  • Flames' Brayden Pachal: First point in new colors

    Pachal recorded an assist and five hits in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

    The helper was Pachal's first point in nine games with the Flames. He has two points, 25 shots on net, 74 hits, 30 blocked shots, 24 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 26 outings when accounting for his time with the Golden Knights earlier in the campaign. Pachal has maintained a third-pairing spot over Dennis Gilbert and Jordan Oesterle for much of February, and there will likely be room for all of those blueliners if the Flames deal away Noah Hanifin and Chris Tanev at the deadline.

  • Flames' Brayden Pachal: Claimed by Calgary

    Pachal was claimed off waivers by the Flames on Sunday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.

    Pachal was waived by the Golden Knights on Saturday, but he'll now have an opportunity to stick in the NHL with Calgary. The 24-year-old blueliner had a goal, 42 hits and 23 blocked shots in 17 games with Vegas. Pachal will likely compete with Jordan Oesterle for a spot as the Flames' seventh defenseman.

  • Golden Knights' Brayden Pachal: Hits waivers

    Pachal was put on waivers Saturday, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Pachal has one goal, 18 shots on net, 23 blocked shots and 42 hits over 17 NHL outings this season. The 24-year-old blueliner hasn't been in the lineup since Jan. 4, so he could get some playing time with AHL Henderson if another team doesn't claim him.

  • Golden Knights' Brayden Pachal: Still stuck on outside looking in

    Pachal has played in just four games since the start of December.

    Pachal remains a stalwart among the healthy scratches for Vegas, which is still missing Shea Theodore (upper body), Ben Hutton (undisclosed), Daniil Miromanov (undisclosed) and Tobias Bjornfot (undisclosed) from the blue line. Once a couple of those defensemen return, Pachal will likely be waived, though he may stay on the roster longer than waivers-exempt Kaedan Korczak.

  • Golden Knights' Brayden Pachal: Press box regular

    Pachal has played in just two of the Golden Knights' 10 games in December.

    Aside from Shea Theodore (upper body), the Vegas defense is healthy, leaving Pachal in limbo as the team's seventh defenseman. The 24-year-old hasn't helped his own cause, failing to record a point in his last 13 contests. He has just one point, a goal, with 38 hits, 20 blocked shots, 16 shots on net and 10 PIM through 15 appearances this season.

  • Golden Knights' Brayden Pachal: Struggling to get in lineup

    Pachal has been scratched for the last four games.

    Pachal was a regular on the third pairing early in the campaign when the Golden Knights had injured defensemen, but they've been healthier of late. Nicolas Hague (lower body) is the only regular out of the lineup, but Ben Hutton has seemingly surpassed Pachal as the fill-in option. Until a spot opens up, expect Pachal to see a lot of time in the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Golden Knights' Brayden Pachal: Scores first career goal

    Pachal scored a goal on two shots, went plus-3, levied two hits and added two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    Pachal has gotten a chance to play on the third pairing with Alec Martinez (upper body) and Zach Whitecloud (upper body) on injured reserve to start the season. The goal was Pachal's first at the NHL level -- he produced two assists over 12 games across the previous two campaigns. The 24-year-old's stay with the big club may prove temporary once the Golden Knights get healthier on defense.
