Detroit Red Wings Mock Trades

Vegas Golden Knights Receive: Jonatan Berggren

Detroit Red Wings Receive: Reilly Smith


Reilly Smith, who currently lines up as a right wing, will be going to the Detroit Red Wings in this scenario. The Detroit Red Wings have a great foundation they are building off with guys like Lucas Raymond, Mortiz Seider, Dylan Larkin and many more. Adding Smith this season would give them an extra boost to help them make a true run for the Atlantic Division.

Now, that division is going to be hard to win and adding Smith is probably not quite enough but they defiantly could really make a run for the Cup. Adding Berggren could be a good add to the Knights as well.

Who is Jonatan Berggren?

"“Berggren was a top scorer in the SHL, taking a major leap forward as a 20-year-old. He’s an entertaining player to watch. He is a great skater and can make difficult plays with the puck at full speed. His one-on-one skills and playmaking with pace allow you to see him creating in the NHL. He lacks size, physicality and isn’t much of a finisher, so just exactly how much he can score in the NHL will be a question. But he can certainly project to impact possession and create chances in a significant manner. Berggren projects as a middle-six winger.” -Corey Pronman"

Vegas Golden Knights Receive: 2022 Second-Round Pick

Detroit Red Wings Receive: Reilly Smith


This trade here results in the Vegas Golden Knights getting a pick back for Reilly Smith. Smith has been a very good player for the Knights since becoming a Knight. As I stated above, trading him away is a must and that means teams are going to take advantage of that matter. However, with them having two second-round picks and them being tied to Reilly Smith- they could get a second-round pick or maybe a first-round pick.
