Following an absence of three months, defenseman Shea Theodore, who plays for the Vegas Golden Knights, will be making his return. 

In order to treat an injury that he sustained to his upper body, Theodore underwent surgery toward the end of the month of November.  

Theodore has accumulated 282 points in 470 games throughout his career, playing for the Anaheim Ducks from 2015 to 2017 and Vegas from 2017 to 2024. 

In the evening of Monday, Theodore took part in the warm-ups that preceded Vegas' victory over the San Jose Sharks by a score of 4-0 

Coach Bruce Cassidy stated that there will be no limitations on Theodore's playing time except for his comfort and physical fitness. 

Theodore is a top-tier offensive defenseman who scored four goals and accumulated 18 points in 20 games. 

Theodore is currently tied with Alec Martinez for the most goals scored by a defenseman on the team, despite missing some games. 

Theodore has consistently been one of the top defensemen for the Golden Knights, having the highest number of points among all Vegas defensemen.
