MORNING SKATE REPORT: JANUARY 27, 2024

HENDERSON, N.V. – The Henderson Silver Knights will take on the Colorado Eagles in the second game of their back-to-back series. The team will look to get back in the win column after a 3-2 overtime loss on Friday evening. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. PT. 

RETURN FOR THE HENDY TENDY

Goaltender Jiri Patera returned to Henderson ice on Friday evening, making his first start since January 10 and his first in the AHL since November 29, 2023. He stopped 29 of 32 shots against for a .906 save percentage on the evening. 

“I feel good after the injury,” said Patera after Friday’s game. “Obviously a little rusty in the first period – I think I got into my game as the game got along.” 

“It’s obviously so different from just practicing for the last week or so,” he added. “It was a little hard getting back into the game. They like to play off the rush, a speed game, and obviously they made it tough on us there.”
