Fleury picked up by Vegas in Wednesday's expansion draft


At 10:15 p.m. Eastern time, the Pittsburgh Penguins' goaltender of 14 years, the holder of most of the franchise's records, the holder of much of a city's collective heart, was formally selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the NHL's Expansion Draft.

Gabriel Valardi of the Windsor Spitfires in Ontario is a powerful forward with a goal-scoring touch, but he may also be gone before Vegas picks unless Dallas and Colorado both go with defensemen at picks Nos. "This has worked out very well for the Vegas Golden Knights, and we expect to put a good, entertaining club on the ice". "I didn't have a team to look after this year, so I could find time to go out and watch players and be involved in it". They now have 13 draft picks for the upcoming draft, including three in the first and three in the second. "It feels awesome to go to Vegas".

On Wednesday night, when McPhee drafted the 30 players from each team, he also made 10 official trades before the lift of the league-wide roster freeze on Thursday morning, when more players and picks could be swapped.

Griffin Reinhart joins the Golden Knights as a former Edmonton Oil King who won the WHL title twice and a Memorial Cup.

Side deals prevented the team from acquiring players such as Eric Staal and Matt Dumba. Washington's MacLellan saw defenseman Nate Schmidt swiped from his team, leaving the Capitals with a vacancy in the top-four of the blue line and even more concerning salary cap constraints as the team now tries to fill that hole. "I think if the three of us can do something special there it's going to be awesome".

The Calgary Flames parted with Deryk Engelland who played his WHL career with the Moose Jaw Warriors.

"I think that's what made me have such a great start to the season", said Glass. He was a member of the Colorado Avalanche when that franchise moved to a new market in 1995-96, the Carolina Hurricanes when that franchise moved to a new market in 1997-98 and the Minnesota Wild when that franchise joined the National Hockey League as an expansion team in 2000-01; he was claimed in that expansion draft.

Poile was recognized after the Predators' first Western Conference title and Stanley Cup Final appearance. Our scouts and our hockey staff deserve an A-plus for the job they did, and I don't think we could have done any better.

Robert Mueller clarifies Trump-Russia investigation boundaries with Congress
Of course, Trump could delete the tweets at any time - he's already deleted a handful of tweets during his presidency. It is true that both Comey and Mueller worked together as Department of Justice colleagues during the George W.

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

Then Vegas makes the first pick in franchise history.

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. They needed to keep their defense in tact, so someone was going to be left out, and James Neal was that guy. The 22-year-old defenseman who just completed his senior season with the Minnesota Gophers was part of a larger deal between the Knights and New York Islanders, who were also trying to protect a number of its younger players in the expansion draft. But without even bribing Vegas with anything in exchange, the Golden Knights selected 31-year-old defenseman Alexei Emelin, who the Canadiens might have been down on anyway.

For teams, such as the Toronto Maples, who are looking to add a player of substance, it doesn't leave much.

"We don't have enough kids in that age group, understandably, because the expansion process gives us one level of player and the draft gives us another", McPhee said.
