Vegas Golden Knights' roster revealed: NHL draft expansion results

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.

Fleury took the stage in a Golden Knights jersey to wild cheers from his new home fans.

The desert gambling mecca is hosting the NHL's annual postseason awards show tonight, when the league also will reveal the Vegas Golden Knights' choices in the expansion player draft to stock the club with talent for its inaugural season in the fall.

The fifth-round draft pick acquired by Vegas from Carolina originally belonged to the Boston Bruins.

We have stomach his excesses for more than two years now. "We are at a stage of a journey of no return", he said. He said, "In the last two years, some senators have been meeting with their people quarterly".

The Golden Knights got to pick 30 unprotected players Wednesday night, one from each team. "There's more skill than I anticipated and there's more than enough character guys. To have the fans and the community behind us, I think it will be fun".

Marc-Andre Fleury: The past two seasons have added two Stanley Cup championships with Pittsburgh to Fleury's résumé, but the goaltender has also been pushed aside during that time in favor of 23-year-old Matt Murray.

While all eyes will be on Las Vegas' picks, it figures to be a busy night for the Penguins at the NHL Awards Show. As I said, the people of Las Vegas are going to be happy with what we did.

But Vegas' hometown team is in the spotlight for the first time this year, reaching a major milestone in its process of becoming the NHL's 31st franchise - and doing it during a heat wave. The other was to acquire additional draft picks to help us achieve long-term success.

"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.

With all that in play, the Wolves were forced to also offer up the No. 7 pick this season to push the deal over the top. Butler is reunited with Tom Thibodeau in the trade, who coached him from 2011 until 2014, when Thibodeau was sacked .

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.

"I didn't know that was coming", Fleury said about his new fans' enthusiasm.

"I found out (Monday) night when (Kings GM) Rob Blake called me". You've built a lot of relationships.

The next wave created a stir. The Penguins visit the Chicago Blackhawks on October 5 in a matchup of the only teams to win the Cup three times in the salary-cap era. Hopefully we can help grow the game here in Vegas. "It's an exciting point in my career to be part of something special". He became the first defenseman to record back-to-back 75-plus point seasons since Brian Leetch achieved the feat with the New York Rangers in 1995-96 and 1996-97. They have defencemen (Marc Methot, Jason Garrison and Brayden McNabb) capable of playing top-pairing minutes and forwards (James Neal, David Perron and Cody Eakin) capable of making a difference. As a result, general manager Doug Wilson avoided the headache of having to make a real impact player available to the Golden Knights.

By signing Schlemko, the Sharks gave themselves an insurance policy against the likelihood that the Golden Knights would have eaten into their blue line depth by drafting a defenseman.
