T. Rask - G
Rask will be between the pipes on the road versus the Oilers on Wednesday.
O. Kase - F
Kase (illness) will miss Wednesday's home game versus the Panthers.
D. Dubnyk - G
Dubnyk will defend the road net Wednesday against the Canucks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
E. Gudbranson - D
Gudbranson (upper body) will need at least another week before getting back into the lineup. Coach Dallas Eakins told reporters, "Gudbranson is coming along very good, he'll be evaluated here in the next few days and hopefully we'll see him on the ice in a week or so."
A. Martinez - D
Martinez was acquired by the Golden Knights from the Kings on Wednesday in exchange for second-round picks in 2020 and 2021, Kings beat writer John Hoven reports.
Prior to sitting out Tuesday's matchup with Winnipeg, Martinez was stuck in a six-game pointless streak and hasn't scored a goal in his last 13 contests. No doubt part of the appeal for Vegas is the fact that Martinez is under contract for one more season at a $4 million cap hit. With Martinez in the fold, Deryk Engelland figures to be the odd man out on the blue line while Nate Schmidt could lose his spot with the No. 2 power-play unit.

S. Gostisbehere - D
Gostisbehere will miss Thursday's matchup with Columbus due to his lingering knee problem, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
