The Golden Knights announced today that Jack Dugan signed a two-year entry-level contract.

He is currently the #2 ranked skater on the SinBin.vegas Prospect Rankings.

It was a unique situation. For me I knew what I wanted to do at the end of my college season. I knew I wanted to sign or join or whatever with the Vegas Golden Knights, I knew that’s where I wanted to be. We were kind of taking it in stride and seeing what was going to happen. -Dugan

GOLDEN KNIGHTS ACQUIRE ROBIN LEHNER (G) FROM CHICAGO

The Golden Knights have acquired goalie Robin Lehner from the Chicago Blackhawks according to multiple reports.

The return is still not confirmed but it is expected to be a 2nd round pick and a prospect. Malcolm Subban will be headed to Chicago as well. The prospect will be Slava Demin, VGK’s 5th round pick in 2018.

The deal was completed as part of a three-way trade.

VGK gets: Robin Lehner & Martins Dzierkals
CHI gets: Malcolm Subban & Slava Demin
TOR gets: VGK 5th round pick

This was done so that salary could be retained by both Chicago and Toronto allowing the trade to be completed keeping Vegas cap compliant.

Lehner finished 3rd in Vezina voting last season and has posted .918 save percentage this season in Chicago. He is an unrestricted free agent on July 1st (and has expressed a willingness to sign a large deal), but his cap hit for the remainder of the season is $5 million.

Per TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Golden Knights have sent Cody Eakin to the Winnipeg Jets for a conditional 4th round pick.

The Golden Knights confirmed the trade shortly after the news broke on Twitter.

No salary was retained in this transaction. The move clears $3.85 million in cap space for the Golden Knights potentially making way for another move in the near future.

GM Kelly McCrimmon is expected to speak to the media about the trade tomorrow after morning skate.

The deal that was rumored all day yesterday has been completed. The Golden Knights have traded their 2020 2nd round pick and the Blues 2021 2nd round pick (from Colin Miller trade) to the Los Angeles Kings for defenseman Alec Martinez.

Martinez is a 32-year-old left-handed defenseman who has the ability to play both sides on defense. He comes with a $4 million cap hit through the end of the 2020-21 season.

Statistically, Martinez has struggled a bit offensively with just one goal and eight points in 41 games. He does average over 21 minutes of ice time and has a ton of playoff experience including scoring the game-winning goal of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.

Martinez is expected to join the team and play tomorrow against the Lightning.

He’s a nice addition to our group. He’s a seasoned guy that has the ability to raise his level at the important times of year and we’re excited to have him. -Pete DeBoer

Kelly and I had some frank conversations about the strengths and weaknesses of the team. I don’t think it’s any secret that getting a defenseman has been a priority or at least at the top of the list. If they were going to do something that was going to be one of the first things they did. I think those conversations were pretty frank and pretty early in the process. -DeBoer

His skating, he’s a strong guy. He’s a warrior, he’ll block a lot of shots. He can chip in offensively and he still play some power play. -Brayden McNabb
