LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Golden Knights have traded another player for draft picks, the team announced Monday.

Forward Nikita Gusev was traded to the New Jersey Devils for a 2020 third-round draft pick and a 2021 second-round draft pick.

“We did our best to accommodate Nikita and his salary request but were unable to do so. He is a good person, a good player and we wish him well in New Jersey,” the president of hockey operations for Golden Knights, George McPhee, said in a statement.

Gusev was signed to a one-year, entry-level deal in April.
