Report: Young Defenseman Concerned With Golden Knights Management

The Vegas Golden Knights are already dealing with injury trouble once again for the 2022-2023 season. Injuries hampered this team last year, which resulted in them missing the playoffs. Captain Mark Stone is set to miss training camp, and who knows how much of the season to start while goaltender Robin Lehner is out for the season and fellow goaltender Laurent Brossoit is set to miss significant time.

The main report surrounding the Golden Knights this summer was the history of Vegas management completely mishandling players, and that free agents are actually avoiding the club due to the front office.

Those same issues have continued with the latest reports regarding restricted free agent Nicolas Hague. Vince Sapienza of FOX Sports was the first to report:

It does not sound like things are progressing at the moment between the Golden Knights and RFA Nic Hague re: a new contract.

I’m told there has been ”very little dialogue since early July.”

Hague is in Vegas, ready for the start of training camp on Sep. 21st, but his camp is ”getting concerned with the lack of communication.”

It’s my understanding if there is no deal reached by then, he will not report to VGK camp and train elsewhere.

As per Sapienza’s reports, there has been no progress on contract talks, and Hague’s representation is growing more and more concerned by the lack of dialogue, especially this close to training camp.

Hague is in Vegas and ready for camp; however, if no deal can be made, he will not report, which would be a significant blow.

Hague was originally selected 34th overall in the second round by the Golden Knights at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. In 142 career games, the 23-year-old has recorded ten goals and 32 assists.

If Hague and the Golden Knights can’t find mutual ground, Vegas may be forced to trade the defenseman in hopes of getting a solid return. Only time will tell how this one will play out but at the moment it doesn’t look like a deal will get done anytime soon.

Bruins’ Defensive Prospect Becoming A Workhorse

The Boston Bruins have a long line of great defensemen in their history and one of the league’s top pairs in Charlie McAvoy and Hampus Lindholm.
