Since being recalled in February because of an injury to Malcolm Subban, Lagace only appeared in two games for the Golden Knights. Hyka, managed one goal and a pair of assists in 10 total games while playing on Vegas’ third line.
Getting Hyka back will especially be an added benefit for the Wolves, given that prior to his call up with the Golden Knights, Hyka had registered 34 points in 33 games this season for the Wolves. Hyka is a huge offensive threat for the Wolves, and getting him back with some NHL experience under his belt should make him soar.

The addition of Lagace will also make a difference to the goaltending group, especially with another pair of back-to-back games upcoming for the Wolves this weekend. And it’s a foregone conclusion that Hyka and Lagace’s teammates will be excited to see them upon their return from the show.
