VEGAS (March 6, 2024) – Vegas Golden Knights General Manager Kelly McCrimmon announced today, March 6, that the club has acquired defenseman Noah Hanifin from the Calgary Flames as part of a three-team trade involving the Philadelphia Flyers. In exchange for Hanifin, Calgary will receive a first-round pick, defenseman Daniil Miromanov, and a conditional third-round pick from Vegas. Philadelphia will receive a fifth-round pick in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft from Vegas.

Hanifin, 27, is currently in his ninth season in the NHL and has collected 274 points (60 G, 214 A) in 659 games. This season with Calgary, Hanifin led the team’s defensemen in scoring with 35 points (11 G, 24 A) and posted a +13 rating after appearing in each of the club’s 61 games. The 2023-24 campaign marks the third-consecutive season that the 6-foot-3 defenseman has reached at least 30 points, and the fifth time in his career. Hanifin’s 11 goals this season are the most he’s scored in the NHL, with three of them coming on the power play. Prior to his time in Calgary, the native of Boston, Massachusetts, spent three years with the Carolina Hurricanes, skating in 239 games and collecting 83 points (18 G, 65 A).

Hanifin spent one year at Boston College before professional play and finished with 23 points (5 G, 18 A) in 37 games. When making his NCAA debut with the Eagles at 17-years-old, he became the youngest player in the school’s history to play for the program. Following his freshman season, he was drafted by Carolina in the first round (5th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Internationally, Hanifin has represented the United States three times at the IIHF World Championship (2019, 2017, 2016), twice at the IIHF World Junior Championship (2015, 2014), and spent one season (2013-14) in the USA Hockey National Team Development Program.
