On Monday, the Vegas Golden Knights acquired goaltender Adin Hill in a trade with San Jose Sharks for a fourth-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft. He is currently standing in the final years of his 2-year contract with the Sharks signed on August 4, 2021.
Last season he made a record of 10-11-1 with 2.66 goals against average, a .906 save percentage, and 2 shutouts in 25 games. Golden Knights general manager Kelly McCrimmon said, “He’s got room left in his development to continue to improve and impress as a goaltender”.

Logan Thompson is likely to be the No. 1 goalie for the Golden Knights, backed by Laurent Brossoit. Hill will likely be competing with Brossoit for playing time in the season. On the other hand, Robin Lehner is expected to be out of season because of hip surgeries.
Social media has a lot to say regarding Hill’s donning of Golden Knights armor, but one person may have a bit more to say than the rest of them. That’s none other than ex-Knights forward Jack Eichel. A meme on Eichel reacting to Hill’s trade on Twitter was shared recently.
Regarding Hill’s trade to Vegas, Sharks general manager Mike Grier said, “We have significantly increased our organizational depth at the goaltending position over the last six months. This trade provides an opportunity for Adin to compete for playing time while adding another asset that our organization can use in the future. We wish Adin the best in Vegas.”
