The Vegas Golden Knights will play their last first game of the season against a new opponent tonight in the Carolina Hurricanes. The VGK are starting a three-game homestand that will take them through the NHL's Trade Deadline, which is on Friday.
With the deadline looming, several fan-favorite players were traded Tuesday. Patrick Kane leaves Chicago, Jonathan Quick LA, and Mattias Ekholm Nashville. All three players had great runs with their individual teams with Kane and Quick both winning multiple Stanley Cups.
Seeing these guys in new jerseys will be strange. For all of our trade deadline content, check out the trade roundup page.
