NHL Rumors: Vegas Golden Knights Linked to Star Defenseman

Jakob Chychrun has been one of the biggest names in the rumor mill since last season, but the Arizona Coyotes have still yet to trade him. Yet, that is finally expected to change before this year's deadline passes, as the star defenseman has let it be known that he wants a change of scenery. Several teams have been linked to Chychrun, but it appears another club could consider bringing them in. According to Frank Seravalli, Chychrun could end up being a target for the Vegas Golden Knights.

Vegas has never been afraid to bring in top-tier talent through the trade market. In fact, that is actually what they have become famous for, as they are always aggressive when it comes to bringing in star players like Chychrun. With the Golden Knights looking like legitimate contenders again this season, it would make all the sense in the world for them to bring him in a deadline splash.

The Golden Knights will have a ton of competition if they decide to make a real push for Chychrun, but we certainly should not count them out. After all, he is exactly the kind of defenseman that they currently need on their roster.
