Last Chance For Lehtera / Smith
February 24, 2018
It appears the luck has run dry with Vegas falling out of the bubble picture as losers of 6 straight.

With the trade window opening, the Knights have a few players likely seeing their last chance to make a cup run who have requested management explore all options to help give them that chance.

29-year old’s Jori Lehtera and Zack Smith are struggling to put up meaningful numbers in the NHL but are contributing in their WEHL seasons.

Both are signed beyond this season and given their ratings will decline beyond where they can add value for their contracts to competing teams next year, this is their last chance to make an impact on a cup contender.

Smith may yet be trading in the NHL and find new life but Lehtra doesn't appear to have much hope on the horizon for addition NHL minutes. That said, he will still have 'salvage' value and can be moved to those rebuilding and needing to reach the cap floor.

Both players would fit well in a third line center role for those pushing for a playoff spot and win more than their fair share of faceoffs.

Jori Lehtera – 40 points in 49 games with a 52.5% FO win rate. 74 Faceoff rating, 65 passing

Zack Smith – 79 checking rating, 72 Faceoff, 83 Strength, 69 Scoring, 64 Defense.

Eric Gryba is also available for those in need of a cheap depth defenseman. Looking for a late pick.

Like always, Vegas is more than happy to package together multiple players.

Happy trading
