Parade of forwards at top of NHL draft

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 15:29

Vegas will be the fourth team for Deryk.

As a result, Vegas stockpiled a number of draft picks while also revealing the names of the first 24 players of their inaugural squad Wednesday night at the 2017 National Hockey League awards show and expansion draft at the T-Mobile Center.

The latter four were all on hand, making them the first members of the Golden Knights to dawn the brand new grey jersey.

The 2018 NHL Winter Classic on January 1 will feature the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers outdoors at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.

In the space of less than a week, the city will have seen its new Vegas Golden Knights unveil their inaugural jersey kit, hosted the NHL Awards at spanking new T-Mobile Arena, pick from lists of unprotected players in the first NHL expansion draft in 17 years, make a flurry of trades, and, after stockpiling 13 draft picks (including three among the top-15), participate in the new franchise's first entry draft this weekend at the largest rink in the NHL, Chicago's United Center.

The Golden Knights selected one player from each of the 30 National Hockey League teams to create their roster.

Not by a long shot.

With the selections of Glass, Suzuki, and Brannstrom along with the likes of veterans Marc Methot, James Neal and Marc-Andre Fleury, Vegas is putting together a solid roster for their first season.

The Knights also scooped up second and fourth round selections and the rights to a prospect from Tampa, a sixth from Buffalo, a first and third from Winnipeg as well as a fourth rounder and former 20-goal-scorer Reilly Smith from Florida.

Jones said he will try to prove that he should have been drafted higher. "You have to have skilled centermen in today's National Hockey League, and we got two of them".


The Edmonton Oilers traded forward Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders on Thursday for forward Ryan Strome. "It'll be tough, but I know what's coming... and I'm glad people will remember me as a good person, not just a goalie, and I think that's important for me, too", Fleury said. "I'm not looking to be the face of much".

"My skating has come along, and I could always shot the puck", he said. "The people of Las Vegas are going to be happy with what we did". Defensemen Matt Dumba and Marco Scandella plus centers Eric Staal and Erik Haula were all intriguing candidates, but Vegas settled for forward Erik Haula and a conditional 2017 or 2018 third-round pick, which probably won't be almost as valuable.

The Golden Knights also may have landed their goaltender of the future in 25-year-old Jean-Francois Berube from the New York Islanders.

Also eligible for the expansion draft were Utica Comets forwards Alexandre Grenier, Borna Rendulic and New Hartford native Michael Zalewski; defenseman Andrey Pedan and goaltender Richard Bachman.

After Vegas came away with a jackpot from the expansion draft, Foley's franchise goalie is even bolder. McPhee could trade Methot.

Islanders general manager Garth Snow is desperate to get the ship righted in Brooklyn and he took a step in that direction Wednesday.

The Golden Knights had to take at least nine defencemen, but ended up choosing 13 and added another two through trades. If he is able to acclimate quickly to the National Hockey League, the 30-year-old could be the next Alexander Radulov or Artemi Panarin. He began his career with the Florida Panthers, and played three seasons in the Sunshine State before signing with his hometown Canucks as a free-agent in 2012.

Most of those selected up front were depth types or prospects with minimal experience, including Oscar Lindberg, Tomas Nosek, William Carrier, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Teemu Pulkkinen and Brendan Leipsic.

The Golden Knights aren't ready to make any predictions yet, but once they get together in Vegas for the first time under coach Gerard Gallant, they'll start to figure out just how good they can be. He spent his entire three year career with the Tigers, playing 198 games adding 22 goals and 109 assists. But will McPhee keep the 32-year-old blueliner or deal him?
