The Vegas Golden Knights have traded Evgenii Dadonov and a conditional second-round pick to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman John Moore and Ryan Kesler‘s contract, both teams announced Monday.

Anaheim will receive Vegas’ second-round selection in 2023 or 2024.

Dadonov has 15 goals and 12 assists in 62 contests this season, his first with the Golden Knights. The 33-year-old is signed through the 2022-23 campaign and carries a $5-million cap hit.

The Ducks acquired Moore on Saturday in the trade sending blue-liner Hampus Lindholm to the Boston Bruins. Moore has suited up in just seven NHL games this season – all with the Bruins – and has one assist.

The 31-year-old is signed through 2022-23 and is a veteran of 544 NHL games.

Kesler, 37, hasn’t played since 2019 and is on long-term injured reserve. This season is the final year of his contract, which carries an average annual value of $6.875 million; it won’t count against the Golden Knights’ salary cap.

Originally selected by the Florida Panthers in the third round of the 2007 draft, Dadonov has 249 points in 397 career NHL games.
