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

NHL Expansion Picks

NHL Expansion Picks

He also has a new team.

All of the Golden Knights' selections were announced during the National Hockey League awards show. "Work ethic is the main thing".

No wonder a rival GM said "I feel like I was just held hostage for the last two weeks".

"I think it's been exciting for our franchise, exciting time for our scouts", said Shero, who was hired as New Jersey's general manager in May 2015. Nashville celebrates the longest playoff run in franchise history at home October 10 against the Philadelphia Flyers. He had 30 points (13-17) in 69 games last season and has 126 points (45-81) in 258 career games. There's no hard feelings. "What surprised me was the quality of some of our forwards that we were able to get out of this situation, moving players around".

Expansion teams traditionally lack scorers, and this year protected lists didn't show many scorers available.

"It's not like I'm sitting here wishing I went to Jersey. So it doesn't matter to me".

By the time the National Hockey League entry draft concludes Saturday afternoon in Chicago, numerous players and draft picks selected by the Knights on Wednesday will be sent packing to other teams as general manager George McPhee begins transforming an abundance of unprotected, unsigned and unproven players into a competitive, 23-man roster by the time the Knights open the season on October 6 in Dallas. He played in parts of five seasons with the Swift Current Broncos and the Kootenay Ice, playing a total of 238 games collecting 118 goals and 121 assists.

"I think that's what made me have such a great start to the season", said Glass. Vegas' expansion draft choices - along with handful of players signed before the draft, most notably coveted Russian center Vadim Shipachyov out of the KHL - certainly appear to form a team that could make noise in the Pacific. "But it's something I definitely knew would eventually come". "And they believe in me". They went there for a hockey tournament. “The people of Las Vegas are going to be happy with what we did. NY got the No. 7 pick in a trade with Arizona and selected center Lias Andersson, whose father Niklas played in the league. He is 5-foot-11, 180 pounds but at 17 years old he's one of the youngest prospects in the draft so he has room to grow. Justin Schultz finished 10th in the voting for the Norris Trophy for top defenseman.

Highly touted Canadian center Gabriel Vilardi surprisingly slipped out of the top 10. The team's preseason home opener takes place September 26 vs. Los Angeles.

Perron will provide Vegas with a veteran who has 159 goals and 378 points in 652 games, giving the Golden Knights immediate experience while they build with many draft picks acquired in the draft process.

With the No. 15 pick, the Golden Knights chose defenseman Erik Brannstrom.

The league also had a special video tribute for Bryan Bickell after the Carolina Hurricanes forward was forced to retire at the end of the season after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Of course, you have reporters from local outlets that are at the Draft for the sole goal of covering their city's team's picks. Chicago sent its No. 26 pick to the Stars for picks No. 29 and 70.

"Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane call my name, and it can't be a better feeling", Jokiharu said.

Vegas selected center Cody Glass of the Portland Winterhawks during Thursday's draft in Chicago with the No. 6 overall pick. Marie of the OHL.

Vegas chose three goalies, 14 forwards and 13 defensemen, including Trevor van Riemsdyk and Brayden McNabb.

First-round picks always come with larger-than-life expectations.

Tampa Bay lost former Minnesota-Duluth defenseman Jason Garrison and former Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner heads to Vegas from Anaheim. They have many, many draft picks, and as much cap space as anyone, and seemingly the go-ahead from the owner to be patient. "That's more like it".
