The hockey world was fixed on Las Vegas Wednesday night when the Golden Knights inaugural roster was announced at the NHL Awards show.

There were a few names that made sense for the Knights to select from including Michael Grabner, Anti Raanta, Jesper Fast and Oscar Lindberg. Vegas went for a sensible option choosing the young Oscar Lindberg.
Hello again! @NHLRumorsDaily here with another rumor roundup, this one coming with less than 12 hours until the Vegas Golden Knights pick their roster. As you could imagine, numerous trades with Vegas have been made, however, the Rangers have NOT reached a deal with George McPhee and the Knights, as per NYPost’s Larry Brooks. The Rangers were speculated to be working on a trade, to protect valuable backup goaltender Antti Raanta, as well as 27 goal scorer Michael Grabner.
