) also left the season opener injured. Vegas is expected to recall Jonas Rondbjerg from AHL Henderson, while Pavel Dorofeyev is also set to enter the lineup.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Will have hearing Wednesday

    Howden will have a hearing Wednesday with the NHL Department of Player Safety for his high hit on Seattle's Brandon Tanev on Tuesday.

    Howden received a match penalty at 6:02 of the third period of Tuesday's season opener as a result of the hit. Tanev left the contest with an upper-body injury. If Howden is suspended, Paul Cotter might serve in a top-six capacity Thursday versus San Jose.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Tossed from Tuesday's game

    Howden was ejected from Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Kraken after delivering a high hit to Brandon Tanev in the third period.

    Prior to receiving a match penalty, Howden set up Chandler Stephenson for the opening goal in the first period. Tanev did not return to the game, and given the match penalty, Howden could be in line for supplemental discipline. The 25-year-old forward played on the second line Tuesday, but he also filled in for some shifts on the fourth line after William Carrier (upper body) exited the contest. Howden has done alright as a depth scorer, picking up 34 points over 102 games with the Golden Knights, but he'd likely be better suited to a bottom-six role.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Re-signs with Vegas

    Howden inked a two-year, $3.8 million contract with Vegas on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Howden was a restricted free agent after completing his one-year, $1.5 million contract. He recorded six goals, 13 points, 55 PIM, 107 hits and 34 blocks in 54 outings with the Golden Knights in 2022-23.

  • Golden Knights' Brett Howden: Registers assist

    Howden logged an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Panthers in Game 5.

    Howden set up the second of Mark Stone's three goals in the championship-clinching win. Howden earned four of his 10 points this postseason over the last five games, stepping up on the biggest stage. The 25-year-old also had 30 shots on net, 63 hits and a plus-4 rating over 22 playoff outings. He's eligible for arbitration as a restricted free agent this summer.
