DONE DEAL: Golden Knights & Coyotes Complete Trade

The Vegas Golden Knights have freed up a bunch of salary cap space as the team has traded defenseman Shea Weber (contract) and a fifth-round pick in 2023 to the Arizona Coyotes for forward Dysin Mayo.

This is a very financial transaction for the Golden Knights who now have some cap flexibility not only for ahead of the March 3 trade deadline but also looking ahead to next season and beyond. 

As for Mayo, he's a 26-year-old right-handed defenseman who was originally a fifth-round pick by the Coyotes back in 2014. Mayo's appeared in 18 games this season and did not register a point in Arizona, and was a -8 rating.

Vegas can now add just about anyone and will be big players in the trade market this season.
