Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf stayed with his rebuilding club through the deadline despite being a pending unrestricted free agent. However, there were no shortage of suitors for the veteran center.
One of them, apparently, was the Vegas Golden Knights.
"I don't want to dig too much into the details of everything," Getzlaf said Tuesday, according to The Athletic's Eric Stephens. "(General manager Bob Murray) was approached by a few different teams. Vegas, being one of them, I think, at some point. Were they part of the mix? I'm sure. They're a contender in our division."
Getzlaf's contract contains a full no-movement clause, per CapFriendly, so he would've controlled his own destiny in any deal.
