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.
