Shea Theodore scored a goal with a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 3-0 win against the Predators.
Theodore has been red hot lately, picking up three goals with eight points and a plus-6 rating over his past seven outings. The hot streak comes on the heels of an eight-game scoreless skid, so don't get crazy and drop someone with more staying power. However, if you need a quick jolt of offense and have the roster flexibility, he's not a bad addition in deeper pools while boiling hot. Jan 3 - 2:53 AM

Shea Theodore was scratched Saturday as coach Gerard Gallant wanted him to watch and learn.

Theodore made a bad turnover Friday that cost the Golden Knights a goal. "He’s not sitting out because of one turnover," Gallant said before Saturday's tilt. "He’s a young player, and we want him to get better defensively. Over the last few games, there’s been a few mistakes. Our guys are going to make mistakes and we’re going to live with those. We just want him to get better, and that’s part of building a young player." Theodore has a goal and five points in 14 games this season and we do not know when he will make his next appearance in the lineup.

Shea Theodore will make his season debut with Vegas on Tuesday night.

Vegas has summoned Shea Theodore from the minors.

Theodore, who has racked up 11 points in eight games for the AHL's Chicago Wolves this year, is expected to join the Golden Knights for Monday's match against the New York Islanders. Griffin Reinhart was assigned to the minors after he cleared waivers.
Mon, Oct 30, 2017 12:39:00 PM

It's believed that Vegas will bring up Shea Theodore, according to a report from TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Jason Garrison has been assigned to the minors and Griffin Reinhart was waived on Sunday, so it's believed the Golden Knights will summon Theodore from the minors. He has five goals and 11 points in eight matches this campaign. Theodore is worthy of fantasy consideration if starts playing regularly for Vegas.

Shea Theodore scored in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Theodore is a talented young defenseman that was lost in the shuffle in Anaheim, but he's likely to get a solid opportunity to play on an expansion team. The 22-year-old had two goals and nine points in 34 games with the Ducks last season. Theodore added five goals and 15 assists in 26 AHL games.

Shea Theodore is trying to do all he can to make Vegas' roster.

Theodore picked up one assist and six shots in 23:12 of ice time in Sunday's 9-4 preseason win against Vancouver. He quarterbacked the power play and played 8:04 with the man advantage. Theodore doesn't have to clear waivers to be sent to the minors, which is weighing on his mind, but he thinks he has what it takes to stay with the Golden Knights. "I'm here to play the best hockey I can and make the team," Theodore said. "In the back of my head, I know about the waiver exempt option, but you have to come in with a glass half-full mindset. I'm here to make the team and do what I can to stick on the blue line. That's all I can do. I'm not shy to the business side of it. I dealt with that for two years in Anaheim going between (the Ducks and AHL). But when I'm playing well, I know can play against anyone."
Wed, Sep 20, 2017 06:51:00 PM

Shea Theodore believes he is ready to be a full-time NHLer with the Golden Knights.

"It's definitely a lot about confidence. I know I saw that last year when I was playing consistently with Anaheim, I felt like that's when I was playing my best, I was playing well and playing a lot of minutes," Theodore said. "I'm going to be coming into camp in the best shape I can and try to secure a spot with Vegas." With the Ducks, he spent the last few seasons moving between the AHL and the NHL. He has five goals and 17 points in 53 career big-league appearances. Theodore has sleeper potential in 2017-18 if he becomes Vegas' power-play quarterback and he could be a top-four blueliner.

The Vegas Golden Knights have acquired Shea Theodore from the Anaheim Ducks.

Anaheim handed Theodore to Vegas so that the Golden Knights would agree to take Stoner in the expansion draft and stay away from Sami Vatanen and Josh Manson. Theodore, 21, had two goals and nine points in 34 games with Anaheim in 2016-17. He also had five goals and 20 points in 26 AHL contests. He was the Ducks' 26th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
