Devils on the clock with No. 1 pick in NHL draft

Devils on the clock with No. 1 pick in NHL draft

In addition, the National Hockey League allowed teams to make side deals with Vegas so as to allow them to acquire assets in exchange for not selecting certain players.

"While I am disappointed that I will not be able to play, I have to consider the severity of my condition and how the treatments have impacted my life both on and off the ice", Hossa said in a statement. Here are seven questions that should get answered before the season starts on October 6.

Roughly a day and a half after adding 31 players to their organization, the Vegas Golden Knights went back to work at the 2017 NHL Draft.

Marchessault led the Panthers in goals this season.

The six-foot-one rubberstopper has been solid as a dependable backup to Washington's No. 1, Braden Holtby, posting a 2.05 GAA and.926 save percentage in 23 appearances for the Capitals last season. Fleury said it with his big, shiny smile, flashing the humility and kindness that made him a fan favorite over 13 seasons tending goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Golden Knights appeared to land a particularly strong corps of blueliners, providing the foundation for the tough, young team envisioned by general manager George McPhee. The Knights were allowed one player from each roster for a minimum of 14 forwards, nine defencemen and three goaltenders.

"They're way past getting off the ground", Nashville general manager David Poile said. McPhee understands the struggles any expansion side can and will endure, but I'm guessing he thinks the Knights will win more than the dozen or so regular-season games the article predicts in their first season. The Islanders sent the Golden Knights their first-round pick this season, their 2019 second-round pick and forward Mikhail Grabovski, who may not play next season because of lingering concussion symptoms.

The Flames lose defenseman Deryk Engelland to expansion. "Usually, you're talking to teams or thinking of teams and you have some sort of idea of how they're built or their history or whatever it may be, and they are completely fresh". "For it to finally happen, it's wonderful". "So it was a fairly easy decision on my part, and I'm excited for it".

Host John Matisz is joined by Matthew Coller, NHL writer for ESPN Insider and Wild analyst for 1500 ESPN, to recap and assess the Vegas expansion draft just hours after its completion.

The Golden Knights' best acquisition may have come 11 months ago when owner Bill Foley hired McPhee.

"I feel like we have created a great team and we can grow from here. tonight is the culmination of five mock drafts". A player who could thrive with extended playing time and wants more money that Vegas would be willing to give him could go to the new team. To see the trophies up close and personal, touch them, get a picture with them, it makes it all a little bit more real.

Fleury was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2003 National Hockey League draft. And players were in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft but were not signed by an NHL team are also eligible for 2017 draft provided they were born after June 30, 1997. Vegas's selection was 35-year-old Deryk Engelland, one of two pending unrestricted free agents the Golden Knights drafted.

"I heard we sold out our season tickets already so it's great to have the fans and the community behind us", said Fleury, who got the loudest cheer of the night from the Vegas crowd at T-Mobile Arena.

In addition to the 30 players added via expansion draft, the Golden Knights also added seven more players and 10 draft picks through 10 trades. "James Neal (the wing from Nashville and a 20-goal scorer in each of his nine National Hockey League seasons) is one, but he's a hell of player".

If the players selected in those spots become superstars, the Eastern Conference rivalry could take hold in future Stanley Cup Playoff battles. They needed to keep their defense in tact, so someone was going to be left out, and James Neal was that guy.
