The Vegas Golden Knights have had plenty of injury troubles in recent months, and that continued on Thursday against the Minnesota Wild.

During the game, goaltender Logan Thompson had to be helped off the ice with an apparent leg injury. It didn’t look good at all, as the 25-year-old couldn’t put any weight on his injured leg while his teammates assisted him in getting off the ice.

Thompson was set to undergo an MRI on Friday, and is now out week-to-week with the injury, according to the team. Based simply on how it looked as he was leaving the ice, it didn’t seem promising, but the MRI results could have been worse. It would be an extremely unfortunate blow if “week-to-week” turns out to be longer-term, as Thompson was having a Calder Trophy like season, registering a 2.66 goals against average paired with a .914 save percentage and a 20-13-3 record through 36 games. As a result of the injury to Thompson, the Golden Knights have called up Laurent Brossoit from the Henderson Silver Knights.
