The Golden Knights have acquired Tomas Tatar from the Red Wings for a 2018 1st Round Pick, a 2019 2nd Round Pick and a 2021 3rd Round Pick.

No one expected the Golden Knights to be buyers at their first trade deadline but here we are. Tatar has picked up 16 goals and 12 assists (28 points) in 62 games with the Red Wings this season and should be a great fit on Vegas’ third line with Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch.

Tatar left Monday's game after being kneed in the head by a linesman.

Tatar was cross-checked in the linesman direction. When the linesman jumped to try and avoid a potential collision his knee caught Tatar in the head. Tatar wobbled off of the ice, but head coach Mike Babcock said Tatar is fine. The Red Wings are already dealing with injuries to Pavel Datsyuk and Gustav Nyquist, so losing Tatar for a period of time would be a rough way to start the season.

The Red Wings have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with restricted free agent Tomas Tatar.

Tatar, 23, recorded 19 goals and 20 assists (39 points) in 73 games with the Red Wings last season. The Red Wings did virtually nothing in free agency, which means that young players like Tatar will take on bigger roles in 2014-15. He played in the top-6 for a large portion of last season because the Wings were ravaged by injures. He will likely start the year on the third line with Riley Sheahan and Tomas Jurco, but with strong play could climb into the top-6 quickly. A 20-goal, 20 assist season should be Tatar's floor this year.
