Vegas Golden Knights alternate captain Alex Pietrangelo is set to return to the lineup Saturday night after missing nearly a month of action while attending to his daughter’s scary illness — details of which he shared with the media on Saturday afternoon.

In recent weeks, 4-year-old Evelyn Pietrangelo began to experience flu-like symptoms that ultimately worsened significantly as a result of a lesion that developed on her brain.

She lost all motor skills as a result and was unable to talk, walk or open her eyes, with doctors at Sunrise Hospital in Winchester, Nevada, connecting her to a feeding tube. After remaining bedridden in this state for weeks, Evelyn began to improve in recent days and is now able to walk around, with a full recovery expected.

Pietrangelo thanked the Golden Knights organization for his support during a scary time for his family. He returned to the ice on Saturday to participate in the team’s morning skate ahead of their game against the New York Islanders.
