Cody Eakin posted an empty-net goal with a plus-1 rating in Game 6 at San Jose on Sunday night.
Eakin really made his presence felt. Not only did he cap off the team's scoring in their series-clinching victory, he posted a blocked shot and four hits over 12:59 of ice time. The only thing Eakin might be looking to improve is his work in the faceoff circle, as he won just four of his nine chances at the dot. He and his teammates will await the winner of the Winnipeg-Nashville series. May 6 - 10:39 PM

Cody Eakin had a goal and an assist Sunday in the Golden Knights 4-2 win.

Eakin broke out of a six game pointless streak and has three goals and nine points this season. He has been playing on the third line of late after starting the season as a top-six forward. "When we made the switch, I talked to him a little bit about it and he said he’s happy where he’s at," Knights coach Gerard Gallant said prior to the game. "He’ll score his share of goals, but he takes pride in playing real good defensive hockey, and that’s what he is."

Cody Eakin scored a goal in a 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

Nate Schmidt made a nice play to force the turnover before setting up Cody Eakin for the one-timer that just got through Rask. Eakin impressively has two goals and seven points in 12 games this season. The Eakin, Tuch, and Lindberg line has been really good of late and are definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Cody Eakin scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Eakin's goal at the 3:44 mark of the first period was the first tally at Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. Eakin will be looking to bounce back after a terrible 2016-17 regular season with the Dallas Stars. Last year, he had just three goals and 12 points in 60 games. In the previous three years, he scored between 35 and 40 points.

He picked up just three goals and 12 points in 60 games. Eakin should be able to reach the 30-point mark in the Golden Knights' first season.

Cody Eakin has been snagged by the Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

Eakin spent the last five seasons with the Dallas Stars. In 60 games with the Stars last year, he posted just 12 points, but he is capable of generating 35-40 points like he did in each of his previous three seasons. Eakin plays a solid two-way game and Vegas GM George McPhee was in charge in Washington when the team drafted him.

Cody Eakin was left unprotected by the Dallas Stars ahead of the expansion draft.

Eakin is coming off a down season where he was limited to three goals and 12 points in 60 games. He might bounce back and be a solid two-way center next season, but given the 2016-17 campaign he had, the Golden Knights might end up passing on his $3.85 million cap hit through 2019-20. That being said, he does have a connection with Golden Knights GM George McPhee as he was the Capitals' general manager when Washington drafted him.

Cody Eakin or Antoine Roussel could end up being available for the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

Eakin has proven to be a valuable center for the Stars, while playing up and down the lineup, so that could make Roussel the odd-man out even though he has some versatility as well. It's also possible that Dallas could shop both players and protect the one they don't trade.
