Golden Knights NHL Draft Thread: Come chat with us as Vegas adds rookies
We’ll keep this running throughout the weekend, so let’s chat about who gets drafted and where.
Welcome to the 2019 NHL Draft. Things are expected to happen, heads are sure to roll, and we’re here to guide you through the entire weekend of shenanigans that may happen with the Vegas Golden Knights.
Vegas has the 17th pick in the draft in this pretty loaded class once you get past Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko. It’s set to start at 5 p.m., and then an early 10 a.m. start for rounds 2-7 tomorrow. We’ll be here to keep it going.
Here are the picks the Golden Knights will have at their disposal.
No. 82 (via WPG)
No. 86 (via NSH)
No. 135 (via MIN)
No. 139 (via MTL)
A reminder that the Golden Knights, as of time of publish, do not have a sixth- or seventh-round selection. Vegas received Minnesota’s fifth-round pick this year in the Brad Hunt trade, and traded this year’s seventh-round pick to Pittsburgh so that the Golden Knights could select goalie Jordan Kooy in the seventh round last year.
