According to Jesse Granger of The Athletic, Jonathan Marchessault has been made available by the Vegas Golden Knights.
The Golden Knights are currently over the salary cap limit after inking Alex Pietrangelo to a huge free-agent deal. Many believed Marc-Andre Fleury would be shipped out of town but Vegas has found it hard to find a team willing to take on $7 million cap hit for the next two seasons. Marchessault,29, has a $5 million cap hit for another four seasons, with an eight team no trade list. The 29-year-old forward exploded in his first season with Vegas, finishing with 75 points but finished each of the last two campaigns with 59 and 47 points respectively. There will definitely be suitors for the veteran forward but the Golden Knights have little to no leverage in trade negotiations as long as they remain over the cap. According to Granger, Max Pacioretty and his $7 million cap hit have also been made available. Dec 08 8:47 pm (EST)
