Vegas Golden Knights Expansion Draft

Postby Divergent » Mon Jun 19, 2017 5:52 pm

The Vegas Golden Knights will be making Expansion Draft selections on Wednesday, June 21 2017. The professional hockey club has given notice to the other NHL teams they have up until today to tender offers (instead of picking a player from a team Draft style, a team can make a deal with Vegas for a particular player). This way the Vegas staff has all day Tuesday to finalize Expansion Draft picks.

Teams turned in their protected lists on Saturday, and it was made public on Sunday morning. NHL teams must protect seven forwards, three defensemen and one goalie; or eight skaters and one goalie. Any player with a no-movement clause in his contract must be protected. However, the player can waive it. All first- and second-year players and unsigned draft picks cannot be selected by Vegas.

You can do your own mock Expansion Draft (with the correct non-protected players) with the Vegas Knights on the TSN Web site:

The Golden Knights will be playing in the Pacific Division (Western Conference) beginning in the 2017-18 NHL Season, with their first preseason game on Sunday, September 17 2017.

I'm actually looking forward to this new team. I'd love to see them in the new NHL game

I don't follow hockey, but I knew Vegas was getting a team. Is a team just moving to Vegas or is this a completely new team? If so, what other team in the other conference is also new?

Completely new franchise. This is the only new team being added this upcoming season.

How does that work? Do the conferences not have an equal amount of teams?

They kind of redrafted the conferences a couple of years ago. This resulted in the Eastern Conference having 2 more teams overall than the Western Conference.

With the addition of the Vegas Golden Knights, the Western Conference will still be down 1 team.

The NHL recently purchased the rights to the old Seattle Metropolitans so there is some speculation that Seattle may be the next expansion city to fill that gap. Other reports have Kansas City. Every few years Quebec City is talked about as well, but if it's Quebec City one of the other Eastern Conference teams will have to move over to the Western Conference- probably the Columbus Blue Jackets.
