Who Have Been The Most Healthy Golden Knights?

The best ability is availability. No one knows that better than the Vegas Golden Knights.

In the playoff run that culminated in a Stanley Cup championship for the Golden Knights, they missed just six games from skaters over the 22-game stretch. 18 skaters per game or 22 games minus the six lost means VGK had 98.5% health rate in the 2023 playoffs.

That has not been common for the Golden Knights. Every season for the past three, one of the main talking points has been injuries. Vegas are routinely among the top five in the league in man games lost.

This season, just three players played all 82 games. Brayden McNabb, Jonathan Marchessault, and Ivan Barbashev each suited up for every regular season and playoff game. The same was the case last year as McNabb was joined by William Karlsson and Phil Kessel in playing all 82. The year before, VGK did not have a single player suit up for every regular season game.

Here’s a full look at every Golden Knights’ availability over the last three seasons.

Marchessault and McNabb have been the bastions of good health for the Golden Knights each suiting up for more than 90% of the total games plus all but one playoff game (McNabb missed Game 5 vs WPG in 2023).

Chandler Stephenson has still never played in all 82 games but he has been available in at least 75 games each of the last three years.

Keegan Kolesar has also been remarkably healthy considering his play style. He’s been in the lineup for 230 of VGK’s 246 games since 2021. Contrast that to his linemate William Carrier who has played just 158.

When Will The Golden Knights Start Making Moves?

    Sven Baertschi. Who??

  2. JV

    Not surprised by this. Does anybody in the organization have an idea why it keeps happening. Is it training, conditioning, fluke of bad luck? Carrier and Whitecloud can be penciled in to miss 20 + games each season. Theodore becoming an injury liability now. Even the goalies, though Hill did have an injury history. Hope they figure something out to end this injury streak.

        As the article states, Vegas is routinely in the Top 5 Man games lost. Has to be something more than just ” It’s a physical sport”.
