On Wednesday night it became official. The Vegas Golden Knights took defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk from the Chicago Blackhawks.
In 158 career regular season games, van Riemsdyk scored eight goals with 23 assists for the Blackhawks. He signed as a college free agent on March 25, 2014.
From CHI, VGK claim Trevor van Riemsdyk, defenceman. Much speculation that TVR may be flipped tomorrow to CAR.

No additional trade with Chicago was announced on Wednesday.
They couldn't have picked a more smiley player.
