Canucks acquire defenceman Nate Schmidt from Golden Knights for 2022 3rd-round pick

He captained the Blues to a Stanley Cup in 2019, won an Olympic gold medal with Team Canada in 2014, a World Cup title in 2016, and a world junior gold in 2009. From inside the raucous arena out to the Strip, it was a story made for Hollywood lavished by the pageantry of Las Vegas.

"I don't think you'll ever replicate that", Schmidt said. "The first year and the Vegas Flu and all that stuff that came along with it - the gals with the big feathers at the games - it was all wild". "It's not the first time, it won't be the last time this happens in the National Hockey League".

Alex Pietrangelo heard it can snow in Las Vegas and wasn't anxious about bundling up his four children if necessary.

"When we looked at opportunities to improve our team, we saw a rare opportunity to add an elite player like Alex to our team", Golden Knights general manager Kelly McCrimmon said in a statement Monday. "We're not going to apologize for that".

But Pietrangelo, who finished fourth in Norris Trophy voting and is one of the best right-shooting defensemen in the league, makes Vegas better.

Pietrangelo will now form one of the NHL's very best one-two punches on the Vegas blue line alongside breakout star Shea Theodore. "For us, we viewed it as a similar opportunity to when we acquired Mark Stone". After doing the same with Robin Lehner and deciding to keep face of the franchise Marc-Andre Fleury, it's committing $12 million in salary cap space to goaltending.

Accolades poured in for the former Proteas captain, with Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli calling his teammate "super-human". I don't even have words. "We knew that we had to scrap and get over the line once and that would give us the confidence".

Alex Pietrangelo has reportedly signed a maximum-term seven-year contract worth just less than $62 million with the Golden Knights after an official visit to the franchise over the weekend, several sources close to the situation are reporting. I think it's going to hopefully get me outside my comfort zone to certainly try something that I've never done before.

Adding the top free agent available gives Vegas another big-money talent, but the team will need to shed salary to fit him under the $81.5 million salary cap. "This is a good team, and I think I can really help".

Before the Golden Knights had even played their first game, owner Bill Foley set the expectation of reaching the playoffs in three years and winning the Stanley Cup in six.

"He has been a stalwart player for us, for this team for a number of years", Armstrong said. "We were a team that made it to the conference finals, which was short of our goal".

The Pietrangelo addition meant changes were coming to Vegas' roster for salary cap purposes.

"I was fairly with impressed with the way they operate and the way they go about their business", Pietrangelo said.
