Noah Hanifin to Vegas Golden Knights trade officially complete

Published May 5, 2024 at 11:15 PM

The Vegas Golden Knights acquired Noah Hanifin from Calgary at the deadline, and now, the two conditions on the deal have become official.

On Sunday after a gruelling seven games, the Vegas Golden Knights were officially eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, thus ensuring we will have a new champion in 2024.

One other thing that series loss did was finish off the trade with the Calgary Flames that saw Noah Hanifin sent to Vegas.

That trade initially came with two conditions, one of which was met when Vegas traded their 2025 first-round pick for Tomas Hertl, ensuring that the Flames would get the Golden Knights 2026 first-round pick. The other came true tonight, as the Flames would have acquired a 2025 second-round pick if Vegas won a single series, but since that didn't occur, they will instead land their 2024 third-round pick.

The 2024 3rd round pick #VegasBorn sent to the #Flames in the Noah Hanifin trade will NOT upgrade to a 2025 2nd round pick.

Ultimately, it appears this one may turn out to be a solid deal for both teams, as Calgary land a first and a third round pick for Hanifin, while the Golden Knights get a potential top pairing defenseman for a long, long time to come.
