ISLES ON GOLDEN KNIGHTS:

The Islanders weighed in on Vegas' hot start on Monday morning. 

Head Coach Doug Weight:
"They work hard, they are well coached and they have done a good job. [GM] George [McPhee] has built a team of guys that have a lot to prove and guys that have skill, a solid D corps... They had a pretty good pool of players to pick from. They have a good team and are up in the top of the league for a reason - their work ethic and they're scoring some big goals."

Jordan Eberle: 
"They have a good squad. A lot of teams maybe underestimate them and I don't think they will now. They are off to a great start. We have to be ready and we have to be at our best and match the effort that we gave in Nashville."

VEGAS RECALLS THEODORE: 

The Golden Knights recalled defenseman Shea Theodore from the Chicago Wolves on Monday afternoon and he is expected to make his Vegas debut against the Islanders. Theodore was a first-round pick of the Anaheim Ducks in 2013 and had 11 points (5G, 6A) in eight games with the AHL Wolves this season. 

Former Islander Griffin Reinhart was assigned to Chicago to accomodate Theodore's recall.
