Rumour Report: Vegas selection rumours surface

We're just moments away from learning the 30 players Vegas has selected in the expansion draft. And as is the case with all things NHL, rumours have started to leak out.

  • Here is a list of the rumoured players Vegas are considering (or have decided to take). As you can see, not every team has a rumour attached to it.
  • Anaheim: Clayton Stoner (Rumours suggest Anaheim has a trade in place to protect Sami Vatanen and Josh Manson)
  • Boston Bruins: Colin Miller
  • Chicago: Trevor van Riemsdyk or Marcus Kruger (Van Riemsdyk is likely the selection, Kruger traded afterwards.)
  • Calgary: Brett Kulak
  • Columbus: David Clarkson
  • Detroit: Xavier Ouellet
  • Dallas: Cody Eakin or Kari Lehtonen
  • Edmonton: Griffin Reinhart
  • Florida: Jonathan Marchessault, Jason Demers or Jaromir Jagr (Florida is trying to make a deal with Vegas to protect Marchessault)
  • Los Angeles: Kyle Clifford

  • Minnesota: Marco Scandella or Matt Dumba (Minnesota continues to talk trade with Vegas)
  • Montreal: Alexei Emelin, Charles Hudon or Brandon Davidson
  • Nashville: Pontus Aberg, James Neal or Colton Sissons
  • New York Islanders: Nik Kulemin or Mikhail Grabovski (Kulemin is the likely pick, Grabovski traded afterwards along with a 1st.)
  • New York Rangers: Antti Raanta or Michael Grabner
  • Ottawa: Fredrik Claesson or Marc Methot (Ottawa may be willing to deal a 1st to protect Methot)
  • Philadelphia: Jordan Weal or Michal Neuvirth
  • Pittsburgh: Marc-Andre Fleury (Sounds as though he will start the year as Vegas' number one, despite reports suggesting he would be flipped post-draft)

  • Tampa Bay: Unknown (Tampa has a deal with Vegas, but no details have surfaced)
  • Toronto: Kerby Rychel, Martin Marincin or Brendan Leipsic
  • Vancouver: Luca Sbisa or Brendan Gaunce
  • Washington: Philipp Grubauer, Karl Alzner or Nate Schmidt (Would like Grubauer, but may be able to get him in free agency instead of the expansion draft)
  • Winnipeg: Toby Enstrom
  • Not every team has a player rumoured to be on Vegas' radar just yet. But as we know, they have to make one selection from all 30 teams. We'll update this list throughout the day if and when new rumours surface.
