NHL - US Sports: Dadonov stars for Vegas after trade drama

Coach Peter DeBoer praised Evgenii Dadonov after he put his trade drama behind him to star in Vegas Golden Knights' 6-1 victory over Nashville Predators.

The Golden Knights, 18/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, traded the 33-year-old to the Anaheim Ducks on Monday but the NHL voided the move, saying his contract included a limited no-trade clause that was not complied with.

Trade confusion

Dadonov was acquired by Vegas in July 2021, after signing a three-year contract with the Senators in October 2020 which included the limited no-trade clause.

On his list of teams that Dadonov would not accept a trade to was Anaheim, which caused confusion after the trade was announced on Monday.

Dadonov welcomed back

Accepting that a mistake had been made, the Golden Knights and DeBoer have welcomed forward Dadonov back into the squad and he showed no signs of discontent as he scored and laid on two assists.

In 63 games for Vegas this season, Dadonov has 30 points  - 16 goals and 14 assists.

The Golden Knights (34-28-4) are one point behind the Dallas Stars for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference, and three points behind the Edmonton Oilers for third place in the Pacific Division.

DeBoer said to the media: "How he handled the situation, how [the fans] handled the situation, couldn't have been done better. We needed him out there tonight. He was a big help for us."
