  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Tallies in Sunday's win

    Cotter scored a goal on three shots and added four hits in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Cotter has started to bounce back lately with two goals and an assist over his last five games. With the Golden Knights' top six healthy, he's been stuck in a bottom-six role, so his upside is still limited. The 23-year-old has 13 goals, five assists, 72 shots on net, 156 hits and a minus-8 rating through 51 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Garners assist in win

    Cotter notched an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.

    Cotter has started to get his offense going again with a goal and an assist over his last three games. The 23-year-old forward is up to 12 tallies, five helpers, 67 shots on net, 149 hits and a minus-7 rating through 49 contests overall. He should have a steady place in the lineup while the Golden Knights are missing forwards, but he's unlikely to see more than a fourth-line role.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Deposits goal in win

    Cotter scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Hurricanes.

    Cotter snapped an eight-game point drought with the tally. The 23-year-old has seen time all over the lineup this season -- he was on the first line before Ivan Barbashev took that spot following his move from St. Louis. Cotter worked on the third line Saturday, and that's likely the best spot for his high-energy style. He has 12 goals, four helpers, 147 hits, 65 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 47 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Stays warm with helper

    Cotter notched an assist and three hits in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Lightning.

    Cotter's goal streak ended at three games, but he has points in four straight. The 23-year-old has benefited from seeing top-line usage at even strength, giving him some exposure to talented linemates. For the season, the Michigan native has 11 goals, four helpers, 54 shots on net, 124 hits and a minus-3 rating in 38 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Nets equalizer Thursday

    Cotter scored a goal on three shots and added five hits in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Sharks.

    Cotter was limited to 13:12 of ice time, as the Golden Knights spent nearly a quarter of the game on the power play, which is a situation he's not featured in. This was his third straight game with a goal, and he's up to 11 tallies and three assists through 37 outings overall. The 23-year-old should continue to have some appeal in deep fantasy formats as long as he's alongside Jack Eichel on the top line.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Reaches 10-goal mark

    Cotter scored a goal and added two hits in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Ducks.

    Cotter tallied just 2:08 into the game. The goal was his 10th of the season and his sixth in 14 outings since he returned from an upper-body injury. The 23-year-old forward has added three helpers, 51 shots on net, 116 hits and a minus-4 rating through 36 appearances this season. As long as he's playing on the top line with Jack Eichel, Cotter could have some sneaky value in deep fantasy formats.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Contributes goal Thursday

    Cotter scored a goal, logged two hits and went plus-3 in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild.

    Cotter put the Golden Knights ahead 3-1 in the second period. He'd previously been credited with another goal, but that one was later changed to Alex Pietrangelo. The tally snapped Cotter's five-game point drought. The 23-year-old has seen some top-six minutes at even strength lately despite the slump. He's up to nine goals, 12 points, 50 shots on net, 114 hits and a minus-3 rating through 35 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Scores twice in win

    Cotter scored two goals on five shots and added three hits in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Capitals.

    Cotter had the Golden Knights' last two goals of the game. The 23-year-old hasn't been the most consistent of forwards, but he's managed four goals and an assist over his last seven contests since returning from an upper-body injury. He's produced eight tallies, three helpers, 43 shots on net, 96 hits and a minus-2 rating through 29 outings overall while mainly playing in a bottom-six role.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Tickles twine Saturday

    Cotter scored a goal and added six hits in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.

    Cotter played on a new-look third line alongside Byron Froese and Phil Kessel. The trio combined on the Golden Knights' second tally, which was Cotter's third point in the last four games since he returned from an upper-body injury. The 23-year-old forward is up to six tallies, nine points, 33 shots on net, 86 hits and a minus-1 rating through 276 appearances this season.

  • Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Grabs pair of points in return

    Cotter scored a goal on three shots, added an assist and doled out four hits in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

    Cotter's return from an eight-game absence was overshadowed by the Golden Knights welcoming Jack Eichel (three points Thursday) back. Still, Cotter's instant chemistry with William Karlsson and Phil Kessel on the third line was a big plus for a team that's had to lean heavily on its top six. The 23-year-old Cotter is up to five tallies, three assists, 32 shots on net, 70 hits and a plus-1 rating through 23 contests this season. He should have a secure place in the lineup while Vegas continues to miss Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) and Brett Howden (lower body).
