BREAKING: New York ships Tavish DeGroot to LA for 1st Rounder!


Recommended Posts

Late Saturday night, just days before the looming VHL Trade Deadline, a major deal was struck by two of the biggest markets in the North American conference. The west coast and east coast came together in the late hours on Saturday night to negotiate a trade that would see VHL rookie defenseman Tavish DeGroot head to Los Angeles. While this move may come as a surprise to some, many others will claim the writing has been on the wall since DeGroot's controversial arrival to New York following his draft day. Many rumors swirled around the future of DeGroot after he fell to the second round to the New York Americans. After much back and forth debating and a league-implemented contract arbitration, the two sides came to an agreement on an entry-level contract just days before the start of the regular season. DeGroot has managed 20 goals and 19 assists for 39 points in 52 contests this season. Going the other way will be the Stars' first round pick for this upcoming Season 83 VHL Entry Draft. DeGroot will go from a team in the middle of a rebuild to an immediate contender in Los Angeles. Time will tell if LA's gamble will pay off as their window to win is now, but regardless of the result, DeGroot should be a cornerstone player for them for seasons to come. Stay tuned to VHL.com for more breaking trade news in the coming days leading up to the VHL Trade Deadline!

Huh, interesting. Guess that basically ended up being an old school "GM 1st for your own player" deal. Except delayed by 1 season?

And he’s a top 4 player in that draft who was selected 20th overall and this LAS pick will be something like 10-16. I’d like “High end player for cheap x2” for 500
