Schmidt can take part in training camp but is ineligible for preseason games and can't play until Vegas visits Edmonton on Nov. 18. Analysis: Schmidt says in a statement he did not intentionally take a banned substance and "will not accept being labeled a cheater." The Golden Knights say they disagree with the suspension and "firmly believe that the presence of a trace of the banned substance was accidental and unintentional." The 27-year-old Schmidt led the Golden Knights in ice time last season at 22:14 a game. He had 36 points during the regular season and seven during Vegas' run to the Stanley Cup Final.
