Eakin (undisclosed) is expected to play Thursday night against the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

We're convinced Eakin will slot into the lineup against the Bolts considering it was head coach Gerard Gallant who originally said the two-way forward should be fit to play. Eakin has 18 points (six goals, 12 assists) through 42 games this season, but he hasn't been a part of an expansion-club nucleus that has shocked the masses. After all, nine skaters dressed in armor have more points than Eakin, who is more of a penalty-killing specialist.

Eakin (undisclosed) will not feature in Tuesday's matchup with Nashville.

EDGE Analysis

Eakin is traveling with the team, so he could still be available in time for Thursday's clash with the Lightning. In the interim, Ryan Carpenter will enter the lineup for just the second time since being claimed off waivers by Vegas on Dec. 13. Prior to getting hurt, the 26-year-old Eakin was struggling to produce, as he had registered a lone point in his last six contests.

Eakin is dealing with an undisclosed ailment, but will join the team on its four-game road trip.

EDGE Analysis

Eakin is day-to-day according to coach Gerard Gallant, leaving the door open for him to suit up versus Nashville on Tuesday. The center has just one goal in his previous six outings, which shouldn't come as a surprise when you consider he has tallied a mere five shots on goal over that stretch. During his slump, the 26-year-old has logged 13:44 of ice time per game -- well below his season average of 15:11.

Eakin dished out two assists in Saturday's win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Eakin came to play against his former club, making the most of his 10:36 of ice time. While the 26-year-old has been centering the third line, he's still managed to be a decent fantasy contributor with 14 points in 29 contests. Eakin is worth owning in some deeper formats, but his lack of power-play time combined with several pointless streaks this season make him a tough sell in shallow settings.

Eakin scored his third goal of the season and added a helper in Sunday's win over Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

The third-line center had gone six straight games with recording a point before getting back on track against the Kings. Eakin was credited with five shots on goal Sunday and brought his point total up to nine on the season. The 26-year-old isn't being used on the power play and has streaky tendencies, but for a depth scorer, he's worth owning in some deep leagues. Eakin has already matched the three goals he scored in 60 games last season with Dallas, so it appears the change of scenery was a good idea.

Eakin scored his second goal of the season during a 2-1 loss to Boston on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After registering just three assists in his first eight games, Eakin has totaled four points over his last four contests. The 6-foot center has seen significantly less ice time at even strength and during power plays, so the increased scoring may not be sustainable unless he earns some of that time back.

Eakin registered a goal and an assist in Friday's 7-0 rout over the Avalanche in Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the blowout, Colorado actually did well shutting down Vegas' power-play units, yielding one goal on five man-advantage opportunities. However, the 5-on-5 play from guys like Eakin was incredibly overwhelming for the Avs. This was the Canadian's first multi-point effort of the 2017-18 season, but the Golden Knights have jumped off to a mesmerizing start (8-1-0) and that bodes well for Eakin's chances of keeping it going offensively.

Eakin recorded an even-strength assist in Friday's 2-1 road win over the Stars. He also logged a whopping 22:57 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

Eakin was the primary distributor on James Neal's second goal. The top-six pivot won't forget about this one, as he was pitted against his former team for the first regular-season contest in the history of the Golden Knights franchise. It's strange to see a forward get that much ice time in a regulation contest, but then again, Vegas wants to prove it can be a competitive team from the start.

Eakin was reportedly selected by the Golden Knights, per Jim Toth of TSN 1290.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the start of the season, Eakin struggled to find his scoring touch as he registered a paltry three goals and nine helpers in 60 outings. No doubt general manager George McPhee will be hoping the center returns to his 2015-16 form in which he garnered 35 points. Even if the 26-year-old can rediscover his game, he likely won't see as much of ice time that he did last year with Dallas -- 16:49 per game.

Eakin was left exposed by the Stars for Wednesday's expansion draft.

EDGE Analysis

After a down year in which he scored just three goals and 12 points through 60 games, the Stars opted not to protect the 26-year-old center. With few centers available to Las Vegas, Eakin could be an alluring draft pick.
