Vegas Golden Knights nhl trade deadline rumors predictions schedule NHL return

The Vegas Golden Knights have agreed to a deal that sends Paul Stastny to the Winnipeg Jets for Carl Dahlstrom and a 4th round pick in 2022.

The most important and immediate effect is the removal of Stastny’s last year of his $6.5M AAV deal from the VGK cap.

It has been speculated that Pietrangelo is looking for a deal around $9M AAV, and the max term the Golden Knights or any team could offer is seven years.

The NHL’s 2020 free agency period opens today at noon ET.
