Back in February, Stastny left the Blues and joined the Jets but was unable to re-sign with the team despite mutual interest due to Winnipeg’s tight salary cap. He then signed a three-year contract worth $19.5 million with Las Vegas in July.
The Golden Knights will be back in action Tuesday at home against the Buffalo Sabres.
