Garrison was waived by the Golden Knights on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vegas is loaded with defensemen on the organizational depth chart, and Garrison had watched the past four games from the press box. There was some speculation that he could be a mainstay for the nascent franchise after pitching in an assist with 21:36 of ice time in the season opener, but now he's likely to clear waivers and punch his ticket to AHL Chicago.

Garrison (lower body) hit the ice with his new teammates Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Garrison's three-year stint with the Lightning sputtered to a halt as he saw action in just one of the team's final nine outings due to a lower-body ailment. Taken by the Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, the 32-year-old figures to be on the top pairing alongside Nate Schmidt -- although coach Gerard Gallant could change things around during camp.

Garrison has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the NHL Expansion Draft, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to Garrison, Vegas is receiving prospect Nikita Gusev, a 2017 2nd round pick and 2018 4th round pick from the Lightning. It's heavy haul, but Tampa had a bunch of players that they wanted to keep in the expansion draft. Garrison had a cannon of a shot and has scored as many as 16 goals in a single season, but he posted just a single goal and nine points in 70 points for the Lightning in 2016-17. Assuming he gets power play time for the Golden Knights, he could make for a sneaky selection in deeper leagues.

Garrison (lower body) will skip the team's season finale Sunday against the Sabres, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

For a second consecutive season, the veteran blueliner didn't provide much production for fantasy owners. He finishes the campaign with just nine points (one goal, eight assists) and a minus-8 rating over 70 contests. He also so very little time on the man advantage, limiting Garrison's fantasy upside for the 2017-18 campaign.

Garrison (lower body) skated Friday morning, but is not expected to play Friday night's game in Montreal, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Counting Friday, Garrison has now missed seven of the Lightning's last eight contests and there's been no indication as to if he'll be ready to go for Sunday's regular season finale against the Sabres. The 32-year-old hasn't netted a goal since November and has just three points in the last 36 games he's played, so he's not worth of fantasy consideration in most formats anyway.

Garrison (lower body) is slated to miss Thursday night's matchup in Toronto, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garrison (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Bruins, Caley Chelios of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garrison left Sunday's clash with the Stars after 10:26 of ice time. His absence isn't likely to be noticed in the fantasy realm since he's picked up only nine points with a minus-8 rating in 70 games. Garrison is more of a stay-at-home blueliner anyhow.

Garrison left Sunday's game against the Stars with a lower-body injury and did not return.

EDGE Analysis

As such, the rearguard should be considered day-to-day until further information surfaces regarding his status. This was Garrison's first game back from a four-game injury absence -- which was also designated as lower-body -- so it wouldn't be unreasonable to suggest he experienced a setback with the same ailment. Regardless, the team should update his condition prior to Tuesday's matchup in Boston.

Garrison (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Sunday's contest against the Stars, Erik Erlendsson of Lightning Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garrison's run of absences will end at four with the news that he will return to the lineup Sunday. While his return will solidify the defensive ranks a bit, it shouldn't have a large impact in the fantasy realm. The veteran blueliner has tallied just nine points in 69 games this season and doesn't see regular time on the power play.
