The Golden Knights have traded Brandon Pirri to Chicago for F Dylan Sikura. Sikura has scored 1 goal in 47 career NHL games. He will likely become a Silver Knight. As for Pirri, the writing has been on the wall for a while. VGK appealed to him for 2 main reasons. First, if he wasn't in the NHL (where he wants to be) he would be playing in Chicago, where his family lives. With VGK moving their AHL team to Henderson, that's no longer the case. Second, he had a connection with Gerard Gallant. Pirri gets what he wants, VGK get a useable AHLer in return.
