The Alex Pietrangelo watch is over.
Because it began wanting increasingly more possible, per stories over the previous few days, Pietrangelo to the Golden Knights seems like a completed deal. The 30-year-old defenseman and Vegas are finalizing a seven-year, $61.6 million contract ($8.Eight million common annual worth), based on a number of stories Monday evening. Per the stories, the deal has a full no-movement clause.
The Athletic’s Pierre LeBrun first reported the deal.
Pietrangelo, the previous Blues captain, is a two-time All-Star, Stanley Cup champion and do-it-all blueliner. Within the final 4 seasons, Pietrangelo has 58 objectives, 137 assists and a plus-24 ranking. Over that span, solely two defensemen (Brent Burns and Dougie Hamilton) have scored extra objectives than Pietrangelo.
For a number of causes, the Flyers were highly unlikely to land Pietrangelo or even seriously pursue him. It is unknown in the event that they expressed curiosity.
