Alex Pietrangelo is in Las Vegas!
But will he leave Vegas as a member of the Golden Knights?
Pietrangelo Watch started this morning with a now-deleted tweet from a St. Louis airport employee.
A few minutes later, Pierre LeBrun confirmed Chris Johnston’s report:
Alex Pietrangelo confirms he's headed to Las Vegas today for a UFA visit with the Golden Knights.

…and his visit to the Vegas Golden Knights’ practice facility. LeBrun also added more detail about the visit.

Most informed observers think Pietrangelo is Vegas-bound.
“Vegas clearly the front runner,” LeBrun shared on TSN. “No other team or city on tap right now for Alex Pietrangelo”
Next up for the Vegas Golden Knights, can they get rid of Marc-Andre Fleury’s contract to fit Pietrangelo’s expected $8.5-9 million dollar per year agreement?
