On September 10, 2018, Montreal sent Max Pacioretty to the Vegas Golden Knights for center Nick Suzuki, winger Tomas Tatar, and a 2019 second-round draft pick. He got a four-year extension worth $28 million after, solidifying himself in Vegas.

In the cruelest twist of irony, Suzuki and the Canadiens met the Golden Knights in the 2021 Stanley Cup semifinals. The result? Montreal pulled off a massive upset, being Vegas in six games. Who led the charge? None other than Suzuki and his partner-in-crime, Cole Caufield.
