Assigned to the minors earlier this fall, Sven Bärtschi has been recalled by the Vegas Golden Knights, alongside fellow forward Paul Cotter. The Knights are currently dealing with some absences, the most recent one being Jonathan Marchessault (Covid protocol).

So far this season, Bärtschi has made twelve games with Vegas' AHL affiliate, the Henderson Silver Knights. His eight points (four goals and assists each) rank second on the team.

The Golden Knights will face the Carolina Hurricanes (who might see a possible comeback of Nino Niederreiter) tonight.
