The NHL Trade Market has seen it’s first trade leading up to the 2022 NHL Trade Deadline. Pacific Division rival of the Vegas Golden Knights, the Calgary Flames acquired Tyler Toffoli from the Montreal Canadiens.

But later in the day the Golden Knights one-upped the Flames by annoucning that Jack Eichel (who the Flames missed out on in the trade market) would be playing his first game as a Golden Knight soon.

Vegas: Mark Stone has decided to carry the team on his back. Well, sort of, the Golden Knights captain will move to LTIR which will allow Eichel to make his VGK debut Wednesday against the Avalanche. Robin Lehner is also out with an upper-body injury. His timetable in unknown.

So it looks like, for the time being, the Golden Knights are chosing option two and will try and cheat the system like the 2021 Tampa Bay Lightning did with Nikita Kucherov. The option of trading a player like Reilly Smith or Evgenii Dadonov still remains though as Stone is not confirmed to be out until the playoffs just yet.

Kladno: A happy 50th birthday to Jaromir Jagr, one of the greatest players and personalities in NHL history. Just waiting for the announcment that Kelly McCrimmon has signed Jagr to a deal with the VGK.
