Golden Knights Trade Candidate Report: Anthony Duclair

A trade between the Vegas Golden Knights and the San Jose Sharks?! That seems impossible. But here's why that's a possibility.

Some things don't happen quite often, if at all. A solar eclipse, the Oakland/(soon-to-be) Las Vegas A's winning a game, and the Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks making a trade. There's a better chance you'll win the lottery than see the two rivals trade among each other.

But there's a possibility this will happen. It already happened with Adin Hill becoming a Vegas Golden Knight in August 2022. With the Sharks already tanking the season, they could give up one of their forwards for a draft pick or two.

Enter Anthony Duclair. The former Arizona Coyote has 16 goals in 56 games this season and would add more forward depth to a slumping Golden Knights team. What will it take to add the native of Pointe-Claire, Quebec? Could a trade between Vegas and San Jose actually happen?
