Logan Thompson has received a ton of flak from fans recently. A major part of the "sky is falling" cries are based on his poor month of December (3.14 GAA, .887 SV%). Thompson himself admitted the month took a toll on him mentally, calling it, "the toughest month of his career".

However, reinforcements are on the horizon in the form of Adin Hill. The Stanley Cup hero has returned to skating, indicating he's one step closer to getting back on the ice. Granted, the Vegas Golden Knights shouldn't rush him back to the ice. However, having your star goaltender coming back soon is a promising sign. Plus, it takes the pressure off of Thompson. Players like Keegan Kolesar should also be returning to action, making life easier for Vegas.

Injuries have been a big problem for the Knights in recent years, taking names like Shea Theodore and William Karlsson out of commission. However, reinforcements are coming, which will help the Golden Knights.
