Brayden McNabb is optimistic about the Vegas Golden Knights' chances in their expansion season.
McNabb was Vegas' choice from Los Angeles in the expansion draft. "I think we’re going to be competitive," McNabb said. "There are a lot of good players we selected and some young guys too. We’ve got great goaltending, so it starts there. So it’ll be fun." Vegas' roster is better than your typical expansion team, but it still doesn't look particularly impressive. Vegas might be able to surprise people, but at the end of the day the Golden Knights shouldn't be projected to compete for a playoff spot in their first season. Jun 22 - 9:40 AM

Brayden McNabb (collarbone) has been activated from the injured reserve list.

Brayden McNabb has received medical clearance to return from a broken collarbone.

"I don't think the (Christmas) break was necessarily in his favor," Darryl Sutter said. "He wants some full contact practices, so today would be the only one. He's available." McNabb could be back in the lineup on Wednesday if he feels he is back up to game shape.

Brayden McNabb (collarbone) practiced with the Kings Saturday for the first time since his injury on October 29.

The LA Kings have placed Brayden McNabb (arm) on I/R on Sunday.

Coach Darryl Sutter noted that McNabb had his arm in a sling and was awaiting more tests (x-rays) to find out just what's going on. Until then, consider McNabb week-to-week.

Coach Darryl Sutter gave a bit of detail on what's going on with Brayden McNabb.

McNabb has an arm in a sling, but still listed with an upper body injury and is considered day-to-day. Slings of course do not necessarily mean there's a major injury, but they are a bit foreboding. We'll keep you posted as his status progresses.

Brayden McNabb suffered an upper body injury in the third period and did not return.

McNabb will be re-evaluated on Sunday so consider him day-to-day for now. He fell awkwardly into the boards as the Blues Colton Parayko fell on top of him. "We need him back. Brayden’s a big part of this team," Drew Doughty said to the LA Kings Insider after the game. "He doesn’t get talked about enough. He’s played unbelievable so far this season, and playing with him has made it easy on me, so hopefully he can come back. I didn’t see the play happen, but hopefully he’s OK to comeback because we’re going to need him really bad." Stay tuned.

Brayden McNabb scored his second of the season Saturday.

McNabb has already tied his career high in goals, as he had two last season and in the previous season. McNabb is known for his penchant for getting penalties and this season has been no different as he has 11 over the last two games. Look for 25 points this season with 100 penalty minutes and get him if that will help you.

Brayden McNabb potted his first goal of the 2016-17 season on Friday night in a 4-2 loss to Philadelphia.

He scored the team's second goal of the match early in the third period to make it 4-2, but that was as close as the Kings would come to cutting into the Flyers' lead. It was the sixth goal of McNabb's NHL career. He had 14 points in 81 matches last year.
