The Vancouver Canucks have acquired Nate Schmidt from the Vegas Golden Knights for a third-round pick in 2022, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
This is a salary dump for the Golden Knights, who are on the verge of signing free-agent defenseman Alex Pietrangelo to a seven-year, $61.6 million contract. Schmidt has five years remaining on a deal that pays him $5.95 million per year. The 29-year-old is a solid defender, but the Golden Knights are clearly upgrading by going with Pietrangelo. He had seven goals and 31 points in 59 games with Vegas last season. He added two goals and seven assists in 20 games during the postseason. This is a significant acquisition for a Canucks team that has lost Troy Stecher and Chris Tanev this off-season. Oct 12 8:25 pm (EST)
