OK Daily: NHL Trade Market Heating Up; Reilly Smith on Trade Bait List



Reilly Smith Vegas Golden Knights

The Vegas Golden Knights took care of business Friday night and put up a touchdown against the Arizona Coyotes winning 7-1. The team still sits out of a playoff spot fifth in the division but will look to take down the division-leading Calgary Flames Sunday night at home.

Reilly Smith is off to an incredible start this season with 18 points in 23 games and a pair of shorthanded goals. But with the Golden Knights needing to acquire cap space in order to fit Jack Eichel under the NHL salary cap, could Smith find himself on the NHL trade block soon? Elsewhere do the Arizona Coyotes have any trade chips that the Golden Knights would be interested in. Also, when will the Canadiens start to sell?

Vegas: Looking at the Coyotes last night made me realize that there are a lot of potential trade chips on the roster for general manager Bill Armstrong.

Speaking of trades, here are five names on the NHL trade block that the Golden Knights could be interested in.
