The NHL invalidated the trade that sent Evgenii Dadonov from the Vegas Golden Knights to the Anaheim Ducks because the limited no-trade clause in Dadonov’s contract included the Ducks.

Hours after the trade, which shipped the 33-year-old right winger to the Ducks with a second-round pick for defenseman John Moore and Ryan Kesler‘s contract, the Knights said the team “(became) aware of an issue with respect to the trade.”

The issue was that Dadonov, who was traded to Vegas from the Ottawa Senators last year, had a partial no-trade clause in the deal he signed with Ottawa in October 2020. Vegas was not on that list and acquired him before the start of this season.

Anaheim, however, was on the list, and that presented a problem Monday when the Knights tried to move on from Dadonov’s $5 million cap hit.

TRADE DEADLINE WINNERS, LOSERS: Contenders bulk up, but no goalie fix could hurt some

The Golden Knights had dealt Dadonov and took on injured Moore and the contract of injured Kesler to give themselves some cap flexibility to accommodate a trade for Jack Eichel earlier in the season.

According to Cap Friendly, now that the Dadonov trade has been voided, the team has only $405,833 of usable cap space, with key players Alex Martinez and Mark Stone still to return from long-term injured reserve.
