Devils select Swiss center Nico Hischier with No. 1 pick

Another former Kootenay Ice player was drafted by the Golden Knights, defenseman Brayden McNabb.

Fleury was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2003 National Hockey League draft and has won three Stanley Cups with the Penguins.

McPhee continued his moves Thursday, swinging two trades to add draft picks in place of claimed players who might not have made the Golden Knights' roster.

Koekkoek was slated to be on the team's third-pair with some upside to grow into a more prominent role, but Garrison gives the Golden Knights a veteran skater who can play 18 or more minutes a night, plus the chance to hit pay dirt on the second-round pick.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights will make their regular-season debut on the road in Dallas on October 6 and host the Arizona Coyotes on October 10 in the first home game in franchise history. This will be the 55th NHL Entry Draft. The team finished in last place in the National Hockey League in the 2016-17 season.

First-round picks nearly always see action in the NHL - just 13 percent have not skated at least one game in the league - and, on average, are 50-point scorers if the pick is a forward. They traded their second pick, the 45th overall, to Columbus for 6-2 power forward Keegan Kolesar.

However, we are often enthralled by the here and now, and this is basically a 10-day window where teams can attempt to get better immediately.

Forward Tomas Nosek was selected from the Detroit Red Wings followed by two more forwards, Cody Eakin of the Dallas Stars and Jonathan Marchessault of the Florida Panthers.

"We were very happy to get Hague", McPhee said. Seven teams opted for the latter approach; one of them, the Islanders, were the only team to protect five defensemen.

"I didn't know that was coming", Fleury said about his new fans' enthusiasm. The only other time the franchise had the first pick was in 1979, when the then-Colorado Rockies selected Rob Ramage. He seems nearly certain to be the Golden Knights starter with two years on his contract. He is a physical player who has a scorer's touch.

A forward from Pori, Finland, Haula played in 266 regular-season games in four seasons with the Wild while tallying 89 points (42 goals, 47 assists). "As far as a year ago, I loved my time for many reasons".

Boston center Patrice Bergeron won the Selke Trophy for the fourth time as the NHL's best defensive forward, and San Jose's Brent Burns won his first Norris Trophy as the top defenseman.

When Murray suffered an injury during warmups of the first game of the playoffs, Fleury stepped in and would eventually lead his team to the Eastern Conference Final. At the end of all this, of course, is a league that is just a little more diluted, with another market that will have to prove itself, with an owner who might be too involved for his own good. "Sorry, words can't describe how I feel right now", he said. "He said I should embrace the opportunity".

"He's a smart, smart player". It also has two selections in the fifth and sixth.

"They were at the top of our list", McPhee said. "They probably reached out to a lot of players". So could some of the draft picks the Golden Knights did an incredible job harvesting.

The Golden Knights added a pair of physical defensemen in Marc Methot of the Ottawa Senators and Alexei Emelin from the Montreal Canadiens along with Boston Bruins defenseman Colin Miller, who has registered a slap shot measured at 105 miles per hour.

Jones said he will try to prove that he should have been drafted higher. "I'm proud that I played again for the Blues". "It gives us cap space to do some things". "We thought that when that happened, he'd be an outstanding goaltender".

"We were well prepared and ready". Each one needs to be handled individually.
