Rumor: Golden Knights on the verge of trading Logan Thompson

The Vegas Golden Knights made history in 2022-23 by securing their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, and it's safe to say that plenty of the credit for that run goes to their goaltending.

A star on the rise


One key piece of that goaltending situation was the emergence of Logan Thompson, who quickly became one of the teams most important players in 2022-23.

The 26-year old would play in 37 games, posting a 21-13-3 record over that time with a .915 save percentage and a 2.65 GAA, and with those types of numbers, you'd expect him to have a shot at being the teams starter next season.

Trade interest

However, Thompson has made it clear he doesn't want to be in Vegas long-term, and now, teams are swooping in the trade market, with Eklund of Hockey Buzz revealing that the Buffalo Sabres are the team to keep an eye on in this emerging situation.


For a Sabres team looking to take a step forward into playoff contention, Thompson would be the perfect goaltender to lead them that way, but both the Devils and Hurricanes are teams to keep an eye on as well.

Either way, it appears the Alberta native is on the way out in Vegas, with a trade becoming a matter of when, not if, as they look to go back-to-back after their first Cup win in franchise history.
