Vegas Golden Knights fill out roster with National Hockey League expansion draft

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 15:55

"Going through it today, it's been a harder draft that most so it's taking some time. three picks, it's a lot to manage and you really have to focus".

"We have to move some contracts", McPhee said Thursday night. “I was a little surprised by that. "Obviously I'm really excited to get this started".

Vegas to open at Dallas • The expansion Vegas Golden Knights will make their regular-season debut in Dallas on October 6 and host Arizona on October 10 in the first home game in franchise history.

In one of several trades made by the Golden Knights on Wednesday, Minnesota Wild rookie forward and Baldwinsville native Alex Tuch was sent to Vegas for a conditional 2017 or 2018 third-round National Hockey League entry draft pick.

"They're way past getting off the ground", Nashville general manager David Poile said.

It has been 17 years since the NHL had an expansion draft when the Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild entered the league. He did a masterful job of making sure teams did business with him, rather than each other, in the lead-up to the expansion draft and it slowed the anticipated redistribution of players.

The honors capped a remarkable sophomore season for the 20-year-old center, who won the scoring title and led the Oilers back to the Stanley Cup playoffs after an 11-year absence.

Fleury now seems nearly certain to be the Golden Knights' starter with two years on his contract. "Words can't describe how I feel right now".

Fleury will have some help in that community outreach from a local.

From Tampa Bay, Vegas picked up defenseman Jason Garrison, who had nine power-play goals last season, along with forward Nikita Gusev, a 2017 second-round pick and a 2018 fourth-pick for expansion draft considerations.

"It's good to get a deal done", Engelland said. But this team also isn't likely to be very good in the short term. For it to finally happen, its fantastic.


It was a short jaunt for the 35-year-old blueliner from his off-season home in the suburbs of Summerlin - which made the decision even easier for both parties.

The Golden Knights' trade acquisitions also are intriguing. The only other time the franchise had the first pick was in 1979, when the then-Colorado Rockies selected Rob Ramage.

Vegas emerged from the expansion draft with 15 defensemen, and McPhee alluded before the expansion draft to trading some of them. “The people of Las Vegas are going to be happy with what we did. Doesn't matter where, they're going to be in this draft 20 years from now.

"A couple of days ago, they threw the interest out there but I didn't think much of it", said Engelland, calling from backstage at the T-Mobile Arena and the scene of the NHL Expansion Draft.

Vegas Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury speaks with the media Wednesday, June 21, 2017, in Las Vegas.

Fleury's response: "I love you, too!"

After meeting with the Board of Governors earlier in the day, Foley said he was already “very proud” of the roster assembled by McPhee.

The Golden Knights were for real. Engelland was picked by the Vegas Golden Knights in the National Hockey League expansion draft.

Fans of the last round of expansion in Minnesota and Columbus, along with those of the St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks, Buffalo Sabres, Washington Capitals, Florida Panthers, Arizona Coyotes, Nashville Predators, San Jose Sharks, and modern day Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets - the 12 current National Hockey League franchises never to hoist Lord Stanley's mug - will soldier along in part because of the fresh blood they've seen their teams infused with this week.
