NHL Rumors: Vegas Golden Knights Linked to Coyotes Defenseman

The Vegas Golden Knights are having a great bounce-back season, and they are looking like legitimate contenders in the process. Yet, it is clear that they should be looking to make a few moves before the deadline passes, as they always could get better. The left side of their defense could use a boost, so perhaps they could make a push for Arizona coyotes defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere.

Although Jakob Chychrun is the talk of the town when it comes to the Coyotes’ trade candidates, Gostisbehere is also a player who should get a lot of attention on the open market. After all, he provides excellent offense from the point, and that is a trend we have only seen continue this year. As a result, he could be a great addition to Vegas’ second pairing and top power-play unit.

The Golden Knights have been linked to Chychrun, but Gostisbehere could be a sweet consolation prize if Vegas wants to give up less to improve. Alas, we will have to wait and see if the Golden Knights end up acquiring Gostisbehere from here.
