Less than 24 hours after he was plucked from the Chicago Blackhawks’ roster by the Vegas Golden Knights, defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk is on the move again.
This time, van Riemsdyk is heading from Sin City to the East Coast, as he’s been traded to the Carolina Hurricanes, according to multiple reports.
In exchange, the Golden Knights will receive a late second round draft pick from the Hurricanes. Carolina will also get a seventh round pick in the swap, according to TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.
The young defenseman spent the first three seasons of his career with the Blackhawks, appearing in 158 games. He has scored eight career goals and dished out 23 assists in those games.
He was claimed during the NHL’s Expansion Draft on Wednesday night by the Golden Knights, who will begin play this October. Shortly after he was picked, reports emerged that several teams were trying to acquire him in a trade with Vegas, and Carolina ultimately won out over teams like Dallas, according to reports.
