Golden Knights Wrap: Schedule Released, Draft Preview, and Rumors Galore

Published

on

Things are quiet in the NHL right now. But that will most certainly change in the next 24 hours as the 2022 NHL Draft is slated for Thursday night. The Golden Knights do not have a pick in the first round as they traded it to the Buffalo Sabres in the Jack Eichel deal. Still, the draft is one of the most important dates in the offseason as every general manager looks to reshape his team either through trading, prepping for free agency, or by building through the draft itself.

The NHL trade winds are swirling up to hurricane-level winds right now with JT Miller, Alex DeBrincat, and Jesper Bratt all having their names on the trade block. The Golden Knights, a team that always likes to be involved in big trade rumors, have been silent so far.
