Jake Guentzel Pittsburgh Penguins winger trade target for Vegas Golden Knights.
Are the Vegas Golden Knights pursuing Jake Guentzel? Get the latest NHL trade buzz and analysis here.

The Vegas Golden Knights rarely go into a trade deadline without making a splash, and this year could be one of their biggest. NHL Rumors are swirling that they could target not just one, but two top-tier forwards to fill the void left by Mark Stone’s season-ending injury. Stone’s placement on long-term injured reserve (LTIR) has suddenly given Vegas substantial cap flexibility.

The biggest fish in the trade rumor pond? Pittsburgh Penguins star Jake Guentzel. The talented winger is in the final year of his contract and with Pittsburgh not looking like serious contenders, a trade is becoming increasingly likely. Could Sin City become Guentzel’s new home?

Can the Vegas Golden Knights Land Jake Guentzel?

Elliotte Friedman, during his 32 Thoughts podcast, dropped a major hint. He stated the Golden Knights are prepared to swing for the fences in a hunt for the best available winger. Friedman also mentioned a well-connected source suggesting Vegas could try to bring in multiple forwards.

Jake Guentzel is a near point-per-game player who boasts excellent chemistry with Sidney Crosby. While pulling him away from Pittsburgh would be a challenge, the Penguins might be tempted if Vegas is willing to fork over two high-end prospects. With $9.5 million in unexpected cap space at their disposal following Stone’s injury, the Knights certainly have the financial ammunition to make a blockbuster trade.
