Vegas Golden Knights forward Nolan Patrick will miss the entirety of the 2022-23 season, general manager Kelly McCrimmon announced Thursday.

McCrimmon reaffirmed that defenceman Shea Weber and goaltender Robin Lehner will miss the season as well. Captain Mark Stone, who had back surgery in May, is beginning training camp in a non-contact jersey.

Patrick has sustained a multitude of injuries during the course of his career, starting with shoulder issues while playing junior hockey. Patrick was the second-overall draft selection of the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2017 NHL Draft, and in the 2019-20 season, what would've been his third year in the league, he was diagnosed with a migraine disorder that forced him to miss the entirety of the campaign.

He made his return to the ice on Jan. 13, 2021 and would go on to play in all but four of the Flyers' regular season games in 2020-21.

In July 2021, Patrick was traded to the Golden Knights. He would go on to record two goals and five assists with a plus-one rating in 25 appearances during the 2021-22 season.
