If you recall earlier in the season, Whitecloud was out for the start of the NHL season with an upper-body injury. The defenseman was also out for the start of the new year. The injury designation? Upper-body.

In fact, it's been this way for a bit. Last season, Zach Whitecloud spent some time on LTIR with a lower-body injury. He's also had foot injuries in the past, which has hurt the Vegas Golden Knights defensively.

Perhaps the scratch was because of an injury being re-aggravated. Could it have been his back, which has caused him problems in the past? Was it another foot injury? Whatever the case, the Golden Knights aren't taking any risks.
