Daily Nuggets: Vegas’s Current Conundrum; Sharks Trading Key Players?



For the Vegas Golden Knights, it’s been nothing but hard times lately. It’s not quite Dusty Rhodes’s iconic Hard Times speech but they’re losers of five of their last six. The Golden Knights have searched for answers, mainly on the offensive front. Luckily, some players have stepped up, with one star looking exceptionally well with William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault. However, it doesn’t hurt to acquire additional backup. That’s especially true with teams like the Anaheim Ducks and Pittsburgh Penguins selling off assets. For Vegas, the world’s their oyster.

As for the competition? Well, they’re looking to get key pieces back or avoid brutal injuries, too. Whether it’s key players returning for Colorado, Jamie Drysdale missing a devastating injury, or San Jose exploring trades for prospects, hockey is seeing busy bees at work. You can also count players like Matt Rempe rising to the occasion, making his hometown proud! There’s even Kirill Kaprizov getting his flowers for Minnesota, propelling them back into playoff contention. With that, here are your Daily Nuggets for the day!
