NHL Rumors: Golden Knights To Trade Center

According to Jesse Granger, William Karlsson is a player who the Vegas Golden Knights could end up trading this offseason due to their salary cap trouble. 

Karlsson carries a $5.9 million cap hit until the end of the 2026-27 season. Although the original Golden Knight has put together some solid seasons in Vegas, his time there could be coming to a close. With the team adding Jack Eichel and the emergence of Chandler Stephenson, it may make Karlsson and his high cap hit expendable. 

In 67 games this season, Karlsson had 12 goals to go along with 35 total points. Overall, there certainly would be a market for him if he is made available, but he also has a 10-team no-trade list. Thus, he does have some control over his next potential home. Alas, we will have to wait and see if a move goes down.
