Top Jiri Patera News

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Dropped to minors

    Patera was assigned to AHL Henderson on Tuesday.

    Patera suited up as Adin Hill's backup in Monday's 5-3 loss to Minnesota because Logan Thompson (illness) was unavailable. Thompson has plenty of time to recover ahead of Saturday's home matchup versus Carolina.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Recalled from AHL

    Patera was called up from AHL Henderson on Monday.

    Logan Thompson (illness) won't be in the lineup Monday against Minnesota, so Patera will probably serve as Adin Hill's backup. However, it should be noted that Vegas has not confirmed a starting goaltender yet for the contest.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Returned to AHL

    Patera (undisclosed) was assigned to AHL Henderson on Tuesday.

    Patera will get some playing time in the minors after missing the past six games due to an undisclosed injury. In five appearances with Vegas this season, he has posted a 1-3-0 record with a 3.75 GAA and a .901 save percentage.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Remains unavailable

    Patera (undisclosed) won't dress for Monday's game against the Devils, Chris Chapman of Fox Sports Las Vegas reports.

    With Patera unavailable, Logan Thompson will start versus New Jersey with Isaiah Saville serving as his backup. Adin Hill (undisclosed) could return to action as soon as Tuesday against the Islanders, which means Patera will likely return to the minors as soon as he's healthy.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Unavailable vs. Rangers

    Patera has a 1-3-0 record, 3.75 GAA and .901 save percentage in five contests this season. Logan Thompson is expected to start Thursday while Isaiah Saville will serve as the backup goaltender.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Out Monday

    Patera (undisclosed) will not be available Monday against Nashville but could dress as early as Thursday against the Rangers, per Sin Bin Vegas.

    Patera will miss a third straight game Monday but appears to be nearing a return. The 24-year-old is 1-3-0 with a .901 save percentage through five NHL appearances this season. Logan Thompson is expected to start Monday with Isaiah Saville serving as the backup.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Unavailable Saturday

    Patera (undisclosed) won't play Saturday's home game versus Calgary, according to Jesse Granger of The Athletic.

    Logan Thompson is expected to start while Isaiah Saville will be the backup goaltender. Patera has a 3.17 GAA and a .900 save percentage in 14 appearances with AHL Henderson as well as a 3.75 GAA and a .901 save percentage in five outings with Vegas.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Not dressing due to injury

    Patera (undisclosed) will not dress for Thursday's game versus the Bruins, Danny Webster of the Las Vegas Sun reports.

    Patera played all of Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Avalanche, but apparently sustained an injury between the end of that contest and the start of Thursday's game. Isaiah Saville is up with the Golden Knights to back up Logan Thompson, who will return from an illness Thursday. Adin Hill (undisclosed) remains on injured reserve.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: No help in loss

    Patera stopped 32 of 35 shots in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Avalanche.

    Patera wasn't expected to start this game, but Adin Hill (undisclosed) was not able to make his return from injured reserve. For playing on short notice, it was a solid effort from Patera in his best NHL start of the year, but he still took his third straight loss. The 24-year-old is 1-3-0 with 16 goals allowed over five top-level appearances in 2023-24. Once Hill and Logan Thompson (illness) are both able to play, Patera will likely head back to AHL Henderson.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Starting Wednesday

    Contrary to a previous report that had Adin Hill (undisclosed) starting, Patera will start Wednesday versus the Avalanche, Danny Webster of the Las Vegas Sun reports.

    Hill was initially expected to start but ultimately wasn't cleared to play prior to warmups. Patera will make his fifth appearance of the season, having gone 1-2-0 with 13 goals allowed on 126 shots so far. He'll have a tough road matchup ahead against the Avalanche's high-end talent.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Busy in Saturday's loss

    Patera turned aside 38 shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.

    The young goalie stood on his head early, facing 20 shots in the first period alone and stopping them all, but Patera couldn't do much when Florida scored twice on power plays less than two minutes apart in the third period. It's still not clear when Logan Thompson (upper body) might be able to return, and Adin Hill (undisclosed) also lacks a timeline to come off IR, so Patera could still be Vegas' No. 1 netminder on the other side of the Christmas break.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Set to start Saturday

    Patera is expected to start on the road against Florida on Saturday, per Doug Plagens of the Panthers Radio Network.

    Patera has a 1-1-0 record, 3.88 GAA and .893 save percentage in three contests this season. While those results are poor, the Golden Knights are missing goaltenders Logan Thompson (upper body) and Adin Hill (undisclosed), so they're low on options. At least the Panthers are a favorable matchup -- they're tied for 24th offensively this year with 2.88 goals per game.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Battles hard, but takes loss

    Patera made 31 saves in a 5-4 loss to the Lightning on Thursday.

    Patera battled all night and can't be faulted, even on the winning goal. He made a save on Brayden Point and deftly directed the rebound to the deep left wing side of his net. But Nick Paul was standing right there and instantly knifed a snipe from almost the goal line. Patera will dress and play as long as Logan Thompson (upper body) and Adin Hill (undisclosed) remain sidelined. The team around him is strong, so Patera could end up being a solid short-term play.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Slated to start Thursday

    Patera is set to start on the road against Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Patera is getting this opportunity because Logan Thompson (upper body) and Adin Hill (undisclosed) are both unavailable. Isaiah Saville was summoned from AHL Henderson on Wednesday and is slated to serve as the backup goaltender versus the Lightning. Patera is 1-0-0 with a 3.00 GAA and a .917 save percentage in two contests with Vegas this season. The 24-year-old netminder also has a 3.17 GAA and a .900 save percentage in 14 outings with Henderson. The Lightning rank ninth offensively this year with 3.36 goals per game, so they'll be a tough assignment.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Perfect in relief Tuesday

    Patera turned aside all 10 shots he faced after replacing Logan Thompson early in the third period of Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Making just his second NHL appearance of the season, Patera was sharp and gave Vegas a chance to at least make the final score respectable. With Adin Hill (undisclosed) potentially still unavailable, Patera could be in line to get the start and give Thompson a breather Thursday in Tampa Bay.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Back in NHL

    Patera was summoned from AHL Henderson on Monday.

    Patera's return to the big club doesn't bode well for Adin Hill (undisclosed), who was injured in his return to the lineup Sunday against Ottawa. Patera made 34 saves in a 5-4 shootout win over the Sharks on Dec. 10 during his NHL season debut. If Hill isn't able to suit up for Tuesday's matchup against Carolina, Patera will probably serve as Logan Thompson's backup.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Reassigned to minors

    Patera was demoted to AHL Henderson on Sunday.

    Patera was sent back down after Adin Hill (lower body) returned to action Sunday. However, Hill quickly left with an injury, so Patera could be back up with the big club in the coming days. Patera stopped 34 shots in a 5-4 shootout win over the Sharks on Dec. 10, his lone NHL appearance so far this season.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Grabs shootout win

    Patera stopped 35 of 39 shots in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Sharks.

    Patera allowed a goal in the opening minute and eventually blew a two-goal lead late in the third period. The 24-year-old still emerged with the win, stopping two shootout attempts to secure his first NHL victory of the season and the third in as many career starts. Patera will continue to hold down the backup role while Adin Hill (lower body) is out of action, but he may not play next week, as the Golden Knights don't have a back-to-back scheduled.

  • Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Tending twine Sunday

    Patera will get the starting nod at home against the Sharks on Sunday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    Patera will make his season debut and his first NHL appearance since March 19 of the 2022-23 campaign. The 24-year-old is 6-6-2 with a .900 save percentage and a 3.17 GAA in 14 AHL games this season. He's stopped 65 of 70 shots in two career NHL outings.
