Capitals acquire G Logan Thompson from Golden Knights

Logan Thompson

The Washington Capitals acquired goalie Logan Thompson from the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday for a third-round pick in the current NHL Draft.

Thompson, 27, was 25-14-5 with a 2.70 goals-against average last season and a .908 save percentage. He recorded one shutout in 46 games. His goals-against average was 10th among all NHL goalies with at least 45 games played.

In four playoff appearances last season, Thompson was 2-2 with a 2.45 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.

Over four seasons with Vegas, the undrafted free agent has gone 56-32-11 with a 2.67 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage. He was officially a rookie in the 2022-23 season and finished second to the Edmonton Oilers’ Stuart Skinner in All-Rookie voting.

In exchange, Vegas received the No. 83 overall pick in the 2024 draft that originally belonged to the New York Islanders via the Toronto Maple Leafs. Before Saturday’s trade, the Golden Knights did not have a selection between rounds 2 through 5 because of previous trades.

Vegas, which selected winger Trevor Connelly in the first round Friday, now has four selections on the second day of the draft. The Golden Knights have one pick in the sixth round and two in the seventh round.
