Injury: Lower Body (Knee)
Injured on: 11/6/18
12/14 – LVRJ reports that Haula had surgery in Mid-November. McPhee said it was not an ACL surgery and that the timetable for return is fuzzy because the injury is not common in the NHL.
12/3 – “He got back yesterday. I saw him this morning walking in on crutches. He’s going to be a while. I don’t know how long, I have no idea.” Gallant was then asked if he expects Haula back at some point this season and he said, “This year? Oh I wouldn’t rule that out. I know it’s not going to be for the next two months for sure but after that I don’t know. But I know he started rehab last week and everything’s going well.”
11/14 – Gallant declared Haula as “month-to-month.”
11/13 – Haula was placed on IR. TSN’s Bob McKenzie tweeted out some further details surrounding the injury.
By the sounds of it, Erik Haula’s injury is complicated/complex and VGK won’t know full extent of his absence until second and third medical opinions, which he is in process of getting. More likely to be month-to-month than week-to-week but nothing known for sure at this moment.

11/12 – Assistant Coach Mike Kelly said there is no update on Haula and that more information is expected Wednesday.
11/8 – Haula was shown with crutches on the postgame show following the Golden Knights win in Ottawa.
11/7 – Gallant said Haula will stay with the team for the rest of the road trip, but has been ruled out for each of the three games.
11/6 – Haula was hit along the boards and his skate stuck awkwardly into the ice or the boards causing his knee to buckle underneath him as he fell to the ice. A stretcher was needed to remove him from the ice and he did not return to the game. Following the game, Gallant expressed concern mentioning that it did not look good, but did not have any true injury update.
