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

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

"He taught us how to make football work, and he put ASU on the map long before it was a full-scale university. I think it will go well". And Marc-Andre Fleury is already a fan favorite, receiving a nice welcome when he was introduced to the fans in Vegas at the expansion draft. And we were ready for this draft. "What surprised me was the quality of some of our forwards that we were able to get out of this situation, moving players around. This could not have gone better in my mind".

Another possibility for the Golden Knights is Eeli Tolvanen.

"I'm really pleased with what's available", McPhee told reporters in Las Vegas on Sunday. They have surplus defensemen left over from the expansion draft that they need to trade.

Trades can still happen and the National Hockey League free agency period begins on July 1 at noon. His roster is off to a good start with players like center Vadim Shipachyov, signed as a free agent, as well as forwards James Neal and Erik Haula; defensemen Deryk Engelland, Nate Schmidt and Shea Theodore; and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, all acquired in the expansion draft.

But McPhee's draft selections of Marchessault (30 goals in 2016-17), Neal (23) and David Perron (18), plus an accompanying trade with the Florida Panthers for Reilly Smith (15) assures that the team will have players with a proven scoring touch. In one such example, Vegas did not select Matt Dumba, Marco Scandella or Eric Staal from the Minnesota Wild and got in return prospect Alex Tuch and a conditional third round pick.

That said, the breadth approach to the 2017 NHL Draft has given the Golden Knights a dozen prospects who, with some luck, can hopefully step into the lineup in two years just as the team's young core begins to evolve into a more composed and mature team. Few teams generate more excitement and optimism than the Toronto Maple Leafs and Edmonton Oilers right now, and they've built their ascending franchises on No. 1 overall picks. They turned them into five centers, four wings, two defensemen and two goaltenders with a mix of skill and size. Either way, the Flyers have a player who could grow the team in a year or two.

But Hischier is just over 6 feet tall and listed at 179 pounds and will need to put on more muscle to succeed in the National Hockey League. But when you're a slow-footed defenseman, there's probably nothing better for resurrecting your career than playing tough minutes on Vegas ice.

The draft did see a record number of Finnish first rounders (six) as well as the highest ever pick from France, Alexandre Texier. They didn't plan to go big after going small, but that's how it worked out.

Kush's intense style figured prominently in his firing in October 1979 for what the university said was his interference in an internal investigation of allegations by a former player of physical and mental harassment against the coach. "That didn't happen, but I'm fortunate now. I'll take those emotions that I had last night and just use it as motivation".

Vegas is picking sixth overall, where the team hopes to acquire a franchise player.

He had 51 points in 49 games for the AHL Marlies last season. So could some of the draft picks the Golden Knights did an incredible job harvesting.

As for the impact of the expansion draft to the league, it is expected to give a major blow to the other teams. "It helps us fill in the middle".

And with three first-round picks for Friday's NHL Entry Draft, more are on the way. "I don't know what to say".

It was thought that Vegas might load up on goalies, but McPhee passed on intriguing options like Philipp Grubauer, Petr Mrazek and Antti Raanta and instead went for a surplus of defencemen _ and more apparent trade value. One person even shouted that he loved the newest member of the team. "I'm not too sure".

"It was just about him growing up and maturing", McPhee said at the scouting combine. "We're not going to fast-track anyone". The 32-year-old has played 579 games with Columbus and, most recently, Ottawa, where he was a top-pairing defenceman. This is a very good trade by the Penguins considering they want someone to protect Sidney Crosby which is a role Reaves is very familiar with.
